Filter Cleaning

Pool Filter Cleaning – Typically, filters are taken apart and cleaned every 4-6 month. The average cost of Filter cleaning is $75-$95, if it is done by a pool professional. A clean filter can save you money on electricity, since a clean filter, filters out more particles each hour.

Majority of DE filters have 8 elements which are called grids. DE or diatomaceous earth sits on the surface of the grids. DE’s structure lets the water go through, but does not let the small particles pass, therefore the water gets cleaned and small debris sit on top of DE inside the filter.

During filter cleaning grids are rinsed, inside of the filter is also rinsed. Orings are replaced, if needed. After the filter is securly closed, DE is added to the skimmer, and flow of water will take it to the inside of filter where it will sit on the surface of each grid.

Warning: Let a professional clean your pool filter. Great amount of pressure builds up inside the filter. This can cause severe bodily harm or death.
