Waterways SM3 Mixed Bed Filter

Mixed bed filters are used for sediment removal over a wide range of flow rates. Due to a much larger surface area and the ability to be backwashed the dirt holding/handling capability of a mixed bed filter is far superior to cartridges. The beds can be made up of different filtering sands and filtration media.
