Filtration Systems

Protect your family from the hidden dangers of unclean water by adding a water filtration system to your indoor swimming pool.

You may use chemicals such as chlorine or bromine as cleansing agents to kill off any bacteria or algae that may be present in the water. However, these products make your eyes burn and your skin dry out after swimming. Yet, with water filtration systems, you can make your pool both clean and chemical-free.

Swimming Pool Water Filtration Systems

An indoor swimming pool is covered by the ceiling of the room. Therefore in contrast to an outdoor swimming pool, it is not necessary to install a huge water treatment system. Only dust can truly affect and damage your water.

However, be careful where you place your water pumps. Indeed, the noise can be quite loud so make sure to place them in a closed place.

Pool filtration systems

Also, there is a lot of confusion about various pool filtration filters, and many different opinions. Here are a few facts to consider. The first is that a pool can be properly maintained with any of the filter systems available:
Sand – The bullet proof filter : Water is pushed through a bed of filter sand and removed through a set of lateral tubes at the bottom. The filter area of a sand filter is equal to the area of the filter itself
Cartridge – The economic low maintenance filter : This one is easy to understand. Water passes though a filter material and the filter captures the debris
Diatomaceous Earth (DE) – The water polisher : Diatomaceous Earth is mined and is the fossilized exoskeletons of tiny diatoms. They are used to coat « grids » in the filter housing and act as tiny sieves to remove debris. They are very small and as such can filter out particles as small as 5 microns
