Water Conservation – Water Saving Pool Filters

10 December 2010

The filtration system is the heart of your pool, pumping the water through a filter and returning it to the pool in pristine condition. But when it comes to conserving your precious H2O, not all pool filters are the same.

Be smart with your H2O

Save water with the latest innovative, water saving pool filters

In fact, there are several different kinds of filters, with cartridge filters using significantly less water and less energy to operate than sand or DE filters. Waterco’s Opal XL cartridge filters for example are extremely water efficient and are designed to house an extra-large filter cartridge, maximising dirt holding capacity and minimising filter maintenance.

But it’s the next generation of cyclone technology pool filters that are really making a splash.  The innovative MultiCyclone – an award-winning water saving pool filter designed and manufactured by Waterco and available in your local Swimart store – offers water saving with a twist.

This revolutionary compact swimming pool filtration device conserves precious pool water and reduces maintenance, easily saving up to 7000 litres of pool water per year. Fitted to existing pool filters or installed to new pools, it has no moving parts to wear and no filter components to clean or replace. It works by spinning sediment down to the sediment sump, while the cleansed water spirals upwards, and is cleaned by simply opening its purge valve.

In short, the pool water ends up cleaner with less upkeep. The MultiCyclone gathers dirt that would normally go into the filter, and drains it out. This cuts 80 per cent of the dirt that clogs your filter and extends its life.  Which is pretty clever!
