FIBALON® en detail


Fibalon ball
German engineering brings us FIBALON® - Innovating filtering media designed for spa and pool water.

The role of FIBALON® is to replace traditional filtering substance such as sand, a cartridge or other media.

FIBALON® requires no specific installation: it is simple, practical and efficient!

FIBALON® polymer fibres are treated to the core using phosphate glass silver, a powerful biocide that reacts against the colonisation and proliferation of microorganisms.

This procedure has been used for many years in the medical field to react against bacterial spread.


Its structure has a reduced, lightweight volume.
FIBALON® is easily transported and installed, facilitates maintenance operations (replacing filtering media, cleaning...): 350 grammes of FIBALON® is the equivalent to 25 kilos of sand !

FIBALON® fibres are made from a new patented technology, characterised by a cylindrical shape.
The core of the FIBALON® spheres is denser than the surrounding matter.
This procedure coupled with DYFIX® fixating technology that provides:

- an optimisation of the filtering media surface.
- Fine particle filtration (10µm)
- Captures 98,5% of particles
Fibalon new technology

FIBALON® Compact replaces traditional pool cartridge filter


Compatible with the vast majority of above ground pools and spas that use a cartridge filtration system.

Very resistant and economical.

This new filtration media proves to be ecological as it can be recycled, guaranteeing a filtration capacity of up to 8 microns.

One 35 gram packet of FIBALON® compact V 1.400 replaces a 4-inch cartridge.
Fibalon Compact replaces the cartridge filter for above ground pools and spas

Advantages when using FIBALON®


No friction loss


Because of its particular shape and composition, there is no friction loss when using Fibalon. Sand presents a risk of clogging, FIBALON® remains unchanged throughout its utilisation.

Lightweight


Composed of polyester fibres, FIBALON® is very lightweight. Environ 75 kg of sand is needed to recharge a medium sized filter. This quantity can be replaced by 3 bags of FIBALON® weighing just a little over 1kg...

Water and electricity savings


The use of FIBALON® can result in 40 % of energy savings.

Reduction of backwash frequency


A sand filter requires frequent backwash cycles. This procedure has a high energy and water consumption. The use of FIBALON® reduces the frequency of backwash maintenance.

Better filtration without impeding water flow


Using sand as a filtration media creates significant pressure in the filter circuit (around 200mBar). The use of FIBALON® represents only a slight pressure gain: around 20 mbar (measured before and after filter).

FIBALON® reduces wear and tear on annexe parts (Less wear and tear = fewer repairs)

Selectivity


The fibrous composition of FIBALON® offers a capacity of around 10 microns in comparison to sand (20 microns).

Lifespan


FIBALON® enjoys a long lifespan of at least 3-4 years. Coupled with a DYFIX® absorbing system, the shape and structure of FIBALON® conserve filtration properties and efficiency. The spheres are therefore not compressed by water pressure.
Light and compact, FIBALON® can be easily manipulated.

Resistant to frost


FIBALON® is not harmed by frost, resists heat (up to 95°C) and climatic changes.

Energetically efficient


The ratio of energy used when filtering with FIBALON® and energetic consumption of the filter is very performant, in the order of 95%.

Particle capture


Laboratory tests show FIBALON® captures up to 98,5% of particles present in your filter.

Clogging


FIBALON® is made from polyester fibres that resist to an aquatic environment. The ball filter shape remains unaltered and does not clog.

Flocculant no longer required


The high selectivity rate of FIBALON® captures even fine particles (up to 10 microns) avoiding flocculant use.

Chemicaly resistant


The structural composition of FIBALON® (100% polyester) ensures high resistance to chemical products.
Easy to maintain
Easy to recharge
Fibalon


The FIBALON® is compatible with all "Top" filters. If you use a "Side" filter, you need to fit a "diffuser cage" at the top of the filter diffuser. The "cage" avoids the filter diffuser blocking with FIBALON® when using the backwash cycle.

Offers quality and security



FIBALON® is a safe material for pool users. The fibres used in the composition of FIBALON® meet ÖkoTex-Standard® 100, controlling system of raw textile products. The polyester used in FiBALON® contains antimony in the heart of its fibres, but not on surface fibres. During effectuated tests in an acidic solution resulted in 1 kg of fibres contained 1.4 mg of antimony. this level is well below the norm which indicates a maximum of 5g.

The polyester used is sourced from recycled bottles, a high-quality raw material combined with other superior quality secondary materials.

How do I replace the sand from my filter?



1 - Unplug the filter from the power supply

2 - Open the filter following its manufacturer's instructions

3 - Remove the original filtering media from the filter

4 - Fill the filter with FIBALON® without compressing the balls

5 - Close the filter following its manufacturer's instructions

6 - Plug in the pump

Installation is complete
Installation FIBALON®


FIBALON® in situ
FIBALON® replaces your original filtering media. Original equipment remains unchanged : pre-filters, valves...

Easy to use, FIBALON® is fast to put into place, replacing the existing filtering media efficiently and easily.

For sand filters, just fill with FIBALON® to the same level as the sand would be : 350 grammes of FIBALON® is equivalent to 25kg of sand.

The fine particles of sand left after installing FIBALON® (that filters up to 10 microns) do not require a full clean. FIBALON® will capture this residue.
(however, for optimal use clean all washers and O-rings to evacuate remaining residue)

900mm550kg7,7kg or 22 bags

FIBALON® adapts to all types of filters



The fibre of the polymer in a cylindrical shape creates a homogeneous, filtrating layer compatible with all tank types. These balls, greater in density than water, do not float, are not subject to water pressure and keep their original shape.

Warning concerning automatic backwash
Because of the low pressure in tank when using FIBALON®, an automatic backwash valve is unadapted. It is preferable to use a manual backwash cycle.
