Q & A
The Ultimate Media for sand filters. Zeolite is a naturally occurring mineral formed millions of years ago.Viewed under an electron microscope, the granules reveal void spaces as small as 3 microns. Small particles of clay and silt suspended in water are trapped in the void spaces. Molecular sieving occurs when water contaminants such as ammonia and chloramines are adsorbed and chemically locked onto the zeolite granules.

The combination of physical entrapment of fine particles and molecular sieving of contaminants makes zeolite a superb water filtration media and produces superior water clarity compared to regular sand media. Best of all, Zeobrite® lasts just as long as sand. And when it's finally time for replacement, all natural Zeobrite® can be mixed into your garden soil, planter boxes or spread over your lawn as a natural soil enhancer.

Zeolites are so effective at filtering that is was estimated in 2004 they were in use in over 100,000 pools in the U.S.

Zeobrite® turns any sand filter into a super filter. Using an all-natural zeolite mineral, Zeobrite® provides many valuble advantages over ordinary sand.

Zeobrite® Information for use in Commercial Pool Applications:
Zeolites were first used in the 1970's in the U.S in the filtration of wastewater and radioactive material. In the 1980's they were first used in pools and in the 1990's they were starting to be used in commercial pools.

Today the use of Zeobrite® natural zeolite filtration media for potable water systems is widespread. It is still used in filtration of wastewater and municipal pools, but the effectiveness and cost benefits has made it a popular choice for many hotel and motel pools, amusement park pools as well as large public aquariums.

Zeobrite® Advantages:
  • Improved water clarity
    • Microporous zeolite media contains a large surface area for entrapment of suspended particles down to colloidal size.
    • Angularity of zeolite grains and tapered internal pore spaces allow for removal of suspended solids by bridging, straining, adhesion, adsorption and flocculation.
  • Improved Flow Rates
    • Headloss is decreased compared to silica sand due to more void space through the media.
    • Depth of filtration is achieved with turbid particles being able to load deeper into the media.
    • Zeobrite® can function as a rapid-rate or slow-rate filter media
  • Conservation of Water
    • Backwash to achieve a clean bed is performed rapidly with air sparge and 20 percent bed lift.
    • Once the bed is broken up with surface scour and /or air sparge, Zeobrite® cleans in 5 to 6 minutes with 15 to 18 gpm/ft2 water flow.

Benefits of Using Zeobrite®
  • Provides Superior Water Clarity
  • Lowers Operating Costs
  • Cuts Backwashing up to 50%
  • Reduces Chloramines, Odors and Eye Burning
  • Filters Particles Down to 3 Microns
  • Environmentally Safe, All Natural
  • Reduction in Backwashing Frequency Conserves Make-up Water Consumption
  • Reduced Backwash Water Saves Sewer Costs
  • Lower Make-up Water Requirements Reduce Heating Costs and Chemical Adjustments.
  • Reduced Pressure Drop Through the Filter Saves Circulating Pump Power.
  • Chemical Demand and Need for Superchlorination is Reduced.
  • Labor Costs are Reduced by Additional Time Saved.

Costs Savings With Zeobrite®
It is estimated that for a 150,000 gallon indoor pool using a conventional sand filter that requires backwashing weekly, the total annual savings could exceed $4,000.

If my Hayward pro S244S calls for 300 pounds of sand can I use only a "150 pounds" of ZEOTECH SAND?
Burtd on Jun 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, when you use the Zeobrite, the correct amount to use, is exactly half of the required amount of conventional filter sand.
Is all Zeobrite considered to be #20 sand media?
