Swimming Pool Filter Cartridge Replacement for Vita Spas 50 sq ft skim filter, - PTL 50XW.

Pool filter cartridges are used to filter swimming pool water by collecting dirt, debris, algae, oils and other contaminants and filtering them out of the pool water. Cartridge filters have a much larger filtering area due to their design and construction. The pleats on a cartridge allow the filter to run at a lower pressure. As a result, the back pressure on your pool and spa pump is reduced thereby increasing the lifespan of your equipment. A pleated cartridge can trap debris as small as 10 to 15 microns (not visible to the un-aided human eye).

Cartridge filtration has been increasingly popular due to lower maintenance in comparison to old style Sand and most D.E. pool filters. There is no need to "Backwash" a cartridge filter, losing water and chemicals. There is no diatomaceous earth (D.E. - white powder substance) to deal with and the cleaning of the filter cartridge is much simpler.
