Filtration is an integral part of all swimming pools. It is essential for maintaining clean and clear water. It represents 70% of the effectiveness of a swimming pool treatment.
Filtration refers to all the elements intended to physically stop impurities in the pool water. The organization and size of the filter, pump and hydraulic network are essential elements to master in order for them to fulfill their missions. Do not overlook this essential installation and let our professionals study your equipment.
The sand filter
The sand filter is shaped like a canister. It contains special “sand” of different particle sizes through which the water will flow as slowly as possible, thereby cleaning it from pollutants.
The water is sucked in by the suction inlets of the pool, it circulates through the filter sand, passes through the strainers, then is redirected towards the pool via the discharge outlet.
The filter medium can be sand, which must be changed approximately every 5 years, or an active filter medium, such as AFM, made from specially treated glass to improve filtration performance and prevent the development of bacteria inside the filter. The AFM has a lifespan up to 3 times longer than that of the filter. As part of our eco-responsible approach, we recommend the AFM to orient swimming pools in an ecological and low-consumption aspect. Indeed, AFM is formulated using activated recycled glass.
The cartridge filter has the shape of a cylinder in which there is an unmixed polypropylene filter. Its star bending stops impurities in the water flowing through them. The fineness of filtering can be more or less important depending on the cartridge.
The filtration pump
The pump is essential for the quality of swimming. It works several hours a day to ensure the mixing of your pool water and its filtration. Our business expertise prompts us to recommend the installation of the latest generation, variable speed pump. For our customers, this is the assurance of a reliable, viable and environmentally responsible investment.
There is a very wide range of swimming pool pumps, with different powers, different performances and different technologies.
Conventional pumps operate at linear speed, which means that whatever the cleanliness of your water, or the frequentation of your pool, the energy expenditure will be the same, with a constant high noise level.
Variable speed pumps can operate on a wide range of speeds, in order to be able to adapt to the precise needs of your pool (depending on the season, whether or not the pool is used, etc.). They are one of the major elements of a “low-consumption swimming pool” design and of an eco-responsible commitment. Their noise level is significantly lower than a conventional pump and their filtration quality is better.
