1 ½ - 360° Patented ABS Laterals
The patented astral laterals are constructed of a noncorrosive, chemical resistant ABS. The laterals are engineered to remove water from under the lateral system to help prevent unwanted bacteria growth. The hydraulically balanced design also allows for even water flow through the media bed during filtration and backwashing. The Astral Laterals are covered by a lifetime warranty.
The Astral diffuser heads are constructed of injected molded PVC. The diffusers are engineered to be non-clogging and to provide an even water flow over the entire surface of the media bed to ensure optimum water quality.
The internal plumbing in all Astral Commercial filters are constructed of schedule 80 PVC. All hardware in wetted applications is constructed TP 304 stainless steel.
Only the highest quality polyester resins, fiberglass, gel coats, and plastics are used to construct astral filters.
