Maintaining crystal-clear and healthy pool water is essential for an enjoyable swimming experience. To achieve this, selecting the right filter is crucial. With various types of filters available in the market, it can be challenging to determine which one best suits your needs. 

Let’s explore some different types of filters and evaluate their performance.

Clean and Clear Plus Cartridge Filters

At Mastercraft Pool & Spa, one of our highly recommended filter options is the Clean and Clear Plus Cartridge Filters. These filters are renowned for their exceptional filtration capabilities and ease of use. They are designed with a large surface area and high dirt-holding capacity, ensuring efficient removal of dirt, debris, and other contaminants from your pool water.

The Clean and Clear Plus Cartridge Filters offer several advantages. They provide excellent water clarity, as they can capture particles as small as 10 microns. These filters are low maintenance, requiring periodic cleaning by simply rinsing off the cartridge with a hose. Additionally, they promote energy efficiency by reducing the pressure required for water flow, which can result in lower operating costs.

Triton Sand Filters

Another recommended option from Mastercraft is the Triton Sand Filter. These filters utilize a bed of specially graded sand to remove impurities from the pool water. Triton sand filters offer reliability and longevity, making them a popular choice among pool owners.

Triton sand filters excel in removing larger particles from the water, typically between 20 and 40 microns in size. They feature a simple yet effective backwashing system that cleans the sand bed and maintains optimal filtration performance. Regular backwashing helps ensure the filter operates at its best and extends its lifespan.

Diatomaceous Earth (DE) Filters

While a Clean and Clear Plus Cartridge Filter and Triton Sand Filter are the primary recommendations from Mastercraft, it’s important to touch on diatomaceous earth (DE) filters. DE filters use a fine powder made from fossilized diatoms to trap impurities. They offer superior filtration and can capture particles as small as 2-5 microns, making them highly effective in maintaining pristine water quality.

DE filters require more maintenance compared to cartridge and sand filters. The DE powder needs to be added periodically, and the filter grids require cleaning. While DE filters provide exceptional water clarity, their intricate design and maintenance requirements make them less popular among pool owners seeking a balance between performance and convenience.
