The Typhoon cyclonic pre-filter from CircuPool is the ultimate time-saver.

Using your existing pump and filter, the Typhoon turns your ordinary equipment into a sophisticated two-stage filtration system that delivers sparkling clear pool water and all but eliminates filter cleanings. With no moving parts to wear out and no electrical components, the Typhoon literally spins the dust and dirt out of your pool water using cyclone water flow.

Installation is an easy, ten minute do-it-yourself project for most homeowners. The Typhoon mounts on top of your pump so it fits right in to any equipment pad and, the 2 inch threaded couplings ensure free-flow operation on all pools.

Certified salt-pool safe: Compatible with all types of pumps and filters.

How It Works: Using similar vortex technology found in modern cyclonic home vacuum cleaners, the Typhoon removes most of the dirt from the water before it even reaches your filter. The TJ-16 has sixteen independent centrifugal chambers that spin-away impurities from the water, working most effectively on dense debris (debris that sinks). Its clear chamber lets you see how effective it is, and it can be cleaned in moments just by briefly opening its purge valve. Works great with any filter type; cartridge, sand, or Diatomacios Earth. The latest and greatest technology for pools- your pool store might not even know about it!

Q: If used with a de filter, would you need to add a bypass to add DE?

Asked by: Jim Jackson - 3/22/2020
A: Yes, that is a good way to plumb it so that it eliminates the chance of your DE powder getting captured by the prefilter.

Q: I am running a test system with high algae content. I want to remove fines, but not necessarily all the algae. Can your cyclonic separator be run without the filter cartridge?

Asked by: Dave - 1/22/2020
A: Sure, this doesn't include a filter cartridge and if you don't want one then that would be a pretty common situation when used for aquaponics or something similiar.
