a word about filters

  • Sand filtration.
  • In this method, impurities are extracted from the water using sand to collect and attract the debris as small as 20 to 40 microns. Sand filters must be backwashed (running it in reverse) to unload the water waste.
  • Cartridge filters.
  • Cartridge filters have a greater surface area than sand allowing for fewer clogs and easier maintenance. They run at lower pressure than sand which puts less backpressure on the pump, providing more flow and turnover.
  • d.e. filters
  • Diatomaceous earth (D.E.) is mined and is the fossilized exoskeletons of tiny diatoms. They are used to coat "grids" in the filter housing and act as tiny sieves allowing for the removal of debris as small as 5 microns.

what people say

  • "This a good pump and filter, very happy with the purchase. so much easier to use as compared to a sand filter. Will never go back! .."

  • " So I bit the bullet and purchased the EC50 DE Filter and pump. I purchased this larger pump so in the future it would be large enough for any pool we purchased. I hooked it up in about 30 minutes, everything you need including hoses and clamps came with it. Our pool was green, very dirty, and clarity was about an inch deep! After running for 24 hours the water is sparkly clear and you can see straight to the bottom. .."

  • " I would recommend this to anyone. I have a 16 X 48 Intex above ground pool and the small cartridge filter they give you with the pool does nothing for keeping it clean. Since I have gotten this filter, my pool is always sparkling clean and chemical use is down by 50%. The cost of the cartridges for the old filter was about 15.00 a week so this is going to pay for itself in a matter of months. I would recommend this for anyone with a smaller above ground pool."
