Broadway ph. EA 5-2665 Ease of pool maintenance is important to the pool builder as well as to the pool owner, and new .methods of cleaning pools have recently been developed. One of them is a self-cleaning device which is based on a sweeping action provided by directional jet inlets, properly spaced around the perimeter and floor of a curved wall pool. Strategically placed jet inlets in the pool walls and floor provide a continuous sweeping action parallel to the walls and floor towards an anti-vortex main drain. The jet inlets are molded of Cycolac, which eliminates rusting, electrolysis, etc. The sweeping a c t i o n takes away the dirt, while the water remains clear. Inlets vary in their flow patterns. Velocity and t* e volume of w a t e r passing through the jet inlets are important. To insure these, a shorter turnover of the pool water and a larger filter and more pump capacity is necessary. Usually a pool water turnover of four to five hours is required. A pressure type filter is recommended because of the suction needed for the main drain T h e manufacturer must engineer the device for each size and shape of pool, because of the hydraulics involved, which means proper placement and full coverage of the jet inlets, proper pipe sizes, filter size, pump volume, etc. The system should be operated most, or all, of the time to permit the sweeping of dirt and turbid particles into the main drain before they reach the floor. It is designed to work even in Tucson's desert where sand storms are prevalent. However, the sweeping system cannot remove rocks, branches or large leaves, since these would quickly c l o g the pump strainer. It is designed to remove fine airborne dirt and small objects. The pool owner will have to occasionally remove heavy debris, and will have to brush the pool regularly and check the filter often. The drawback to this system is that it cannot be installed economically in existing pools since it is an integral part of the construction. Cost of this self-cleaning system is about $350 for a conventional 15-foot by 30- foot pool, and is proportionately higher for larger pools. The self-cleaning pool eliminates hours of drudgery usually spent in vacuuming the pool. PAGE 70 TUCSON DAILY CITIZEN SATURDAY, APRIL 27, 1963
