Sand Filter or Cartridge Filter?

There are benefits to both types of Pool Filters but it depends on your pool, your pool environment and the amount of pool maintenance you want to perform. It may also be worth considering what your water demands are as to which Pool Filter you would choose. Call us today for a friendly onsite chat about what you need.

Sand Filter or Filter Media change – How often?

We usually recommend to change your filter media every 5 to 7 years, depending on the load your pool has had. It is a maintenance task that will ensure your pool will looks its best and refresh your pool filter. There are a range of media now available that include:

  • Sand media
  • Glass media
  • Volcanic Rock Media
  • Plastic Media

If you are unsure how old your media is and it could be greater than 5 years, we would recommend a change.  Usual costs start at around $350 and upwards depending on the size of the filter and the media type you choose. You will need to think about if the old media can put into a nearby garden or required to be taken off site.  If the filter is much older than 5 years you may want to enquire about a new complete Media Filter for peace of mind.
