Sta-Rite System:3 Modular Cartridge Filters - SM Series

The Sta-Rite System 3 (SM Series) Modular Media Filters from Pentair is one of the best systems you can buy for filtering your swimming pool water. This is because the System 3 SM series filters have a perfectly balanced flow system and an integral manifold design. The System 3 pool filtration system is unique because it does not use ordinary cartridges. Instead, it utilizes Ultra-Capacity Filtration. This filtration concept puts totally care-free operation within your reach. Modular Filter Tanks allow for quick change of filter medias without emptying the entire tank like with sand.

Unlike conventional "cartridges," these filters combine a balanced flow and integral manifold design, plus an easily cleaned media element. Modular filter tanks allow for quick changing of the filter media. The result is a swimming pool filter system that not only requires less cleaning, but is also easy to clean. With this pool filter you get a durable, dependable filter in a stylish matte black finish.

Eco SelectWater flows very efficiently through the System:3 Mod Media cartridge filters, often allowing the use of smaller pumps or lower pump speeds to minimize energy use. And when you rinse cartridges rather than backwash, you can significantly reduce water use.

Features:

  • Balanced-flow tank hydraulics direct water through each side of the filter module for uniform dirt loading, no clogging, and long, * unattended operation.
  • Complete media coverage combined with shallow pleats for greater dirt holding capacities, longer filter cycles and less cleaning.
  • Shallow pleat design also permits quick and thorough cleaning—just rinse the module with a hose.
  • Durable two-piece tank housing constructed of Dura-Glas, Sta-Rite's industry leading glass-reinforced composite resin.
  • Posi-Lok clamps provide safe, easy access to tank internals.
  • Top-mounted pressure gauge conveniently located for at-a-glance viewing.
  • Dual drain plugs available: side plug to remove waste; bottom plug to drain entire filter.
  • 1 Year Warranty.
