Over the past four years Pleatco Pool & Spa filter cartridges made with Pleatco Advanced Point Bonded Filtration Fabric™ have become the new standard in pool and spa filtration. However, with the mantra of “constant improvement” the Pleatco team continues to push the boundaries of filtration technology and has developed new “Pleatco Advanced Ultra™“, the revolutionary next step in innovative pool filtration.

Pleatco Advanced Ultra is driven by revolutionary patent pending technology – “Pleatco Pure Pleat™“. Pure Pleat is a new feature that keeps the pleats of the cartridge rigid and evenly spaced, enhancing flow dynamics and optimizing performance. This is a completely new band-less cartridge design truly in a category of its own. 

Pleatco has implemented a sophisticated manufacturing process enabling us to produce the first band-less pool cartridge to create perfect pleats for easier cleaning and greater performance. This maintains the pleats vertical alignment and keeps pleats evenly spaced relative to each other. While in action a cartridges’ pleats begin to load under elevated water flow. With a standard filter cartridge under pressure, the flow favors the path of least resistance causing pleats to bunch up, bypassing some filtration fabric. 

With Pleatco Advanced Ultra with Pleatco Pure Pleat, the flow is systemically distributed by evenly spaced ridged pleats with no bunching up, using the maximum available filtration fabric.”After extensive laboratory and in the field testing, Pleatco Advanced Ultra rated significantly higher in dirt holding capacity than any other.


Pleatco Advanced Ultra delivers ultra-long cycle times requiring far less maintenance than completive cartridges. It has taken over three years to develop, truly test and prepare Pleatco Advanced Ultra for the market. Pleatco stands behind the honest fact that Pleatco Advanced Ultra Pool & Spa Filter cartridges featuring Pleatco Advanced Point Bonded Filtration Fabrics and Free Flow Core Technology hold more dirt, are easier to maintain, provide greater flow, save energy and last longer… and we have the research and results to prove it.
