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. Cartridge filters should be cleaned once or twice a season by simply hosing the cartridge element off. Cartridge element filters trap debris as small as 10 to 15 microns.

 

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. Once the pressure rises, the filter is backwashed just like a sand filter and then "recharged" with more D.E. powder. D.E. filters trap debris as small as 2 - 5 microns.

 

Sand Filters

 

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.

Reliant Sand Filter
Sand Filters are manufactured with high grade fiberglass and resins utilizing the latest engineering techniques ensuring high quality and superior strength for long life and durability. Sand Filters feature improved water circulation through a balanced layout of internal lateral nozzles positioned internally at the base of the filter tank. This enables water to be distributed evenly throughout the entire filter bed trapping debris and contaminants before pure fresh water returns via the multiport valve to the pool. Just as sand is utilized to cleanse our oceans and rivers you too can enjoy the benefits of a sand filtered swimming pool.
