Optimising Pool Water Filtration for Energy Efficiency

Sand filters have been used in commercial swimming pools for over 100 years, but how has this technology evolved over time and are we really using sand filtration to its full potential? This presentation examines filtration practices and the opportunities available to pool operators to significantly enhance the efficiency of their whole water treatment system, whilst reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions.

Topics include:

  • What is good water quality
  • The damaging effects and energy impact of poor water quality
  • Types of pool pollution and how best to deal with them
  • Comparison of UK and European filtration design standards & practices
  • Filters – necessary design features to optimise efficiency
  • Benefits of optimised filtration
  • Impact on energy & carbon emissions
  • Other opportunities for efficiency gains
  • Filter media properties, selection & maintenance.
