The Defender® Regenerative Media Filter produced by leading commercial pool filtration systems manufacturer Neptune-Benson has been chosen as a finalist for the 2013 Smart Approved Product of the Year award.

The Smart Approved WaterMark was created in response to the challenge of reducing per-capita urban water consumption across Australia. The purpose is to reduce water consumption through the promotion of products and services that help conserve water use.

Design is the product easy to use, install and well-designed?

Marketability what is the price point, affordability and packaging of the product?
