FILTRATION, MEDIA AND PUMPS

Here at Nigel Lake Swimming Pools we supply and install a broad range of Plant Room Equipment.

This includes Pumps, Filtration Equipment and Filtration Media, we only work alongside and supply equipment from proven leading manufacturers which include:

  • STA-RITE/TRITON
  • LACRON/WATERCO
  • PENTAIR
  • ASTRAL
  • CERTIKIN
  • SPECK BADU
  • HAYWARD
Our selection of Pumps and Filters suit both Domestic and Commercial Sites.

We also supply and install the new ‘Environmentally’ Friendly Pumps such as:

BADU ECO TOUCH PUMP - A new advance in motor technology, this Pump has a ‘patented permanent magnet motor’, designed to allow for a slow rate of filteration, which in turn produces a far better quality of water and a reduction in operating costs.

FILTRATION MEDIA
We supply AFM (Activated Filtration Media) which is used in over 40,000 installations worldwide and also is the only Activated Glass Filtration Media on the market, watch out for imitations, which cause all sorts of problems.

AFM has been in development for the last 20 years with the aim to replace Filter Grade Sand.

AFM is manufactured from a specific type of glass and processed to provide a hydraulically optimized media in terms of particle shape and particle size distribution.
The glass then proceeds through an activation process to increase the surface area by 300 times over crushed glass or sand.

The high surface area is negatively charged (zeta potential) to adsorb organics and small particles, the surface also has permanent metal oxide catalysts that give a high redox potential to make AFM self-sterilizing and also the only Activated Glass Filter Media on the market.

Over time Filteration Sand will bio-fouled and no amount of vigorous back-washing or air scouring will remove the bacterial content. The alginates secreted by that bacteria then glue the sand grains together which leads to channeling of unfiltered water.

Some benefits of Activiated Filtration Media:

AFM give a 50% better performance than Filter Sand and Crushed Glass Media
AFM is Self Sterilising – which means that unlike Filter Sand no channeling can occur.
AFM will reduce turbidity - which allows for crystal clear water.

BE AWARE OF IMITATIONS
AFM has undergone vigorous scientific analysis to ensure that the media really does make a substancial difference.

There are Imitation Medias on the market, do not be drawn into those medias, they are basically manufactured with ‘unrefined waste crushed glass products’, of which is considered a public health risk and attributed to fine particles of glass, biological waste as well as toxic chemicals.

The rough crushing process also results in a wide particle size distribution and poor particle aspect ratio, as a consequence the filters suffer from a lensing effect which increases pressure differential, pumping costs and causes streaming of water straight through the filter hence defeating the object as bacteria is simply flowed through into the Pool again.

We stand by ensuring that all products that we offer will always be safe and proven, which is why we will always recommend Activated Filtration Media as the best Filtration Media.
