Level measurement - pool hydraulics
The term 'pool hydraulics' refers to the water circulation system in swimming pools. Good pool hydraulics guarantee the proper distribution of disinfectants. Hydraulics does not only include the economical skimmer system to remove water from the surface, but also the more effective overflow system in swimming pools. From this overflow system, the water is led by water jets over the edge of the pool into an overflow channel, from where it enters the overflow tank. This tank is designed in such a way that when the pool is in use, the tank can contain the amount of water being moved. When the pool is not in use, it has enough water stored for back washing. To prevent the filter pump in the backwash tank from running dry, there is always a level measurement in these tanks. This measure ensures that fresh water is added to the pool when there is too little water in it due to backwashing. Level measurement also activates the pump if there is too much water in the overflow tank. Level measurement can take place hydrostatically. Here the water is put under pressure. The higher the pressure, the higher the water level. This measurement is done with level sensors. JUMO has a wide range of level sensors in plastic and stainless steel with various connections and wiring options.
