Betterfit Element Selector!
The former Betafit line will now be called Betterfit, and will incorporate an exclusive outer wrap that not only improves performance, but also provides quality protection. It features a unique oval-hole design that improves flow for more efficient filtration, ensuring long system life and cost-savings. Look for this change to start taking effect after December 15th. This process will happen gradually, as we use up current inventory.
