In light of recurring droughts in some regions of France, water consumption generated by private pools has been pointedly highlighted. However, the subject of balanced and sustainable water management has long been on the agenda of professionals in the sector and their customers. CF group is one of these players. A family group with a European dimension, they specialise in the manufacture and multi-specialist distribution of equipment for swimming pools and water treatment. Between product innovations and good practice, CF group encourages further reductions in the use of water in swimming pools.
Between product innovations and best practices, CF group encourages further reductions in the use of water in swimming pools.
Water is a precious and rare resource. In that respect, the use of water for swimming pools has been reduced by 45% in 25 years. This reduction has been made possible by two factors: the innovative ability of companies in the sector and the reduction in pool volumes. CF group encourages a better swimming pool with efficient equipment that reduces consumption and maximises the customer’s sense of comfort and tranquility, combined with some good practices:
In addition to the safety aspect, this helps to limit water evaporation. The honeycomb cover is a made-to-measure solution for reducing evaporation and therefore water consumption. Isothermal covers also consume less energy, helping to maintain or raise the water temperature. For discreet, elegant covers, users can choose slatted covers from the Del Premium range, such as Rollinside and Tixit.
Replacing a third of the pool’s water is largely sufficient. If emptying the pool or replacing the lining, there are water storage solutions such as CF Tank, in which 1 to 30 m3 of water can be stored.
Use an appropriate and well-dimensioned filtering process such as the Vitalia cartridge filter for efficient filtration and consequently to limit water consumption to a minimum during washing.
The Chemoform range comes with a water treatment guide. The objective is to provide precise answers, with products carefully developed to limit chemical use while protecting the pool and, above all, the bathers. Choosing the right products will ensure that pool equipment is operating at its optimum performance level.
With more than 70,000 pools being installed 2022, the family pool is now a widely popular part of French daily life. France has nearly 3.2 million private swimming pools, or approximately one private pool for just over 21 inhabitants(1) – making France the European leader in pool construction and the second largest in the world.
CF group, which operates in more than 40 countries, employs 1,200 people worldwide who work to respond to environmental concerns. The company is now aligned in all areas towards a less energy-consuming and increasingly connected pool. The CF group Technocentre encourages artificial intelligence and connectivity in order to adapt overall pool operation in real time, for controlled energy consumption: LivePool is an application to control equipment remotely and Watercom Vitalia Inline is an all-in-one solution for optimised pool treatment.
