Filter Cleaning

Is your pool water looking cloudy? Is it exhibiting high pressure readings and reduced water flow? These are classic signs that your pool filter isn’t performing at its best. If your pool is showing these signs, it’s time to have your pool filter cleaned. At Southern Star Pool Repair and Cleaning, we provide filter cleaning to our clients in Dallas, Fort Worth, and the entire DFW area.

Pool filters must be completely disassembled and cleaned every 3 to 6 months to keep them in optimal condition. This is an essential part of keeping your pool clean, keeping the chemicals in proper balance, and maintaining the effective performance of your pool equipment. It also increases the life expectancy of your equipment.

If you just purchased a home with a pool, you probably have no idea when the filter was last cleaned. When you sign up for our regular maintenance service, we dismantle and clean your filter immediately at no charge to you! That way, we can all know for sure you and your pool are getting a fresh start.

Our Filter Cleaning Service

New customers who pay for regular maintenance receive one immediate filter cleaning absolutely free. We reward our regular customers with discounted rates on repairs and other services. Filter cleaning costs $90 for our regular customers and $150 for everyone else.

Pool manufacturers require regular filter cleanings or else they might void your warranty. We service diatomaceous earth filters, cartridge filters, and more. Southern Star never requires you to sign a contract to start receiving regular service. Just tell us which plan you’d like, and we’ll get started!

The Benefits of Clean Pool Filters 

Having your pool filters cleaned creates a more hygienic environment for you and your family to swim in. Imagine how much dirt and gunk gets trapped in your filter after 6 months. Sometimes dirty filters contain 10 – 20 pounds of debris! This kind of build-up blocks the filter and decreases the flow of water passing through.

 Algae loves to grow in still water. Clearing up your filters will increase water flow and make it more difficult for algae to take hold. It will also prolong the life of your filter and its pump motor, allowing the system to pump water more efficiently. 

Finally, pool filter cleaning makes financial sense. You can avoid repairs and replacement for a long time just by keeping your filter clean and maintained. Dirty pool filters have to work overtime to keep your water clean, so they draw more energy than clean filters. You could see savings on your energy bill by having your filter cleaned on a regular basis.

Our Cleaning Process 

Our cleaning crew gets to work as soon as they arrive. We pride ourselves on our strong work ethic and the value we place on customer satisfaction. We never take our customers for granted.

Our technicians check every component carefully and give the filter a thorough cleaning inside and out. Then they reassemble the filter and test it to make sure it’s working effectively. It’s important to have this service done every 3 to 6 months, or you might risk voiding the manufacturer’s warranty on your pool. Filters should typically be replaced after two years, though this varies depending on how frequently you use your pool.
