It has three bands to keep the pleats separated instead of two, an advantage. When I clean the filter, I stand it on end, then turn it over and clean it again. The words on the bands help me to remember when I have cleaned it twice. I clean 180 degrees of the filter at a time using the words on the end caps as a...
