MDX - Active Main Drain

MDX Debris Removal System™ is the new system which Paramount launched in the market at the beginning of 2003. The name "MDX Debris Removal System" tells us that MDX is something more than just a conventional drain. Having the MDX installed in a pool, it cleans the pool fast and exemplarily, besides having many layers of "Anti-Trap" protection. In combination with any Integrated Cleaning System, MDX is very efficient in disposing of all the dirt that the Cleaning System is collecting from the entire pool. Connected to a Debris Canister the results are a clean swimming pool, always ready to be enjoyed and without needing any additional work in order to maintain it.

 * Anti- Trap effect: 

The "trap" is referring to the accidents that may happen when a swimmer remains stuck by the drain due to an excessive aspiration. It can happen in swimming pools, hot springs or spas. In the majority of the cases, the accidents are happening because the drain was not protected, the drain cover has not "anti-vortex" capability, or because a secondary emergency drain is missing. Knowing the "trap" effect, in the last twenty years changed the norms and regulation of building swimming pools, forcing the builders to install an "anti-trap" security system which will make impossible those type of accidents.

The last active drains manufactured by Paramount Pools are MDX2 and MDXR3. These drains are in compliance with all the norms and regulations which exists in the United States and they are very efficient in the installations with integrated in-floor cleaning systems, getting out all the dirt collected by the cleaning nozzles.
