The pool in a country site or in your own home today is not a "wonder", a homemade artificial reservoir is a favorite place for swimming, recreation and active sports activities. However, in order for the pool to bring joy, it is necessary to arrange for it the right care. In accordance with sanitary standards, the filtration of water in the pool should be carried out daily, regardless of whether the pond was used or not. Late treatment of water can cause the development of infectious and skin diseases. For the care of home water bodies of frame, stationary and inflatable types, special equipment is used - filters for pools.
The principle of operation of cleaning plants is quite simple. Contaminated water from an artificial reservoir is fed into the water intakes by means of a pump, is passed through a filter unit, and is sent back to the pool.
The classification of water filters is based on the cleaning method and the type of filter material. According to the method of action, filtering devices are divided into the following types:
In electrophysical filters water purification is carried out by means of ozone, silver and copper ions, ultraviolet. Ozonization, ultraviolet radiation and ionization are an effective method of filtration, are characterized by a high degree of purification, but the cost of electrophysical filters is quite high. In the construction of chemical apparatus, various reagents — chlorine, bromine, and iodine — act as the filtering component. Chemical reagents can have a negative effect on the skin, in some cases can cause allergies. Combined filtering installations are a complex combination of several varieties of filters at once.
Many owners of private homes in order to reduce the cost of maintaining the pool used for cleaning ponds homemade filter installation. Before you make a filter for the pool on your own, you should prepare the composite components of the filtering system:
- plastic capacity of 60-65 liters;
- coarse fractional quartz sand;
- a pump with a six-way valve that allows you to change the operating modes of the pump;
- polypropylene pipe.
For the manufacture of the filter artisanal method we select a container with a wide neck. As the case, you can use a plastic barrel or canister. Capacity set at some distance from the tank with water. Quartz sand is poured inside the case. To improve the cleaning efficiency between the sand, you can lay a layer of activated carbon or graphite. The barrel filled with filter material is tightly closed. A homemade filter is connected to the pump, connecting one hose to the device and the other to the drain of the pool.
Filtration is an important component of the water treatment system; purified water does not contain harmful impurities and unpleasant odors. The water filter will make your stay at the home pool not only pleasant, but also safe for your health!
