What is the difference between the different filter types?

Sand Pool Filters

Sand Filters use specially graded sand to trap particles and debris. They are very easy to operate and maintain. The filter sand can last 5-10 years between changes giving you a very economical filtration system.

Cartridge Pool Filters

In a Cartridge Filter, pool water passes through a filter material which captures the dirt and debris. Cartridge Filters are a great choice for Above Ground Pools. They are low maintenance and economical. They are very simple to clean using a standard garden hose. Backwashing is not necessary with Cartridge Filters, eliminating water and chemical loss.

D.E. Pool Filters

D.E. Filters use a special powder called Diatomaceous Earth. This powder is used to coat the inside of the D.E. filter and trap very fine particles as small as 5 microns. D.E. Filters provide superior water clarity but require more maintenance than Sand or Cartridge Filters.
