Waterco’s Micron Eco (S602 ECO) granular filter has been created with energy efficiency and water conservation firmly in mind. The Micron Eco is a key member of the EnviroPro suite of products.

A major feature of the Micron ECO is its unique ‘fish tail’ laterals, which ensure better water flow distribution through the filter’s media bed, enhancing its filtration and backwashing efficiency.

The effective coverage of the lateral system virtually eliminates any dead areas of flow and provides an even up-flow through the filter bed during backwashing. The Micron ECO’s backwashing time is reduced significantly, leading to savings of backwash water of up to 30%.

The Micron ECO is designed to work well with low-powered and energy-efficient pumps and can be backwashed at lower flow rates than standard filters. In addition, Waterco has incorporated a 50 mm multiport valve instead of the standard 40 mm, which allows better water flow with fewer restrictions.

The main aim of these pumps is to operate at the lowest motor speed settings to provide the minimum required flow for a swimming pool - without affecting the pool’s water quality - to maximise its energy savings.

The even flow produced by the lateral system facilitates the possibility of backwashing the filter with half the backwash flow rate of a conventional sand filter, allowing the option of a lower-powered pump for both the filtration flow and backwash flow. A slow flow rate has the added benefit of enhancing a pool filter’s filtration efficiency and improving the clarity of swimming pool water.

The Micron ECO is manufactured with an inner shell of fibreglass reinforced polyester resin, which is strengthened with multiple layers of continuous strands of fibreglass filaments.
