Zelbrite is an advanced filtration media that out-performs the traditional pool filtration media of sand and Diatomaceous Earth (DE). Zelbrite upgrades standard sand filters into high performance water purifiers that are the lowest maintenance and easiest to use.
No modifications are required to standard sand filters to accept Zelbrite so it can be used as an upgrade when sand is replaced and it can be simply recharged by your local Pump House store to keep it performing at its best.
Other features of the Zelbrite include higher dirt holding capacity and the ability to remove finer particles than traditional sand and DE filters providing cleaner pool water that is visibly brighter and clearer, and saves water as backwashing requirements are reduced.
Zelbrite performs chemical ion exchange to absorb ammonia making your pool water safer and more appealing, and hard grains of Zelbrite ensure that it remains effective within the filter for over 5 years. Zelbrite also lowers the output required from salt water chlorinators extending the cell plate life.
