This naturally occurring mineral was formed aeons ago when volcanic ash fell into saltwater lagoons.
Zeolite-30 has many advantages over normal sand-filter sand due to its structure and porosity.
With its open structure Zeolite-30 has a surface area over 1000 times greater than filter sand. Additionally, Zeolite-30 helps strip ammonia from the water by absorption, and removes metals by ionic attraction.
Zeolite-30 lasts much longer than ordinary filter sand
All the benefits for 35 Euros per sack of 25 kilos (collected from our premises - ask us for shipping costs).
Zeolite-30 is the most advanced filter new media to be introduced to the Swimming Pool industry in many years.
Zeolite-30 is not just another Filter Media, it is the ultimate Filter Media.
Unlike sand ,an inert, non-chemically active media, which filters by physical entrapment only, Zeolite-30 works in many ways:
We are proud to bring you these extraordinarily beautiful, state-of-the-art LED Pool Lights:
Flat-mounted Lamp for simple surface mounting - switch operated or remote control.
Our Replacement LED lamps are manufactured to the international standard 'PAR56'.
LED PAR56 lamps are exact, direct replacements for the traditional incandescent swimming pool lamps, which are housed in 'niches' in the pool walls.
Just remove the old lamp and replace it with your new LED PAR56.
You can replace the PAR56 lamps shown above to most pools very quickly, without draining the pool.
Watch an excellent, informative video made by Power Pool Shop: How to change a PAR 56 Lamp
These are perfect for retro-fitting during a pool reform / makeover, or for replacing existing flat-mounted, halogen white lights.
Enjoy the smooth-as-silk sensation of swimming in a saltwater pool - and benefit from ultra-low levels of chlorine in your pool!
Chlorine, the commonest pool sanitation system performs its main task well, but does so at a price.
Anyone who has been in a chlorine-sanitised pool will be familiar with the chemical odour, burning eyes, and possibly the accompanying skin/hair dryness.
As an alternative to the unpleasant side effects of chlorine, many pool owners are now changing to saline (salt water) purification systems or installing them from the outset in a new pool.
Storing chlorine can also be problematic as chlorine can react with other pool chemicals, notably pool acid, resulting in a potential release of chlorine gas, a fire or even an explosion.
Overexposure to Chlorine in a pool can cause dry, itching skin, brittle hair and red eyes. (Largely, these symptoms are caused by 'chloramines' - a group of chlorine compounds that are created as a part of the chlorine combustion process and are a result of too-little chlorine in the pool.)
A excellent way to overcome these potentially uncomfortable experiences is to convert the pool to a salt-water system.
One of the best attributes of this type of pool is that they don't support algae so you'll spend less time dealing with that problem and the pH levels are controlled automatically, so you'll spend less time with that problem as well.
A Chlorine Generator produces gaseous chlorine by electrolysis of the salt water; there is no longer a need for pool-owners to handle potentially harmful chemicals.
While still being very effective, the levels of residual chlorine in the water are ultra-low. There is still a trace of chlorine in a salt pool, but well maintained salt pool systems are much gentler than traditional chlorinated pools.
Converting your traditional pool to a salt water pool is not terribly expensive. Even with the extra expenses, you'll make up for that loss after about two years. For many, this is one of the advantages. Chlorine is very expensive, and by comparison, the amount of salt you'll use during a year is pennies.
A combination system for a pool up to 80 cubic metres costs the pool-owner around €1850 fully installed.
The world-famous Katchakid Pool Safety Net is now available in Europe.
If you do not have a distributor or agent in your area we are pleased to offer our simplified Do-It-Yourself version of the Katchakid.
Fitting a Katchakid can be time consuming and relatively detailed as pool safety nets are custom installed during the installation process. For free-form pools, larger pools and pools with walls, rockeries and waterfalls a professional installation is required, carried out by a trained Katchakid Technician.
The Katchakid Do-It-Yourself kit is only sold for regular shaped pools. The maximum length of a DIY Katchakid is 13 meters (40 feet). The DIY Katchakid requires knowledge of using a power drill and standard tools. Fitting a DIY Katchakid is a physical job and calls for some strength. The Katchakid Pool Safety net uses horizontal tension across the pool so any decking or coping where anchors are to be placed must be sturdy, solid and in good repair.
Alternatively, you could ask your local Pool Company to fit the DIY Katchakid for you.
Imagine your pool in a rectangular box; cover that box with a rectangular mesh net while keeping all mesh running lines as straight and square as possible while custom shaping the net to your pool.
The installation will take approximately 4-6 hours so only begin the installation process when you have plenty of time. Having an assistant to help in the installation will save you a lot of time.
As you will be working with electricity you will also need to watch the weather reports to make sure you choose a day when rain is not forecast.
Installation process of a DIY Katchakid can be divided into the following categories: -
We recommend that you watch the Installation Video or DVD 2 or 3 times before beginning the installation, and read through the Installation Booklet to familiarise yourself with installation procedure.
* We recommend a heavy-duty hammer drill. For best possible results use a core drill with a diamond tipped drill bit. These drills can be rented on a daily basis from large hardware stores or Tool Hire depots. When using a core drill it is useful to use a wooden template to prevent the drill from sliding or skidding. A template can be produced from a 100mm x 100mm piece of wood with a 20mm hole drilled through it. If using a core drill you will require a water pipe (hosepipe).
If you are unsure of any part of the installation process we are here to help. A Katchakid Technician can be reached during office hours; 9am-2pm or on 657081514 anytime.
