We all use filters. Whether it’s a water, furnace, refrigerator, oven, automotive or microwave filter, they are the key component to keeping our air and water clean and fresh. More and more, state governments are increasing regulations on water and air quality in an attempt to keep citizens safe. This increased awareness has led manufacturers to create new and improved ways to produce filters. In particular, Bayer MaterialScience has partnered with BayOne Urethane Systems LLC to introduce innovative ways to produce the best in filtration materials. As website azom.com reports, “Bayer has strengthened its technical leadership role in the filtration market by expanding its reach and leveraging a global materials supply chain to benefit customers.”
The polyurethane that Bayer manufactures can be used in either rigid or flexible functions, which is ideal for various filtration needs. For example, the Filbur FC-2370 Rainbow Dynamic pool filter uses thermally bonded polyurethane to ensure durability and consistent water flow. Many additional pool and spa filters use polyurethane technology to ensure a high quality, durable product. Unlike other materials, polyurethane is lightweight, faster to manufacture, and uses much less environment harming resources than other materials . So, kudos to Bayer MaterialScience for working to create earth friendly materials for use in filter media.
Summer is right around the corner, which means pool maintenance is a must. For pool filter replacement, Filters Fast carries a wide selection of pool filter cartridges made by Filbur, which are compatible with many name-brand pool and spa manufacturers like Hayward, Pentair, Sta-Rite and Jacuzzi. (If you need a filter that is not listed on the site, we can most likely get it for you if Filbur makes a compatible, so please don’t hesitate to call us.)
All Filbur cartridge pool filters are made with Reemay spunbound, polyester, pleated filter media with polyurethane end caps for durability as well as punched PVC pipe cores to ensure consistent flow. In addition, these pool filter parts feature Microban technology to prevent the growth of bacteria, mold, fungus and mildew. These filters replace various Unicel, Harmsco and Pleatco filters in most name-brand pools and spas.
Recently, we added the Filbur DE grid to our list of pool filter products. These DE, or diatomaceous earth filters have a reinforced center core for extra durability; they are stitched with chemical resistant string and sonic welded to prevent fraying.
In addition to filter products, we also carry various water quality pool test kits. Make sure your family is safe while swimming with a Watersafe Bacteria Pool Test Kit for Pools and Spas, which uses disposable test strips to detect bacteria in less than 20 minutes. In addition, this ITS eXact Micro 7+ Standard Photometer Kit allows for the testing of 26 different parameters to ensure the safety of water for swimming and for a variety of other uses. Its waterproof meter brings faster and more accurate results than those provided by test strips alone.
