Dryden Aqua provides sustainable and cost-effective water filtration and treatment solutions for swimming pools worldwide. Dr. Howard Dryden, one of the world’s leading experts in sustainable water treatment, founded the company in 1980.
Golden Coast is the sole distributor for both Dryden Activated Filter Media (AFM) and the Dryden DAISY integrated system in the UK and Ireland.

Dryden AFM is a direct replacement for sand, doubling the performance of sand filters without the need of additional investments in infrastructure.

AFM removes about 50% more organic substances from the water than sand and other glass filter media and can be used in practically every type of pool installation without any other changes.

Dryden DAISY is an integrated swimming pool water treatment system that prevents the growth of bacteria and pathogens and minimises the need for chlorine and other disinfectants.

DAISY consists of three integrated steps:

AFM improves filtration and eliminates the breeding ground for bacteria.

APF advanced coagulation, flocculation and filtration removes nutrients from the water so bacteria cannot grow.

In outdoor pools, ACO is a photo catalyst and chlorine stabilizer that uses the energy of the sun to catalyse the formation of free radicals to clean pool water without any harmful by-products.
