Yardney Introduces the SM‑400 to its Popular Line of Sand Media Filters

The SM-400 includes two 6-inch drain ports that translate into less labor for service technicians when replacing media. A removable underdrain through the 6-inch drain ports also makes maintenance of the tanks easier than before. With this new product offering, Yardney offers upgraded product options within a more competitive price structure. Customers can select from two underdrain product options—a standard underdrain or optional cross-flow underdrain.
