BASIC EXPLANATION OF POOL CIRCULATION SYSTEMAl Alia
This is a basic design of a pool system. The water in the pipes is being pulled from the main drains, and skimmer to the pump. Once the water is pulled into the pump it is then pushed through to the Filter. The filter then filters out the debris in the water. The clean filtered water passes through the flow meter. The flow meter gauges the gallons per minute the pool pump is circulating. The water is then pushed through the heater where the water is heated depending if the heater is turned on. The heated water is then chemically treated by the automatic chlorinator before it returns back into the pool system, which are known as the return lines in the pool. This process continues itself throughout the day. The
health department requires that all commercial pools circulate during the hours the pool is available for use. The pool system is also required to have a turn-over rate of 6 hours. Which means the pool must circulate the entire water volume in the pool at least every 6 hours.
