    FilterBalls Blü10™ Advanced Filter Media is a revolutionary new product that can be used in place of sand or Zeolite in your swimming pool filter. The superlight material takes all the hard work out of sand replacement and outperforms it by removing particles below 10 microns (# 20 Sand filters down to 20 microns). Moreover, FilterBalls Blü10™ hold more contaminants, eliminate floccing, and require less backwashing - so you save money on chemicals and wasted water!
    Use FilterBalls Minis for filters that would normally require 150 pounds of sand or less. The mini sized balls settle and are sized to pack evenly in smaller tanks filling all voids, providing maximum filtration performance! read more

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really love it but.... I bought these last year and am very impressed by them however I do get a lot of fibers from the balls in the bottom of my pool. It requires almost daily cleaning. What can be done about this?

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I was at local pool supplier n found a pamphlet on this product. He explained that it was a new product. It's better than sand n cheaper in price than glass. As far as I am concerned my pool has never been so crystal clear. Thumbs up ! David

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what it's promoted to be! Bought this and used it for 2 months, pool never cleared up, stayed cloudy. Replaced with sand and pool was crystal clear in two days! The filterballs trap the trash from the pool, but holds it so good I don't think it will backwash out. The filterballs were nasty when i pilled them out.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORKS! I have an above ground pool and have been struggling with dirty water and algae problems. I purchases the minis as my fiter only uses about 25lbs of sand. The packaging on minis says it is equal to 50lbs of sand and I don't agree with that, I filled my filter to the maximum line, gently pressing filterball minis down and I ended up using them all! Well, now for the results! WOW, algae and dirty sediment gone in 3 days, the pool water is clearer than it has been in the year I have owned the pool! Try these, they do work and no more sand to mess with! So far a great product, will update this post later if I have any problems!

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Far So Good I'm reserving a perfect score because I just started the pool up today and it's a little cloudy. We'll see how it does after filtration and settling overnight. They're like packing peanuts, so very lightweight and I just put them in and backwashed. The website said that the minis that I got would be for filters that take less than 50 lbs. of sand, which mine does, but then it also indicated that they should be used in conjunction with the Blu filter media, so I'm a little put off by that. I only have the minis, and I'm not sure that will be sufficient.

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Happy I bought these last year and every time I backwash or rinse, they wash out on the ground or out in the pool! I went to a pleated filter!!! I do not recommend them for the money!!!

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work for me. I had high hopes for this, but it never worked out after opening my pool getting all cleaned out it was looking good, then started to run the filter and it just got cloudy ran it for 5 days hoping it would clear up it, never happened so I shut it down, within a 2 days it had cleared up, started it back up and right back to cloudy. Guess I'm going back to the sand, just sick I'm out the money just to try it out
