ZELBRITE POOL FILTER MEDIA
FEATURES & BENEFITS
HIGH PERFORMANCE ZELBRITE FILTER MEDIA
Zelbrite is an advanced filtration media that out performs the traditional pool filtration mediums of sand and Diatomaceous Earth (DE).
Higher dirt holding capacity and the ability to remove finer particles than traditional sand and DE filters provides cleaner pool water that is visibly brighter and clearer and saves water as backwashing requirements are reduced.
Zelbrite performs chemical ion exchange to absorb ammonia making the pool water safer and more appealing.
Hard grains of Zelbrite ensure that it remains effective within the filter for over five years.
No modifications are required to standard sand filters to accept Zelbrite therefore can be used as an upgrade when the sand is replaced.
Zelbrite can be simply recharged by your local pool shop to keep it performing at it’s best.
Natural “buffering” characteristics of Zelbrite and the resulting lower use of disinfectants allows a lower use of chemicals of pH control.
Zelbrite lowers the output required from salt water chlorinators extending the cell plate life.
