Hurricane Water Filters - The stainless steel filter housings are an integral part of the filtration system for the 100,000-gallon conservation tank. These revolutionary upflow filters create a rotational flow in the outer chamber to separate out the heavier particles. The inner chamber houses an angled, pleated cartridge, which filters out the finer suspended material. The water is cycled every four hours, and this ensures that the tank is kept crystal clear and free from unwanted debris.
