CRYSTAL CLEAR The AstralPool CA Media Filter produces crystal clear water using fine sand or recycled crushed glass media as the filter medium. Each filter incorporates an engineered multiport valve to direct the water flow and minimise the resistance through the filter, making the CA Media Filter ideal for today’s energy efficient high performance pumps.

FILTER BREAKTHROUGH The CA range represents the largest investment in design and production for any residential filter range using high quality hardened steel tooling to produce high tolerance, high strength tanks which provide the longest trouble free life available. This high tolerance enables the screw on lock ring to secure the multiport valve along with self sealing barrel unions which enable fast, simple installation, easy service and access to the filter media in future years.

WARRANTY Each filter is covered by a limited 10 year warranty on the tank and 12 month warranty on the valve and internals.
