Swimming Pool Pump | Accessories
What does it do?
The purpose of a swimming pool filter is to remove suspended solids from the water. This function coupled with the correct chemical treatment of the water should give you a sparkling clear and safe pool environment in which to swim. It is however important that the pool owner understands fully, that even the most efficient filter will not achieve ideal pool water conditions if the chemical balance of the water is incorrect.
Basically, the pump draws water from the swimming pool and passes it via a special mulitport valve, into the top of the filter tank, from where it passes downwards through a bed of special media, which traps the dirt and solids. The filtered water is then returned to the pool via the mulitport valve. It is after this point that if a heating system is incorporated it will be connected into the return pipeline to the pool.
