Uses for Pure Aqua Filter Media and Resin
Precision sizing and uniform grading to close limits meet standard specifications. These products are used nationally and internationally due to their high quality, desirable chemical properties and sizing.
Pure Aqua sand is graded specifically for water filtration plants. It can be used in municipal and industrial applications for sediment filtration. Pure Aqua uncrushed gravel has a highly spherical shape that promotes good flow and even distribution in support beds.

Media Functions and Remarks:
ANTH-.8.9: Filtration media. Backwash when flow rate is noticeably retarded.
Calcite-50: Acidic water slowly to raise pH which reduces the potential leaching of copper, lead, and other metals found in typical plumbing systems. Add mineral when pH elevation no longer occurs or backwash when flow rate is noticeably retarded.
Coconut 12x40: Dechlorination as well as removal of tastes, odors, tannins. Replace when taste, odor, or chlorine are no longer removed.
Coconut 12x40 AW: Promotion of oxidation, specific applications include chloramines and organic compounds. ;Replace when taste, odor, or chlorine are no longer removed.
A8041: Removal of Fe & Mn. Iron alone - 600 grains. Iron and Manganese - 400 grains. H2SO4 - 175 grains.
GRAV-C 1/2 x 3/4: Filtration Support. Backwash when flow rate is noticeably retarded.
GRAV-M 1/4 x 1/8: Filtration Support. ;Backwash when flow rate is noticeably retarded.
GRAV-F 1/4 x 1/2: Filtration Support. ;Backwash when flow rate is noticeably retarded.
GRAV-FF 1/8 x 1/16: Filtration Support. ;Backwash when flow rate is noticeably retarded.
Sand-20: Filtration media.
ProSand: SDI Reduction. High filtration 3-5 micron removal
GARN-8: High Specific gravity. Free silica - minimal. Acid Solubility - Minimal
GARN-30x30: High Specific gravity
GARN-8x12: High Specific gravity
Ag: Less pressure loss through a bed of Filter-Ag than through most other filter media. Upon installation allow bed to soak overnight before backwashing.
Ag-Plus: Deep bed filtration results in superior water quality and reduces the load on downstream equipment. A gravel support bed is required.
Birm (A8006): Reduction of Fe & Mn. H2SO4 should be removed prior to contact with Birm Media.
MTM (A8012): Reduction of Fe, MN, and H2SO4. Oil - None present. Polyphosphates - None present.
Pyrolox (A8004): Reduction of Fe, S, and Mn. No chemical regeneration required.
Corosex (A8011): Neutralize acidity by increasing the pH value. High capacity, less chemical usage.
Graded in various ranges, Pure Aqua Sand can be used as a filtration medium or as underbedding depending on particle size and application.
Anthracite is recommended as a filter medium where additional silica in the water is not desirable and may be used to remove lighter weight turbidity.
Calcite media is specially graded calcium carbonate compound for neutralizing acid in water and provides consistent dissolving rates for treatment.
Pure Aqua activated carbon medium is used to remove taste, odor and chlorine and is used in many pretreatment processes in drinking water applications.
Manganese Greensand media is treated siliceous material used for treating water containing iron, manganese and hydrogen sulfide.
ProSand is based on a rare natural mineral and it’s unique properties allow it to radically alter the performance and cost of media filtration
