A private swimming pool or a beautiful pond in the garden. More and more people are not just dreaming about it, they are making this dream come true. But with the completion of the pond or the procurement of a swimming pool alone, it is not enough. There is more to it. Among other things, a permanent and regular maintenance and care, as well as keeping the water clean. Mostly a circulating pump including a built-in filter is included in the set-up pools. The disadvantage of this is that these paper filters are very quickly polluted and must be replaced after a few days. This can be quite expensive. Another solution for cleaning the water in the garden pond or swimming pool is the procurement of a sand filter system.

Everything for the garden: Sand filter Video Guide

With the help of a sand filter system not only filters impurities out of the water, it also ensures that the water remains constantly in motion. If you add the right water treatment to the whole, you have a pleasant water quality in the swimming pool or garden pond. The sand filter system itself consists of a sand filter tank, a pool pump, a filter medium and a multi-way valve. With these components, the filtration and treatment of the water takes place in a few steps: 1. With the pool pump, the water is sucked in via the floor drain and / or the skimmer. If this is a self-priming pool pump, it has a prefilter housing with a strainer basket to catch coarse stones and protect the pump from damage. This self-priming pool pump can be placed below the water level at any time. In normal-suction pool pumps, the water flows directly through the pump, causing rough stones to get into the pump where they either block or cause damage.2. From the pool pump, the water is pumped into the multi-way valve. This works in a similar way to a road intersection and, depending on the setting, forwards the water into the filter vessel, the canal or the pool.3. In the filter vessel, dirt particles and impurities remain in the special filter quartz sand. Important when buying this filter sand is to pay attention to the manufacturer's information. If this filter sand is too coarse, no dirt will stick to it and will flow back into the pool.4. Then the water is pumped back into the swimming pool via the multi-way valve and the connected pipe.

1. Filter performance: In order to be able to determine the filter capacity, it is best to calculate the capacity in the pool in liters and cubic meters. The indication of the filter performance of a sand filter system is in cubic meters. The following rule of thumb applies: The filter can filter the entire volume of a swimming pool every four hours. Thus, for example, For a swimming pool with a water volume of 16 cubic meters, a filter with a capacity of four cubic meters per hour. Important in the purchase is also the right pump. In this example, with a filter capacity of four cubic meters per hour, the water pump should deliver an output of 4000 liters per hour.2. Sand filter system or only sand filter? When buying one should already be aware of whether only a sand filter is needed or a complete sand filter system. Are in the scope of supply of the swimming pool a water pump including connection material available, so only the sand filter is needed. If none of this is available, there are already in the shop offered complete sand filter systems for all sizes of swimming pools. Fixed installation or better mobile filters? Mobile filter systems are suitable for swimming pools, which are only set up for the summer season. For permanent swimming pools, the sand filter systems are permanently installed in the equipment shaft. Here, however, the following factors should be considered: – Is the sand filter system the right size for the device shaft? – Is the pump suitable for the installation site? – Is the sand filter system suitable for the piping? ConclusionAlthough cartridges are included with smaller pools, they are more suitable for the early days, as they clog and pollute very quickly. However, a filter medium can remain in the filter vessel for up to three years without being replaced. In addition, a sand filter system is the heart of a swimming pool, especially since only in such a way and in combination with the right pool care products a professional filtration of the water is possible. The purchase of a sand filter plant is worthwhile once and for all.
