Filtration and Recycling

Like any natural habitat, a swimming pool also has its life cycle, which keeps the environment balanced and healthy.
The heart that moves the pool is the filtering system and water recycling system.
The water recycling system recycles water from the pool and conveys it for filtering, disinfecting and back to the pool. There are two recycling system: skimmer and overflow.


Skimmer

Skimmers are openings located along the top edge of the pool. These receive the water and convey it to the sand filter. Once disinfected, the water is again introduced into the pool through the supply inlets.
The system is very simple and therefore very popular. It must be emphasised however that recycling is by means of the skimmers which must therefore be correctly positioned, while there must be enough of them to prevent any stagnant areas and the risk of leaves or other floating objects not being quickly removed from the water surface.

Proteus® integrated overflow

The overflow system is more complex and costly than skimmer system but Proteus® has invented a new Integrated overflow system, a novel combination between a prefabricated technical room and a compensation tank recessed in the garden.
This system permits avoiding costly and complex masonry works, with considerably lower costs and easier installation. An overflow pool thus becomes very affordable.
