What is Filter X
Filter-X is a maximum strength filter cleaner that works by removing oil, grime and scale from sand, cartridge and diatomaceous earth filters.
What does this mean to me?
It means increasing the water flow and helping to keep the water cleaner, while increasing efficiency of the filtration system. Filter-X is compatible with all sanitizers, including biguanides and silver.
