 Save Water. Save Money. Save Time.

Upgrade your pool to duel stage filtration. The Helix Stage One™ removes 80% of the debris down to 20 microns. Its completely self contained and works on the basis of centrifugal water filtration. It is designed with no moving parts, no electrical components, and best of all no filter element or media to clean or replace. 80% of the incoming dirt load is removed before water makes it to the pool filter. This makes the filter much more efficient, and extends your maintenance interval 4 times, making your pool much easier to maintain, all while giving you healthier, cleaner water.

Removes up-to 80% of the incoming dirt load, dramatically reducing the main filters maintaince intervals.

What is it?

The Helix is the brilliant new pre-filtration device that can help you save thousands of gallons of water and reduce filter maintenance. Based on the principles of centrifugal water filtration – it collects 80% of the dirt that clogs your filter before it gets there.It drastically reduces backwashing and filter cartridge maintenance. There are no moving parts to wear and tear, and no filter media to clean or replace.

How does it work?

Water travels up through the bottom of the unit where it hits a plate that forces the water back down into 16 cyclone funnels. As the water is forced down into the funnels it spins and debris is forced out to the walls which causes it to fall down into the funnel. Clean water then flows up through the center of the cyclone and out the top of the unit. The dirt and debris falls down and settles in the clear canister below. When enough debris is settled in the canister a flush valve located at the bottom of the canister is opened and debris is purged out of the waste line.


  1.  Unfiltered “dirty” water in.
  2. Water hits plate and is forced down into cyclones.
  3. Cyclonic action spins water and dirt debris out.
  4. Dirt and debris fall down.
  5. Clean water flows out top.
  6. Flush valve is used to purge debris out.

Easy Clean Out

As debris is separated from pool water it spirals down and settles in the sediment chamber. Accumulation is easily monitored thru the clear lower half of the cyclone. When it is time to flush a simple twist of the release valve will clear the sediment while losing as little as four gallons of water.

Filterless Design

There is no filter media to clean or replace and no moving or electric parts to break.  The Helix Stage One centrifugal filter makes your pool much easier to maintain.


Filters Bigger than its size

The Helix Stage One is designed with 2″ valve ports, and a 2″ internal assembly, head loss is 3-4 PSI making it super efficient to operate.
