The Basics – Sand Filters

Sand Filters

Filtration systems

Sand filters are one of the most popular ways to filter water. For good reason. They are simple, effective, and require very little attention. Pool water is routed through a sand-filled pressure vessel. Over time, dirt accumulates in the spaces between the sand particles causing the pressure in the vessel to rise as water finds it harder to pass through. This signals you to “backwash” the filter. Simply reverse the water flow and “knock out” the dirt.

We Recommend:

Our new ClearPro Technology® traps particles five times smaller than sand alone, delivering 60% cleaner water. ClearPro is only available on our most popular sand filters: Sand Dollar®, Tagelus® and Triton® II.
