Traditional Solution
Most countries recommend minimum filtration rates for public swimming pools. These filtration rates are intended to ensure proper standards of hygiene.
To comply with these government regulations, the filtration and circulation pumps must be capable of pumping a required volume of water in the worst case scenario i.e.when the filters are clogged. When the filters are new, their resistance is very low, so excessive amounts of water are circulated through the pool. The filters then experience a period of high wear until they become clogged and the flow rate they experience decreases toward design conditions. Due to the issues of public safety, it is frequently found that these pumps have been significantly oversized.
