How often should my pool filter be cleaned?

Your pool filter should be cleaned when the maximum PSI level is reached for your pool filtration element. In other words: Depending on your filters condition and the amount of debris found in your swimming pool, your filter will most likely require a bi-weekly cleaning during Tampa's summer months. During Tampa’s winter months your pool filter can be cleaned less frequently, but debris still needs to be regularly maintained.

Is a salt system better than a regular chlorine pool service?

Each swimming pool system requires different levels of pool maintenance and associated costs. One advantage of a salt system is that it needs less maintenance than a traditional chlorine filtration system. The salt system generates salt into chlorine, meaning it is unnecessary to chlorinate your pool on a weekly basis. Unfortunately for your pool, salt is also a corrosive element. Your pool’s salt cell will usually deteriorate every 3-4 years, increasing the overall pool maintenance costs. Salt systems also generate softer water, but are less energy efficient than chlorine s systems… be the judge!
