Backwashing Filter

Time to Read: 0m 42s

A backwashing filter is a large, tank-type filter that cleans and renews itself via backwashing. That is, by reversing the flow of water so that it enters from the bottom of the filter bed, lifts and rinses that bed, and then exits the filter tank through the top.An automatic backwashing filter unit.

Backwashing filters can accommodate flow rates from less than a hundred gallons per minute (GPM) to several thousand GPM.
