How to determine when to replace our media system?
This can depend upon many factors including operation and maintenance of related filter components. As a standard rule-of-thumb, the filter media products should be replaced every 10-12 years. The media particles have a tendency to round-off from attrition and lose its cleansing effectiveness. The media can also increase in size due to the build-up of chemicals and polymer on a granule.
