Trap Crypto

SeaKlear announced that SeaKlear PRS is the first EPA-approved clarifier system for trapping cryptosporidium in pool and spa filters. SeaKlear PRS works to enhance filtration down to 0.5 micron, effectively trapping crypto, E. coli, Giardia and algae in the filter. This patented technology works by enhancing a filter's ability to remove particles that are too small to be trapped by the filter alone. SeaKlear PRS works with all pool filter media, including sand, Zeolite, cellulose and cartridges. SeaKlear PRS has received the new WQA Gold Seal approval as well as the NSF 60 certification, allowing recreational water facilities to use the product in Florida and other markets that require these standards.

Combo Deal

Water Tech announced its first automatic pool cleaner/chlorine generator combination machine—the C.O.B.I.A. This cleaner will chlorinate and clean the pool at the same time. The unit will even continue to chlorinate after the machine has run its full cleaning cycle (1.5 hours) until the user's predetermined chlorine level has been reached. The unit uses a compact electrolytic cell to produce chlorine on site, from sodium chloride (salt) present in the pool. The process occurs as pool water passes between a series of titanium plates that make up the cell. The unit is independent from the pool filter and pressure line, and has no hoses or connections.
