How a Pool Works

A pool is really not as complex a system as people think, it is a self contained body of water, no fresh water supply is needed except for periodic refilling from splash out or evaporation, the water is pull thru a dual bottom main drain & top water skimmer from a pump that runs 24 hours per day most commonly & efficiently with a variable speed or 2 speed pump for overnight periods to conserve energy, then push thru a filter for cleaning dirt & debris, the next phase is the optional heater which is definitely recommended in indiana for extended season life, finally the process of disinfection of bacteria, we prefer salt water process as opposed to straight chlorine, this process called “turnover” happens multiple times in a 24 hours period to keep pool clean & disinfected.
