Waterco Multicyclone 16 Centrifugal Filter 2" #200370

Waterco’s award winning MultiCyclone is a brilliant pre-filtration device that works on the basis of centrifugal water filtration and is designed with no moving parts and no filter media to clean or replace.

Key features:

  • Minimizes filter maintenance and saves water
  • No filter media to clean or replace
  • Suitable for new and existing installations
  • 2 year warranty


The MultiCyclone works on the basis of centrifugal water filtration. There are no moving parts to wear and tear and no filter media to clean or replace. Incoming water is guided by a diverter plate so that it enters multiple hydrocyclones tangentially, generating a strong centrifugal effect. This spins the sediment out to the hydrocyclone’s wall and then spirals it down to the sediment sump, while the cleansed water spirals upwards.

The MC16 model has been on the market for a while, but the clever engineers at Waterco have taken this fantastic unit one step further and developed the MultiCyclone MC12: a vertically-mounted, all-in-one prefiltration system. An ultra-compact design, the MC12 includes all the features and benefits of centrifugal filtration as incorporated in the MC16 model. The difference is that the MC12 contains fewer cyclones, resulting in the unit being able to operate at lower flow rates while still being able to remove sediment from the pond water.

On top of that, an air release valve has now been incorporated into both the MC12 and MC16 MultiCyclones – this not only helps to expel any unwanted air within the system, but also helps in cleaning out the sediment chamber.

With a clear sediment sump so you can actually see the waste being removed from your pond system, this is the perfect piece of equipment to ensure that you get a crystal-clear view of your Koi this season.

Ease filter workload

MultiCyclone pre-filters up to 80% of the filter’s incoming dirt load easing the workload of the swimming pool or pond filter. As the MultiCyclone intercepts more and more dirt, the flow rate remains unchanged.

  • Improving pond water circulation
  • Enhancing the performance of the automatic pool cleaner and in floor cleaning system
  • Allowing effective pool vacuuming without burdening the pool filter
  • Minimizing filter maintenance and saving water

Minimize backwash frequency

The installation of a MultiCyclone as a pre-filter to a sand filter can reduce its backwash frequency to once per year, resulting in a saving of up to 7,000 liters of water per year for an average domestic sized swimming pool.

Minimize cartridge cleaning and replacement

The installation of a MultiCyclone as a pre-filter to a cartridge filter can reduce filter cartridge cleaning and replacement to once per swimming season and even up to once per year, depending on the size of the cartridge filter.

Centrifugal water filtration

The MultiCyclone works on the basis of centrifugal water filtration. There are no moving parts to wear and tear, and no filter media to clean or replace.


  1. Incoming water enters 12 hydro cyclones tangentially, generating a strong centrifugal effect.
  2. The sediment is spun out to the hydro cyclone’s wall, and then spirals down to the sediment chamber*.
  3. The filtered water migrates towards the centre of the hydro cyclone where the flow reverses and spirals upwards through the outlet.
  4. Accumulation of sediment can be visibly monitored through the MultiCyclone’s clear sediment chamber.

*Note: The MultiCyclone is designed to filter sediment that is heavier than water, floating debris cannot be filtered out by centrifugal filtration.

Simple maintenance

The MultiCyclone is easily cleaned by opening its purge valve. Only 15 liters of water is discharged to cleanse the MultiCyclone.
