We design the most important part of your pool's maintenance: the filtration system.

Pump room

The filtration room houses all the equipment needed to keep a pool clean, including a pump, filter, and chemical feeder. The filter system drawing allows understanding the flow of water in the pool, which is essential to ensure that the filtration equipment is correctly installed and functioning properly.

Filtration layout plan

For those who wish to install their pool filtration system, a layout plan is essential. It outlines the location of the pool filter, pump, heater, and other components, as well as the most effective way to connect them to the pool piping. It also helps to identify any potential problems before the installation begins.

Expert advice and installation

Installing an overflow pool filtering system can be made easy with proper drawing and guidance. It’s like following a map—if you know where you’re going and how to get there, it’s a simple process. Even complex tasks can be completed successfully with the right preparation and support.

Why, how, and for whom should a pool filtration plan be made?

We are not talking about a simple sketch, but a real mapping of the hydraulic network in the pump room. The first one gives a basic understanding of the structure of the hydraulic network and how it works. The second drawing, with its precise measurements and details, provides a more accurate understanding of the layout and allows for better decision-making about where to place components and machines.

The pool plant room

The pump room houses mechanical and electrical components, such as pumps, filters, and heaters, that are necessary to keep the pool clean and functioning properly. Without the equipment room, the pool would not be able to provide the clean, safe and enjoyable swimming experience that is expect


How big should be the plant room?

The plant room must be large enough to accommodate all the necessary equipment, ensuring that it is easily reachable.

We always ensure that the room has the right dimensions to avoid overcrowding and allow for proper maintenance of the equipment.

Where to place the pool equipment room?

This is one of the first questions our clients ask us, and we answer them long before the creation of the hydraulic network drawing. The owner’s preference can help determine the most appropriate spot for the filtration system, and this is something we consider during the design phase. You can house the filtration system in an annexed shelter or in a room in your house. Otherwise, we integrate this space into the overall pool design.

By burying the space in the ground and positioning it next to the pool, we can achieve the most efficient and visually pleasing result.

Of course, before agreeing to use an existing annex, we check various points. For example, if the annex is too far away or the difference in level is too high, the annex will be difficult to use. After confirming the annex meets all requirements, the next step is to develop a filtration system that meets the needs of the project.

    The pool filtration system

    This is the whole system that ensures the high quality of the water in the pool. Except for certain devices, such as the heat pump, everything is installed in the technical room.

    Here's how to connect your pool filtration

    Whether it is a regular pool or a vanishing edge pool, each piece of equipment has a predefined position in relation to the rest of the installation. This order ensures that the water is correctly filtered and circulated before it is returned to the pool, and that all the pieces are correctly connected. The use of rigid PVC ensures that the connections remain secure and efficient over time, with minimal maintenance.

    What's the secret to sizing the filter unit?

    Considering various factors like the pool’s water volume, type of overflow, length of overflow, and desired effect of the customer, the pump flow rate and the filter diameter of the pool are decided accordingly. Additionally, the number of people using the pool and the type of filter and pump used, as well as the filter’s maintenance needs and the pump’s power consumption are all accounted for.

    How do we design a filter unit layout plan?

    The filtration network plan is the next step after mapping the pool piping network. By considering the exact location of the pipes from/to the pool, the filtration unit plan can be designed to maximize its effectiveness.

    The scale used (1:20) allows for enhanced detail and accuracy, allowing all the subtle contours of the equipment to be seen and accounted for. The colors make it easier for the user to identify different networks, and the arrows help indicate the direction of water flow.

    The pump(s), the filter, the treatment system, e.g. chlorine or salt, the level control box, the by-pass for the heating are positioned in the right place both in relation to the hydraulic circuit and in space. Each valve or non-return valve is symbolized.  In short, you’ll have a complete document for the installation of the filtration of your pool, and it’ll be enough for your plumber or yourself to follow it to install the filtration without overlapping pipes on the ground; you’ll know where the pipes come from, whether they’re the return inlets, the suction inlet or the bottom drain.

    Utilize our advice to its full potential.

    Furthermore, each advice file comes with an in-depth guide that outlines best practices for the installation process as well as useful tips and considerations for the setup.

    • A correctly sized pump flow and filter diameter,
    • the regulation of the balance tank,
    • the characteristics of the electrical box,
    • what to replace the sand in the filter,
    • and much more.

    Does having a filtration layout plan help ?

    For turnkey construction by a pool builder, you do not require such a drawing. However, if you are thinking of using a plumber who is not a pool specialist, you will need one. Professionals will need to know, for instance, where to place each valve, check valve, or what are the characteristics of electrical boxes. He will then be able to give you an accurate estimate without the risk of forgetting, and his work will be easier.

    The pool owner has a thorough understanding of how to ensure the pool is kept safe and clean for swimmers.

    Who needs a filtration installation plan ?

    Filtration network plans are useful for homeowners who want to build their own pools. It will be up to them to select the people involved and to purchase the materials themselves. Depending on their involvement, this could save 15 to 50%. For instance, a homeowner who aims to save money may choose to buy a basic pump and filter, rather than investing in the latest, most energy-efficient model.

    How do I get a filter unit network plan?

    The pool dealers sometimes offer to make a diagram of the installation that will be displayed in the equipment room. However, they are unable to create a detailed and accurate plan, and you have to buy the hardware from them.
    Hiring a professional designer with all the technical know-how is another option
