How to Properly Treat Your Pool Filter in Toorak

As a pool owner, you know that the quality of the pool filter in your Toorak pool is essential to keep your water clean. Over time, the media in your filter will lose the ability to get rid of all the wastes in your pool. One thing you can do is to backwash a sand filter or clean your cartridge filter. This will remove most of the small debris. The problem is that backwashing or cleaning a cartridge will not get rid of things like body oils, cosmetics, sweat, and more. A cleaning agent is needed to do the trick.

At THE POOLSTORE, we have 34 years of experience in working with pool owners in the Bayside and Kingston areas. We provide a variety of pool products, supplies, and services. We can also help you clean the pool filter in your Toorak pool. If you have a sand or cartridge filter, you will use Focus Filter Cleaner and Degreaser to get the best results.

For a sand filter, make sure the pump is off. Take the lid off the pump and pour in a solution made of Focus Filter Cleaner and Degreaser and water. The filter should be switched to the backwash position and then the pump is turned on. Watch the top of the sand filter. When you see the glass turn white, shut down the pump and let it soak overnight. The next morning, turn the pump back on and wait for the glass to become clear. When it does, set the filter to rinse for 30 seconds and then continue the normal cycle.

To clean a cartridge filter, you will soak it in the same solution as used for the sand filter. Soak the filter overnight and then rinse it off the next morning. For more information on anything regarding your pool, call the boffins at THE POOLSTORE on 9583 1470.
