How Pool Equipment Works Together


No matter which you are, a new pool owner or a pool connoisseur who looking for refresher content, even you are a great manager for swimming pool. As we all know, every swimming pool need a pool filtration system, but how does it work? This is the most important thing.


In fact, all basic swimming pool systems are the same. During normal operation, water is pumped from the pool using suction generated by the pool pump. Water is drawn into the pump from the main drain and the skimmer. The pool pump generates pressure, circulating water through a pool filter, heater, chlorinator or other equipment and then returning to the pool.
