We use sand filters because it has been tried and tested, not only in its simplicity but also the fact it is compatible with other additives if necessary.
Pool filters are normally made from fibre glass, smooth on the outside but rough on the inside. This rough surface collects bacteria in the one place you want to clean the water.
Our filters with valves are made of chemical and weather-resistant modified polypropylene. Injection moulded, with the two halves thermally welded. Highly versatile, with top or side-mounted, six-way valve. This gives a perfectly smooth finish on the inside and out, free from bacteria growth.
They have a working pressure: 2.5 bar; maximum pressure: 3.5 bar. Connection with 1 1⁄2” six-way valve for Ø520 and Ø620 mm models; 2” for Ø760 mm models. Fitted with a pressure gauge and air valve.
They also have double drainage in the lower section of the filter: 1 1⁄2” to totally empty the filter; 1⁄2” to drain water without loss of sand. There is a transparent lid on the side-mounted version for easy inspection. Valve joint/lid (depending on Top- or Side- mounted version) to the filter via a 203 mm anti-blockage seal.
