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.
