Atlas looked at the features of the THS horizontal sand filter, and decided it was a perfect fit for his business, especially with renovations where price and quick availability of the product always seem to be important. There has long been a need within the large pool industry for being able to filter more square footage with a fewer number of filters. This, of course, cuts down on equipment costs. Also, there is the concern on almost every large pool project about where the filters will be housed. Pentair had this in mind when designing the Two-Head Smoothie. The THS is designed to conserve space, which makes it ideal for smaller equipment rooms and getting through doors.
It is also designed to filter better. The THS’s longer sand bed allows for more filter area, up to twenty-seven square feet, which greatly improves filtration. It is no secret that pool contractors and builders prefer sand filters because they are exceptionally easy to maintain while providing extremely efficient, effective filtration.
