The pool filter plays a critical role in keeping your swimming pool water looking and feeling its best, which is why you should include pool filter maintenance as part of your normal pool care routine. For starters, take note of the filter’s pressure gauge when it is new. As the filter removes debris in the water, the filter slowly gets clogged with debris and the PSI rises. When PSI rises by 25% over your starting pressure it’s time to remove the filter and either clean it or replace it with a new filter.
