Universal Aquabead Features!
Easy access to beads, you don’t have to take off all your plumbing to open the filter for bead access.
Aquabead Air Agitator column comes with double union spring check valve so the air riser isn’t full of water in winter – which could cause freeze damage, and you can’t flood your blower.
Aquabead Air Agitator has a switch on it! Use the switch instead of asking your spouse to unplug the thing.
AquaBead design allows the use of high volume low pressure pumps. Make sure as you compare that you won’t need a high pressure pump which are energy hogs.
AquaBead tanks are pressure rated to 50 psi in case you accidentally left a valve closed, you’d blow your pump before this filter even groaned.
“Easy Drain” means there’s a valve that you can open solely to drain the filter, while sparing your beads. Once drained the filter is pretty easy to move.
“Vortex Design” inside the filter swirls the water to the center of the bottom of the chamber, which leads to the next cool thing:
“Aquabead Solids Purge” is a ball valve drain centered in the bottom of the filter that when opened, discharges accumulated sinking waste direct to waste.
“AquaBead Life Support” – So, you’re medicating?, Then you’re using a medical bypass function of the AquaBead head, does this mean that your bead bacterial-colonies dying? Nope. There’s an air induction system which can tumble and aerate the beads while they wait to go back online!
The AquaBead multiport head is plumbed with 2 inch throughput. Never bottle-necks down to 1-1/2″ or anything smaller than 2 inch!!
