Very few businesses are more water-dependent than greenhouses and nurseries. Many of them pump water from a local pond, river, or well, bringing up sand and sediment along with the water. Screen and cartridge filters constantly need to be disassembled for cleaning, sometimes as often as once an hour. Injector fertilizers also plug up with dirt, making manual cleaning a daily routine. Foggers and misters become obsolete without clean water.
TEKLEEN® filters form low cost, fully automatic self-cleaning filtration systems that require no maintenance or attendance. Within seconds and without interrupting the main flow, vacuum nozzles aggressively suction dirt from the inside of the screen, flushing it out to the drain using just 4 gallons of water.

Ulery Greenhouse, Springfield, Ohio, has had a TEKLEEN filter for about 1 1/2 years, with no major problems. “The only thing you need to do is change the battery in it once a year, because it automatically backflushes,” says Ashley Smith, grower.
