Sand filters are the most commonly used and least expensive type of pool filters. Sand filters use sand as a filer media to clean the water. The sand is placed in a series of chambers inside the filter tank and water is passed through it. When water from the swimming pool passes through the sand, dirt, debris and other particles are trapped and prevented from passing on through the filter and only clean water is returned to the swimming pool. Since sand filters work by trapping dirt and debris in the sand bed it may result in a debris build-up which may require backwashing occasionally in order to maintain efficient operation. Sand pool filters can trap particles as small as 20 to 40 microns in size, and work for both in ground and above ground pools.
