This is the driving force of your entire pool. Pumps pull water from the surface skimmers and pool-bottom main drains. Then, it sends the water to the filter for cleaning, to the heater for heating, and to the sanitization system for disinfecting before returning it back to the pool through the inlets, or “returns”.


This is the main contributor to clean, clear, and sparkling water. There are two main types of filters used in the industry: sand filters and cartridge filters. As water travels through a sand filter, suspended dirt particles become trapped in the filter’s silica sand media or cartridge.


This is what puts some of the “luxury” into “luxury swimming pools”. As the name suggests, heaters warm up pool water for you, typically using natural gas to efficiently do so. They are great for extending your pool season by heating the water quickly in the spring and keeping it warm into the fall.


There are a variety of system options available that will remove algae and bacteria from your pool water. Most commonly people use chlorine to sanitize their pools which comes in a variety of forms such as liquid, tablets, or granules. In recent years, Salt Water Sanitation systems have become increasingly popular as it almost eliminates the handling of harsh chemicals while still adding chlorine sanitation to your pool through a process called electrolysis.


Automatic cleaners are the perfect solution to keeping your pool sparkling clean. Every pool needs to be cleaned on a regular basis not only to maintain appearance but also to help reduce the amount of sanitizer you use in your pool. Suction cleaners are a tried and true method of cleaning your pool using your pump and filtration system. They connect right into your skimmer, using the suction created by your pump to move the unit around the pool, and then sending the debris to be caught in your pump basket.

In recent years, robotic cleaners have really taken off. They are completely self contained units meaning they run on their own (using a 110v plug) and collect all debris within the unit. Robotic cleaners also allow you to clean the bottom on your pool without sacrificing proper filtration and top skimming.
