Cost Saving Explained with the use of Fibalon

   HOME/FIBALON/ COST SAVING

 Our calculations are based on an average Lebanese Swimming Pool of 45m3 (45,000 litres), with a filtration capacity of 15m3/h, and a standard dirt grade.

 

  FIBALON AND FRESH WATER CONSUMPTION


Example 1 - Fresh Water Consumption running conventional Filter Sand

  • One backwashing cycle per week lasting four minutes will use approximately 1000 litres of plain water per cycle.
  • On a season of seven months (28 weeks), you will consume 28m3 of fresh water, which is equal to 133 litres per day.

Example 2 - Fresh Water Consumption running FIBALON

  • As little as two backwashing cycles per season lasting four minutes per season will consume 2x 1000 litres of fresh water
  • So over the same seven month season (28 weeks), you will consume as little as 2m3 of fresh water, which is equal to 9.5 litres per day.
 

  WATER CONSUMPTION AND COST SAVINGS


1m3 of fresh water, including waste water disposal, costs approximately 3.50 (based on Southern Water Services Ltd, 2014 prices).  

  • Based on four backwashes per month, at 3.50 per backwash, that is a water cost of 14.00 per month.
  • On an indoor Swimming Pool used all year round, that could mean a water cost from backwashing alone of 170.00 per year.
  • Consideration must be given also to the cost of re-heating that fresh water, and chemically treating the water.

In addition to the cost savings through reduced water consumption, FIBALON also offers significant cost savings through reduced filtartion running times, and energy consumption.  FIBALON can deliver a filtration flow rate of up to 50m3/h, flow rates with conventional sand can vary from 15m3/h up to 30m3/h.

Because of this improved flow, you should see an improved quality filtration in a reduced period of time.  This will result in you being able to run your filtration system for shorter periods without any drop in quality.

 

  REDUCED WEAR AND TEAR


Another aspect through which FIBALON  delivers a cost saving, is by reducing the strain on your filtration system.

  • FIBALON offers a very low difference of pressure of 20 Mbar, measured before and after the filter media.  
  • In comparison, a 75kg sand filter will have a pressure difference of around 200 Mbar.

This leads to further cost savings by reducing the strain on your system, resulting in fewer breakdowns, repairs, and costly spare parts being required.

Reduced water consumption
Reduced energy consumption
Reduced chemical consumption
Reduced wear and tear on the filtration system
 

 

QUANTITY REQUIRED
One 350g bag is equivalent to 25kg of filter sand.
