Cloth Media Filter

The AquaDiamond® filter is a unique combination of two proven technologies: traveling bridge and cloth media filters. The result is two to three times the flow capacity of a traveling bridge filter within an equivalent footprint, making it ideal for sand filter retrofits. The unit features all of the same benefits and (3) modes of operation as the AquaDisk® but with vertically oriented diamond laterals and a traveling platform.
