    FilterBalls Blὒ10™ and FilterBalls Minis™ are revolutionary new products used in place of sand in your pool sand filter. Super light material takes the work out of sand replacement and is lower in cost than premium filter sand. FilterBalls require less power to turn your water and provide superior water quality.  FilterBalls hold more contaminants, eliminate flocking, and require less backwashing - so you save money on power, chemicals and wasted water!   Lasts for many years and requires no special cleaners. You simply recycle your FilterBalls during disposal. One pound of FilterBalls replaces 100 pounds of sand.

    Use Blὒ10 for inground pools with sand filter housings rated above 250 pounds of sand or more.  Adherence to housing manufacturers maximum flow and pressure ratings are important for proper performance of  your filter system.

    Use Minis for above ground pools using 250 pounds or less.  Adherence to housing manufacturers maximum flow and pressure ratings are important for proper performance of  your filter system.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from 20+ years servicing Pools As a pool professional with more than 20 years experience, I admit I had my doubts about this latest replacement for sand. All of us that work with sand hate it, because its heavy, messy and takes a long time to change it out. But sand works and it's cheap. Over the years several have tried to develop a better alternative, have now installed this product in several pools over the last 2years and it works very well. I would warn users about use in above ground pools as they are cheap and use cheap housings and big pumps to overcome the poor designs. I tend to stay away from the smaller above ground pools for that reason.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much easier than sand I haven't encountered any problems by switching out my sand with the filter balls. They are a lot easier to manage (taking the sand out of the filter was a real pain) and it's too early to tell if it filters better than sand but it definitely filters as good as sand with better flow rates on my pump. They are going to be a heck of a lot easier to replace with news ones than the sand would be too. More affordable than sand, too.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior results! We installed the FilterBalls this week after reading the In The Swim Blog review. My water has never cleared so quickly- you cannot see the water! I'm also getting more flow through my system, and more power in the vacuum. Began reducing my pump time to save money and will report back on results.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than sand I bought these because I needed to change my sand in my filter. So much easier to use and definitely less messy.

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product gums up Bought three bags to replace the sand in my filter, the pool water never cleared up. Replaced with sand and within 24 hrs the pool was crystal clear.

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from Complete waste of time and money I purchased this thinking that it might save me from disposing of sand every year. Purchased 3 bags at the beginning of the season. Unfortunately after 6 weeks with it, the pool would never clear up. I wasted countless bottles of clarifier and ran my pump for about 1000 hours straight for nothing. This week, I gave up and dumped it and replaced it with sand. Within 4 days, the pool totally cleared. Please don't make the same mistake that I did. Stay away from this garbage.
