Aqua Comb Cartridge Filter CleanerItem #: 81600
The Aqua Comb Cartridge Filter Cleaning Tool cleans pool and spa filter cartridges in as little as 5 minutes. The Aqua Comb with Short Forks is designed for cartridge filters with filter pleats around 3/4" to 1 1/4" deep. The Aqua Comb with Short Forks will work on filters with a smaller or larger pleat depths as well. The Aqua Comb is the perfect tool to get deep down into the filter pleats of pool and spa cartridge filters to remove the stuck in debris such as bugs, vegetation and other debris that accumulates in your filter.
The Aqua Comb is made in the USA. The valve and comb are made of Acetal plastic, which is so strong, that you can actually bend over the forks and not break them. The nut and handle are high strength ABS plastic. The handle wall thickness is 1/8â to 3/16â thick UV protected plastic. The handle is a one-piece design and parts are press-fit together and there are no glues, solvents, screws and / or fasteners used for assembly. The hose seal is made of Silicone and the nut is free-spinning. If you have a stiff hose the Aqua Comb will rotate around but will not leak! The Aqua Comb has a 304 S.S. 30 mesh screen molded into the silicone hose seal that will hold back anything in the hose that would otherwise plug the holes.
Before the Aqua Comb all other cartridge filter cleaning devices were or are just different forms of sprayers. The Aqua Comb combines a 3â wide flat spray with a 9-finger comb that opens the pleats for a deep clean and allows you to dig out impacted debris, so you can achieve maximum filtration results.
