As the sunset by having a more beautiful effect and the pool is better illuminated.
The filtering is performed by an overflow duct and a Rieselfiltersystem. The filter tank stands in the cabinet.

The whole system is very old but works fine.
Now after 5 months the filter has not been cleaned and has not lost any of its power.

Other equipment:
An old Bodenfluter I have placed in the filter basin is used as a normal heater, thereby a more uniform heating in the pool allows.
