International swimming pool and water treatment specialist Waterco Ltd has extended its eco-focused EnviroPro range with the launch of a new generation of superior pool water filter media, Waterco’s Glass Pearls.
Waterco’s Glass Pearls offer much finer filtration than other alternatives and are therefore capable of providing outstanding water purity and clarity (filtration below 3 microns). They also require 20 per cent less water for backwashing compared to sand.
Ultimate water purity
“Whereas other filter media may contain different contaminants, Waterco’s Glass Pearls are chemically inert for the ultimate water purity,” says Waterco group marketing director, Bryan Goh.
“In fact, they have been independently lab tested for leaching contaminants and found to be well within Australian Drinking Water Guidelines.”
At only 0.6mm by 0.8mm in size, their narrow particle size enables in-depth superior filtration. The spherical shape also results in low friction levels, also reducing the need to backwash and saving pool owners both time and precious water.
Not only that, Glass Pearls are safe to handle and safe to service, explains Goh: “Unlike crushed glass, Glass Pearls are spherical and do not have sharp edges, making them really safe to use. And if there’s ever a failure of the filter’s laterals and glass Pearls flow into the swimming pool, they pose no risk of injury to swimmers.”
Ultimate time saving
Glass Pearls are also easy to install, enabling a rapid start up of the media filter. Plus its high purity means very little backwashing is required to cleanse the filter media prior to commissioning the filter.
