Sediment filters are commonly used as pre-filters in reverse osmosis (RO) systems to remove larger impurities from the water before it enters the RO membrane. Available in different micron ratings, such as 0.5, 1, 5, 10, 20, and 50 microns. The micron rating refers to the size of particles the filter can effectively capture. Made from 100% pure polypropylene.
Sediment filters are particularly effective at removing sand, dust, rust, silt, and other larger particles from the water. By removing these impurities, sediment filters help protect and prolong the lifespan of the RO membrane & DI resin, which are critical components of the RO system.
For RO systems, the most popular micron ratings for sediment filters are typically 1 or 5 microns. These ratings provide a good balance between effective filtration and reasonable water flow rates.
Sediment filters designed for RO systems come in a universal size of 10 inches, which means they can fit into standard 10-inch filter housings. This allows them to be compatible with various brands and models of RO systems that utilize such housings.
*Replace every 4-12 months depending on usage and water quality.
