Save the Old Pool Filter Cartridge

Posted by Debbie S on

I wrote an article recently on phosphates in the pool water, explaining what phosphates were and how they can affect your swimming pool water.  You may read the article here: Yikes! It's Raining Again... When treating phosphates you can use Phos Free or some similar product to remove the phosphates.  However, this product does tend to create a build up on your pool filter cartridge.  It was time for me to replace my old cartridge a few weeks ago.  So after I installed the new cartridge in the filter I saved the old cartridge.  I cleaned it very well, then I let it dry in the sun.  After it was completely dry I brushed it with a nylon brush to remove any loose, dried particles.  I am storing the pool filter cartridge in my garage and when my phosphate level get high again (we have a lot of trees around) I will place to old cartridge in my filter during the week I treat my pool with PhosFree.  After a week, I will remove the old cartridge, clean it and reinstall my newer cartridge...just a suggestion.

Happy & Safe Swimming~
