POOL PUMPS AND FILTERS

Have you ever wondered what the importance of pool pumps, motors and filters are? Here’s a brief explanation:

Filters

Swimming pools and spas are subject to constant contamination from foreign matter brought in by swimmers, wind and articles used in and around the pool. Filtration is the mechanical process of removing this insoluble matter from swimming pool and spa water. As water pumps through the circulation system of a pool or spa, the filter strains all impurities, improving the overall clarity of the water.
