Like most pool owners around the country, Swimart is constantly looking for ways to save time, water and energy when it comes to selecting the right pool equipment. Fortunately, Australia’s Waterco has made it easy by developing an entire range of eco-friendly products for every pool owner.
The EnviroPro range includes pumps, filters, filter media, solar panels and pool lighting, giving you numerous options and ways to reduce the environmental impact of your pool. We’re going to shine the light on one particular product, which not only saves thousands of litres of water per year but also requires less maintenance. Who doesn’t like the sound of that?!
The MultiCyclone pre-filtration device
MultiCyclone is designed with no moving parts and no filter media to clean or replace. The Multicyclone polishes the water improving the water quality and the compact installation means that the equipment area can be kept to a minimum, which is great news if you live on a small suburban block or your pool is located close to your neighbour’s home.
Two key benefits include:
Minimise backwash frequency – installing a MultiCyclone as a pre-filter to a media filter can reduce its backwash frequency down to once per year, resulting in a saving of up to 7,000 litres of water per year for an average domestic sized swimming pool
Minimise cartridge cleaning and replacement – installing a MultiCyclone as a pre-filter to a cartridge filter can reduce filter cartridge cleaning and replacement to once per swimming season and even up to once per year, depending on the size of the cartridge filter
Waterco first introduced this innovative technology in 2007 and it has since won a number of awards and industry accolades. The MultiCyclone Plus takes the patented technology a huge leap forward.
Centrifugal water filtration
The MultiCyclone works on the basis of centrifugal water filtration, which basically means to move or be directed away from the centre. As we said earlier, there are no moving parts to wear and tear, and no filter media to clean or replace.
We’ll try and keep the tech talk to a minimum, so bear with us while we explain how it works:
- Incoming water enters the MultiCyclone, generating a strong centrifugal effect
- The sediment is spun out towards the wall, and then spirals down to the sediment chamber*
- The filtered water migrates towards the centre of the MultiCyclone where the flow reverses and spirals upwards through the outlet
- Accumulation of sediment can be visibly monitored through the MultiCyclone’s clear sediment chamber
You can create an environmentally-friendly pool with our EnviroPro range, or visit your local Swimart store to learn more about the MultiCyclone pre-filtration device. You can also call us on 1300 991 104.
*Note: The MultiCyclone is designed to filter sediment that is heavier than water, floating debris cannot be filtered out by centrifugal filtration.
