Crystal Clear - Crystallite Filter Media
- More effective filtration
- Environmental benefits
- Saves water and energy
- Health benefits
Zodiac Crystals are a type of filtration media that can be used as a direct replacement for sand or zeolite. Commonly referred to as glass media, it has environmental and sanitary benefits over traditional silica/sand media.
Zodiac Crystal comes in two grades: coarse and fine.
The coarse crystals should be placed into the bottom of the filter to ensure no clogging occurs, while the fine crystals are added above allowing the water to circulate through the filter tank for maximum efficiency.
More effective filtration
The combination of coarse and fine crystals provides the best filtration. This glass media is far-less prone to clogging than sand and therefore provides deeper, more effective filtration. The better the flow-rate through your pool’s filter, the more water you circulate over time, which ultimately means a cleaner pool.
Conservative and environmentally-friendly
When compared to regular sand, Zodiac Crystals can save up to 65% on water through more efficient backwashing. This is due to the larger spaces between the particles, hence allowing for a more efficient water-flow. This efficiency will also result in a reduction of electrical power required, hence reducing your pool’s carbon footprint.
The chlorine demand is lower for pools with sand filters using glass media than those with sand. Sand filters are more prone to house potentially harmful varieties of bacteria. Alternatively, the smooth, unique surface of Crystals discourages bacteria from attaching itself to the glass. Ultimately, it provides a healthier and safer pool for you and your family to enjoy.
