Pool pumps provide water circulation in the pool and are therefore the engine of a pool filter system. The filter pump moves the water through the filter system such as sand filters or cartridge filters. When buying the pool pump, make sure that the power of the pump is also suitable for the water content of the pool.
Frequently asked questions for Filter pumps:
All Steinbach and INTEX filter systems (sand filter systems, cartridge filter systems & filter pumps) are suitable for salt water as long as the salt content in the water is below 0.5 % (salt electrolysis). Before winterising, clean the filter system thoroughly with standard bathroom cleaner, clear tap water and a lint-free cloth.
All filter systems and filter pumps have a sound pressure level* of < 70 dB(A).
*The emission volume is comparable to a large household appliance.
If the pressure is too low, the pre-filter is dirty and the pump is not getting enough water. Clean the pre-filter and check the suction line and the water level.
If the sand is newly filled in, or the sand is already very fine due to the use of several seasons, small sand particles may still be present. The solution is to backwash several times until the water comes out clear, or to fill in new sand.
