Harmsco Hurricane Filter Housing with Supertuf Cartridge
Harmsco Hurricane filters provide unsurpassed performance because they separate dense solids prior to cartridge filtration for extended filter life, increased dirt holding capacity and reduced maintenance costs. By combining two proven technologies and one new technology, Harmsco has created a line of swimming pool filters that is the benchmark of swimming pool filtration.
Result: a cartridge that needs to be cleaned one third as often as conventional filters of the same size! Supertuffilters from 20 microns down to 3-5 microns.
Harmsco Up-Flow Cartridge Filters were patented and introduced to the market in 1968. Almost immediately, people in the filtration industry took note of the many advantages Harmsco Filters provide. As a result, sales began to accelerate.
In 1972 we developed a complete line of filter cartridges to market with Harmsco filter housings. John Harms wasn't satisfied, however, with conventional filter cartridges that provide marginal performance. John pioneered pleated polyester filter cartridges, which outperform conventional cartridges by lowering filtration costs. In 1991, Harold (Hank) Harms II was elected President of Harmsco, Inc. During Hank's tenure as President and owner, there have been significant developments: Hurricane filters were introduced in 1992 and became an overnight success; marketing activities have been accelerated; expansion has been made to plant and facilities; as well as the addition of 90,000 square feet in Lake Wales, FL.
Today, we are a market leader in the water filtering industry. Our products are marketed through an extensive network of distributors located worldwide, and our dedication to research and development is ongoing, so our growth will continue into the 21st century.
