Swimming Pool Filter Repair
Swimming pool filters are the component that actually clean the water,
removing small particles as water is pushed through it by the pump. Of course,
if there is no water flow, there is no filtration. There are three main types of swimming pool filters: Sand filters,
Cartridge filters, and Diatomaceous Earth filters. There are many
variables, so it is important to know what type of filter you have before any
attempt to repair it. Different filter designs and materials mean a variety of
greatly different potential repair issues, so the best tool you have is the
owner's manual. It is important to know how the filter works, in order to
know when something is wrong. Often, the filter gets "blamed" for working
improperly, when, actually, there is a chemical or other problem with the pool.
Filters are fairly simple, and usually, when properly maintained, are trouble
free for many years. Here, we'll give you an overview of the
different types of swimming pool filters, how they work, how to operate
different types of filters, and tips on simple repairs and maintenance.
Types of Pools
There are basically two types of swimming pools, and within that several
sub-types. All pools, regardless of their type, have the same general
properties, and the same needs: cleaning, chemistry, and filtration. We will
discuss the basics of each of those aspects.
In-ground swimming pools, ( also termed "inground" or "in ground" ) are
permanent, irremovable structures, which, as the name implies, are built into
the ground. They are made sometimes of concrete and plaster or "gunite". In
Oklahoma, there are also many in-ground swimming pools which are installed as
packages, with vinyl liners, and, becoming ever more popular, fiberglass pools.
Some people bury above ground pools completely or partially in the ground, but
that doesn't make them in-ground pools. These pools are designed to be built on
top of the ground, and have little strength against pressure from outside the
wall. We'll discuss them under another heading.
In-ground concrete pools are custom built, and usually the most expensive, but
also the most versatile. Just about any shape or feature you would want can be
built into a concrete pool, including vanishing edges, and elaborate waterfalls.
In-ground vinyl lined pools are the most popular here in Oklahoma, because they
are much less expensive to build, often easier to clean, and, with proper
installation and care, last just as long as concrete pools.
