Patented Internal Plumbing Design
One key as to why the Advantage bead filter works so well is its patented internal head design. We designed our head so that 70% of the water flow is directed straight through the filter head toward the bottom of the bead filter. This differs from most other filters that require that all the water make a sudden 90 degree turn though the head slots before entering the filter body.
This design accomplishes the following:
- It greatly lowers the resistance or head pressure.
- It greatly reduces any sludge build up in the bottom of the bead filter.
- This causes water to follow the contour of the filter bottom and therefore evenly distributes it across the beads as it raises though the bead filter.
