Manage Filter Backwash

During a filter backwash cycle, the internal structure must efficiently balance air and water, regardless of changing flow rates or seasonal water temperature fluctuations. If not, conventional filter backwash cycles will be ineffective, maldistribution of water will lead to poor washing, and your system’s effectiveness will be undermined.

Affordable Solution

Roberts many years of experience with designing and producing new products, affords Roberts to be a leader in the industry. Although not being the first to introduce Trilateral®, at Roberts, we study, evaluate, and Improve where we see a product lacking the final designs to make the product reliable.


Combined with a reinforced porous plate and long-lasting material, the Trilateral® plastic underdrain filter is the industry’s most reliable and economical solution.
