The AquaBead filters utilize the Omnifuser design that picks up heavier solids in the center of the bottom of the vessel. This prevents the filter from building up solids. These solids can then be drained during the backwash cycle. This filter doesn't hold solids -- it gets rid of them.
Life Support System
The AquaBead Life Support System (ALISS) is designed to keep bacteria alive if you ever have to do a medical bypass, or if your pump fails. A one-way valve on the front of the multiport valve allows air in without letting water seep out! Simply hook up an air pump to the barbed fitting, and air will flow into the filter, keeping the bacteria alive.
The AquaBead Agitator prevents the filter beads from sticking together. When this 2 HP pump kicks into action, air is injected into the bottom of the filter, which breaks up the clumped beads as it rises violently to the top.
