Pleatco, the New-York based filtration company, has introduced new PLEATCO ADVANCED filter cartridges for pools and spas.
The cartridges center around a completely new and unique, uniformly bonded filtration media, which drives exceptional cleaning performance for clear, healthy pool and spa water.
How do PLEATCO ADVANCED Filter Cartridges work?
PLEATCO ADVANCED 4oz bonded media contains more fibers per unit area, offering greater volume dirt-holding capacity.
With reduced pore size distribution, the fabric speeds up turbidity reduction through unique cross filtration flow. This easily and efficiently captures dirt particles to achieve a deeper level of cleanliness and clarity than ever before.
How were they developed?
PLEATCO ADVANCED was meticulously tested over an 18-month period with the assistance of over 40 industry professionals and pool owners nationwide who put the new product through rigorous paces in broad climates, environments, and conditions. The results were a resounding win for Pleatco.
“PLEATCO ADVANCED is the new standard that takes the entire industry to the next level, not just Pleatco,” says Richard Medina, vice president of engineering at Pleatco.
What are the benefits of PLEATCO ADVANCED?
Combining the new media with Pleatco’s unique FREE FLOW CORE® technology, PLEATCO ADVANCED filter cartridges offer many benefits, including:
- lower pressure
- greater flow
- less wear and tear on the pump
- extended life of the product
- extended time between necessary cleaning
- less overall energy consumption
“PLEATCO ADVANCED cartridges held up great all summer, were very easy to clean, and really kept my pool perfectly sparkling,” says pool owner Kim Rahe, Ohio.
Pool owner Terry Weaver, North Carolina, also reports great success with the product. “Pleatco Advanced worked remarkably well with no significant increase in pressure and our pool has remained clear throughout this season, even though we had an incredible amount of pollen.”
Seven years ago, under new owner and CEO Howard Smith, Pleatco began turning the tide in their category. Innovative thinking and a scientific approach to filtration of pool and spa water are hallmarks of the company’s rise to prominence in the industry. PLEATCO ADVANCED is the newest step in the revolution of water filtration technology.
“When it comes to clean water,” says Pleatco’s Howard Smith, “we’re never done. We have an obligation to do what’s right.” That commitment is underscored by research, which shows a child drinks 1.3 ounces of water for every 45 minutes they play in a pool - a sobering statistic the whole Pleatco team takes to heart. It moves them to raise the bar higher.
