Zeolite Filtration: An Advantageous Solution for your In-Ground Pool

31 August 2017

Replacing the sand in your in-ground pool filter isn’t easy. The filter’s not only hard to access, but it also contains a lot of small parts that are easily broken during this delicate operation. An alternative, unknown to many, is available at Val-Morin Signature Pools to make this chore easier, while providing a long list of other related advantages: zeolite. Unlike sand or a traditional filter cartridge, this natural mineral never has to be replaced. Its high porosity enables it to trap even the tiniest suspended particles in your pool—particles as small as three microns. Sand, on the other hand, has a smooth surface that can only filter particles of around 30 or 40 microns at best.

Zeolite: natural and environmentally friendly

When the chlorine in your pool comes into contact with organic matter, such as hair, sweat or dead skin cells, it produces chloramines, which are responsible for the unpleasant smell, eye irritation and skin rashes typically associated with chlorinated pools. With zeolite, chloramine production is drastically diminished. Completely natural, zeolite is also good for the environment, as it cuts the number of backwashes in half. At the same time, water and heat loss are minimized, and the number of chemical products is reduced significantly.

Affordable and ecological, providing clearer, less irritating water—not to mention considerable time savings in maintenance—zeolite offers nothing but advantages. Visit Val-Morin Signature Pools and get this revolutionary filtration product for your pool today!
