Filters: High-efficiency filtration systems for sparkling clear water
Every pool needs a filter. By removing impurities such as dirt, leaves, grass, hair, body oils, sunscreen, and even many bacteria from the water, today’s high efficiency filters keep your pool water clean, clear and inviting. Choose from three different filter technologies—cartridge, D.E. or sand. For more information and further technical detail, visit Pentair.
Sand: Simple, effective, low-maintenance filters
Sand filters are one of the most popular ways to filter water. For good reason. They are simple, effective, and require very little attention. Pool water is routed through a sand-filled pressure vessel. Over time, dirt accumulates in the spaces between the sand particles causing the pressure in the vessel to rise as water finds it harder to pass through. This signals you to backwash the filter. Simply reverse the water flow and knock out the dirt.

Cartridge: Top end filter performance with the lowest maintenance
Cartridge filters’ proven design uses special filter elements to strip particles from pool water with great effectiveness. Maintenance? Open the top. Remove the cartridge. Hose it off. What could be simpler?
These filters have a corrosion resistant injection molded filter tank featuring superior strength and reliability. The cartridge assembly uses four easy to clean, non-woven, polyester cartridges. Each filter is supplied with a bulkhead union set for easy installation.

D.E.: Filters that make water really sparkle
Diatomaceous earth, or D.E. for short, is a natural substance that traps dirt and debris as small as five microns (1/10 the width of a human hair). That means body oils, suntan lotions, pollens, dust and even some bacteria are caught in a D.E. filter, leaving behind sparkling clear, healthier water. We’ve maximized the filtration area, which means longer periods between cleanings. And we’ve designed our D.E. filters to require the least amount of pumping power to achieve a needed flow rate, lowering your utility costs.
