Swimming Pool Equipment
Unlike most of our competitors, Central Pools services and installs what we sell. Central carries all major brands of pumps, filters, heat pumps, heaters and chlorine generators.
Filters remove organic impurities such as dirt, leaves, grass, hair, and body oils from the water. The importance of proper swimming pool or spa filtration cannot be overstated. The reasons for filtration are obvious - clear water not only looks beautiful, but it is also necessary for health and safety reasons. Much of the material suspended in the water, derived from plants and bathers provide food for bacteria and algae to grow. It is these materials that must be removed in order for a pool or spa to be maintained in a clear, safe and sanitary condition.
There are 3 types of filters used in the swimming pools
There are features and benefits associated with each of these filter medias. Let the experts at Central Pools help choose which type of filtration best suits your needs.

Energy Efficient Pool Pumps Save Energy & Money
EcoStar Variable Speed Pump
EcoStar variable speed pump-the most efficient pool pump available at any speed. This pool pump can save up to 90% on your energy costs compared with any single-speed unit. Instead of running continuously at maximum power, the EcoStar pump efficiently regulates its flow according to the pool’s requirements at any given time. It is suitable for new construction as well as the aftermarket.

Chlorine Production Cycle:
Through a process called electrolysis, chlorine generators produce chlorine constantly (when the pump is running) from salt added directly to your swimming pool. This keeps a residual of chlorine in the pool that prevents algae and bacteria from growing. The Salt Chlorine Generator is installed on the return side of the filter system after your heater.
We stock major brands of chlorine generators for a variety of budgets. Come down to the store to find out which generator is best for your swimming pool.
Eco-Matic Chlorine Generators
Simplify your life and get back to nature with an ECO-matic salt water sanitation system. Enjoy naturally clean, sparkling pool water with the convenience, reliability and simplicity of ECO-matic.
Aquarite Chlorine Generators by Hayward
The Aqua Rite™ is the easiest way for you to sanitize your pool, and keep your pool crystal clear and silky smooth! The Aqua Rite™ uses common salt (the same salt used in water conditioners) and converts it into "free" chlorine. The chlorine sanitizes your pool and then reverts back into salt. That's right, the salt is recycled and never wears out. With only a teaspoon of salt per gallon, the Aqua Rite™ produces enough fresh chlorine (up to 1.45 lb per day) to keep a 40,000-gallon pool sparkling clean without the chlorine smell. You'll never again have to worry about red irritated eyes, dry itchy skin, bleached bathing suits or green hair! With an Aqua Rite™ there is no more buying, mixing or storing chlorine, and think of the money you'll save. In 2004, over 40% of all new in-ground pools in the US use this technology to sanitize the pool.
- Soft, Crystal Clear, Luxurious Water
- No more hassles buying, storing, measuring chlorine.
- For any pool up to 40,000 gallons
- Digital display of salt level and diagnostic info plus 8 LED status indicators.
- Easy to use dial adjustment to generate more or less chlorine.
- "Super Chlorinate" mode

Your swimming pool is an investment and you want to maximize that investment. Without heat, pool usage is limited. Your family can exercise, relax, swim and entertain in warm water even when there is a chill in the air. Extend your season and enjoy quality time with your children and the company of friends in the comfort and security of the ‘resort’ in your own backyard!
Why a Heat Pump to Heat Your Pool?
Use Nature's Free Heat
A heat pump uses nature’s ‘free heat’ from the air to heat your pool water. It applies the same principle used in refrigerators and air conditioners with technology adapted to pools and spas. A heat pump can even pull residual heat from cool air. Electricity is only needed to transfer the heat, not to create it! It is significantly less expensive than gas or electric heating. Depending on energy costs, an AquaCal heat pump can save you up to 80% over propane gas, 50% to 70% over natural gas, and over 600% against electrical resistance heaters found on most spas. This makes a heat pump the most economical, safe and trouble-free way to heat your pool.
AquaCal Heat Pumps are the Most Efficient Way to Heat Your Pool... here's why:
It all comes down to the coefficient of performance (C.O.P.), the standard way of measuring the operating efficiency of a unit. Very simply, the higher the C.O.P., the more efficient the heat pump. For every dollar you spend to heat your pool, you get that dollar...multiplied by the C.O.P...back in ‘dollars worth’ of heat.
Only thermOLink™ by AquaCal
- Governs flow of water over the Titanium Heat Exchanger to provide maximum surface contact. This flow pattern increases BTU output while maintaining the highest COP.
- Directs the flow of water and refrigerant in opposite directions. This counter flow assures maximum heat transfer throughout the loop.
- Provides the strength and durability of titanium without sacrificing performance and efficiency.
- Minimizes pressure loss for compatibility with virtually all hydraulic schemes without compromising heating efficiency.
- Is easily winterized with a simple drain plug.
- Has a lifetime warranty on the Titanium Heat Exchanger.
AquaCal units feature ThermoLink Titanium Heat Exchangers.
At the heart of your heat pump is the patented ThermoLink™ Heat Exchanger. The primary cause of premature heat pump demise is the failure of the heat exchanger. Ordinary heat exchangers are made from a cupronickel alloy. This cupronickel material is susceptible to attack from the sanitizers used in pools and spas, and from other related water chemistry conditions. Once the heat exchanger fails, the heat pump is ruined. The ThermoLink™ Heat Exchanger tube is made from titanium, and is virtually impervious to water-chemistry damage.
- Patented counter-flow water management system
- Heats water faster and more efficiently
- Impervious to chemical corrosion
- Durability without sacrificing performance
- Lifetime limited warranty

Count on AquaCal heat pumps to last nearly twice as long as standard fossil fuel heaters.
Gas Heaters-Natural & Propane:
Gas pool heaters are a great way to heat your swimming pool water during times when cool days, evenings or nights would normally make your pool too cold to enjoy. Gas pool heaters are a great way to extend your swimming season, and provide heat on demand when you need it most. Where a quicker temperature rise is desired and unlike a heat pump and solar pool heaters, gas pool heaters can maintain any desired temperature regardless of the weather or climate and it can help prolong the swimming pool season. In fact, there is no pool heating system that has the ability to heat your pool water as fast a gas pool heater.
