Flocculation - removal of turbidity using flocculating agents
Some turbidity occurs in all swimming pools, whatever the type. This is due to pieces of dirt suspended in the water. These tiny particles have a natural negative charge so they repel each other and do not sink to the bottom. Most filters are simply not able to filter these tiny, charged particles out of the water. The result: The water becomes cloudy.
Flocculation agents make it possible to filter out suspended particles
Flocculation makes it possible to suspend these particles. The flakes created in front of the filter envelope these finely distributed dirt particles. The flakes are then big enough to be held back by the sand filter.
And these dirt particles then disappear the next time it is given a backwash.
Good flocculation also reinforces the capacity of the disinfectant used. The water quality is generally improved so that it is fun to bathe in the pool. This is particularly noticeable with care programmes that use active oxygen. Result: crystal-clear water.
The use of flocculants is only recommended for sand filters. For cartridge filters we recommend our concentrated turbidity remover.
