Product description Brand name and product description

The AquaDisk Cloth Media Filter is a system that arranges disks of cloth media for tertiary filtration. The systems are available in arrangements of either six or twelve disks, and the media is chlorine resistant. Powered by a PLC control system, the filter operates in three phases: filter mode, backwash mode, and solids wasting mode. Filter mode involves sending water through the system where solids accumulate on the cloth media. Backwash mode cleans disks, and solids waste mode pumps waste to a collection area.
