Multicyclone Centrifugal Water Filtration

Save up to 7,000 litres of pool water

MultiCyclone from Waterco is a new pre-filtration device that can help you save up to 7,000 litres of water a year in an average pool and reduce filter maintenance. An average sand filter may require approximately 4,000 to 8,000 litres of water a year to maintain it. Sand filters require an occasional backwash and rinse (on average) every month to 2 months, depending on the dirt load of the pool and the size of the filter. Each backwash and rinse equates to an average of approximately 700 litres.


  • Yearly backwash - If you backwash (on average) every month, your pool filter requires approximately 8,400 litres of water a year. 700 litres x 12 months (once a month) = 8,400 litres. If you backwash (on average) every 2nd month, your pool filter requires approximately 4,200 litres of water a year. 700 litres x 6 (once every two months) = 4,200 litres
  • Cuts wasteful backwashing based on the principals of centrifugal water filtration. MultiCyclone collects 80% of the dirt that clogs your filter before it gets there.
  • MultiCyclone drastically reduces filter backwashing and filter cartridge maintenance.
  • Reduce backwash frequency
  • Reduce filter cartridge maintenance
  • If only 20% of the swimming pool dirt load reaches the filter, backwash frequency is reduced by 1/5th.

How it works?

Incoming water enters 16 hydro cyclones tangentially, generating a strong centrifugal effect. The sediment is spun out to the hydro cyclone's wall, and then spirals down down to the sediment chamber. The filtered water migrates towards the centre of the hydro cyclone where the flow reverses and spirals upwards through the outlet. Accumulation of sediment can be visibly monitored through the MultiCylcone’s clear sediment chamber.
The MultiCyclone is easily cleaned by simply opening its purge valve. Only 15 litres of water is discharged to cleanse the MultiCyclone, saving you time and money.

Easy to install

The MultiCyclone is easy to install and fits to most existing pool filtration systems. The MultiCyclone can be easily retrofitted between the pump and existing filter.

Minimal maintenance

There are no moving parts to wear out and replace, no filter media to clean or replace. All backed up by a 2 years manufactures warranty!

It is a simple way to save up to 7,000 litres of water every year.
