The filter keeps the pool clean and shinning. When the water is pushed through the filter by the pump small particles of dirt and debris are trapped in the filter and not returned to the pool water. In a sand filter the debris eventually will compromise the efficiency of the filter. The sand performance. In a cartridge filter there is no backwashing and usually a once a year cleaning will keep the filter running as it should.
The heater is the luxury you should not skip. The heater will warm the pool so that it is more comfortable to use. The heater will provide a longer swimming season. Usually a heater will run on natural gas but if it is not available a propane unit can be used.
A salt generator turns the salt placed in the pool into chlorine. The chlorine produced by salt generating is a more gentle form than using pucks or liquid. It allows the swimmer to spend a longer time in the pool without the wrinkling skin and it does not fade swim wear or turn hair green.
Automatic Pool Cleaners
It is so easy to keep your pool free of debris using an automatic pools cleaner. We feature many different models such as the Hayward AquaVac robotic cleaner, the Hayward Navigato and the Polaris robotic cleaners.
Hayward Aqua Rite Salt System
The Aqua Rite Electronic Chlorine Generator (also known as a salt chlorinator) is the largest selling system in the world. It automatically produces pure chlorine every day while the pool is being filtered and distributes it evenly throughout the pool via the return jets. The Aqua Rite uses a low concentration of salt dissolved in the pool water (below the level of taste) to maintain daily chlorine. It is also NSF certified and approved for use on commercial and public pools. The Aqua Rite easily installs on the standard filtration systems, both for new construction and on existing pools.
