Water Filtration

Filter sand is an extremely effective filter media because of its ability to hold back precipitates containing impurities.

Pool Filter

Our Filter sand #10 and #20 is ideal for pool filter as its properly graded and dried. It is designed to be used in swimming pool filtration systems.

Aquarium Sand Filter

Our RS #30 and #60 are best for your aquarium for aesthetic purposes.

Side Stream Filtration

Side stream filtration is used to filter a portion of the systems circulating water, removing debris and particles that are adversely affecting the cooling loop and its components (heat exchangers, chillers and more).
