Where Should I Locate My Pool Filter System?

When it comes to your swimming pool, there are a lot of things you need to take into consideration. One of those is the location of your filter system.

When it comes to installing your pool filter system, there are a few factors you'll need to consider. The first is the location of your pool-will it be in the sun or in the shade? The next is the location of your pump and filter-should they be close to the pool or further away? And finally, what type of filter system will you be using-an above ground system or an in-ground system?

If your pool is in the sun, it's best to install the pump and filter near the pool. This will help keep the pump from overheating. If your pool is in the shade, it's okay to install the pump and filter further away from the pool.

If you're using an above ground filter system, it's best to install the pump and filter close to the pool. This will help keep the tubing from kinking. If you're using an in-ground system, it's okay to install the pump and filter further away from the pool.

No matter what type of pool filter system you're using, it's important to follow the manufacturer's instructions. This will ensure that your pool is properly filtered and that your pump doesn't overheat.

Pool equipment enclosure

A pool equipment enclosure is a great way to protect your pump and filter system from the elements. It will also help keep the area around your pool clean and organised.

There are a few things you'll need to consider when choosing a pool equipment enclosure. The first is the size of your pool equipment-will it fit inside the enclosure? The next is the type of enclosure- standard or backless?

There are a few different types of sound proof pump enclosures available here at the Acoustic Box.

Standard’ enclosure means that it has a rear panel. A backless’ enclosure does not have a rear panel – but has 2 ‘wall strips’ and a ‘horizontal bridge’ ‘in lieu if the rear panel. Pls click here for pictures

Backless enclosures are an alternative when the equipment is located within 50mm of a wall. In such cases, The Acoustic Box offers a backless variant of each model, with most of the back section (against the wall) free for equipment/pipes/electricals etc to be located. Please note, backless enclosures add 50mm to the depth.

Backless boxes utilise 2 ‘wall strips’ which connect the enclosure to the wall, with a ‘horizontal bridge’ affixed to the top of the wall strips to ensure the system is fully enclosed. The wall strips should be attached to the wall, and 3 locations are available along the height of the wall strip to affix to the wall. The wall strips are 115mm wide (the part that is affixed to the wall) and are located on each side of the box.

No matter what type of enclosure you choose, it's important to make sure that it is properly ventilated. This will help prevent your equipment from overheating.
