Plastica Launch New Relax Filter Cartridges Adding to their successful water treatment products range, Plastica have developed their own range of filter cartridges to rival the quality and value expected from the leading brands. The Pod System is compatible with 20g tablets and is available to be used with the most popular cartridges that feature either a removable lid or built-in shelf to hold the dosing pod. The lid is part of a compatible cartridge and the Dosing Pod is sold separately. The new inline Dosing Pod system is compliant with Section 76 of HSG282 regulations regarding inline dosing. HSG282 is a regulation put in place to control infectious agents, including Legionella, potentially in spa and pool systems. Hot tubs and pool systems can be a recognised source of diseases caused by infectious agents including the organism that causes legionnaires’ disease. In the past there have been a number of outbreaks linked to spa pools in leisure centres, hotels and holiday lets. This is why the HSG282 regulation was put in place in 2017 to keep customers safe from potentially harmful diseases. The Relax Filter Cartridges are easy to install, maintain and don’t need to be removed while the pool or hot tub is in use. The Pod System helps keep the pool or hot tub regularly dosed and chemicals away from pool or spa users. Plastica also have their own Relax manufactured filter cartridges.
