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:

  1. It greatly lowers the resistance or head pressure.
  2. It greatly reduces any sludge build up in the bottom of the bead filter.
  3. 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.
