Here's an overview of the latest and revolutionary filler for swimming pool filtration tanks.
It is impossible to achieve clean and safe water in the pool without mechanical and chemical treatment and filtration. The question is not only in the aesthetic appeal of a pool with clean transparent water. A pool with ineffective water treatment and disinfection system can be dangerous and be a carrier of harmful pathogenic bacteria and microorganisms. The degree of mechanical filtration depends on the properly chosen capacity of the pool filter and the quality of the backfill used. The traditional backfill material is quartz sand. But traditional does not mean the best, because the market now offers an activated filtering material that is superior several times in all respects.
The basic material used is special green glass, as this was the only material found to have the required chemical and physical properties.
Perfect hydraulic flow characteristics are achieved through the proper shaping of sand grains in the form of balls and plates, without splinters. The safety and
quality of the production process is confirmed by ISO certification. Pool equipment and filtration systems work efficiently with this backfill.
Prepared backfill undergoes an activation process during which a mesoporous structure is formed on the surface of each grain of sand. This structure has a large catalytic surface that prevents the formation of biofilm on the top of the filtering material.
The top of one ton of quartz sand or conventional glass fill is 3,000 m2, while the top of one ton of material is more than 1,000,000 m2.
There are several grain sizes of AFM material. Follow the instructions of your sand filter to ensure best quality of filtration.
Today, over 100000 swimming pools in Europe use this material as backfill for filtration systems. We have also tested its effectiveness on dozens of pools of our customers. The main difference in the cost of the AFM and quartz sand is more than compensated by better filtration process, reduced usage of chemicals and lack of need for annual replacement of the backfill and filter maintenance. We strongly recommend you consider this filter backfill when selecting your pool equipment and system.
