Your pool filter is the primary item that differentiates your pool from a swamp. We, as well as all major equipment manufacturers, recommend servicing D.E. and cartridge filters every six months. We offer filter service which includes a complete break down of the filter elements, a full cleaning, inspection, reassembly, and charging of the filter for D.E. systems. If any repairs are needed, our trained technicians will be happy to explain the issue before sending a bid.
We also offer a variety of options for filtration systems should your filter need replacing. We can evaluate your current set up, and make recommendations for the perfect pairing with your existing equipment.
Filter Service, Repair or Installation
Is your pool starting to look green? Have you noticed some leaks around the filter? Is there debris returning into the pool? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you might need someone to look at your pool’s filter. The good thing about pool filters is they are fairly simple when you compare them to other pieces of pool equipment. Even though they are simple, pool filters are essential in keeping your pool’s water clean. Instead of trying to tackle your pool filter repair yourself, you should contact a professional who can take care of the hassle for you.
Not only will O’Neill’s Pools clean your pool filter, we will inspect the filter’s grids/cartridges, and check all o-rings and manifolds. Even a small tear in one of your filters grids or cartridges can significantly reduce the ability to filter the water properly. If you are planning on replacing your pool filter, there are different manufacturers, sizes and types from which to choose. We can assist you in properly sizing the pool filter based on the water capacity of your pool, and the existing pool equipment.
A sand filter tank is made of fiberglass and contains a thick bed of special-grade sand. While filtering, dirty water from the pool comes in through the filter’s inlet pipe, which leads to the water distribution head inside the tank. While gravity pulls the water down through the sand, tiny sand particles catch dirt and debris. At the bottom of the tank, the filtered water flows through the pick-up unit and out the outlet pipe.
If the water flow is slowed by dirt and debris, pressure gauges at the filter inlet and outlet give the pool owner an idea of the blockage level inside. If the inlet pipe has more pressure than the outlet pipe, there is collected debris in the sand. You will then need to backwash the filter.
The coarseness of sand traps debris particles and over time, the sand will become smooth and round. This sand should be changed every five years. Contact us to change the sand or you can choose to do it yourself.
