What is a filter pump for?

To keep a swimming pool clean, you don't just have to use a shovel net or a shovel pool robot to work, but also with a filter installation. A filter installation consists of a sand filter and a filter pump. The filter pump is a self-priming pump that circulates the swimming pool water in the swimming pool and the swimming pool installation.

Filter and filter pump installation diagram

A swimming pool filter pump should be used before sand filter (glass filter) must be installed. The suction pipe(s) are connected to the filter pump at the front. The output of the pump (top) is then connected to the six-way valve or automatic flushing valve. 

Frequently asked questions about filter pumps

You cannot just fit any filter pump to an installation. You have to take into account:

  • It volume of the pool : volume/4 is the flow rate of the pump for the pool
  • electrical connection : 220V (standard) or 380V (driving power)
  • distance between swimming pool and installation : if more than 10m it is best to install a heavier pump
  • diameter of the pipes
    • 38mm : between 5 & 10m³/h
    • 50mm : between 10 & 25m³/h
    • 63mm : between 25 & 45m³/
    • 90mm and more for larger flow rates

The pool water must pass through the filter 3 times a day for a perfect result. 

CALCULATION EXAMPLE filter pump calculation

pool 50m³ = 150m³/10h filter per day = 15m³/h

So for a pool of 50m³ you need a pool pump that pumps 15m³/h.

If you opt for a fixed flow rate, a fixed amount of water will pass through the filter installation. The larger your pool, the more powerful the filter pump must be to filter the water sufficiently.

If you connect a filter pump that is too light, it will have to work more (higher energy consumption). We recommend that you definitely connect a filter pump that corresponds to the volume of your pool.

Difference variable speed pump VS fixed speed/flow filter pump

If you opt for a frequency-controlled filter pump (variable flow rate), you can run the pump continuously at a lower frequency, which ensures lower energy consumption.

The purchase is a bit more expensive than a fixed flow-controlled pump, but after 3 seasons you have easily earned it back through your energy consumption. The energy efficient pool pumps are the new standard for well-functioning economical swimming pool filter installations.

An additional advantage of frequency controlled appliances is the noise they produce when operating. When the technical room is close to the swimming pool or the techniques are provided in the basement, it is opportune to opt for a variable speed pump, which makes much less noise.

Every filter pump we offer is equipped with a filter basket. This is a first buffer where you can remove the leaves and other dirt. It is best to clean the filter basket of a swimming pool pump regularly.

It is convenient to use NETSKIM. This net already collects a lot of floating dirt in the skimmer basket.

Also a pool robot can help with this. This automatic pool vacuum cleaner has a filter. As a result, most of the dirt from the pool has already disappeared. This ensures that the filter pump is less stressed.
