What is a filter?

Filter Out The Bad

Want to learn about inground swimming pools? Unfortunately, creating an inground swimming pool or inground lap pool isn't as simple as digging a hole and diving in. Once you decide what type of pool surface you want (concrete, fiberglass, etc.) you'll also need a filter. This device will make sure the water you're swimming in is free from dirt and any microscopic disease-carrying animals.
Types of filters differ on how the water is filtered. Two types are:

• Sand Filters - that use high grade sand to clean the water
• Cartridge Filters – that use cloth to cleanse the H2O

Whatever kind of filter you go with, make sure it's a quality filter to avoid the constant maintenance cost (not to mention a constantly dirty pool).
