AFM® NG-Next Generation Gains NSF®50 and NSF 61 Approval…Research Shows Sub-Micron Filtration-Now for ALL Brands of Filters.

By March 4th, 2022No Comments

We know that AFM® is awesome and works great in providing drinking water quality pool water while saving 50% of backwash water. How do we know? You’ve told us so, and in almost every single installation the owners, operators, and patrons of these pools have remarked on how good the water looks and feels. What they don’t see, is that AFM® is also rated to last the life of the filter… so you won’t need to go through the disruption and expensive mess associated with changing your sand media every 3-5 years. We owe this all to the incredible solar-powered manufacturing facility that converts recycled brown and green glass bottles into the most advanced, electrically activated filter media in the industry. 

These tremendous accolades were primarily for the original AFM® Activated Filter Media – which was rated to provide filtration down to 1-4 microns… which is unheard of with other granular media, like sand, which are typically rated for 20-microns – allowing 1-19 Micron-sized particles to pass through over and over again.  

We are proud to announce that AFM® Next Generation or NG media has now received NSF® (National Sanitation Foundation) approval for use on both pools (NSF®50), and drinking water (NSF61) systems. This represents a huge accomplishment, but it was well deserved. Why? IFTS industry research shows that AFM® NG now filters down to a sub-micron (less than 1-micron) level…making all other traditional granular and glass medias virtually obsolete. Combine that with ease of installation, ease of use, the self-sterilizing surface which is resistant to bacterial growth, the longevity, and all the water savings… so you have a can’t-miss modernization that will instantly improve the water quality of any pool and spa. 

As an added benefit, NSF® has approved AFM® as an acceptable media in all sizes and brands of granular media (sand) filters, meaning that you won’t need to seek a letter from each manufacturer approving its use before you convert. 

AFM® is affordable and readily available at all CES locations, and our team is ready to help you convert your pool filtration to drinking water specifications quickly and easily.

At this rate, we all might need for everyone to drink a little more bottled beer.
