Seasonal pool filter cleaning is the key to keeping your swimming pool filtration system operating at its best. Whether you keep your pool open year round, as most of us Texans do, or you close it down like those cold-weather states up north, seasonal pool filter cleaning has many benefits. These include a clean, healthy water environment, reduced stress on your pool equipment, increased energy efficiency, and an extended life of your pool pump and filtration system.
What is a Seasonal Pool Filter Cleaning?
For most ‘occasional use’ pool owners, seasonal pool filter cleaning is a deep cleaning of your pool filters at the start and end of the swimming season. In Houston that’s typically once in April-May and again in October-November. If your pool, however, is especially high traffic, you may need to consider cleaning your swimming pool filtration system every month in high season. Or, if you swim year around (keep posted for an upcoming post on ‘the year round pool’), you may want a quarterly cleaning. If you are a Manning Pool Service customer, your regular pool technician will have the data and numbers from your system to help determine how often is best for you. (For example, a measurable increase in the pressure of your pool filtration system means that there is a reduced flow due to a build up of debris, dirt, calcium, and oils.)
Why Clean Your Swimming Pool Filtration System?
We all want our pool water to be clear and clean. Whether or not your pool water is crystal clear actually seems to have a direct influence on how satisfied pool owners are with their pools. Given the choice between a crystal clear pool and even a slightly cloudy or dirty one, experience tells us that you’ll choose the clean one. Not only do we enjoy the experience of a clean pool more, but we’re less likely to have anxious thoughts about chemicals, germs, and even our own health. Now, we all sort of know this by common sense (ever been to a hotel with a pool you refused to swim in?) but there is some science at work here, too.
Filters are an essential component to maintaining a healthy, sanitary pool. They are designed to remove unwanted dirt, debris, calcium, and oils. Unfortunately, filters aren’t yet able to clean themselves. This means that someone needs to physically remove and clean the media inside your filter system. And unless you’re extremely handy with at home DIY, electricity, plumbing, cleaning, and pool filtration systems, you’ll want to call an expert. They will be able to provide you with seasonal pool filter cleaning, both quickly and efficiently.
