Your pools filter is an essential component and helps to keep water clean by removing fine organic material such as dust, hair, dirt and fibres. Removing this material not only keeps your pool sparkling, but also removes a potential food source for algae.
The filter will contain either sand or glass filtration media, which acts much the same way as a natural spring in that the fine particles are trapped in the media as they pass through.
Viron glass media provides much better filtration performance than traditional sand, and will also last up to twice as long.
Pre-filters such as the Hydrospin Cyclonic pre-filter will help reduce back washing requirements by removing larger particles before they reach the filter.
