Gravity Filter / Purifier Sediment Filter

 To meet the need to extend gravity system candle/element cleaning intervals we have configured this high quality polyester fabric 1 micron pleated sediment filter as a great solution to pre filter water prior to filling a gravity water filter of any kind to assist in premature blockage of carbon block filters. Some suburbs or towns experience high sediment issues in their water supply compared to some areas that are not such a problem varying the need to prefilter. Many sediment filters used prior to a carbon block filter are generally 1-5 micron, so 1 micron is at the better end of the scale while still achieving a high flow and very much ultimately extending the cleaning intervals of a gravity system that can slow the flow, maintaining excellent purification speed for a much longer period.
