If you wanted to have a peace of mind with a crystal clear and clean pool water to swim in, pool filter and media is the key.
Sand filters are made up of a huge tank, it has a thick bed of special sand. It’s either made of concrete, metal or fiber glass that normally has a squarish shape. Dirty water from the pool comes in through the filter’s inlet pipe and this is done during filtering operation. The pool sand filter is a high-quality filter system. Unlike other filter systems, this type of filter catches both the large and small dirt particles. The large particles include debris such as hair, insects and leaves. Most filters catch this larger debris quite well.
Media filter is a type of filter that uses a bed of sand, peat, shredded tires, foam, crushed glass, Geo-textile fabric, anthracite, crushed granite or other material to filter water for drinking, swimming pools, aquaculture, irrigation, storm-water management, oil & gas operations, and other applications. Media filters are used to protect water quality in streams, rivers, and lakes. They can be effective at removing pollutants in storm-water such as suspended solids and phosphorus. Sand is the most common filter material.
One of the main advantages of glass media in swimming pool filters is its potential to save water. This is important from a sustainability perspective, energy savings and also water costs in commercial properties where water is charged, depends on usage. As the glass media is more efficient, it needs less back washing.
If your going to check out the filters at the stores, some may say that it may last up to 3 months or you may change filters every after 90 days. But looking thoroughly, you’ll see that some filters are designed to last a single month, while other manufacturers have produced and engineered media air cleaners with filters that you may use longer and meant to be changed every 6-12 months
