ABSTRACT
The control of water quality in swimming pool is accomplished by treatment, including filtration and application of disinfectants. Contamination of pool water cannot be always effectively controlled by normal treatment. Swimming pool sediments were investigated previously and insufficient filtration efficiency for sand filters was noticed. In presented experiments two filtration medium materials were compared: silica sand and recycled glass (cullet). Results show, that despite larger negative zeta potential of cullet particles, filtration efficiency was comparable and recycled glass can be a useful material for optional filtration medium.
