3 reasons why activate is a more effective filter media than sand:
- Better filtration with up to 300 times more surface area than sand for clearer water.
- Attracts and captures harmful bacteria with a negatively charged filter media for cleaner water.
- Prevents the growth of bacteria and algae with a self-sterilizing surface that for healthier water.
ACTIVATE comes in two different grades – Coarse Grade 2 and Fine Grade 1. Coarse goes on the bottom of the filter and Activate Fine is used over the top as a top layer. Once Activate is installed, back-wash the filter 3 times prior to use. Activate is provided in a sealed bag and ready for use. Follow the sand filter manufacturer’s instructions for filling the filter with sand and follow the steps below to determine the right amount of Dr. Dryden’s Activate for your filter.
