Pool Cartridge Filters

Cartridge filters are an easy option for new pools or DIY jobs as they do not require a backwash line to be plumbed into a sewer. Initial costs of a cartridge filter are usually Read more $250 to $600, making it a cheaper option, but they do require far more maintenance. Cartridge filters are known to clog quite easily, especially with heavy debris and pool chemicals, while media filters have a much larger capacity and have little to no issues with clogging when using pool chemicals.

Cartridge filters require the element to be replaced every 12 to 24 months, depending on maintenance and chemicals used. Spare parts on cartridge filters also include: filter tank lids, complete tank housings, lid O rings, filter unions and a pressure gauge.
