Above Ground Filters

There are many different types of above ground pool filters. You have sand filters, cartridge filters and DE filters. Sand filters capture particles down to very small sizes, and does not have a true cut off size below which particles will always pass. The sand filter collects and attract the debris as small as 20 to 40 microns. Cartridge filters have a greater surface area than sand allowing for fewer clogs and easier maintenance. They run at lower pressure than sand which puts less back-pressure on the pump, providing more flow and turnover.Cartridge element filters trap debris as small as 10 to 15 microns. Diatomaceous earth (D.E.) is mined and is the fossilized exoskeletons of tiny diatoms. They are used to coat "grids" in the filter housing and act as tiny sieves allowing for the removal of debris as small as 5 microns. The main components of any above ground pool are the filter and pump. The above ground pool filters help remove debris and filter the water out. With the help of the pump, water is circulated and chemicals are distributed throughout the pool.
