The performance of your filtration equipment can be significantly affected by the media you choose and how often you clean your system, particularly when it comes to your Defender® filter.
Not all perlite is the same. Did you know generic perlite can have HIGH FLOAT? Float is the non-functional waste that doesn’t coat the filter elements and will impact filter performance. High float causes bleed-through and short filter cycles. Generic perlite also tends to have HIGH PERMEABILITY and cannot filter down to 1 micron. Using the recommended Harborlite® AP perlite media will ensure you are getting a perlite with low float content. This equates to maximized filter performance, enhanced element coating, maximized oil removal, removal of particles down to one micron in size, and achieves 25-30% longer filter cycles (according to current Defender system operators).
