We have been testing our PLATINUM series for over a year and a half to make sure we have a solid, proven design. This series includes an automated, continuous mechanical filtration that replaces filter socks. We tested several different designs and found that having the fleece roll system sized to the sump is by far the most efficient. Our fleece rolls have been lasting 4 to over 6 months, unlike filter socks that need to be changed every few days. Every user so far has reported improved water quality, with some stating algae is no longer a problem. The fleece rolls are 8″ or 10″ wide depending on the model and 150 feet long. Each sump comes with 2 rolls in the box.
This design will automatically roll new fleece to be filtered as soon as the fleece in the sump becomes dirty. We created a diamond pattern for the water to flow through which follows the gem theme, but purposely uses the most surface area on the fleece. Maximizing surface area is key in this design to allow the fleece to last longer and to allow for more water flow. We have tested up to 3000 gph without any flow issues.
The PLATINUM series has all the bells and whistles. Below is a list of additional features. We will add more details soon.
