Triton® C and C-3 sand filters are designed for high efficiency and easy maintenance in high capacity commercial pool applications. A unique internal design levels the sand bed and produces an even water flow for the most efficient filtration possible. Our multi-diffuser system and slotted layer design gives the Triton C superior filtration capacity and flow for longer cycles between cleanings, which significantly reduces operating costs. Three-inch bulkheads (C-3 models) cut friction loss in half, and flanged connections don’t require special adapters. And the Triton C Series is engineered with singlepiece tanks for superior strength, and made from the toughest materials available to withstand harsh chemicals and weather.
Capable of increased flow rates to 20 gpm per square foot of filter media, these filters are ideal for commercial applications and tandem installations when several filters are required.
The Triton® Heavy Duty (HD) filter is a thirty-inch fiberglass filter that offers a maximum operating pressure of 75 PSI. This filter is
specifically designed for special high-pressure commercial applications that require up to 98 gpm, and is ideal for all heavy-duty commercial applications.

How many lbs of pea gravel should be added to the bottom of this filter to support the laterals?
Hi Brian, if you will be using pea gravel with this filter you will need 150 lbs of gravel and 450 lbs of sand.
Is there a benefit to using a combination of pea gravel and sand versus all sand in the Pentair Triton C?
There is a benefit to using pea gravel and sand versus sand only. The pea gravel at the bottom of the filter will provide more support for the laterals.
(5 out of 5 stars) Nice size filter with several good features.

This is a beast compared to the ones available at local pool supply stores. Local shops are geared toward smaller pools and spas 30,000 gals or less. After my remodel mine is now over 40,000. This is about the bare minimum for a pool of that size but it should work far better than what I had before. I was a little concerned about it being a truck freight only item but it arrived on time and undamaged. It comes in a very big box but it is plastic so it doesn't weigh much. I was able to put it on a hand truck and easily move it into position. The side mounted valve placement gives it a lower profile and the top mounted gauge is easy to see.
