Zeolite filtration media can be used to replace sand in any sand filter. Zeolite is a high performance media allows the same filtration standards of Diatomaceous Earth (DE) with the convenience of sand.
This is the filter media that we recommend. It filters much finer than glass and sand media. Zeolite is should not be used with ionisers as they remove metals from the water.
A 15kg bag of Zeolite is equivalent in volume to a 20Kg bag of sand.
- Reduces chemical usage and enhances chlorine performance
- reduces pool odour, eye and skin irritation
- Savings in costs of maintaining pool water in optimal condition
- Keeps your pool sparkling clean
- less backwashing
Regeneration of Zeolite
Regeneration is in NO way necessary for the provision of good filtration, only for effective ion exchange.
Zeolite absorbs ammounium ions and over time it will become saturated with these ions and will not be able to absorb any more. The process of regeneration removes absorbed ammounium ions and refreshed the Zeolite. *If you would like the Zeolite to continue to remove ammounium ions the filter needs to be opened once per year, a salt solution added into the filter, left over night and then back washed out. This is not compulsory.
How Often Does Zeolite Need to be Changed?
Filter Manufacturers have always recommended sand changes every 4-6 years. Zeolite is as hard as sand so it will last just as long.

Richard did a great job, filter and pump are better than the original. Thanks.
Urgently needed a new filter and these guys came through for me just before Christmas. Thank you and a great price too.
Excellent service well done! Fast and efficient! Highly recommended this poolshop
I was very impressed with the great service I received to have my Pool Filter replaced, it was done very quickly and professionally.
Have just started using Zeloite for the first time (with a new Astral filter) and is working very well.
James and all the staff are very professional and obliging - from the initial sales enquiry about Zeolite / Astral Filter to the install, all good !
