Filters and Pumps for Residential and Commercial Swimming Pools

Having a swimming pool at home is the dream of many people, but to keep it always ready for use you need to invest in some care. One of them even concerns the choice of pump and filter for the pool, essential equipment in the water cleaning process.

The pool motor and filter kit are responsible for keeping the water free of impurities and microorganisms that could harm the health of swimmers. Pool pumps pump water to filters, elements made up of a series of mechanisms, such as sand filters, cartridges, baskets and filtering cells.

Through these mechanisms, the filters remove solid impurities from the water, which is returned to the clean pool.

Types of pool filters

There are several types of pool filters that participate in the process of cleaning and filtering the water. But to ensure efficient filtration, you need to choose the ideal model for your pool.

Check out the types of Sodramar pool filters below:

  • FM filters: manufactured for residential use, they have an anticorrosive thermoplastic tank, excellent resistance to internal pressures and filtering capacities ranging from 19 liters of water to 352 liters.
  • FVP filters: recommended for commercial use, for pools with up to 611 liters of water. To ensure efficient and safe filtration, the FVP is made of rotofilated fiberglass and there are no seams in its structure. Thanks to this, it withstands high internal pressures (above 2,5 kgf/cm²).
