This blog outlines the Maytronics Ecoclear® pool equipment range and the important features of each product and what to look for when choosing your swimming pool equipment.
Choosing the correct pool pump is critical for pool water circulation and maintaining crystal clear water. It is important that you invest in a high-quality pump which will take your pool water to be filtered, sanitised, and returned to your pool. An energy efficient design will ensure you save money and reduce any environmental impact, while a whisper quiet pump will allow your family to relax and enjoy the pool. Your pool pump is the heart of your pool’s circulation. Maytronics Ecoclear® pumps are manufactured by Pentair who have incorporated innovative hydraulic engineering, refined over nearly 50 years, to circulate water more efficiently and quietly than competitor pumps. They have also been designed with convenient features to make routine maintenance easy and fast. Ecoclear® pumps offer the latest in breakthrough efficiency and have met all rigorous tests for certification. Ecoclear® single and variable speed pumps are engineered and manufactured to the highest standards of precision and quality for safe, dependable, and long-lasting operation, and with new technology incorporated are whisper quiet.

A pool filter is vital for sparkling clear water. The filter removes unwanted waste, keeping your pool water healthy. Chlorine and chemicals act as pool cleaners, killing bacteria and contaminants in the pool water, with the pool filter removing them. The filter prevents the pool water going cloudy and being filled with unpleasant debris. The Maytronics Ecoclear® range offers a choice of two different filter technologies - Cartridge or Media Filter. The filter you decide on will depend on your pool's size and needs.
By removing impurities such as dirt, leaves, grass, hair, body oils, sunscreen, and even bacteria from the water, our highly efficient pool filters will keep your pool clean, clear, and inviting.
Ecoclear® Cartridge Filter
The Maytronics Ecoclear® Cartridge Filter, combines top-end filter performance with low maintenance. This dependable design uses special filter elements to strip tiny particles from your pool water - particles as small as 8 microns (an average grain of beach sand is 1,000 microns). Plus, cleaning is a breeze. Open the top, remove the cartridge, hose it off and the Cartridge Filter is ready to go again.
All components of the Ecoclear® Cartridge Filter have been designed using Finite Element Modelling for maximum strength at high pressures, ensuring years of life. The Lid and Locking ring have been ergonomically designed making the filter a breeze to use.
Built from highly durable UV resistant plastics.
Lid and locking ring have large handles for easy grip.
2 inlet ports and 2 outlet ports, 90 degrees opposed, allows fitting to any plumbing configuration.
40mm and 50mm barrel unions included.
Stainless steel, oil-filled, pressure gauge.
Internal bypass valve prevents exceedingly high pressures.
5-year tank warranty (T&C’s apply)
Ecoclear® Media Filter
The high-performance Maytronics Ecoclear Media Filter is incredibly simple to operate, easy to maintain and built for long term reliability. Its highly efficient design provides crystal clear and clean water, year after year.
The pool water moves through the media-filled pressure vessel. The media traps particles so small they are undetectable to the naked eye. Over time the dirt accumulates in the gaps between the media particles, causing the pressure in the vessel to rise. This signals to you to backwash the filter. Simply reverse the water flow to expel the dirt.
Pool filter operation doesn’t come any easier than this. The multi-port valve puts all the 6 filter functions right at your fingertips, simply rotate the handle to the desired position and the filter does the rest.
Large capacity 25” and 28” models.
Spun-woven fibreglass construction for exceptional strength, chemical resistance and long life.
UV resistant tank.
Stainless Steel clamp for corrosion resistance and allows 360-degree rotation of multi-port valve to simplify installation. Top diffuser ensures even distribution of water over the top of the media bed.
Top Mount 6-function 2” multi-port valve features a pressure gauge, sight glass and manual air relief for optimum filtration efficiency.
Internal design ensures that water is exposed to maximum sand surface area for superior filtration performance and efficient backwashing.
10 year warranty (T&C’s apply)
For exceptional results Maytronics recommends using premium, Australian Made Ecoclear glass filter media. Ecoclear Filter Media is made from 100% recycled glass. The environmentally friendly filter media lasts up to 3 times longer than traditional silica filter sand, saving you money and giving you a cleaner, healthier pool.
As the peak time in our swimming season, late spring and summer are all about hopping in the pool and having a fun time, but that comes to an end once the temperatures start to drop. Many people close their pools at night time and when temperatures start to dip below 18°C. For most people, ideal pool water is between 28-30°C. This is cool enough to be refreshing but warm enough to be inviting. When it comes to kids, 30°C is often the best temperature for swimming, so as air temp drops, swimming becomes less exciting for kids.
Add to your home’s value and all year-round fun and memories by adding an ecoclear® Heat Pump to warm the water to perfection. These heat pumps are economical to run as they essentially steal heat from the air and transfer it to your pool with incredible efficiency. Unlike a solar pool heater, the Ecoclear® heat pump can reliably heat your pool in rail, hail or shine, meaning you can swim comfortably during any season, at any time and make full use of your swimming pool investment.
Ecoclear® Inverter Heat Pump
The Maytronics Ecoclear® Inverter Heat Pump, is a powerful and efficient heat pump, which automatically heats or cools your pool according to the desired temperature. It adapts to outdoor conditions to ensure optimum bathing comfort while minimising energy consumption. Equipped with full-inverter technology, the Maytronics Ecoclear® Inverter Heat Pump is quiet, yet delivers powerful performance, thanks to the combination of a variable speed compressor and fan motor. Self-diagnostic software continuously monitors the system and adjusts for peak performance.
The Maytronics Ecoclear® Inverter Heat Pump is built for Australian conditions with a tough UV resistant, rust proof thermoplastic case, designed to withstand the elements, in an attractive compact design which blends neatly into any environment.

Other Maytronics Pool Equipment To Consider
pH Drive Series
Adding a Maytronics pH drive will make your life easier. The pH levels in your pool must be balanced for comfortable swimming conditions and maximum sanitiser efficiency. In a new pool, acid must be added daily for maintenance. A Maytronics pH drive will do this for you. It will automatically add the correct, optimum level of acid to your pool, so you don’t need to manually handle pool chemicals. It takes any guesswork out of adding acid to your pool and maintaining your pool's water chemistry. It prevents getting a green pool and makes your pool water balanced, for comfortable swimming any time.
Swimming in a warm, well-maintained pool is one of the best feelings out there. It feels even better knowing that your pool is always clean. Having the right pool supplies is essential to the health and safety of your pool. Choosing high-quality, energy efficient and eco-friendly pool equipment is a good long-term investment and will give you real cost savings.
