The small sponge filters found on the front of some pumps are only designed to stop particles damaging the moving parts (impellor) of the pump. They are not designed to clean water. If you have one of these filters and have to clean it more than you’d like, you should consider an AQUAPRO Prefilter Sponge or possibly even an AP5000 UV Pressure Filter which will dramatically reduce your maintenance.
