Certikin OC-1 Domestic Filters




The Certikin OC-1 domestic filters offer unparalleled eco-efficient pool filtration. Unlike traditional methods that use entrapment, OC-1 works through settlement which means that the debris settles within the cells of OC-1 throughout the entire bed rather than being trapped on top of the media.

This British-manufactured filtration media has some exceptional benefits – by replacing commonly used media (such as sand and glass) with OC-1 it is possible to reduce the head loss in the filtration system and filter with a constant flow regardless of debris retention.

The Certikin OC-1 domestic filter has either a side mount or top mount multi-port valve. Each filter purchased will also come with a pressure gauge and OC-1 filter media, ready for use.

Please note: OC-1 Filtration Media cannot be used with multifunctional tablets

OC-1 Filter Media Benefits:

  • Out performs traditional filter media
  • Increased debris retention
  • Decreased head loss
  • Potential energy savings
  • Lightweight
  • Suitable for all applications
  • Independently tested by the IFTS

High-quality filtration
OC-1 has been proven to efficiently reduce the turbidity of pool water and retain particulate without increasing the pressure within the filter or reducing the flow. The debris capacity of OC-1 is more than 20 times that of sand or glass. OC-1 removes 81% of 10 micron particles in a single pass and can even remove particles as small as one micron without flocculation or coagulation.

Unlike sand, gravel and glass, OC-1 is lightweight and easy to handle and transport. This is a huge advantage in terms of manual handling requirements, ease of installation and logistics. OC-1 is supplied in 50-litre bags that each weigh approximately 9kg and have the equivalent volume of three 25kg bags of sand.

Reduces pool running costs
OC-1 can reduce energy usage and water consumption. The open cell formation makes it possible to achieve a greater flow of water through the filter. In many cases this means that pump speeds can be reduced by around 20%, without compromising the original flow, producing impressive energy savings. Alternatively, on new installations, a smaller pump can be specified to produce the same flow – saving running costs and initial outlay. Due to its constant flow rate and huge debris capacity, OC-1 can reduce backwashing frequency and water consumption.

New Installations
For new installations, the Certikin OC-1 domestic filter is the obvious choice. Supplied complete with the OC-1 Media it is specially designed to work in perfect harmony with OC-1 and compliment the amazing advantages OC-1 can provide. The OC-1 Filter range covers all applications from small domestic to the largest commercial installations.
