As I'll re As )>rlnklruf Water As the water passes from the pool to the pump the coagulate feeder supplies n chemical that coagulates foreign matter in suspension- In the water so that Ihe filters can take it out, The chlor- Inator supplies sufficient chlorine to kill the germs in the water and the alkalinity feeder sees to it that the water remains properly alkaline. All of these processes take place as the water passes through the pump house, It is then delivered to the lurgc pressure filter tanks through which It is forced and then delivered, clear and pure, back to the pool.
