Effective filtration of contaminants is essential for clean
and clear pool water. This is even more important for
Ecosmarte pool system. Chlorine in chlorine or
saltwater pools actually kills bacteria and algae by
exploding the cells. The ECOsmarte pool system kills
the same organisms but does not explode them. As a
result, an ECOsmarte pool
depends on excellent filtration.

The filter glass is made from 100% post-consumer
recycled glass. It is crushed, dried, sterilized at 250
degrees Fahrenheit and screened into various sized
fractions for optimum filtration.

The filter glass consists of differently sized fractions of
angular but highly spherical particles. This creates a
more open and permeable packing than sand grains.
Because glass is amorphous and has no grain
boundaries it has more resistance to breakdown
during back wash cycles and less cracks for bacteria
to lodge and resist flushing during backwash. Glass
particles also carry a slight negative charge. This weak
charge has two advantages: fine particles not only
tend to hold on to the glass during filtration but also
more easily release during backwash.
The filter glass is packaged as a Glass Pack which is combination of glass with a smaller amount
of filter-grade pea gravel to prevent leaking of filter glass from tank. Glass pack  requires an
appropriately sized sand filter tank with a multiport valve for backwash. The pool owner or installer
removes the tank cover and exposes the vertical pipe. The old sand is removed with a wet
vacuum. The piping is checked for correct fit and defects. The laterals are covered with pea
gravel and the remainder is filled with fine glass media. The filter is backwashed until clear or put
into service immediately.
