Applications Filtration and treatment of water for private and public water supplies, also industrial applications where suspended solids need to be removed. The Filpumps Water Filter is designed to remove small particles of silt and sand, which can cause damage to washing machine valves, showers and other plumbing fitments. These housings are usually supplied with a cartridge which filters down to 5 microns (5/1000ths millimeter). This unit is always installed before fitting a UV water steriliser or pH filter. General Description Our range of durable high quality filter housings can be installed with your choice of filter cartridge that best suits your application. Most water treatment applications on private water supplies benefit from a two-stage filtration process which vastly improves water quality and extends the life expectancy of filter cartridges. Our standard recommendation for filter cartridge selection for most private water supplies is a 30 or 50 micron pleated high surface area first treatment stage cartridge, followed by a high efficiency 5 micron polypropylene depth filter cartridge as the final treatment stage which will provide you with an excellent treated water quality in terms of suspended solids present. The clear filter bowl design allows the user to observe the condition of the filter cartridge and replace or clean as necessary. Each filter housing is supplied with a wall mount bracket for ease of installation and a wrench which provides easy filter disassembly without damage to the components.
