Quick Overview

The Sta-Rite S8S70 System 3 Sand Filter is designed to remove more dirt and impurities than other leading sand filters which results in pool water that feels fresher and looks more inviting. Sta-Rite System 3 Sand Filters make maintenance easy, cleaning is as simple as applying a little wrist action to the control valve and walking away. And you won't have to do it very often! Through innovative engineering, the filter's dirt-handling capacity is maximized, which pays off in less maintenance.

    Quality Construction – Durable two-piece tank housing constructed of Dura-Glas™, Sta-Rite's industry leading glass-reinforced composite resin
    Innovative Design – The innovative design of the System:3 tank combined with the lateral/hub assembly produces a balanced flow of water and deeper sand bed penetration
    Low Maintenance – The deep sand bed holds more dirt, resulting in longer filter cycles and less cleaning
    Dual Drain Plugs – Side plug helps make sand removal easy, while the bottom plug comes with integral screen for easy draining without the loss of sand
    Sleek Looks – Contemporary style and matte black finish looks attractive in any pool setting
