Squeaky clean and crystal clear. That'll give you a clear idea of what it's like to have a System 3 sand filter at work in your swimming pool. This filter is designed to remove more dirt and impurities, which will make your water feel fresher and look more inviting. We've made maintenance easier, too. Cleaning is as simple as applying a little wrist action to the control valve and walking away. And you won't have to do it very often! Through innovative engineering, the filter's dirt-handling capacity is maximized, which pays off in less maintenance. But best of all, the System 3 will make your pool water sparkle in the sun and shimmer in the moonlight.
Sand is the most widely used filtration method for swimming pools. Convenience, low maintenance and water quality are the reasons for sand's popularity. The System 3 sand filter is a time-tested favorite with pool owners for its simple maintenance, easy-to-operate control valve selector and outstanding water clarity. The biggest reason for installing the System 3 the additional leisure time you'll spend enjoying your pool.
Low, low maintenance - 16-spoke filter hub evenly distributes water through entire sand layer, which greatly increases the amount of dirt the System 3 can hold. Increased dirt loading extends the time between cleanings.
