A sand filter and a pool pump are two separate entities not one. A sand filter is just that === a filter. period. The pump or circulating pump - not a sand filter pump - is just what the name implies --- a pump -- it pumps water. period. Converting to a salt system has nothing to do with wither the pump or the filter. A slat water system is a totally separate unit with a device contained within a cylinder type apparatis controlled or operated electronically that is plumbed into your pool's circulation system. It converts salt - that which you pour into the pool - swimming pool salt - not rock salt or table salt - ---into chlorine. YOU CAN NOT JUST POUR SALT INTO A POOL AND CALL IT A SALT SYSTEM. And yes, you could probably convert to a salt system.K
I want to change my existing sand pool filter into a salt filter system, Is it possible? can I don this easily or have to change out the whole pump? By the way, i have a hayward system and my pool is 18x16 inground. thanks
Starting at the pool first is the static skimmer then the leaf basket then the hair filter basket on the inflow side of the pump then the pipe from the pump to the filter then the pipe from the filter to the pool return The chlorinator sits on the pool return pie at the highest place in the system.
NO POWER CORDS IN THEW POOL ! I KNOW ITS HARD TO KEEP THESE CLEAN SO THE BEST WAY IS TO FIND A INGROUND PUMP AND FILTER SAY A 1 HP STA RITE DURA GLAS AND A 50 SQ FOOT CARTRIDGE TYPE FILTER. WHEN THE POOL GOES BAD YOU WILL BE ABLE TO RESELL THE PUMP AND FILTER AND GET YOUR MONEY BACK..
recirculate is a function o a pool pump system that draws in water from the pool, through the pump, bypassing the filter and going straight back into the pool. Its usefull for evenly spreading chemicals through the water that you dont want in the filter such as flocculant
There are return fittings built into the pool walls. You will hook up the pump to the pool filter using PVC connections. What type of pool and pump/filter do you have? I can answer the question more thoroughly with more information.
You back wash a pool filter not a pool pump. Read your manual. Call the pool store with the brand of filter and back wash valve that you have and they will advise.
ask a science teacher
If no water is visible around pump/filter mechanism then there is a crack somewhere in the pool or pipes leading to and from pump/filter.
Setting the filter to backwash cleans the filter, running your pump to filter cleans the water in the pool. Brushing the walls of your pool cleans the walls of your pool... and so on.
Pool filters do not get cloged the pump is the problem
