He began working at McNasby's Oyster Company at age 10, and he has seen the oyster harvests plummet over the decades. Art has also noticed dramatic changes in the clarity of water, the difficulty of crabbing, and amount of overall pollution in the Bay. Learn more at www.chesapeakebay.net Produced by Matt Rath

          Waterco’s Glass Pearls offer much finer filtration than other alternatives and are therefore capable of providing outstanding water purity and clarity (filtration below 3 microns). They also require 20 per cent less water for backwashing compared to sand. Ultimate water purity “Whereas other filter media may contain different contaminants, Waterco’s Glass Pearls are chemically inert for the ultimate water purity,” “In fact, Waterco’s Glass Pearls have been independently lab tested for leaching contaminants and found to be well within Australian Drinking Water Guidelines.” At only 0.6mm by 0.8mm in size, the narrow particle size of the Glass Pearls enables in-depth superior filtration. The spherical shape also results in low friction levels, also reducing the need to backwash and saving pool owners both time and precious water. Ultimate safety Not only that, Glass Pearls are safe to handle and safe to service, “Unlike crushed glass, Glass Pearls are spherical and do not have sharp edges, making them really safe to use. And if there’s ever a failure of the filter’s laterals and glass Pearls flow into the swimming pool, they pose no risk of injury to swimmers.” Ultimate time saving Glass Pearls are also easy to install, enabling a rapid start up of the media filter. Plus its high purity means very little backwashing is required to cleanse the filter media prior to commissioning the filter.

Adam Davis from the Chesapeake Research Consortium explains, and uses a secchi disc to measure water clarity in Spa Creek. Learn more at www.chesapeakebay.net.
