OC-1 Filtration Media®

OC-1 Filtration Media®

Filter Media for indoor or outdoor swimming pools

OC-1 Filtration Media® a trailblazing new product which, through its unique action and performance, is set to revolutionise the wet leisure market.

Embracing the recent advances in pump technology and maximising the benefits of variable speed pumps, the ingenious OC-1 Filtration Media works through settlement, as opposed to the traditional method of entrapment.

The new British manufactured filtration media has some exceptional benefits - by replacing commonly used media (such as sand and glass) with OC-1 Filtration Media it is possible to reduce the head loss in the filtration system; filter with a constant flow (regardless of debris entrapment) and, most remarkably, significantly reduce running energy costs whilst still filtering to the equivalent standard as it can be used with a smaller pump or a variable speed pump or controller.

OC-1’s outstanding key benefits

Reduces energy consumption – OC-1 maintains constant flow rates, even when the media becomes dirty. No downtime is required for heating/salt chlorinators/heat pumps going out on low flow. The constant flow means pumps can be run at lower speeds, thus saving energy.

Huge capacity for debris collection – OC-1 offers over 20 times the capacity of sand or glass.

Reduced requirement for backwashing and a more efficient backwash - Reduces water consumption, chemical usage and heating. There is no need to backwash on start up with new installations.

Lightweight - Can even be shipped inside a filter, easy to handle and super quick and easy to install.

Less Maintenance - lasts longer than sand, reduces pressure in the system, extending the life of equipment.

Filters to all International standards.

Suitable for ALL installations - domestic or commercial, outdoor or indoor, new Installs or existing filters.

Recyclable at end of product life.


OC-1 has been independently tested by Cranfield University (top UK research University).
