Category : Filters & Pumps

There are three basic types of swimming pool filters: sand filters, cartridge filters, and diatomaceous earth (DE) filters. Looking for the perfect filter media? Consider these options:


Sandglass: Filter glass

Sandglass is eco-friendly and provides excellent performance. Filter glass is more effective than sand and can be used in any sand filter. The main advantages are:

  • More efficient
  • Removes 30% more impurities, saving on backwashes and consequently on water, energy and chemical treatment costs.
  • Cleaner
  • It is less sensitive to biological pollution. As the product is heat-treated, the surfaces are smooth and require less chemical treatment to eliminate pollutants.
  • Lower sand weight/volume ratio, requires 20% less material to fill the same space in the filter.
  • It does not degrade, so it has a longer life.
  • It is also suitable for use in public installations.



Zeolytic mineral (> 1-2 mm) obtained from a careful selection of a family of 40 different types of minerals, its degree of purity is equal to 80-85%. Given these characteristics it is therefore recommended for use with normal sand filters, because, unlike normal silica sand, it has a filtering surface area 400% larger,
Under appropriate operating conditions, it reduces filter backwashing by up to 70%.
