We are going to build soon in Goldcoast area and I am looking for some advice regarding concrete pool setup
I have 2 quotes
- one of them is suggesting a Cartridge filtration (they say it is easy to clean - take it out and 2 3 minutes wash it, it seems to simple but probably is)
- the second quote suggested an in-ground filtration (something to do with sand filtration)
If you have experience with this sort of things I would appreciate some guidance.
If you have built and used someone reliable or had a good experience with a good supplier please share it here as it will help me and others reading this.

Cartridges are generally found on older pools. Sand filters are more common these days. As for cleaning the filter itself - a sand filter doesn’t need cleaning per say. Only a backwash every now and then. And replacing the media (sand) every 5-10 years depending on your pool (how dirty it gets).
I’ve had both over the years and for ease I don’t think you can compare the two. Sand filter would be my choice over and over again unless the technology in cartridges has changed.

Go speak with some pool shops and get their opinions. Not the pool builder. Pool shops service thousands of different types of pools a year. If anyone has a qualified opinion it’s them. Not the bloke trying to sell you a pool.
