Aqua Forte Drum Filters
The Aquaforte Drum filter is a breakthough in both technology and price level! The first truly affordable drum filter.
The Aquaforte Dum Filter is supplied with a professional, software based controller and can be used on both pump and gravity fed systems.
Another unique feature of this drum filter is that you can either use mains water pressure (simply connect a hose pipe) or an optionally available pressure pump (recommended) to clean the filter as part of the automated backwash cycle.
These Aquaforte Drum Filters have a low installation height of just 10cm above the water level and is a perfect solution for those wishing to go to the next level without breaking the bank.
The drum filter has two 110mm Inlet connections and two 110mm outlet connections for connecting multiple pumps or for gravity exit into a bio chamber. The waste outlet is is also 110mm in size.
The Aqua Forte Drum Filter can accomodate flow rates up to 25m³/h (5500 gallons per hour), and the controller with it's custom software contains many safety options and funtions including motor slow start, motor amp prtoection, manual cleaning button and standard hourly cleaning etc.
