The S series of filters embody the latest in filament wound fibreglass; Waterco's digitally controlled filament winding machine faultlessly winds continuous strands of high quality fibreglass filament under controlled tension to create a seamless one-piece vessel with refined consistency and superior quality technique making it very resistant to corrosion and abrasion. There are no welds or seams or special tank linings, which can corrode or undergo electrolytic reactions. The fabrication technique involved in making the S series of media filters ensure that it will stand up very well to environmental extremes.

Micron Fibreglass Filters
Micron filters operate on the basis of "depth filtration"; dirt is driven through the filter bed and trapped in minute spaces between the particles of filter media allowing the cleansed water to pass through the filter's laterals and exit via the filter's multiport valve.
Filament Wound Filters
Micron fibreglass filters embody the latest in fibreglass winding technology. Micron fibreglass vessels consist of an inner shell of fiberglass reinforced polyester resin wound over with fibreglass filament. Waterco’s digitally controlled filament winding machine faultlessly winds continuous strands of high quality fibreglass filament under controlled tension filament to create a seamless one-piece vessel with refined consistency and superior quality. There are no welds or seams or special tank linings which can corrode or electrolyse.
The effectiveness and efficiency of the filter is impaired by excessive build up of debris, clogging the media, which will result in pressure build up and poor circulation. Cleaning the filter simply requires turning the filter's Multiport lever from the "filter" position to the "backwash" position, which reverses the flow of water in the filter, flushing the filter bed.
