The Meteor Sand Filter System features superior filtering combined with easy operation and cleaning without changing filter cartridges. The 18" diameter sand filter container uses 65 - 100 lbs of #20 Silica Sand (available at allmost all home improvement stores, lumber yards and etc) to remove dirt particles from the water.The sand functions as the permanent dirt removing media. The pool water, which contains suspended dirt particles, is pumped through the system and is automatically directed by the filter control valve to the top of the filter tank. As the pool water is pumped through the sand, dirt is trapped by the sand and filtered out. The cleaned pool water is returned from the filter tank, through the control valve and back to the pool.
