Sand filters are the ultimate in above ground pool filtration as they require less maintenance than a cartridge based filter system. The 1000gal sand filter pump has such a large capacity, it is suitable for most above ground pools, including very large swimming pools up to a massive 30,200 litres volume. The Bestway® 1,000gal Flowclear™ Sand Filter is a cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to keep a steady flow of clean, clear water circulating around your Bestway® pool. The Flowclear™ Sand Filter is designed to help keep large above ground pools clear of bacteria and microscopic nasties that can get into the swimming pool water through use. The sand filter pump even has a strainer to separate rough debris, such as dead leaves and insects.
As pool water enters the sand filtration system it has to bypass the silica sand. It's a highly effective way to purify water because the sand is so miniscule and compact. Whilst liquid effortlessly pumps through it, other dirt and debris gets trapped in-between the sand or stuck on the surface. The sand filter can pump approx. 1000gal/ 3,785L per hour, and filters 3,407L/h (900 gal./h) when connected to the pool. It features a durable corrosion proof filter tank for lasting durability against the acidic nature of chlorinated pool water.
One of the benefits of using a sand filter for swimming pools is that you don't have to replace a filter cartridge or rinse it out on a regular basis. When the pressure gauge reaches red you simply turn the 'backwash' setting on the control valve. Once the backwash is complete and a waste hose has been connected it's time to use the 'rinse' setting. This dumps your waste water in an appropriate area of an outdoor space or garden.
