pool water filtration systems
  • Confidence in cleanliness and meet the standards that the swimming pool should be such as checking the quality of water that it is clean and safe
  • Equipment of water filtration systems, such as water filter tanks, water filters, in this section must be looked at in the long term because installing a good filtration system will allow it to be used for a longer time and must be able to adjust easily
  • The value of the benefits/prices. This is the reason why many swimming pools choose a filter system that is not of sufficient quality, because it is very inexpensive compared to expensive systems but do you really know that each filter replacement or maintenance is costly? Costing when comparatively to picking the good quality one in the first place.

The water filtration system of the swimming pool is considered to be the 1st or 2nd most important part of the whole pool. Since pools generally use a circulating system within the pool, this means that the water used to swim will keep circulating until each water change cycle is reached. (Most pool cleaning water changes are only done 5 to 10 times a year.) If the pool’s water filtration system is not good or not working at full efficiency, this will make the water in the pool unclean and can affect the user.

There are 3 types of pool water filtration systems that are commonly used

pool water filtration systems, Sand filter system

1. Sand filter system

It is the most common system as it is simple and economical and is suitable for small pools. There is a multiport valve to control the operation. The filter tank is a vertical cylinder or a fat cylinder made of steel, fiberglass and stainless steel, etc. Inside is filled with layered sand gravel. Can filter turbidity and suspended solids in the water and have to be backwashed (Backwash) if feel that the filtration is not of good quality – set a certain backwashing period by allowing the water to counteract the filtration to bring the impurities left on the surface of the filter after that it will work again.

But nowadays there is a filter that is used to replace sand filter media called AFM® (Activated Filter Media). It is a water filter made of glass, developed specifically to replace sand. The advantage is long service life. Normal sand must be replaced every 1 year, but AFM® can be used for up to 15 years and with the special properties of the filter and it is 40 times better than sand.

2. Filter cloth with filter powder (E. Filter)

has a fineness in filtering water better than sand filter systems, but there is a disadvantage that must change the filter cloth and add filter powder with sieve. Using this system, in addition to the filtration system, may also require other treatment methods, such as the addition of various water modifiers.

3. Paper filter system (Cartridge Filter)

Filter paper that we called, it is not paper as the name suggested but a synthetic material that is made to look liked paper. This system will have a better water filtration resolution than a cloth filter system, but there are disadvantages. The paper filter needs to be replaced rather often than the filter cloth, but it has the advantage of finely filter and dust does not enter into the filtration system.

It can be seen that there are many different systems that can be used in swimming pools. It depends on what kind of system we want that is right for us and can be maintained easily and regularly to keep the filter effective for a longer time.
