Clean & ClearŪ Plus Filters have a corrosion resistant injection molded filter tank featuring superior strength and reliability. The cartridge assembly uses four easy to clean, non-woven, polyester cartridges. Each filter is supplied with a bulkhead union set for easy installation.
DE (Diatomaceous Earth) Filters: For the best possible filtration, a DE filter is the choice for you. However, DE filters also require the highest level of maintenance. DE filters remove debris down to about 3-5 microns in size
Sand Filters: The most common form of pool filters are sand filters. Sand filters remove debris down to about 25-30 microns in size, but by using advanced filter media such as Zeo Sand, sand filters can remove debris down to about 5-8 microns in size
