Pool Filter Sand Change

The sand based water filter for your pool is the low effort option for water filtering. Needing little attention aside from the periodic (6 to 8 weeks) backwash and rinse with replacement of the sand every 5 to 7 years for most home pools. Because of the long time between sand replacement the common reasons prompting people to replace their sand is the following symptoms usually related to blockage – increasing pressure in the filter.

  • Slower water flow – may cause your pool cleaner to malfunction
  • Bulging of the sand filter itself which may lead to cracking and needing replacement of the entire unit.

* Depending on a pressure reading on your sand filter alone may not be enough, as ageing filters often have inaccurate pressure gauges due to wear and tear.

We offer free use of a “Slurpee” tool when you purchase sand from us that allows the sand to be sucked out of your filter using flow of water from your garden hose, making a sand change an afternoon job of a couple hours for most people should you choose to perform it yourself.

If you have never done a sand change before we offer free advice and a printed guide when you visit us in store or when in doubt doing the sand replacement at home simply call us for answers.

Energy Saving Pumps

Pools need many things to keep them fit for swimming.

Cost factor comes into play and by far running your Pool Pump is the most expensive. Everybody has noticed ever increasing cost in electricity and now energy efficiency is more important than ever.

The choice of Pump now is the Viron range from Hurlcon using an optimised water pump assembly, variable pump speed settings and a DC Motor – so not only can you save money from a pump that moves more water per kilowatt hour, but you can also have your pump working at a rate to suit your pools needs and adjust according to pool usage.

One customer explained how his kilowatt consumption went down from 39c per hour, to 19c per hour. The Hurlcon Viron 300 saves between $500 to $1000 per year in electricity costs – its the pump that more than pays for itself!
