Your swimming pool filter system is essential to removing dirt and debris from your swimming pool. Anything that might be floating in your (e.g. leaves, flowers, or insects) will be caught by your swimming pool filter system as it moves through pool equipment. Think of your swimming pool filter system as your pool’s kidney.
Every Penguin Pools swimming pool package comes with a sand pool filter system included, sized to meet the needs of your swimming pool.
Sand Filters and Cartridge Filters
There are two main types of pool filters being used in our market.
- Sand Filters
- Cartridge Filters
Don’t Undersize Your Pool Filter
By under-sizing your pool filter you can run the risk of burning out your pool pump, as well as using more electricity on a daily basis. Penguin Pools will help you get the right size pool filter and filer system to make sure your pool stays clean and efficient.
Bigger Filters = More Gallons per Minute
More Gallons per Minute = Slower Pump Speed
Slower Pump Speed = Less Electricity Used
As water moves through the filter, dirt accumulates in the spaces between the sand particles, causing the pressure in the vessel to rise as water finds it harder to pass through. This signals you to clean or “backwash” the filter. Simply reverse the water flow and “knock out” the dirt. What could be simpler?
Since Penguin Pools sizes the filters correctly, you will only have to clean out your filter once every 4 – 6 weeks. For increased performance, you can also use a different type of media in the tank like, glass media.
With ClearPro Technology, your pool filter creates a final barrier to the small particles sand cannot stop, including the finest dust particles, algae, and pollens. The result is dazzling water clarity.

Cartridge filters use a paper filter to catch items as water passes through it. When the cartridge gets clogged up you have to take it out and rinse it to get all the debris out. Cartridge filters generally last 1-2 pool seasons and then they need to get replaced.
While cartridge filters aren’t typically used by Penguin Pools, they do have their uses. Certain fountains require cartridge filters as they create less turbulence. Clean & Clear® Plus Filters have a corrosion-resistant, injection molded filter tank for superior strength and reliability. The cartridge assembly uses four easy to clean, non-woven, polyester cartridges. Each filter is supplied with a bulkhead union set for easy installation.
