The SuperBead is a filter that combines both mechanical filtration and biological purification in the same unit.

It comes in two sizes, Small and Large and in 2 colors.

It can be used in swimming pools, swimming pools or ponds in Koi. This type of filter is intended for gravity installations, with grid pre-filter or drum filter only. Two essential characteristics differentiate this filter from other bead filters:

- it is a low pressure filter fed only with pumps of the same type (no pool type pumps, the use of pressure pumps is even dangerous).

- the second difference lies in its ease of maintenance: a simple valve to handle is sufficient. At best, an automatic system can take care of this maintenance.

In normal operation, small polypropylene elements (beads - area of ​​1300 m2 / m3) agglomerate in the upper part of the filter. This thick mattress of beads floats and forms a barrier that retains particles from the pond water.

The pump therefore discharges water from the bottom to the top of the filter: water can rise slowly evenly through the beads that act as bacterial supports.

Due to its efficiency, this filter retains in one pass:

> 100% of particles of 50 microns or more

> 60% of the particles whose size is between 20 and 50 microns.

> 50% of particles with a size between 5 and 20 microns.

The Superbead Large is reasonably suited for a basin with a maximum volume of 35 m3: it contains 75 kg of beads (included in delivery). If the use of a pre-filter is not required when the filter is used for an indoor pool, it is recommended.

If conditions do not permit the installation of a grid prefilter in an outdoor pool, the SuperBead Large can only be installed in ponds with a volume of less than 15 m3 which will not be in the immediate vicinity of plantations.

How does the SuperBead work?

In the filtration mode (left diagram), the water enters the filter from below (1), ascends into the filter, and passes through the floating bead mat (3). The water comes out of the filter from the top (5) via the strainer (4) which holds the beads. All particles light enough to be carried away by the water flow are trapped in the bead mattress. The heavier particles are deposited at the bottom of the filter.

To rinse (clean) the filter, center diagram: the water pump is stopped and the filter valve is turned to the "sewer" position. At this time, the pressure in the filter drops and the air valve (3) opens allowing air (4) to enter the filter. This without any air pump or compressor. The beads are then stirred vigorously, thus releasing the particles that flow with the dirty water into the sewer (2).

The beads are retained by the lower strainer (5).

The filter being empty, right diagram, it is enough to return the valve to position filter, and to restart the water pump.


The surface needed to install this type of filter is reduced: the complete filtration (prefilter, SuperBead Large, pump and UV) easily holds on 2 m2.

This filter causes only a very small loss in charge: it can therefore be used with a low energy pump.

Indeed, the internal pressure loss is between 0.01 and 0.05 bar: the filter can be placed below the water level of the basin (or on the surface, in a room) Since it does not require the use of a very powerful pump.

Cleaning a conventional bead filter requires a powerful water pump, blower and handling that may seem complicated for some ....

With the SuperBead, none of this! The rinsing operation lasts only 5 minutes and is not at all messy or binding.

The cleaning is done in a rather gentle way, the biology of the filter remains intact and there is no observed biological problems after several washes of the filter ... it is also a not insignificant advantage! As an option, it is possible to automate this operation: in this case, the manual valve is replaced by an electric valve and a control will shut off the pump and open the valve.

Another advantage is that this filter can work under the water level of the basin: the prefilter is at the same level, you have here a filtration that can easily be made discreet.
