INFUSED MEDIA PADS
All our media pads EXCEPT the AMMONIA pad are safe for fresh and salt water.
Acurel media pads are 2x thicker and more rigid than most of the pads on the market today. This results in better performance due to tighter fit, less flex under pressure, fewer leaks, and longer life of the pad.
