Backwash Recycling System

This product recycles swimming pool backwash water which otherwise goes down the drain. It is easily installed during pool construction or as an attachment to already existing sand filtered systems. The system operates with your existing pool pump and sand filter and enables the backwashed swimming pool water to be drawn from the custom made tank before being returned to the pool clean, filtered and already chemically treated.

The swimming pool industry recommends that sand filtered swimming pools be backwashed for three minutes once every month. With an average pool pump pumping 400 litres per minute that’s 1200 litres of water down the drain. Backwash Recyclers Australia’ backwash process filters and recycles approximately 100% of pool backwash water. Not only does this system save 1200 litres of water with every backwash, it also prevents pool owners from having to find and replace the 1200 litres that is otherwise lost.
