The result is superior water clarity, extended filter cleaning cycles and no backwashing required. Perflex filters use diatomaceous earth filter powder commonly called D., which will remove particles as small as one micron, and is the most efficient dirt remover known. It will even remove microscopic dust and pollen. When the filter is initially started, diatomite filter powder is fed into the system, usually through the skimmer. As the water passes through the Flex-Tubes, the filter powder is automatically deposited on the outside of the Flex-Tubes, forming the working "filter surface". Similarly, dirt in the water is stopped on the surface of the filter powder. Eventually, the accumulated dirt causes the filter pressure to rise flow to diminish. This is when ordinary filters need backwashing - But Not Perflex.
Simply activate the Perflex "Bump" handle, and within a minute, flow and pressure are back to normal. Designed for use on above ground pools only. No backwashing - "bumping" activates Flex Tubes, repositioning dirt and D.
