HCF Series 36" Laminated Sand Filter



he HCF Series Sand Filter is engineered to stand the test of time. An optimized internal and external design improves filter cycle times, accuracy, install times and reduces maintenance while increasing durability against compromising elements.

The filters distribute water more evenly with a multi-diffuser configuration, increasing filter cycles, effectiveness, and longevity of the filter. Installation and maintenance are easier than ever before.
