Basics

How a Swimming Pool Works

Whether you have an inground pool or above ground pool, all pools essentially work the same:

  • There's a pool body with an interior surface of vinyl, plaster, tile, fiberglass or a combination of these materials.

  • Pool Water is drawn into the filter system (blue lines) from the skimmer & main drain (if equipped)

  • Water comes into the filter system thru the 3-way valve (if equipped) & into the pump / motor


     how a swimming pool filter system works
 

  • Water travels into the filter (either Sand, DE or Cartridge) where fine dirt & debris are removed

  • After the filter, the clean or cleaner, filtered water goes thru the heater (if equipped)

  • Filtered & heated (not all pools) water returns to the pool (red lines) thru the return inlets
