Bestway 1000gal Flowclear Sand Filter Pump
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 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 dont 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 its time to use the rinse setting. This dumps your waste water in an appropriate area of an outdoor space or garden.
