FAQs from category Filter Balls:

This is basically possible without any problems. When using sand filter systems, however, pay attention to the proportions: 700g filter balls correspond to 25 kg filter sand. Please also note that you must not backwash with filter balls, as this can cause filter balls to get into the system and cause damage.

Depending on the degree of soiling, Filter Balls should be cleaned with the garden hose approx. every fortnight and dried in the sun.

Do not put Filter Balls in the washing machine or dryer. The Filter Balls become much smaller when wet and can get behind the drum and damage the machine.

No, the filter system may only run when the pool is not in use. On the one hand, there is a risk of injury from the suction nozzle, on the other hand, dirt particles are swirled around during use, which the system cannot filter. 

The filter system should circulate your pool water at least twice a day. Our Comfort 75 filter system, for example, manages approx. 8,000 litres per hour and can therefore completely circulate a pool with 19,000 litres once in just under 2.5 hours.

Important information

The use of flocculants is not recommended as this can cause the filter balls to clump!
