Pool Filter Cleaning
Pool filters are a vital part in the functioning of any swimming pool as the catch the parts of a pool that can affect its appearance, health and PH levels of your swimming pool resulting in more frequent repairs and maintenance. A filter needs to be maintained regularly to ensure that it is clear and able to complete its functions in filtering the undesirable assets from your pool. Here we will answer some of the common questions from our clients and how this service offered by our team at Mission Viejo Pool Cleaning Service and Maintenance are able to assist you in keeping a well maintained swimming pool.
Why do my filters need cleaning?
The filters in your swimming pool filter out the grease and debris from your pool so that it is not sitting in the area that you are swimming and making your swimming pool dirty. If your filters are not cleaned, they will start to get clogged up with the debris they are filtering and be unable to filter anything more. Liken this to a water filter in your home, if it is clogged it is no longer able to complete its function as a filter as water is unable to flow freely through it.
How often should I have them cleaned?
If you are having your pool maintained on a regular basis, we do a clean of these each month to ensure that they are clean and able to complete their function correctly. This will also help to save the drawing of less power of your swimming pool. We provide a more thorough clean every 6 months to ensure they are completely clean of any grease or grime build up which could affect their operations.
Benefits of Clean Filters
Having a clean swimming pool filter means that you will have a clean swimming pool. They help to retain the oils and grease that naturally come off our skin as well as the grease from the sunscreen we put on before going out in the sun, which is a common element that our filters collect and can cause a buildup on the filters. Having the filters cleared of this grease and oil clean up can ensure that your filters are able to have water free flowing through them which will draw less power and ensure that your pool can operate to its best abilities as well as repel algae buildup if the pool is unable to have its water cleaned and rotated.
Filters will have a longer lifespan if they are being cleaned regularly, but if they are not they could require replacement every couple of months. The average life span of a filter in a well maintained pool is one to two years. Our team at Mission Viejo Pool Cleaning Service and Maintenance are skilled in the replacement of these filters and have strong connections in the industry to help get these at a reduced cost for our clients.
