Pool Equipment

The sunny days we enjoy in Southwest Florida means that an increasing number of home and business owners have their own pool. There are many things to be said about having a pool of your own, however, the responsibilities that come with it can be daunting as well. When you are looking for an efficient solution that is also sustainable and environmentally friendly, consider our solar pool equipment from Solar Energy Solutions of America today.



Cape Coral Solar Pool Heater - Solar Energy Solutions of America


All pools consist of the same main components that keep the water moving and clean, including a pump, filter, return lines, vacuum, drains, and skimmer. Each of the main components come in various types and models, which vary based on the pool’s location, size, and the owners’ preference. In addition, there are extra components that you can add to your pool to enhance it! We offer a variety of pool equipment to suit different needs:

  • Pool Pumps
  • Filter Housings
  • Electric Pool Heater
  • In-Line Chlorinators
  • Salt Generators

  • Pool Pumps:
    The most essential piece of equipment in your swimming pool! The pump is considered the heart of the pool equipment. The pump is used to move water through the drains, pipes, and other equipment within your pool. You cannot filter, clean, or heat your water without a pump. There are specific methods of adding chemicals that also rely on the pump to distribute the treatments in the pool. Pool water enters into the pump through the main drain and the skimmer, and to prevent large debris from entering the pump, there is a basket. Most automatic cleaners run with the pump by either drawing water in or pushing water out and supplying power for additional water features. In contrast to traditional pool pumps, a Variable Speed Pool Pump will help reduce your overall energy usage when circulating the water in your pool.
  • Filter Housings:
    You will need a filter to remove harmful sediments from the water in any pool. This confirms that your pool is safe for human use at any time. A filter housing is a cartridge that fits around your filter to direct water flow. A filter is a primary way of removing debris from pool water. Sand, Cartridge, and DE are the three different types of pool filters. Each filter has a different cleaning capacity. Whether in-ground or above-ground, every pool requires a filter of some kind. The pool water should flow directly into your pool filter from your pool pump. After entering the filter, the water will either return to your pool or go through other equipment like heaters. Filters need to be cleaned consistently to maintain their effectiveness.
  • Electric Pool Heater:
    A Solar Pool Heater may not always be the best fit for your home, depending on how much available roof space you have or the roof’s orientation. So, your next best option is a Heat Pump. An Electric Heat Pump is an on-demand heating source for your swimming pool, similar to the AC unit you use to cool your home. A pool heater heats the pool water to provide a more comfortable swimming environment and ideally extend the swimming season! Water first enters the pump and filter, then the heater, and returns to the pool via the return lines. The pool floor is the best place for return lines because the heat rises and will help maximize the effectiveness of the pool heater. There are three main heater types: Electric Heaters, Gas Heaters, and Solar Heating systems; each heater type can be used for spas and hot tubs.
  • In-Line Chlorinators:
    The most widely used chemical to sanitize pools is Chlorine. Chlorine kills viruses, germs, and bacteria. Most pools have a floating chlorinator that evenly dispenses the Chlorine into the pool, but this is not part of the pool’s existing plumbing system. There are other chlorinators that are a part of the pool’s plumbing that will add Chlorine directly into the plumbing lines. To avoid chemicals from eroding the equipment’s metal parts and pieces, a chlorinator will be plumbed into your existing equipment after the pump, filter, and heater (if available). Once the pool volume has diluted the chemicals, it is safe to return to the system via the pump.
  • Salt Generators:
    You may opt to use a saltwater system in your pool if you wish to reduce chloramines in the water. Having salt in your pool is essential as it acts as a natural antiseptic for the skin, preventing algae and bacteria growth. Salt generators use a process known as electrolysis to break down sodium chlorine. With a salt generator powered by solar energy, you can reap much of the same benefits while reducing your carbon footprint. Some pools use a salt generator as an alternative to Chlorine. This generator is plumbed into your existing equipment after the pump, filter, and heater (if available), similar to a chlorinator. A chemical reaction is created that converts the salt to Chlorine, which sanitizes the pool. This chemical reaction is caused by the salt generator having a coated plate that is electrically charged. This process eliminates some of the work of adding chemicals to your pool; however, you should still check your pool chemistry often!
