    Raypak Protege SF Sand Filter Systems

    The Raypak Protege SF Sand Filter is easy to operate, reliable and built to last. Constructed of a one-piece rotomolded tank of high-impact resistant polymers that is unaffected by UV rays or temperature extremes. On top of the SF filter is a high-flow multi-port valve with union connections. A clean/dirty pressure gauge is easy to read, and the oversized valve handle and drain plug are easy to operate. 

    The Raypak Protege SFP Sand Filter System comes with the Protege SF sand filter and an AGP above ground pool pump. The SFP makes installation simple and comes with a pre-installed plumbing package and sturdy base for mounting pump and filter. A complete aboveground filter system, the only thing missing is the filter sand; which can be included with your order.

      Raypak Protege SF Sand Filter Systems

      Filter Sizing: We have five Raypak SF filter tank sizes, and recommend an upsize for each 5,000 gallons of pool water, for best results and longest filter cycles. The 14" filter is suitable for 5000 gal pools, the 16" for 10000 gal pools, the 18" filter for 15000 gal pools, 21" filter for 20000 gal pools and the 25" filter for pools over 25000 gals. 

      Upsizing, or buying one size larger is recommended for pool filters. The largest Raypak sand filter systems, with the 1.5 hp pump, operate best on a pool with two suction outlets and two returns where possible. Larger sand filters can clear up adverse water conditions faster, or prevent them in the first place, when the water is already over-filtered. 

      Filter Cleaning: Sand filter systems are backwashed clean to restore water flow. When pressure rises 7-9 psi, simply shut off the pump, roll-out your backwash hose (sold separately), turn the multiport valve to the Backwash position, and turn the pump back on to flush out dirt and debris from the filter. We recommend using a sand filter cleaner chemical each time before backwashing, adding a few ounces and soaking overnight, then backwashing the following morning.
