Sand filtration, the tried and true pool filtration system, is the least efficient filtration used in swimming pools. Sand filter systems will provide filtration down to approximately 40 microns. Fiber Clear produces two products (Fiber Clear and Fiber Blend) designed to greatly improve sand filtration efficiency.

Fiber Blend, and Fiber Clear in Sand Filtration Systems

Using Fiber Clear as a light top coat filter aid:

Add Fiber Clear directly into the skimmer to provide a top coat to your sand filter. Add only enough Fiber Clear to produce a 1-2 psi increase on your pressure gauge. (Refer to the chart below for dosages). This improves your filter’s ability to capture particulate down to 2 microns. When it is time to backwash, all the Fiber Clear and particulate exit the filter. You should recharge with Fiber Clear for the next filtration cycle.

Using Fiber Blend as a top coat filter aid:

Add Fiber Blend directly into the skimmer (after backwashing Fiber Clear out of your system) to provide a top coat to your sand filter. Add only enough Fiber Blend to produce a 1-2 psi increase on your pressure gauge. (Refer to the chart below for dosages).This improves your filter’s ability to capture particulates down to 2 microns. You may experience faster pressure increases as the filter now captures particles that pass through sand filters. Simply backwash and recharge with Fiber Blend until all the pool water has cycled through the filter. A pool cycle is typically 3 to 5 hours. Fiber Blend contains a natural enzyme that scavenges oils in pool water, (suntan lotions, body oils, and cosmetic residue). Your water clarity will improve dramatically…and the scum line on the tile will be greatly reduced.
