AstralPool’s CA Media Filter is 100% designed and made in Australia from the most advanced injection moulding and assembly process of any filter. Engineered and designed for high strength, long life, optimal flow rates and easy installation and service the CA Media filter range provides the best value for money and is designed for tough Australian conditions.

The AstralPool CA Media Filter produces crystal clear water using fine sand or recycled crushed glass media as the filter medium. Each filter incorporates an engineered multiport valve to direct the water flow and minimise the resistance through the filter, making the CA Media Filter ideal for today’s energy efficient high performance pumps.

The CA range represents the largest investment in design and production for any residential filter range using high quality hardened steel tooling to produce high tolerance, high strength tanks which provide the longest trouble free life available. This high tolerance enables the screw on lock ring to secure the multiport valve along with self-sealing barrel unions which enable fast, simple installation, easy service and access to the filter media in future years

The CA range is available in 4 models complete with 6 way multiport valve, pressure gauge and air release, barrel unions and backwash sight glass. AstralPool CA Media Filters are perfect to combine with Viron Glass filter media for clean, healthy and sparkling pool water!

Sand Filter Installation Guide

While installing a new sand filter seems like a daunting task due to its size, it’s actually quite simple to do if you have the right tools and the right know-how. 

  • Turn off the pump and close off any valves. 
  • If you’re replacing an existing sand filter, first remove the sand by scooping it out or using a venturi pump before attempting to remove the shell. We’re talking about a lot of sand so for safety’s sake, please remove all of the sand before taking out the old sand filter. 
  • If you’re replacing a cartridge filter, simply unscrew the old filter and remove. 
  • If you don’t have unions installed in your current setup, it’s a good idea to have some installed while you’re replacing your current filter. 
  • Make any plumbing changes to fit your new sand filter. 
  • Screw in any unions and plumbing connections. 
  • Fill the sand filter up about halfway with water before adding in the sand to prevent damage to your sand filter’s internals. 
  • Once the sand is in, secure the multiport and attach all required plumbing lines. 
  • Set the multiport to backwash and turn on the pump. Run on backwash for a couple of minutes then turn off your pump. Set to rinse, run the pump for about a minute or so. 
  • Your new sand filter is now ready to use!
