All swimming pools have a filtering system to keep the water clean and free of algae and bacteria. Without a pump your filtering system will not work and without a filter, your pool will get too dirty – quickly. Pool pumps come in various horse power depending on the size of the pool and how many gallons of water it must pull through the filtering system each hour. Pool filters require periodic cleaning maintenance to increase its efficiency.
EcoStar variable speed pump is the most efficient pump at any speed that can save you up 90% on energy costs over a single-speed pump. EcoStar matches pump flow to a pool’s needs, versus running at full power 100% of the time and is suitable for both new construction and the aftermarket.
TriStar Superior performance, energy efficiency and value are the qualities that you can depend with TriStar. Its advanced design delivers superior flow, energy efficiency and reduced maintenance creating a new benchmark in residential pool pumps.

*Savings based on variable speed pump compared to a single-speed pump running 12 hours per day at an average of $0.16 per kWh in a 20,000 gallon pool. Actual savings may vary based on local utility. rates, pool size, pump run time, pump horsepower, pump rpm, plumbing size and length, pump model, service factor and other hydraulic factors.

The Posi-Clear™ RP Cartridge Filter gives you everything you could ask for in a filter. It delivers top-of-the-line cartridge performance to keep pools sparkling clear, trapping particles as small as 20 microns (an average grain of sand is 1,000 microns). The new side entry design optimizes flow for nearly 50 percent greater efficiency than any other single cartridge filter on the market, earning it the Pentair® Eco Select® Brand for our most environmentally responsible equipment choices. Cleaning is a breeze – just open the top, remove the cartridge, and hose it off. And, its durable fiberglass tank ensures exceptionally long life. The Posi-Clear RP is the ultimate in convenience, and delivers refreshingly clear pool water.
The EasyClean™ features a chemical resistant tank with no-tool servicing and a coreless cartridge for easier cleaning. All models are equipped with easy spin-on-unions for plumbing hook-ups.
Cartridge filters have a greater surface area than sand allowing for fewer clogs and easier maintenance. They run at lower pressure than sand which puts less backpressure on the pump, providing more flow and turnover. Cartridge filters should be cleaned once or twice a season by simply hosing the cartridge element off. Cartridge element filters trap debris as small as 10 to 15 microns.
Diatomaceous earth (D.E.) is mined and is the fossilized exoskeletons of tiny diatoms. They are used to coat “grids” in the filter housing and act as tiny sieves allowing for the removal of debris as small as 5 microns. Once the pressure rises, the filter is backwashed just like a sand filter and then “recharged” with more D.E. powder. D.E. filters trap debris as small as 2 – 5 microns.
In this method, impurities are extracted from the water using sand to collect and attract the debris as small as 20 to 40 microns. Sand filters must be backwashed (running it in reverse) to unload the water waste.
