Kickin’ it old school with New Technology!
Introducing Dr. Dryden’s Activate Dual Grade Filter Media!
Activate was invented by Marine Biologist, Dr. Dryden. Activate is a permanent glass filter media designed to provide consumers with cleaner, healthier water. This activated permanent filter media, made from recycled glass, goes through a patented process of decontamination, sterilization, shaping and activation. The glass is non-porous and very hard; it will not physically break down, unlike sand.
Activate exceeds the performance of quartz and glass sand by filtering about 30% more organics, restraining the formation of biofilm. With lower running costs and better performance, less chlorine will be consumed while simultaneously reducing about 50% of disinfection by-products. Activate also sustainably controls heavy metals and metalloids, such as iron, arsenic and manganese. Activate is a lifetime media – no media change is necessary!
ACTIVATE comes in two different grades – COARSE (Grade 2) and FINE (Grade 1). Use ACTIVATE COARSE on the bottom of the filter and ACTIVATE FINE as a top layer. Once ACTIVATE is installed, back-wash the filter 3 times prior to use.
Dr. Dryden’s ACTIVATE is provided in sealed bags ready for use. Follow the sand filter manufacturer’s instructions for filing the filter with sand and follow the steps below to determine the right amount of Dr. Dryden’s ACTIVATE for your filter.
