The direction of the pool circulation: within the pool; water should circulate in a counter clockwise direction.

Starting at the skimmer, water travels from the skimmer to the pump (the pump is what makes everything work like the heater etc, from the pump to the filter, thru the heater, thru a chlorinator if you have one , back to the pool.

Can not using chemicals hurt a pool?

In general terms, a swimming pool needs to have disinfectant (usually chlorine or bromine) present in the water and a pH between 7.0 and 8.0 to be safe for swimmers. If no disinfectant is present, organisms may grow that are dangerous to people or harmful to the pool. Even if a pool is not in use, if there is water in the pool, a residual amount of disinfectant, proper pH, circulation of water through the filter and regular cleaning is necessary to maintain the pool to prevent damage to the pool finish and mechanical equipment. If the water sits without circulation or is not treated properly, algae may form and metal parts in the pool pump or heater may be damaged.
