Glass Media in Pool Filters

At Pool Doctor, we use Diamond Kleen a sustainable glass media, made from 100% recycled plate glass. Other glass products can leave behind old glue and label residue from bottles. Glass Media keeps your water cleaner for longer due to the ability to filter finer particles. Cleaning as it filters by attracting organic materials, this helps to reduce bacteria together with biofilm improving water clarity. Once trapped these particles will soon oxidise, with the help of chlorine, helping to prevent algae growth.

Low Chemical Content

Due to the superior nature of this media, fewer chemicals are required to keep your pool clean and clear. For instance a reduced amount of chlorine, and as a result a more natural and safer water quality.


Because of the electrically charged particles, glass media in pool filters can save up to 25% less water when backwashing. Cleaner media means a reduced amount of backwashing time and frequency.
