Above Ground Pool Filter Systems
Just because you have an above ground pool doesn’t mean a filter isn’t going to be as necessary as it is with an in ground pool. At Discount Pool Supply we offer a number of above ground filters, each of varying horsepower and size, to ensure your pool is properly taken care of. Whether you choose a Clear Water or Waterway filter, you can be certain that your pool will be sparkling all summer long, and you might even find that these quality filters can help you conserve water too. We offer fast and free shipping across Canada .
Pool filter systems are still needed with above ground swimming pools and you’ll be able to find a variety of them at Discount Pool Supply. They come in various sizes and power to make sure there’s an ideal system for your pool. Two of the most popular manufacturers of above ground filters we carry are Waterway and Game . These popular, energy-efficient filters are designed to keep your swimming water as clean and refreshing as possible year in, year out.
When choosing a combination filter/pump system for an above ground pool you’ll need to make sure it’s big and strong enough for your pool. Pools that are as large as 24 feet in size typically use a one-horsepower pump and larger pools will use a 1.5-horsepower pump. At Discount Pool Supply we’ll be able to match your pool with the right size of pump to make sure you’re not paying more in energy costs than you need to. We’ll also make sure the filter is the right size for the pool and pump. There is a difference between an inground filter system and an above ground system as an above ground pump will typically be located on the ground near the pool, meaning it will sit below the water line.
Pumps for above ground pools also differ from inground models as they’re designed to force the water upwards. Canadian pool owners have the option of single speed and dual-speed pumps, which are considered to be quieter to operate and more eco-friendly. Single-speed models operate consistently at the same speed and dual-speed models enable the pump to run at two different speeds to save on energy costs. A lower speed is ideal for circulating pool water while the higher speed is designed for backwashing the filter and vacuuming the pool.
There are also several types of above ground filters such as sand, cartridge, and D.E. (diatomaceous earth) models. At Discount Pool Supply we’ll gladly explain the differences between them and explain how they work and need to be maintained. Below are a few samples of the makes and models we offer.
