Pool Pumps and Filters

Keeping your water clean and filtered is one of the most important things you’ll do for your pool. After all, you don’t want to dive into anything but crystal clear, refreshing water. Pool pumps and filters help you maintain the condition of your pool by removing dirt and debris.

Pool Pumps

Pool pumps provide the necessary force to circulate your pool water. This helps keep your pool from becoming murky, dirty, or—in extreme cases—green. An in-ground pool pump works by pulling the pool water through a filter, removing any dirt and debris, sanitizing the water, and then pushing the water back into the pool.

Determining what type of pool pump to purchase varies with the size of the pool and the number of features you desire. In order to maintain clear and clean pool water, it is important to purchase a pump that is equipped to circulate the volume of water your pool holds.

Pool Filters

Swimming pool filter systems are designed to keep your pool water clean and clear. They remove dirt, leaves and other debris from the water including bacteria and other microorganisms – all of which can be introduced to the pool water by swimmers or by wind and rain if your pool does not have a screen enclosure.

The type of filter you choose determines the way in which the debris is removed from the water. There are three main types of pool filter systems: diatomaceous earth (DE) pool filters, cartridge pool filters, and sand pool filters.
