Buying Guides for Pool Pumps

Swimming pools have become household luxury and a vital part of the new generation. Homeowners are concerned to hook up that pump which meets out the specific needs of the swimming pool. The old pumps used force of gravity to propel water to filter but that method was not so efficient. Now the engineers have designed pressurized pump system, it proved more effectiveness. Although the selection of the best pool pump is a little bit difficult task, but it becomes easy to understand if someone gets familiar with relative key terms, matches the required strengths with manufacturer’s specifications then one makes the whole task of selection easy.


How to Calculate the Storage Capacity for Selecting Right Pool Pumps:

You have first to work out with how many gallons your swimming pool gets filled. The mathematical formulas to calculate gallons are dependent upon the shape of the swimming pools.

Rectangular Shaped Pools

To calculate storage capacity of rectangular pools you will calculate average depth, width and length of the pool. The formula would be as under

Number of Gallons = Average Depth X Width X Length X 7.5

To calculate average depth we divide by 2 to the sum of minimum depth and maximum depth. Suppose if you have a pool with width as 20 feet, length as 40 feet and its depth is minimum 4 feet and maximum 8 feet then average depth will be calculated by as 4+8= 12/2 i.e. 6 feet. The storage capacity of the pool will come out to be equal to 36,000 gallons

Total Storage Capacity= (6 ft. X 20 ft. X 40ft.X7.5) =36,000 Gallons

Some things you do not know about Ozone Generator!

When there are more and more concerns raised about pollution, people pay more attentions to a home appliance used as water, and air purifier – an Ozone Generator. Some think that their life becomes safer with ozonated water and purified atmosphere, while others still remain uncertainty about benefits of this machine. To deal with this round of questions, let’s find out how effective and safely when using an ozone equipment.

  1. Advantages of Ozone Generators

Ozone has a great disinfection effectiveness against bacteria and viruses. At varying levels, ozone can be used for filtering water, purifying air, processing foods by killing some bacteria and moulds.

Water Treatment

Ozone was first used in water purification in the 1800s and now it becomes more commonly used in Europe and Asia than United Stated. Ozone has enjoyed a long history of use and is known as a broad-spectrum biocide against many viruses.
