Pool Sand And Hot Tubs

zeolite’s surface area, which is seven or eight times larger than many other granular materials. For instance, an ounce of pool sand has a surface area of 1,000 feet per cubic foot, whereas the same amount of zeolite has a surface area of 9,700,000 feet per cubic foot.

Natural Zeolite - Eco-Friendly Pool Sand And Hot Tubs

The global economy was increased more in the past twenty years. More and more families set up swimming pools and hot tubs at home. Pools and hot tubs are widely used for recreational purposes. It brings more happiness to kids. The aquariums are very popular with people. Upkeep involves combating the universal problem of water purification and many chemical products on the market strive to ensure water remains clean, sanitary, and odorless.

The purification process often involves substantial amounts of dissolved chlorine and over time, high concentrations of the chemical can cause irritation to mucus membranes and eyes. Of all water treatment products on the market, the zeolite sand filter for pool is of particular interest to scientists. Unique absorption and adsorption properties allow it to adsorb ammonia, nitrates, and phosphates, preventing the growth of algae and micro-organisms. 

Use zeolite sand replace to pool sand in water filter 

Currently, adsorption is considered the best water treatment option because of convenience, low cost, ease of operation, and simplicity of design (Bhatnagar & Sillanpaa, 2010). Also, because zeolite sand is used as a pool sand filter and is a natural, non-toxic mineral, it can be applied to pools and hot tubs without causing irritation to the eyes, skin, or mucus membranes. It is better than silica sand in the in-ground pool. 

People have to consider the easy use, particle size, and cheap cost of sand. If the size is not correct, it brings some trouble to change pool sand in some families’ swimming pools. It is possible to lose after using a water pump.when clear water in a fish tank, Users often use a sand filter in Intex & Bestway pools.

After using a water filter and water pump, Lab data indicate that zeolite outperforms conventional filtration media in its adsorption and filtration capabilities. This is attributed to zeolite’s surface area, which is seven or eight times larger than many other granular materials. For instance, an ounce of pool sand has a surface area of 1,000 feet per cubic foot, whereas the same amount of zeolite has a surface area of 9,700,000 feet per cubic foot.

With a huge surface area of about 1,000 times greater than sand media beds, zeolite sand for pool filters can remove the most difficult 2-5 microns contaminants. It means it can filter up to 95% more particles than standard pool sand. It is like the best pure and natural molecular sieve function (binger agent) by huge surface area, so it is good to improve purifies water, traps ammonia, amines, and heavy metals.

Pool Sand Type of water treatment

When we use pool and hot tubs, we have to face a problem to use pool filter sand. which one is suitable for your pool? Common types of sands are designed to effectively trap dirt and debris to clean water, including zeolite sand and silica sand.

Silica pool filter sand is the most commonly used type. It’s inexpensive, easy to find, and can filter particles down to 20 microns, which is about 800 mesh size.   Zeolite pool filter sand is made from volcanic rock minerals and can filter debris as small as 8 microns, giving it a slight edge over silica pool filter sand. However, zeolite as molecular sieve is also capable of binding with chloramines ions to help maintain the chlorine balance in the pool water. it is the best option for removing very small particles from the pool water.
 It can capture ion as small as 5 to 10 microns in size, making it a good option for pools that have recurring algae problems.

We are working hard to be back in stock as soon as possible. Zeolite Sand is best chosen for your powerful above-ground pool filtration. It works best with a replacement filtration system of Intex and Bestway pools.


Zeolite Mesh Size has been designed with an easy-to-install pool sand filter system, and it avoids blocking to debris strainer basket The ultra-quiet pool filter system features a motor with a high flow rate and pump, Zeolite effectively purifies water and creates maximum energy efficiency.


Our zeolite sand for water filter of above-ground pools has been optimal cleaning efficiency and works with an easy-to-operate filter, backwash, rinse, and winterize. It usually requires 50 pounds of medium-grade pool-filtering sand.


Based on customer feedback we have made improvements to our mesh size of the filter system including 1-3mm,3-5mm,5-8mm,1-3cm, and 3-5cm to fit most Intex & Bestway pools. It is an easy replacement.

Benefits of UZ-Min Pools and Hot Tubs (Based Clinoptilolite Zeolite)

  • Zeolite sand filters out 2-5 microns contaminants.
  • Remove ammonium ions responsible for chloramine formation.
  • Soft pool water by removal of metal ions, Improves pool water clarity
  • Removes and kills bacteria by ion exchange of all-natural molecular sieving structure
  • Use 50 percent less our zeolite sand than you would silica sand.
  • Keep Lasts longer function than sand
  • All-natural and environmentally friendly, reduce red eyes, itchy skin, and that chlorine smell.

More and more researches are shown the best result from residential and commercial uses. It brings filtration at depth and higher flow rates to pool filters. It replaces as often as sand, Like the adsorption applications of algae and green dust in pools. It also was passed by ANSI/NSF Standards. It is so safe (100% natural zeolite rock).

Install Zeolite Water Filter Media

Following four simple installation steps will lead to years of crystal clear water.

Four Easy Steps:

  • Remove sand and make needed repairs
  • Fill filter halfway with water
  • Pour the zeolite sand into the filter
  • Backwash until clear water comes from the filter.

The lower density between zeolite rock and sand is the difference, so you will use about half as much UZ-Min zeolite granules by weight as regular filter sand. It is a 100% natural zeolite replacement for a sand filter that gives DE-like clarity and controls chloramine formation.

Crystal Clear Water

High Surface Area

  • Crystal Clear Water–DE Like Clarity

  • Saves Water–Fewer Backwashes

Ca Ion Exchange

  • Purifies Water
  • Traps Ammonia, Amines and Heavy Metals


  • Residential and Commercial Uses
  • Passes NSF/ANSI Standards

Long Lasting

  • Replace as often as Sand
