Case Study: What is Zeolite
An innovative and intelligent filter media.
Use it to replace sand in any sand filter.
Made from naturally occurring volcanic rock, zeolite’s structure on a microscopic scale looks like a honeycomb.
As a result, its filtering surface is several times greater than that of a grain of sand.
- Better equivalent diatom filtration,
- Less chlorine required, as there is no longer any need to over dose,
- Maintains a stable pH thanks to zeolite’s buffer effect,
- A decreased loss of charge, enabling you to run a less powerful pump and providing energy savings compared to a traditional sand filter.
- Half as much filter cleaning as with a sand filter
- You only need 75% of the weight of the sand you’d normally use for the filter.
A guideline to how much Zeofine to use according to your filter system:
|Filter flow||Number of bags|
|9 m3/h||1.5 to 2 bags|
|11 m3/h||2 bags|
|14 m3/h||3 bags|
|22 m3/h||6 bags|
Replace 1kg of sand with 750g of Zeofine
Keep the same volume of gravel
Used zeolite can be used as plant fertilizer!
