A Sand Filter with Manual Backwash Valve is a great choice for water quality filtration. Sand filters are able to catch particles as small as about 22 to 25 microns, which makes them suitable for most fountain applications. For most stationary and architectural fountains however, this is the preferred type of water filtration device. Sand filters come in several different variations, such as this one, an automatic backwash valves style, and an automatic backwash linkage style.
Each state’s Departments of Health has its own requirements for water features where the water may come in contact with the public, so it’s important to discuss your filter choice with your DOH or one of our representatives prior to purchase.
