Filter Cartridges & What They Do

A cartridge filter uses a barrier or sift method to remove sediments and other harmful solids from water. The barrier that the filter uses is the filter cartridge.

When the filter cartridge, or cartridge element, is clean, it traps large particles. As the pores become clogged with large debris, it traps finer particles as well.

Once the filter cartridge becomes to dirty, it can be removed and cleaned by pressure washing it inside and out with a hose. If it has any holes though, it needs to be replaced or it will be useless.

At PoguePoolSpa we carry generic cartridges by Unicel which means you can save money without compromising quality. Head over to our Filter Cartridge Section to replace yours today.
