The pool filter is a vital piece of equipment for keeping your pool clean and hygienic for swimming but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you want to see it all the time. Luckily, there are some solutions available as far as pool filter storage goes, and we outline them here. For more ideas on pool filter storage, ask your local pool builder
Pool Filter Covers
One great idea for storing your pool filter is to employ the use of a pool filter cover. This is a cover that is designed to be placed over the pool filter itself, like a mini shed, almost. The pool filter cover has one side with a mesh panel so that the pool filter gets the ventilation that it needs to keep working properly. The other two sides are solid panels. You also have one side that has a hinged door which is fully lockable, and they also come with a hinged roof. This means that you can get full access to the pool filter for repairs or maintenance as required. The most common colour for this style of pool filter storage is cream, which will go with most landscapes. However, you may also get it in a green colour. Pool filter covers are easy to install and many come in kit form for you to assemble yourself.
Pool Filter Storage Boxes
Another option for pool filter storage is to use a pool filter storage box. These are generally made of timber for style and functionality. The frames are made from quality treated timber and the sides or walls themselves are made from Western red cedar or marine grade plywood, depending on your budget and preferences. While their primary purpose is to house the pool filter and reduce the sound that they produce, they come in different sizes so that you can also choose to have room to store other essential pool equipment near them such as pool chemicals, cleaning equipment and so on. Pool filter storage boxes have hinged doors and also an openable roof that is mounted on gas roof struts so that you can easily access the filter itself as well as any other contents inside the box.
