Deep bed filtration results in superior water quality and reduces the load on downstream equipment.
High sediment removal capacity results in longer filter runs, with a substantial savings in backwash water and time out of service.
High service flow rates result in lower equipment costs and a savings in space.
Reduced shipping cost due to lighter weight/cu.ft.
Replacement of multimedia with Filter-Ag Plus in existing installations may increase filter capacity.
Filter-Ag Plus is an all-natural, environmentally safe product.
