Compass Pools Engineered for Simplicity

Easy Pool Maintenance

Engineered for Simplicity

The Compass filter system

The filter system is at the heart of the equipment vital to your Compass Pool’s correct and optimal operation. Thanks to its compact dimensions (0.9m x 1.40m / 2’11” x 4’7″) it can be installed almost anywhere. We advise installation in a frost-free area (i.e. a garage, cellar, shed, purpose built pool house etc) and at a maximum distance of 25m (81′) from the pool’s roller cover reel (optimum under 8m). The system is carefully specified by Compass Pools to ensure optimal and most-efficient performance. The filter system is fully assembled and pre-plumbed in our factory prior to shipping to your home. This allows for better quality control and is significantly more cost-effective than buying the individual items of equipment and assembling them and installing them at your home, and allows for much quicker installation times.

Cyclonic Filtration

The new optimal cyclonic filtration system from Compass operates off the same principal as a Dyson vacuum cleaner to centrifugally collect the dirt from your pool water. This has several benefits to the pool owner including:

  • Back-washing is eliminated, saving up to 20,000 litres of water a year.
  • Filtration is done down to 3 microns. This reduces chemical uses.
  • Plant room size is less than halved.
  • Sand changes are a thing of the past.
  • Is compatible with septic tanks and those not on mains drainage.
  • Cleaning is simplified and reduced in frequency.

The complete filter system.

The complete filter system comprises essential components tailored for optimal pool maintenance and water quality. Anchored by a sand filter, adept at capturing minute particles, it ensures water clarity of the highest standard. It also includes the latest pool technology including a quiet pump, semi-automatic chlorine feeder and electrical control units with power protection.

These elements provide long-lasting functionality, hassle-free upkeep and uninterrupted enjoyment of the pool environment for you and your family.

The Complete Filter System – Keeping Your Pool Sparkling

At the heart of your pool’s filtration system is our meticulously designed circulation and filtration unit. This state-of-the-art system includes four key components working in harmony to keep water clean and crystal clear:

Sand Filter – The high-performance sand filter captures suspended particles as water passes through, screening out dust, pollen, dirt, and debris as tiny as 20-40 microns for an immaculately clean pool.

Quiet Pump – The custom-built pump circulates water efficiently through the filter system. It operates as whisper-quiet as possible – perfect for relaxing atmospheres. Premium polymer housing and corrosion-proof components ensure this pump maintains peak performance season after season.

Semi Automatic Chlorine Feeder – This chemical dispenser connects inline to provide regulated chlorine or bromine dosing to maintain proper sanitizer levels for unsurpassed water quality. Convenient tablets last 1-3 weeks per refill.

Electrical Control Unit – The main control centre automates equipment scheduling for optimal efficiency. Timeclock settings and freeze protection promote proper circulation while the GFCI breaker cuts power at the first sign of a potentially dangerous electrical issue – keeping every aspect of your pool safe.

With proactive water care built right in, our complete filter system ensures your pool stays healthy, safe, and always ready to enjoy. Contact our team today to learn more about this high-performance four-part system.

Disinfection

Maintaining safe and hygienic water for you and your family to derive maximum pleasure from your Compass Pool is of paramount importance to us. Your filter system is equipped as standard with a semi-automatic dosing system for safely disinfecting your pool water. Without disinfection, algae and potentially harmful bacteria, introduced into the water from the surrounding environment and from bathers, could proliferate to levels where they could potentially pose a health risk.

Happily, your Compass Pools’ semi-automatic dosing system takes care of this to ensure your peace of mind. To limit the chlorine concentration to a low 1.5ppm (parts per million), your system can be equipped as standard with copper cartridge ionisation. Copper ionisation has a dual effect. Organic and mineral substances in the water are oxidised, and copper ions inhibit the growth of algae and coagulate particles so they can be more easily extracted by the filter.

Fully-automatic disinfection and pH control system (optional)

Whilst the standard semi-automatic dosing system which comes as standard with your Compass Pool ensures that a constant background dose of sanitiser is maintained, it still requires intervention to regularly test the water and add top-up doses of sanitiser (if required), and to also test and adjust the water’s pH (see our FAQs section for further information on pH). Why not therefore upgrade to our Compass Pools fully-automatic disinfection and pH system?

The fully automatic system is a more complex system than the semi-automatic. It constantly and automatically monitors your Compass Pool water’s two key chemical parameters, chlorine and pH, via an on-board computer.

The equipment is pre-programmed to maintain chlorine and pH levels at set parameters, constantly monitoring the water as it flows through the system 50 times a second, 24 hours a day. Where it detects any discrepancy in either reading, it automatically adds the required dose of the appropriate chemical to bring the reading back within the set parameters without any human intervention.

There are a number of fail-safe mechanisms built-in which alert the owner to any potential problems requiring the attention of an engineer, and the only attention required by the pool owner is a check on the levels of chemical in the dosing drums every few days and top-up as and when necessary. Alternatively, your Compass Pools dealer can fulfill this requirement requirement by way of a regular service visit. You can therefore spend more of your precious time enjoying your pool to the maximum, with the minimum of maintenance.
