ClearPlus MicroTurb™ Series Turbidity
Reduction Filters w/ NextSand

highly effective and economical sediment / turbidity / particulate reduction filters with higher flow rates, lower backwash rates, and finer filtration than the competition!

MicroTurb Turbidity and Sediment Reduction

ClearPlus MicroTurb Series particulate reduction filters are designed for convenient, automated turbidity and sediment reduction treatment without the need to replace filters. MicroTurb filters backwash automatically as required to prevent clogging. The backwash is carefully controlled by a digital control valve which comes pre-programmed for your convenience.

All MicroTurb systems utilize NextSand media, the world's most advanced turbidity reduction media. In addition to providing much finer filtration than traditional sand and multi-media filters, NextSand requires less backwash rate and volume, has higher service flow rates for a given volume of media, and it costs less too! It also outperforms FilterAg, FilterAg+, MicroZ, FilterZ and all other turbidity media. Nothing outperforms NextSand!

All MicroTurb systems are optimally designed to ensure that you can achieve the peak performance out of your NextSand media. Sadly, many of our competitors ignore the manufacturer's optimization specifications when they design their systems. Accordingly, their systems do not contain sufficient media to achieve the fine filtration capabilities of NextSand, or they contain too much media relative to the tank size thereby inhibiting the backwash process and causing premature clogging.


MicroTurb Systems are designed to backwash periodically to eject trapped sediment and particulates. Accordingly, the control valve is connected to a drain and the backwash water together with the rejected contaminants are simply discharged to the drain during the backwash process. The backwash is controlled by the Fleck 5800 SXT digital control valve and is generally programmed to occur in the middle of the night (fully adjustable) when you are not likely to be using any water. In a typical residential application, the NextSand media should be replaced approximately every 5 years to maintain optimal performance.


We provide a standard stainless steel bypass valve with each system. The bypass valve has female 3/4" or 1" NPT threaded fittings depending on the model selected. If your pipe diameter is different, you can connect to the bypass with simple adapters available at any hardware store.

The MicroTurb system is generally designed to be the first stage of treatment in any water treatment system.
