Swimming pool sand filters

Portland Pool Products swimming pool sand filters are designed to provide years of trouble-free service and superb quality, sparkling clean water. The product has been built with the durability to cope with the demands of modern high-rate filtration cycles using filament wound structural fibre-glass tanks which are UV stabilised to prevent degradation due to light, common over time to some synthetic filters.

Portland Pool Products sand filters are available in top-mount and side-mount configurations, depending on preference, and are designed to allow rapid and easy servicing and maintenance.
