A BIOLOGICAL POOL FILTRATION SYSTEM

This is a chemical free run system that even after thunderstorms your water remains clear. It is easy to maintain and no chemicals need be added to the system. This biological filtration system is unique in design as it is compact and takes up very little space which benefits those with smaller gardens.

WHAT CUSTOMERS HAVE TO SAY

Since I enjoy the sea and rivers and am involved with Nature in so many ways, a natural water pool is a definite priority for me.

Not only does the water smell and feel so much better than a chlorinated pool, I also don’t have the hassle (or expense) of putting chlorine, acid etc into the pool or doing the required water testing in order to maintain a balance. The pool water is not affected by any weather conditions and from an environmental and health point of view my concerns about chlorine are over!

I’m also very pleased that the pump required is quiet and that the filter tank is small enough to bury and tuck away unobtrusively in my garden.

HOW IT WORKS

1

SYSTEM

INSTALLATION

3

AEROBIC BACTERIA

BUILT UP

Friendly aerobic bacteria builts up, 

reaching a point of volume that will start neutralising the free floating algea.  

Trixie Filtration System is being installed. And addition of chemicals & salts is stopped. 

CRYSTAL CLEAR 

POOL - FREE OF

CHEMICALS

2

WATER

NEUTRALISATION

Water naturalises from all chlorine & salt. The water will turn green due to algea built up.

4

ALGAE

NEUTRALISATION

The aerobic bacteria neutralises the free floating algae. Which takes approx 2-4 months.

Once the system has been installed and as the pool naturalises from all chlorine and salt, the water will go green as the algae builds up. At the same time, the friendly valuable aerobic bacteria will start to build up, reaching a point of volume that will start neutralising the free floating algae, and this balancing process is what turns your pool water crystal clear.

This procedure will take between 2-4 months conditional to the time of the year you install the system. Temperature is a key factor in getting the aerobic bacteria to build up. From here on, Nature in all her brilliance will be working diligently and with ease at keeping your pool healthy and clear.

BENEFITS OF THE TRIXIE BIOLOGICAL POOL FILTRATION SYSTEM

1

100% CHEMICAL

FREE

Absolutely NO chemicals need to be added to your pool water or the system

2

100% PLANT

FREE

3

NO plants are needed as "filters". Which means the pool looks just like a traditional pool.
Clarification, to keep the water crystal clear, happens through a natural process enabled by the Trixie Filtration System.

WATER 

RESERVOIR

In times of drought or generally in dry areas the pool can also be used as a water reservoir and the water may be used for irrigation, showers, dishwashing etc. 

4

SKIN 

FRIENDLY

Since there are NO chemicals used in the system, the pool is safe for all humans & pets experiencing skin conditions. 

5

REUSE OF 

BACKWASH WATER

6

The backwash water can directly be used for irrigation purposes. 

With an additional backwash system the water can even be fed right back into the pool - minimizing top up volumes. 

SOFT WATER

FEEL

Without any chemicals a huge difference in the softness of the water can be felt. The same joyful feeling one experiences in natural sweet water rivers, lakes or ponds. 
 

7

SAVE ON

CHEMICALS

All expenses for chemicals are part of the past. 

8

ENVIRONMENTALLY

FRIENDLY 

9

The chemical free water in the pool, is not harmful to any humans, animals or plants surrounding it. 

The backwash water can be safely released into the environment, used for vegetable irrigation or fed back into the pool (with an additional backwash system).

SAFE PET

DRINKING WATER

Pets often love to drink out of the swimming pool, however also consuming all the chemicals.

With the Trixie Pool Filtration System the water is safe for all your pets and surrounding wildlife to drink. 

Trixie Filtration System is being installed. And addition of chemicals & salts is stopped. 

THE ELEMENTS OF THE TRIXIE POOL FILTRATION SYSTEM

BIO FILTERS

This mimics a natural stream of water which in a natural environment contains plant life, rocks and a natural flow of water. In a natural stream the plant life and rocks host beneficial bacteria which feeds on the free floating algae, and in doing so they keep the stream of water clean and clear.

AERATION PUMP

This pump needs to run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This is supplying the vital oxygen to the beneficial bacteria in the bio filtration tanks. Remembering that the beneficial bacteria are the organisms that are clearing the water.

CIRCULATION PUMP 

This pump also needs to run 24 hours a day. The function of this pump is to take water from the pool and feed it into the bio filters and to return it to the pool via the weir. The beneficial bacteria in the system which are cleaning your pool thrive when there is a constant supply of water and air, hence the reason for running the pumps 24/7.

SAND FILTERS & POOL VACUUM (CREEPY CRAWLY)

These act as the mechanical filters keeping the sides of your pool clear of algae build up.

Please note that the areas that the Creepy is unable to reach (the stairs and sides) will need to frequently be brushed manually to remove the algae build up. Failing to do so will make the stairs slippery for people walking in and out of the pool.

CREEPY CRAWLY

A year’s supply of scour pads have been provided. These pads are to be clipped on to the bottom of your Creepy Crawly. These pads scour the bottom of the pool which prevents it from becoming too slippery.

For future supply, I stock and provide a year’s supply of pads for a current price (2021) of R300.00 excluding transport costs.

GETTING THE TRIXIE POOL SYSTEM STARTED

"GOOD THINGS TAKE TIME"

STOP ADDITION

OF ANY CHEMICALS & SALTS

No chlorine or salts are to be added to your pool as this goes against what we are trying to achieve with the natural organisms balancing the system.

FREQUENTLY 

BACKWASH THE SYSTEM

It is important to constantly back wash your pool as it starts to clear to remove excess algae. A minimum of once a week is advised.

REGULARLY REMOVE DEBRIS & LEAVES

Make sure you remove debris and leaves out of the pool as this will help speed up the process of your pool clearing.

The initial "water clarification process" takes approximately 2-4 months (temperature dependent).

There are no shortcuts in the process of the pool going green and then clearing.

 

It is all about the balance of nature.

MAINTENANCE OF YOUR TRIXIE POOL FILTRATION SYSTEM

TOP UP

Rainwater - use a pre-existing rainwater harvesting system or install an add on to the Trixie System.

2 Municipal water – the amount of chlorine in the municipal water will dissipate quickly

REPLACE CREEPY CRAWLY PADS

The pads on the Creepy Crawly need monthly replacing.

REMOVAL OF 

LEAVES

Leaves will need to be removed from the surface on windy days to prevent the system blocking up

CHECK WEIR

FREQUENTLY

Check your weir frequently to prevent blockages from debris.

BACKWASH

REGULARLY

Sand filter will need weekly backwashing.
