A Crystal Clear Solution From Golden Coast
OC-1 Range Expands With New Filter Options Two new filters now complement the OC-1 filtration media that is taking the industry by storm. Introduced last year, OC-1 is stealing a march on traditional media with its outstanding benefits now eclipsing the likes of sand, gravel and glass. The two new filters have been specifically designed to work in perfect harmony with OC-1 media for both domestic and commercial installations. For new installations the OC-1 Filters are the obvious choice. The commercial version can be supplied complete with the OC-1 media already preloaded and allows quicker installation and avoids having to load sand or glass into the tanks on site. The domestic version comes ready for the media to be installed and is easy to ship and quick to install. The OC-1 Filter range covers all applications from small domestic to the largest commercial installations. OC-1 media really excels in the commercial sector. Potential savings in running costs come from the ability to
reduce pump speeds and from reduced backwashing. Add to that the advantage for new installations of the filter arriving with the media already installed and you can see that OC-1 is the obvious choice for the commercial application. OC-1 filtration media is suitable for use on all pools and spas, be they domestic, commercial or hydrotherapy. It is easy to convert an existing sand filter for use with OC-1 with a simple lateral modification and take advantage of its benefits over traditional media such as sand or glass. Certikin’s Commercial Manager, Steve Nelson said: “Since the launch of OC-1 we have had great feedback on the product and have good results with upgrading of existing sand filters and new installations going in every week. The growing popularity of the media is really starting to show.” Certikin International 01993 777200 www.oc-1filtrationmedia.com
Automatic chemical dosing can be a blessing for pool owners and a great profit centre for pool companies, but not all companies can deliver the dedicated, specialist knowledge or resources required. Golden Coast Managing Director Jamie Adams explained: “The appeals of automatic dosing for owners are crystal clear: saving time on testing, avoiding dosage mistakes and ensuring clean, clear water. However, the extra staff, knowledge and training required to meet this growing need can often seem more hassle than it’s worth – despite the potential profits. “There’s been a clear growth in demand for automatic pool dosing systems, but it’s not always been the easiest opportunity for the industry to respond to. And that’s why we developed Crystal.” Crystal provides a simple solution which allows pool companies to offer automatic dosing… without increasing overheads or causing headaches. Crystal’s team of experienced engineers are equipped to handle the whole process: from conducting a free on-site survey to specifying equipment and service requirements right through to delivering a planned maintenance schedule. Jamie concluded: “Crystal has been designed to make it easier for you and for your customers. It really is the best of both worlds.” Golden Coast 01271 378100 www.goldenc.com
