Parts of a Pool and Their Functions
Your pool has many key parts that work together to ensure it runs smoothly. Let’s take a look at each one and what it does:
The pump is responsible for circulating the water in your pool. This part helps to keep the water clean and prevents stagnation.
The filter works with the pump to remove dirt, debris, and other contaminants from the water. This device keeps the water clean and clear.
The skimmer is a device that helps remove leaves and other large debris from the surface of the water. It prevents the debris from sinking to the bottom of the pool, clogging the filter, and dirtying the pool.
The deck is the area around the pool where you can put chairs, tables, and other furniture. It also provides a safe, slip-resistant surface for swimmers to enter and exit the pool.
The Main Drain
The main drain is located at the bottom of inground pools, usually at the deep end, and helps to circulate the water for skimming. It helps to stir up debris from the bottom of the pool.
The Suction Lines
The suction lines are responsible for drawing water from the pool and into the pump. They are typically located around the perimeter of the pool.
The Return Lines
The return lines take water that’s filtered and pumped back into the pool. You can usually find them around the deck area. The return lines help circulate the water in the pool and keep it clean.
The Return Jets
The return jets are located around the pool’s perimeter and help circulate the water. They also create a current that helps swimmers exercise in the pool.
The Chemical Feeder
The chemical feeder is responsible for adding chemicals to the pool water. This helps to keep the water clean and safe to swim in. You can find the chemical feeder near the pump on the side of the pool.
