Poor Water Flow in Swimming Pool Might be a Dirty Filter

dirty pool filter

We often get calls from people saying it doesn’t look like the water in their pool is “alive” anymore. They tell me about how they used to be able to see the water rippling on the surface, or how their waterfall used to flow out a few inches from the wall, but now it’s just a trickle. I can always hear a bit of fear in their voices as they explain, expecting a huge repair job, but almost every time, it’s just a dirty filter.

If you’ve noticed the flow in your pool has all but stopped, try hosing down or backwashing your filter. With a clean filter, you should see immediate results, and the overall clarity of your swimming pool water will improve too!
