Yes. The filter media degrades over time and
typically should be replaced every 3- 5 years.
Upgrading from a fixed speed pump to Pooled Energy's variable speed pump drive typically significantly increases the media life as the flow rate is better matched to the filter’s requirements.
We will inspect the filter media at the time of installation and if it requires replacement, we will generally recommend that we replace it for you using new technology crushed glass media. This is more durable and provides better filtration than sand.
The best time to do a media change is at the time of system installation. There is a charge for this, but some cost savings will also result as filtration times can be shorter.
Please call us if you think the filter media needs changing
