Slow sand filters use rather fine sand (less than 0.5 mm) and generally give the best removal performance of all granular media filters. This is only partly due to the low filtration rate and small filter grains, since in many cases there is significant biological action, restricted to a fairly thin layer at the surface – the Schmutzdecke.
