Q: Why is the ECOsmarte System Environmentally Friendly?
A: ECOsmarte Systems eliminate chemical backwash, require much less energy than other pool
systems, and require less consumables such as replacement cartridges and chemicals. They
also do not use unnatural pollutants like chlorine or salt to sanitize the pool water.
Q:What is Chemical Backwash and Why is it Harmful?
A: Most pool systems require periodic filter backwashes. This is done by pumping
pool water through the filter to remove sediment and buildup and draining it into a
sewer line or yard. Unfortunately, the drainage often contains hazardous chemicals
like chlorine that can pollute creeks, rivers, ponds, and ground water. This can
harm wildlife and ecosystems.
Q:How Much Energy Does an Ecosmarte System Use?
A:Our systems require only very low amounts of electrical energy- less than $2 per
Q:How is Filter Glass Environmentally Friendly?
A: ECOsmarte Filter Glass is 100% recycled from post-consumer waste glass. It
lasts 3 times longer than silica sand and requires one half less water than Zeolite
and one quarter less than sand for backwash.. This filter glass also contains no
crystalline silica which can cause lung disease when inhaled.
