Maintaining your pool cartridge filters is essential for keeping your pool water clean and clear. In this step-by-step guide, Pool Supply Haus will walk you through the process of changing the filters in your pool cartridge filter system, ensuring optimal water quality all season long.

  • Turn Off the Pool Pump: Before starting, turn off your pool pump to prevent any potential damage to the equipment during the filter replacement process.
  • Release the Air Pressure: Open the air relief valve, usually located on top of the filter housing, to release any built-up pressure within the cartridge filter system.
  • Remove the Filter Housing Lid: Depending on your filter model, you may need to remove clamps, bolts, or a locking ring to access the cartridge filters. Consult your owner's manual for specific instructions on removing the filter housing lid.
  • Remove the Old Cartridge Filters: Carefully lift the old cartridge filters out of the filter housing. Keep a note of their orientation, as this will help when installing the new filters.
  • Inspect and Clean the Filter Housing: Before installing the new filters, take the time to inspect and clean the filter housing. Remove any debris and rinse the housing thoroughly with a garden hose.
  • Install the New Cartridge Filters: Place the new cartridge filters into the filter housing, ensuring they are correctly oriented and seated properly. Make sure the filters are securely in place before reassembling the filter housing.
  • Replace the Filter Housing Lid: Reattach the filter housing lid, following the specific instructions for your filter model as outlined in the owner's manual. Ensure all clamps, bolts, or locking rings are securely fastened.
  • Turn On the Pool Pump and Check for Leaks: Switch the pool pump back on and observe the filter housing for any leaks. If you notice any issues, turn off the pump and recheck the filter housing assembly before turning the pump back on.
