The pump is essentially the heart of the swimming pool’s circulation system. Your pool’s circulation system involves the elements of your pool that take water from your pool, filters it, sanitizes it, and then returns the water back to the pool. If your pump is not running, then the water from your pool can not be properly circulated or filtered.
Pool water comes from the circulation pump then goes into the filter where small debris particles are removed through depth or surface filtration. From there, it goes on to the heater or back to the pool. A filter works through mechanical separation of water and debris through surface or depth filtration. Sand filters use a special filter sand, cartridge filters pass water through a fibrous element, and DE filters pass water through a thin layer of diatomaceous earth that is coated onto a grid. A gauge located on the filter or valve can be used to measure the back pressure or resistance in your filter system. When the pressure increases by 10 psi, your filter should be cleaned to reduce resistance and improve water flow. Cartridge filters require disassembly and cleaning of the cartridge periodically to remove debris from the filter.
Regardless of your typical climate, you will at some point want to experience the comfort of heating your pool.
