Sta-Rite System 3 High Rate Sand Filter

System 3 brings you the proven performance of Sta-Rite's sophisticated sand filter hydraulics in the easiest to operate filter. Highly efficient, its sophisticated design yields a uniform flow pattern through a deeper sand bed than any other. Modular filter tanks allow for quick change of filter medias without changing the tank.

Sta-Rite has made maintenance easier, too. Cleaning is as simple as applying a little wrist action to the control valve and walking away. And its dirt handling capacity pays off in less maintenance.

Applications: Inground pools, inground hot tubs, and water features. Valve not included.

  • Maximum Operating Pressure: 50 psi
  • Durable two-piece tank housing constructed of Dura-Glas, Sta-Rite's industry leading glass-reinforced composite resin
  • The innovative design of the System:3 tank combined with the lateral/hub assembly produces a balanced flow of water and larger dirt holding capacity
  • The deep sand bed holds more dirt, resulting in longer filter cycles and less cleaning
  • Side plug helps make sand removal easy, while the bottom plug comes with integral screen for easy draining without the loss of sand
  • Contemporary style and matte black finish looks attractive in any pool setting
  • NSF Listed
