You turn on the faucet, fill your glass with water, lift it up to the light and see that clear liquid you were about to guzzle down is a cloudy mess. You can probably thank the water plant's filtration system. The best way to make it clear again is with a water purifier. A swimming pool filter does the same thing for your pool.
A swimming pool filter moves matter (like flakes of skin, calcium, or other debris) so water remains crystal clear. If you want to know if your filter is not working simply look at the pool water. If it's cloudy, you know the first place to look.
