Weekly Pool Services in Middletown, NY

Sand Filter Change Service

At Pool It, we’re experts in ensuring your swimming pool remains a clear, inviting haven all summer long. A crucial aspect of maintaining this clarity is the proper upkeep of your pool’s sand filter. Over time, the sand in your filter loses its effectiveness due to wear and tear, necessitating a change every three to five years. Recognizing the complexities involved in changing the pool sand, Pool It offers professional sand filter change services to keep your pool water pristine and healthy.

When to Change Your Pool Sand

While regular maintenance can prolong the life of your sand filter, certain indicators suggest a need for sand replacement:

  • Your pool water remains cloudy or unclean despite routine maintenance.
  • The frequency of required backwashes increases, signaling reduced filter efficiency.
  • You haven’t changed the sand in over three to five years, aligning with the recommended maintenance schedule.

The Importance of Changing Your Pool Sand

The sand in your pool filter plays a vital role in capturing contaminants and keeping your water clean. However, after years of filtration, the sand’s sharp edges become smooth, diminishing its ability to trap debris. Additionally, sand can clump or form channels, allowing water to bypass the filtration process altogether. These signs indicate it’s time for a sand change to maintain optimal filter performance and water quality.
