12 australian water filter Backwash water is pumped into the main settling Tank
13 australian water filter Chlorine Dosing Pump adds the correct amount of Bactericide to prevent algae growth in the settling tank
14 australian water filter The water in the settling tank is left for a predetermined time for the contaminants to settleThe settled water is then drawn off and pumped into the main AquaZEL media filter
15 australian water filter The water then passes through the Ultra Filter Membranes
16 australian water filter The next stage is Activated Carbon Filtration to remove the hidden Contaminants such as Volatile Organic Compounds
17 australian water filter The next stage is to add chlorine to the water to enable a residual to be tested prior to returning the bulk of the Backwash Water to the pool for reuse.
18 australian water filter The Backwash Water is then disinfected using Ultra Violet to ensure absolute bacterial control prior to returning the water to the pool for reuse
19 australian water filter A Reverse Osmosis unit can be provided as an optional extra to allow a side stream of treated water to lower TDS in the final water returned to the pool if required.
