Sand Filters

Swimming pool sand filters

Swimming pool sand filters are a common type of filter used in swimming pool filtration systems. These filters are so called because they contain a layer of sand inside, which is responsible for retaining the impurities and suspended material that accumulate in the pool water. The sand used in these filters is usually silica sand, as it is a porous material that has a large surface area for retaining impurities.

To use a swimming pool sand filter, sand is poured into the filter and the lid is closed. The filter is then connected to the pool water recirculation line and the pump is switched on, which recirculates the water through the filter. The sand retains impurities as the water passes through the filter, allowing clean water to return to the pool.

Pool sand filters have several advantages. Firstly, they are relatively inexpensive. Secondly, they are durable and require little maintenance, as the sand can be used for several years before it needs to be replaced. In addition, pool sand filters are efficient in removing impurities and can handle a large amount of water in a short period of time.

However, sand pool filters also have some disadvantages. The sand can become clogged over time, which can reduce the efficiency of the filter, which is why the sand must be cleaned regularly, and they are not the most effective filtration system for removing very small particles, such as dust or fine dirt, in which case cartridge filters are the best filtration system.
