Thread: Heard anything about ClearPro?

    Heard anything about ClearPro?

    Just wondering if anyone knows anything about the "ClearPro" that Pentair is offering as an option for their sand filters. Does anyone know if that option is even available yet? I have noticed that there is sometimes a marketing blitz way before the product is available for sale. Thanks!

    Hi, Rocky,

    Haven't heard of it. What is it supposed to do?

    According to the Pentair website, its a "double secret" process of some sort that improves filtration by 60% over the regular sand filter. It is an option and it looks like it is available on most sand models they offer. The problem is....my PB and his supplier don't know anything about it and the pool equipment websites that I have found do not offer the option. I suspect that marketing is ahead of production again.

    They use special laterals in a sand filter to supposedly improve filtering dramatically. See here for what little information there is.

    snip from site: " The ClearPro™ secret is a proprietary, porous tube that water must pass through before re-entering the pool. It creates a final barrier to the very smallest particles that sand cannot trap, including the finest dust particles, algae and pollens. The result is water that’s 60% cleaner than with any other sand filter. Put another way…the best water quality with the most user-friendly, lowest maintenance solution. "

    Reminds me of an RO filter but w/o the continuous waste outflow. The passage "holes" are obviously larger too. You must have to open & flush out the tube periodically.

    I am interested in buying it too, but would need more info than that! Hope others post what they find out on it...
    Regards!
