Filters

Properly sized commercial pool filters are critical to the health and welfare of the animals that use the water as well as the efficient functioning of pool equipment.

Every body of water is unique in its dimensions, shape and the species it provides an environment for – it may also be subject to seasonal bio-load fluctuations.

Coupling our in depth working knowledge of the species, their  behaviour and natural requirements, with hydraulic engineering expertise we are able to run a series of calculations that ensure that you make the most cost effective choice for you animals environment.

We offer a huge range of filters and would advise contacting us on 0330 311 2575 to ensure the correct choice is made.
