During the pool filtration process, the dirty water from the pool goes through the inlet pipe of the filter to the distribution head located in the tank. Depending with the type of the filter you have, as the gravity pulls the water down, typically sand traps the debris and dirt. The filtered water then recirculates to the swimming pool.
Sand has been used as an active filter media for many years now and is still considered a main player in swimming pool filters. But if there were something better than sand wouldn’t you prefer using it as your filter media? Guess what?! Atlas Blue has introduced a new filter media called Activated Filter Material by Dryden Aqua.
Dryden Aqua is one of the largest manufacturer of glass filtration media. Their Activated Filter Media (also known as AFM) is the best performing filter media on the market with a certified 1 micron filtration rate. Atlas Blue provides this AFM to replace the your current filter media which is most probably sand.
So why AFM?
Activated Filter Media (AFM) is a direct replacement for sand, doubling the performance of sand filters without the need of additional investments in infrastructure. AFM is a highly engineered product manufactured from a specific glass type, processed to obtain the optimum particle size and shape. It is then exposed to a 3-step activation process to become self-sterilizing and to acquire superior adsorption properties.
