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
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
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
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.
offers a very low difference of pressure
of 20 Mbar, measured before and after
the filter media.
comparison, a 75kg sand filter will have
a pressure difference of around 200
This leads to
further cost savings by reducing the strain
on your system, resulting in fewer
breakdowns, repairs, and costly spare parts
Reduced water consumption
Reduced energy consumption
Reduced chemical consumption
Reduced wear and tear on the filtration
One 350g bag is equivalent
to 25kg of filter sand.
