How it works

Save money, reduce backwashing and chemicals usage and provide a fresher, natural feel for your pool that your bathers will love – with one simple addition   🏊

Reduced chemical usage

Approx. 25% reduction in chemicals (or even more), while improving bather safety and enjoyment. Less chemicals means significant cost savings and a more natural pool environment for bathers with softer water – with a more stable pH.

Less backwashing time

Resulting in an annual saving approximately the volume held by your pool, or even greater. With water becoming an expensive commodity, it’s an obligation to reduce water usage as much as possible.

Improved water quality

Bathers find the pool more enjoyable to swim in, with no more ‘red eyes’ or a dry feeling while bathing. With FilterControl, your bathers will enjoy a fresher, cleaner pool.

Fights waterborne bacteria
and viruses

FilterControl’s unique treatment system inhibits biofilm growth, minimising bacterial and virus outbreaks – including Cryptosporidium and Pseudomonas Aeruginosa.

Improves and protects
existing plant

Improves your existing filtration media, lower your dosage requirements and reduce workload on existing plant equipment – reducing stress and extending equipment life.

FilterControl’s powerful sweeping sound technology inhibits biofilm growth within your pool filtration system. Biofilm acts as a glue within your filtration media and pipework, providing a breeding ground for bacteria and reducing the efficiency of your filter system. Left unchecked, this biofilm allows bacterial to grow and spread exponentially. Scientifically tested by Griffith University in Queensland, FilterControl is a preventative measure – proven to inhibit this growth, which results in a reduction in chemical usage, backwashing time and a cleaner, safer pool for your bathers.

How does FilterControl minimise bacterial outbreaks?2020-02-23T11:23:40+00:00

FilterControl minimises outbreaks by inhibiting biofilm within your filtration system. This biofilm acts like a glue within your pipework, acting as a breeding ground for bacterial outbreaks. Once biofilm takes hold, bacterial growth is exponential. The unique treatment solution offered by FilterControl inhibits this growth – meaning bacterial counts are significantly reduced.

Yes – FilterControl works on pools of all sizes. As part of our onsite assessment, our team will advise the best system to suit your requirements.
