All of the AquaBead filters utilize the Omnifuser design technology that eliminates slotted PVC pipes in the filter. The Omnifusers allow the heavier solids to be easily purged from the bottom of the filter during backwash since they are sitting at the lowest point in the filter. AquaBead filters also feature the AquaBead Life Support System, known as “ALISS”, which keeps beneficial bacteria alive indefinitely during times of medical shutdowns, pumps failures, etc.
