Cleaning your filter is a very important step towards maintaining optimal efficiency and pool clarity. For above ground pool owners, we recommend replacing your sand in the spring, followed by a mid-season cleaning. If you are not going to replace your sand, the filter should be chemically cleaned mid-season and before your pool is closed for the winter so that the deposits won’t harden in your filter over the winter.
For our inground pool customers, we recommend a complete sand change at least every 3-5 years and a mid-season and fall chemical cleaning in between.
Although these instructions are written for Baquacil pools, we have found their filter cleaners so effective that we also recommend them for our chlorine pools. The filter cleaners are completely compatible so no need to worry.
