Filters & Pumps
The filtration system acts as the lungs for your pool. It allows you to purify your pool, keeping the water clear, healthy and pure. Unfiltered water will cause impurities to build up, allowing bacteria to develop. Filtration systems purify your pool by regularly renewing the water inside.

The filter and the pump are directly responsible for the quality of the water in your pool. These two components live in your technical space, an independent outdoor space which is protected from the elements.
They constitute the primary mechanism in the effort to clean and purify your water, playing a key role to keep your water crystal clear and safe for swimming.
In the filtration circuit, the water is “pressurised” by the power of the pump and is forced through the filter and cleaned mechanically.
The pump is a key element of the filtration system, forcing the water through the filter. Without the pump, you’ll never achieve crystal clear water.
The pump’s suction system takes pool water from the skimmer to the filter. It also contains a pre-filter, which works to trap the largest impurities.
You must choose a pool pump which is suitable for the volume of your swimming pool.
The filter acts to purify the water in your pool using a filter cartridge, which removes the purities in your water. There are various sorts of filter available, such as sand filters, diatom filters or cartridge filters.
- Sand filter: the water is filtered by being passed through a layer of sand;
- Diatom filter: here, the water is filtered using an extremely fine, porous and absorbent powder made from fossilised microscopic algae skeletons – these are known as diatoms. This thin layer of diatoms is spread onto a nylon or polyester membrane, which is stretched over a support;
- Cartridge filter: water is filtered using a cartridge made from plant or synthetic fibre.
