Cartridge filters have a smaller footprint and can usually catch particles up to 5 microns, with the cartridges lasting between 1-2 years depending how well the pool is maintained, using less water to clean the filter and tend to be a good choice for rural properies.

It is essential to monitor your filter’s health, as poor maintenance can lead to clogged filters, increased pressure, poor circulation and poor sanitising, which can increase the risk of water borne infections such as Crypto, E. Coli, and Giardia.

Maintenance is easy – all you have to do is remove the pool filter cartridge from the housing system and give it a wash spraying with your hose pipe, checking the pleats each time you clean, attachments are available enquire with Pukka Pools for more info.


A sand filter is the more common filtration system you can use for your pool, whether it is in or above ground.

Pool filter glass from Pukka Pools is specially designed, that a negative charge is applied during the manufacturing process attracting organic molecules improving the clarity of your pool water over sand.

It operates by replacing dirty water with clean water – removing any dirt and debris running through your filter, .then, the clean water flows back into your pool.

Sand/Media filters have a backwash and rinse cycle usually using more water to clean the filter than cartridge filters but can catch particles up to 3 microns, depending on the media used, if well maintained you will have a life expectancy of 5 – 10years of your media.


Choosing the best filter for your pool will depend on what kind of pool you have, the layout of your backyard and your home septic system.
