Your pool’s filtration system has many parts. With proper pool maintenance service, these parts are less likely to breakdown and will last longer. Here are some of the terms you should know when it comes to your pool’s filtration system.
Multiple skimmer drains are located around the top of the pool. Skimmers draw water the same way as the main drains, but they suck only from the very top of the pool.
These ports attach to pool vacuum cleaners, which work something like ordinary vacuum cleaners except that they suck water instead of air.
Water flows to the filtering system through two or more main drains at the bottom of the pool usually located on the lowest point in the pool.
PUMP & MOTOR
The water pump circulates the water. Your motor is known as the dry end of the filter pump. It drives the impeller, which moves the water from the various drains through the filter and back out to the water inlets.
A device used to remove particles suspended in the water by pumping water through a porous substance or material.
A pool heater works by burning fuel to create heat, which is then passed through a heat exchanger and onto water pulled from your swimming pool. The water is then reintroduced to the pool, raising the overall temperature.
