Crystal-clear perfection Whirlpool and swimming pool filters

The fundamental concept of pool filters from Ospa is to filter out the maximum possible contaminants through optimal filtration and to then gently disinfect the water. The better a filter removes organic contaminants, the less chemical water disinfection is required.

Maximized filtration result

Swimming pool and whirlpool filters from Ospa guarantee a maximized filtration result through their design and the ingenious internal water distribution. The additional active carbon filter layer chemically binds unwanted substances, catalytically converts them and absorbs released organic materials. The filters are thereby able to reliably and safely remove even odor, taste and dye particles from the water. This also includes combined chlorine, which is responsible for chlorine odor. Thanks to speed-controlled pumps, this even occurs especially energy efficiently. With our filters, you also need significantly less disinfectant to achieve the most natural swimming pool and whirlpool water.

Quality of filter systems

For public pools, such as hotel pools or hospital pools, swimming pool filters according to DIN 19605 or the equivalent are required. Ospa multi-layer filtration systems exceed the requirements of DIN 19643 for water quality, under all tested operating conditions. This is documented by inimitable and comprehensive examinations by the Ruhr District Institute of Hygiene.

The high quality "Hydroanthracite-H" filter material provides for optimal filtration. But it's not just the filter material, particle size, layer height and filtration speed that determine the quality of swimming pool and whirlpool filters, but also the internal hydraulics. Internal hydraulics are perfected with the Ospa diffuser technology. Specialized, ultra-fine water distributors tailored to the respective filter vessel provide for non-vortical impact on the filter surface – the calmer the better the filtration result. The filter material consists of adsorptive Hydroanthracite-H, filter quartz sand and three graded support layers made of filter quartz gravel.

The stable Ospa polyester filter vessels are produced from multi-layered laminate using highly chemically stable resins and have the KSW inspection certificate. As a result of the use of high quality plastics for the diffuser system and bronze and stainless steel for the pressurized water actuated, self-closing Ospa hydro-reversing valves, you are guaranteed the highest degree of corrosion resistance for a long service life and high mechanical durability of the filter systems.

Clean and economical, Ospa vacuum filter for permanent efficiency

Convenient and secure

The vacuum filter technology from Ospa is significantly more energy efficient than other solutions, due to its BlueControl® filter control, which is unique on the market. It also provides for maximum convenience. Thanks to the latest control technology, the vacuum filter systems from Ospa operate fully automatically.


Best filtration – fewer chemicals

The fundamental concept of the swimming pool filter from Ospa: filter out the maximum possible contaminants through optimal filtration. The better a filter removes organic contaminants, the less chemical water disinfection is required. Then the water can be gently disinfected.

Hydroanthracite in the 0.6–1.6 mm particle size group and filter quartz sand in the 0.4–0.8 mm particle size group as well as supporting layers with varying grain size are used as filter layers in Ospa vacuum filters. Properties similar to those of activated carbon are achieved by the specialized Ospa hydroanthracite. As a result, Ospa vacuum filters are able to reduce combined chlorine and other organic chlorine compounds, such as THM and AOX.


Maximum energy efficiency

Resource-conservative energy efficiency works best when all components are ideally coordinated with each other: Ospa provides you with sophisticated system technology for this and the know-how of more than 65 years of research and development. All components of Ospa swimming pool technology are designed for energy-saving operation. In addition to the filter, that also includes the FC-controlled untreated water and filter pumps. With Ospa, a separate backwash pump can be completely eliminated thanks to the innovative BlueControl®.

Backwashing process

How do Ospa vacuum filter systems work?

The fully automatic Ospa multi-layer vacuum filters use the suction filtration method.

The filter vessels are produced in a rectangular design from polypropylene: closed on top, with removable cover, connection for safety overflow to the water reservoir, electronic level monitoring, viewing windows for visual inspection of filter operation and layer separation during filter backwashing, lateral manhole and access opening under the nozzle bottom. Untreated water inlet and sludge water discharge device for DIN-compliant, unpressurized filtration and backwashing operation of the filter system, for uniform vessel flow and uniform distribution of contaminants over the entire filter surface without removal of filter material, at backwashing speeds according to DIN 19643 of 50–55 m/hr. The Ospa multi-layer suction filters have a nozzle bottom with supporting and filter layers arranged on top.

In accordance with DIN 19643, the filtering layers consist of 400 mm quartz sand, in the 0.4–0.8 mm particle size group, and 400 mm hydroanthracite, in the 0.6–1.6 mm particle size group, with properties similar to those of activated carbon. As a result, they are able to reduce combined chlorine and other organic chlorine compounds which are adsorbable on activated carbon, such as THM and AOX. Electronically controlled pneumatic flaps for fully automatic filter backwashing and channel discharge of first filtrate. Closes automatically in case of power outage or compressed air failure.

The Ospa Energy Concept

The Ospa filters of the EcoClean series are characterized by especially low energy consumption – without compromising on filtration performance. The innovative Ospa hydro-control valve optimizes filter flow together with the sophisticated Ospa fine water distribution, preventing energy loss due to friction resistance. Speed-controlled pumps ensure that only just as much power is consumed as is needed at the time.
