How a Pool Works

How a Pool Works

Pool circulation systems work much like the body’s circulatory system. Water is drawn from your pool by the powerful suction created from the pump.

    1. The pump draws the water through the skimmers and drains, removing large debris during the journey.
    2. When the pump’s impeller is reached, pressure forces water through the filer, catching any debris not caught by skimmer baskets.
    3. Water is treated and heated before it is returned to the pool.

With so many moving parts, maintenance is key to keeping your pool circulation system at optimal performance.


Water is drawn from your pool from the suction created by the pump. The pump generates pressure and returns the water to the pool, passing through the filter, then the heater, and the chlorinator.
