As a 100% natural product, Aqualite™ is an excellent filter media for the treatment of swimming pool water. It is used as a replacement for sand in filters. With Aqualite™, filtration efficiencies close to 10 microns can be achieved without the use of flocculants, compared to the 40-60 microns of sand.
This exceptional filtration performance is due to the structure and shape of Aqualite™, which provides better adhesion to the particles in the pool water than sand.
Aqualite™ can remove ammonia brought by swimmers (organic matter of the nitrogen type: sweat, mucus, urine, etc.) and greatly reduces the presence of chloramines by simply preventing their formation.
The use of Aqualite™ therefore reduces shock treatments, chlorine consumption and reduces filter maintenance. With Aqualite™ , chlorine is no longer blocked by ammonia, it can again act as a disinfectant and anti-alga! No need to overdose on chlorine to fight against microbes, nor shock treatments based on copper or quaternary ammonium to eliminate algae.
The reduction of nitrogenous and organic nutrients in the water allows a better balance to be achieved and thus reduces the overall chemical requirements. This comfort is highly appreciated by swimmers and professionals.
Although Aqualite™ is more expensive than sand, the savings made on a private or public swimming pool can reach up to 46% over 5 years by combining the main expenses related to water treatment (excluding energy) including the purchase of filter material.
Aqualite™ is a solution in accordance with a sustainable development approach. By using it, everyone makes a significant gesture for the protection of the environment.
Aqualite™ is compatible with the main water treatment products: organic chlorine, hypochlorites, salt electrolysis, bromine but not with metal based chemicals (copper, silver, etc)
