How much water does the Backwash Pod save?

The Backwash Pod's process filters and recycles for future use approx. 100% of backwash water that is currently washed down the drain. There is also a saving on chemicals as the recycled water is already chemically treated.

Do the Backwash Pods have to be installed next to the filtration system?

No, the Pod can be positioned in a scheduled area away from the pool. When installing the Backwash Pod away from the filtration system the performance of the existing pool pump should be taken into consideration.

Is the operation of this Pod simple?

Yes, once installed follow normal filtration methods and with the turn of a valve the system returns clean, filtered and already chemically treated water back into the pool. All easy to follow with instructions supplied.

Can I install the Backwash Pod myself?

Yes, our Backwash Pod's have been designed for professional or self install. All Backwash Pod's are supplied with all relevant parts and fittings that is required. A booklet with installation and operation instructions is also supplied along with a detailed system diagram and parts list. BACKWASH RECYCLERS AUSTRALIA does however recommend you seek professional assistance before self installation.

Have the Backwash Pod's been approved?

We are proud to be one of approx. 300 businesses worldwide to have the approval for the use of the Smart Approved Watermark. A scheme supported by the Australian Government for the future - water smart Australia fund. Approval from SPASA (The Swimming Pool and Spa Association) was also granted with their Climate Care Certified program - The new standard for sustainability in swimming pools.

Can the Backwash Pod's be connected to existing pools?

Yes, all systems can be easily installed as an attachment to already existing sand filtered pools or installed during pool construction.

Does the Backwash Pod need cleaning?

Our unique designed Pod may need cleaning once every 3-6 years. This can be determined by inspecting the water quality test valve which has been installed and positioned in a certain area in the Pod. If inspection uncovers unsatisfactory results there are 3 simple and easy cleaning methods which are explained in the booklet supplied. The unique design of the Backwash Pod makes cleaning a easy process.

Is the returned backwash water clean and safe for swimming?

The recycled water returns to the pool clean, filtered and already chemically treated. Before being returned back to the pool, the backwash water goes through our unique purification process alongside the existing filtration system. In most cases the recycled water is better for your pool than mains or tank water as we mention above it is already chemically treated.

Will I need to install more? eg. pumps etc.

No, our Backwash Pod utilises all existing equipment and returns to the pool clean, filtered and already chemically treated water via the sand filter using the existing pool pump.

I have an existing water tank, can I use this?

No, approvals for the Backwash Pod have been granted using our unique purification process alongside its unique design. The many tests and trials have allowed us to manufacture the Pod's with all appropriate fittings positioned accordingly around the Backwash Pod enabling the backwash swimming pool water to enter the Pod and also be drawn from the Pod returning to the pool clean, filtered and already chemically treated water with ease. Anything other than the custom designed tank does not have appropriate approvals.

I have alot of paving, concrete and garden around my pool. How are the pipes and connections fitted?

The Backwash Pod can be obtained in either a fixed or flexible kit. The flexible kit enables the running of detachable hoses eliminating the need to remove existing works for fixed piping.
