Filter Backwash

Backwashing is a form of preventive maintenance so that the filter media can be reused. Backwash filtration systems remove the need to regularly clean filters, provide information on how clean your water is and help to prevent water loss.

Backwashing filters

Backwashing water filters are large tank-style filters that clean and renew themselves by backwashing. Used as a form of preventative maintenance, backwashing consists of reversing the flow of water so that it enters from the bottom of the filter bed, lifts and rinses the bed, then exits through the top of the filter tank. The purpose of this process is to rinse and settle the bed to prepare it for return to service flow.

Filtration systems use both media and backwash filters to collect any particles that flow through your water or enter the water system.

Backwash filtration system

Filters need cleaning regularly as the pores become clogged. However, ATi’s backwash filtration system removes the need to regularly clean the filter and provides information on how clean your water is, whilst helping prevent water loss. Our FilterSmart solution helps reverse the flow of water while increasing its velocity. This pushes the particles away from your clean water.
