Baden Pools uses and recommends high rate sand filters. We prefer the Astral Pools range with filters ranging from 21” to 31”. Sand filters reduce the maintenance requirements and with regular backwashing and quarterly sand changes your sand filter will ensure your pool remains crystal clear.
Your waste line by law is required to be connected to the sewer.
You can use either normal filter sand or glass media which filters the water even more finely to give the water that extra crystal clear look. Glass media requires even less backwashing than sand and only requires changes every 6 years.
Cartridge filters are another alternative to sand filters and often used where the sewer is not available as they do not require a waste line. Whilst cartridge filters filter the water slightly finer than sand, they do require more maintenance in taking the cartridges out to be hosed down on a regular basis to ensure long life.
We stock and sell a large range of pumps including the Astral pump range. We can recommend the right pump for your set up. From solar pumps, filtration pumps, in floor cleaning pumps, water features pumps, spa heat pumps and spa jet pumps. We also stock the latest technology with the variable speed pumps that are whisper quiet and can save you up to $800 per year on your electricity costs.
Apart from indoor pools, 100% of the pools we have built over the last 20 years have been salt chlorinated. They make your life very easy by keeping your pool chlorinated and your water clear year-round. They are fully automatic and we only use the self cleaning units, where the salt cell doesn’t require cleaning. They run on a very low level of salt and the average size pool will only go through approximately $60 -$100 worth of salt per year. Astral Pool make a variety of units for small and large residential pools. The latest salt chlorinators, the Viron EQ or eQuilibrium salt chlorinators also have an acid feeder to control your Ph and a chlorine sensor kit that test for chlorine in the pool, shutting off power to the cell if it’s too high. This is ideal if you have a cover on your pool, and will protect your other equipment from too much chlorine in the pool.
