The Filter Foam technology uses Power Disks to provide excellent, chlorine-free water
for swimming pools and spas through filtration rather than the introduction of chemicals
to the water. Chlorine attacks organic matter, and your skin is your body's largest
organ. Chlorine irritates eyes, nose membranes, and lungs and it leaves skin and
hair dry and flaky. Studies have shown that long-term exposure to chlorine can be
harmful to your health. Polymeric biguanide products to chlorine can also cause allergic
reactions and can permeate the pool or spa walls.
Filter Foam Disks use a unique
form of KDF copper-zinc media which has been molded, via a proprietary process, into
a soft disk that looks like a gold sponge. KDF is excellent at removing chlorine
for long periods of time while also acting as a descalant and maintaining a bacteriostatic
environment. KDF meets NSF Standards 42 and 61 and has been tested to remove heavy
metals and inorganics as well as chlorine from water.
Filtration inside the pool
or spa system takes place as the water twists and turns through the Power Disks'
maze of copper-zinc fibers. This tortuous movement increases contact time with the
disks during each pass through the media, as the water is recirculated through the
media over and over.
Filter Foam Disks also safeguard your pool and spa by reducing the need for chlorine
and other chemicals that corrode pipes and equipment. Plus, chemical costs are minimal.
After heavy loads from excess bathers, heavy rain, wind or pets, a one-time shock
treatment, with potassium monopersulfate, or other shocking agents like ozone, hydrogen
peroxide, or chlorine, is usually sufficient to solve the problem. The Power Disks
also help to neutralize slightly acidic water, thereby reducing or eliminating the
use of pH chemicals.
USING THE SPA DISK
Water flowing through the POOL-CUZN or SPA-CUZN is what makes it work. A pool or
spa needs to circulate the water to provide maximum contact with the disk. The best
way to do this is to circulate the water for at least 12 continuous hours each day
at 10 gpm in spas or the normal flow rate for pools 24 hours 7 days a week. Do not
allow suctioning except at the skimmer or wherever the disk is placed. If 12 continuous
hours is not possible, use the pump to circulate the water for two, 2-hour periods
daily AND run the pump at low speed for at least 30 minutes after each spa use.
worry about pH with the disks. They regulate themselves usually between 7.6 and 8
and occasionally from 7.4 to 8.2. Chemicals intended to control pH severely reduce
the disk's efficiency. Most pH parameters for pools and spas are based on using chlorine
and are not relevant when the disk is used.
Likewise, the disks tend to regulate
water's softness. The main reason water is hard is that calcium is present. The POOL-CUZN
and SPA-CUZN do not remove calcium, but they make the water act softer by changing
calcium's cellular morphology so that it cannot adhere to a surface. The calcium
does not deposit scale on surfaces.
If you test the water for softness in a POOL-CUZN
or SPA-CUZN treated pool or spa, however, the test will show any calcium present
because it does not distinguish between calcium's various morphologies.
no health issues with the disk's capacity to make water act softer. Using chemicals
to soften the water, in addition to the disk, will restrict the efficiency and life
of the disk. In normal operating conditions using the disk, no chemicals are needed
The POOL-CUZN for pools comes with a black disk guard designed to
capture sediment. If the guard becomres clogged, it decreases the flow of water through
the disk. Keep the guard clean by peeling it from the disk, washing it in water and
replacing on the top of the disk.
The SPA-CUZN for spas does not have a disk guard
because spas usually have sediment filters to remove debris, soap or oil. Check your
SPA-CUZN periodically to make sure it is not clogged as this would reduce the flow
of water throuhg the disk. If you notice debris or material on the disk, remove the
disk, clean it with water and replace it.

HOW THE POWER DISKS WORK
Filter Foam Power Disks use an all-natural process that works by catalytic action
and the redox (reduction/oxidation) principal of dissimilar metals. As water passes
through the Power Disks, a chemical reaction causes zinc and copper hydroxides to
form in controlled amounts. These controlled releases of copper and zinc oxides are
carried into the filtered water where they provide hostile conditions for growth.
This means cleaner water for bathing, plus reduced time and labor in keeping the
pool or spa clean.
