1,500gal Flowclear™ Sand Filter
Product Ref: BW58199
Bestway 1,500gal Flowclear™ Sand Filter makes an extremely efficient and environmentally friendly upgrade to a standard filter pump. It’s also a cost-effective way of circulating clean, clear water so that your pool is fresh, hygienic and doesn’t smell like a portaloo on the final night of a three-day festival.
The sand filter pump filters the water through silica sand, which only needs to be replaced once every three years. This is in stark contrast to the cartridges used in standard filter pumps, which need to be replaced every few weeks during periods of heavy use. Water is passed through a swimming pool outlet, down a hosepipe and into the sand pool filter system. Once it has been cleaned of dirt and debris it passes down another hose pipe and through a swimming pool inlet, before repeating the cycle all over again.
The reason silica sand is such an effective method of filtering filth is because it’s so fine, coarse and compact. Whereas water passes through the sand with staggering simplicity, dirt and debris is too hard and lumpy so it gets trapped between the granules or stuck on the surface. The above ground pool sand filter even has a strainer to prevent leaves, twigs and large debris from blocking the filtration system as water gushes through!
Clearing debris from the sand, when the sand filter pump’s pressure gauge indicates that it’s full, is an extremely simple exercise. You don’t have to rinse it out by hand, as you would a filter cartridge, because the silica sand pool filter does it automatically. It’s a case of turning the ‘backwash’ valve to flush debris from the sand, connecting a waste hose, turning the ‘rinse’ valve and pumping dirt and grime to a suitable deposit area. The filter tank is even corrosion proof so it’ll be pumping your pool for many, many seasons!
Bestway 1,500gal Flowclear™ Sand Filter is compatible with 18ft Fast Set™ Pools and Steel Frame Pools. It’s one of many products designed to make cleaning and maintenance as easy as swimming with a float.
