Developed by marine biologists, AFM is a direct replacement for sand and crushed glass. It has been independently tested and proven to double the performance of sand filters and outperform all other media on the market


Traditionally, sanitisers have been used to treat and control algae but this is proving to be much less reliable as algae species become more diverse and resistant. This leads us to the need for control agents designed specifically to counter the defence mechanisms algae has developed to protect itself.


A proper balance of chemical factors such as total alkalinity, pH and calcium, is needed for the sanitiser to work correctly, the water to be pleasant to swim in, and to prevent scaling or corrosion of the pool surface and equipment.


Oxidation removes swimmer wastes and destroys organic contaminants in the water. The role of BioGuard Pool Oxidisers, is to keep the pool water sparkling and clear of impurities. Oxidisers also remove chloramines, which are the result of Free Chlorine reacting with nitrogen-based material in the water


Current estimates place salt chlorination in over 75% of all pools in Australia and New Zealand. BioGuard has therefore developed the following range of salt pool products to enhance the operation of salt pools.


Sanitising pool water kills bacteria, which can be harmful to people using the pool. Bacteria is caused by a wide variety of sources such as rain, dust, insects and birds. Sanitiser levels need to be maintained to keep bacteria at bay and also as an aid in controlling algae


The following products are designed to further enhance the swimming experience by: improving swimmer comfort, reducing skin and eye irritation, improving water clarity, enhancing performance of products like sanitisers and oxidisers, and helping to prevent the growth of algae.
