FILTRATION

Filtration Solutions For Every Setting Some of the most important products that lie at the heart of any efficient water cleansing system are those which are associated with filtration. With recent innovations leading to improved performance and a reduction in water use, filters and filter media are now the first place to start looking when it comes to combining effective water management and making significant cost savings. This issue, we take a closer look at a wide range of available filtration products that are on offer for a variety of applications By Jon Wadeson

ith a wide variety of conditions that filtration products have to operate within, it should come as no surprise that there is a vast list of options to choose from for providing clear water within pool and spa settings. Whether it’s for the largest of commercial swimming pools or for a modest two-seater domestic hot tub, the importance of quality water filtration is the same for both owners and users alike. Playing a critical role within any pool and spa setup, filtration products are normally out of sight, working away behind the scenes. They can often be viewed as somewhat low tech or uninspiring products too, but make no mistake, there’s plenty of science, research and technology and that has gone into producing what can often appear to be quite straightforward and functional filtration products. Thanks to advances made in recent years, some products have become more user-friendly too, others more flexible in their use, and some are adding green credentials to their list of benefits by helping to reduce the amount of water used. A lot of these factors lead directly or sometimes indirectly to lower operating costs – so the developments are very much welcomed by owners and operators alike. With plenty of options already on the market, combined with an expanding range of products and technologies, it can often be hard to stay on top of what’s on offer, so this issue we highlight just some of the latest filtration options.

New Zealand company Magnum Filters has grown from its origins in 1982 and through a combination of exceptional product quality and innovative processes, has become a market leader in Australasia. The company manufactures an extensive range of spa and swimming pool filter cartridges and the products produced include their own brand of Magnum filters as well as co-branded and custom branded products for many companies around the world. Here in the UK, Wales-based Spaeuro distribute supplies for both the British and European markets. Over recent years, cartridge filtration for swimming pools has become more and more common especially in certain markets such as the USA and Australia. One of the main reasons for this has been water conservation, and as cartridges cannot be backwashed and have to be cleaned with a hose, far less water is used than in a normal backwash process. Standard Magnum Filter cartridges Produced in New Zealand, standard Magnum Filter cartridges use Reemay fabric for the filtering media, which has a nominal micron rating around 30 microns
