As your pool water circulates, it runs through the pool filter, which removes all the dirt, grime, and bacteria from the water. And your pool filter can get very dirty while performing its job.When the filter gets too dirty, water passing through it picks up some of that dirt and grime,carrying it right back into your pool, or worse the pressure that builds could result in equipment failure, or exploding filter. 

This does more than make the water unsanitary. It also affects the filter’s efficiency, wearing out your pool equipment more quickly and leading to costly repairs. Cleaning your pool filter regularly is a must to guard against these issues.  


  • Cartridge pool filters normally need cleaning 3 times per year, possibly more if you get heavy dirt or debris in your pool.
  • DE pool filters: Backwash whenever the pressure gauge rises above its “normal” level. You should also inspect DE filter grids and clean them twice a year.
  • Sand pool filters backwash as needed, replacing the sand every three to five years.

Deckhand Pool Care checks your filters every time one of our techs services your pool. If you don’t remember the last time you cleaned your pool filters, contact the team at Deckhand Pool Care to conduct an inspection.
