Perma-Beads® are specifically designed sinking beads that will replace sand in any brand sand filter media system. There are no plumbing changes needed. Perma-Beads® will eliminate clogging, compaction and channeling in any size system. Perma-Beads® are spherical in shape and about 3 mm in diameter. If you imagine these little spheres stacked up under the water flow there are tremendous interstitial spaces available to capture debris. Perma-Beads® have the slipperiness of Teflon but are much harder. Perma-Beads® are very dense yet fluidize easily upon backwash due to their unique surface properties. It is this special combination of high density and super slippery surface properties that allows the dirt to easily blow out of the filter upon backwash. No plumbing changes are needed.
