♻ Recycled Glass Filter Media

  • Some glass filtration media on the marketplace are produced from virgin glass - increasing the need for quarried materials.

  • Some glass filtration media only use one or two colours of glass, cherry-picking rather than recycling everything.

Our recycled glass sand is proud to encompass all the colours of glass available - WE RECYCLE 100% of a highly valuable and useful waste stream abandoned by the glass bottle recycling industry which is normally destined for landfill.

Our Recycled Glass Filter Media is a direct replacement for sand, enhancing the performance of a sand filter without the need for additional capital expenditure.


  • Sharp free

  • Environmentally friendly 100% recycled product

  • With superior permeability and a 30% smaller headloss development compared to sand; backwashing is quicker and less frequent saving you time, energy and money.

  • Angular to sub-angular particle shape and bound silica content provides a 30% improvement in turbidity removal over silica sand.

  • Less susceptible to bio-fouling as, unlike silica sand Glass Filtration Media particles have a smoother surface, so bacteria cannot get trapped in any cracks or flaws, which means less remedial action and again less chemical treatment to destroy pollutants.

  • Less dense than sand, requiring 15% less media to fill the equivalent filter.
