Filtration Systems Need Regular CleaningBy
Filtration systems need to be broken down and cleaned periodically.
Filters are designed to collect dirt out of the pool and the pool operator then sends this dirt to waste by backwashing. However, this will not completely clean out your filter. After backwashing, depending on what type of filter you have, some debris is left inside your filter and can only be removed by a proper filter cleaning several times yearly.
Not having certain filters cleaned regularly can ruin internal filter parts costing hundreds of dollars.
