Aqua Solutions with AFM®

AFM is a direct replacement for sand in any type of sand filter and is now successfully used in over 100,000 installations worldwide. Simply replacing the sand with AFM, will greatly improve the performance and stability of the filters and provide security against unnecessary maintenance stoppages.  AFM does not channel, so unfiltered water will never enter the product water, and because of this engineered property the security of the water supply is assured.

A perfect solution to a difficult problem achieved with no change to the existing infrastructure, and once AFM is in the filters, it never needs to be changed.
