How to Know Your Pool Filter Needs Fixing

Today, we’ll be going over signs that your pool filter needs to be fixed.

Anyone who has a swimming pool at home will also have a pool filter to go with it. The filter is an essential component of your pool, as it helps to purify the water so that it’s clean and safe to have in your swimming pool. The filter has to do a lot of work for your pool, and as such, there will come a time when it starts to struggle. Today, we’ll be going over signs that your pool filter needs to be fixed.

Your Pool Filter Has a Leak

Some pool filters can experience leaking. Normally, a filter is made of two halves, and there’s a clamp band that helps to bind those two halves together. If the clamp doesn’t perform this task, the two halves will separate, which causes a pool filter leak.

Problems With Pressure

Whenever your filter is running, the pressure gauge should be reading normal levels. The valve on the gauge should not be giving a reading of zero. In contrast, when the pressure is much higher than it normally is, that means your filter has gotten dirty, and it needs to be cleaned.

You Hear Loud Noises

Has your filter been making loud sounds lately? If so, it could be due to your motor malfunctioning. If this is the case, it’s best to bring in professional help to deal with the situation.

Your Pool Filter Doesn’t Clear Debris

This is an issue that could either be with the pool filter or drainage. Regardless of which issue it is, you’ll want to get it inspected as quickly as possible.
