• Water enters the filter chamber on the outside of the discs. The water then flows through the disc pack between the interlocked serrations of the discs. After flowing through the serrations the water then flows through the hollow center of the discs and out to the field
• Back wash is accomplished by opening the cap. When the cap is opened the flow is reversed, water enters into the hollow area of the disc stack causing the stack of discs to lengthen and discs separate from one another. Water then freely flows outward pushing all dirt caught between the discs to a dump line. Additionally, water is sprayed through nozzles inside the disc stack aimed outwards causing the discs to spin and rub against each other further cleaning the discs.
• The separation of the discs and the spinning action is the secret of the disc filter. This method of flushing is almost instantaneous requiring only a few seconds to fully clean the dirt off the discs. No other filtration system can equal the speed and thoroughness of the disc filter back wash
