Swimming pool filters

At Swimhome we have an outstanding variety of pool filter models. In addition to having models of the most recognised brands in the sector, we offer equipment of different types.

One of the most important components for the purifying function of the pool is the filter. It is responsible for keeping the water in constant movement, allowing it to be purified

Thanks to this function it helps to combat dirt, limiting not only the green colouring of the water, but also the bad smell. Do you want your pool to maintain a healthy appearance? In that case the purification system must be powerful

how does the pool filter work?

There are various types of pool filters, and depending on the type there are some criteria for their functions that may vary. However, there are some basic principles that remain the same regardless of the model.

Basically, the filter has the capacity to suck the water from the pool thanks to the skimmer, it directs the water by the effect of the pump. Subsequently, the water reaches a tank that applies a special filtering treatment.

Finally, the water is returned to the pool. So the function of the filter allows the fulfilment of a cycle which in turn helps to maintain a constant sanitation

does this mean that the filter must be running at all times? No. It often works in cycles, not in a sustained manner. For public pool maintenance, ideally a complete cycle should be scheduled every day.

Neglecting the pool's purifying function is a major mistake. In fact, this could increase the cost of maintaining the water in a healthy condition

It is much more economical to maintain the cleaning or treatment of the water, rather than having to do a thorough pool cleaning due to its condition. So installing a good filter in your pool will help you to reduce your costs
