Sand filter tank from BWT

The filter media of the BWT sand filters is sand.
The sand filter P-FI is an ABS injection moulded sand filter which has been specially treated against the effects of UV light. A 6-way valve is integrated in the upper part of the filter, which has been provided with 3 inlets or outlets for gluing. These have a diameter of 50 mm.

The P-FI filter is equipped as standard with the following (not pre-assembled) connections:
