prefilteringWhether installing a Water Softener , an Ultra Violet Sterilisation system, an Iron and Manganese filter , it is always advised to add a sediment prefilter to protect the treatment equipment from unnecessary sediment debris or particles. This is especially needed from water supplied from a private well. There are 4 main option for the sediment prefilter protection ranging in sizes from 10"x2.5" , 10"x4.5",20"x2.5" to 20"x4.5". There are 3 types of sediment particle filters we use - PP Spun Melted , String Wound Cartridges or Pleated Cartridges.

The quality of the water supply going into the system will determine the size and cartridge type advised. The sediment filter will be changed periodically and is relatively inexpensive to do so. For the benefit of protecting the water treatment equipment added to the relatively inexpensive cost , it makes sense to add a prefilter.

We can advise you on the prefilter micron rating required for your water. In some cases , more than one stage of prefiltering is used but generally never more than 3 stages. If using more than one stage, the higher micron rating cartridge will be the first cartridge the water goes through then down to the lower micron rating cartridge. This allows for maximum efficiency and longevity from the cartridges absorbing the sediment particles.
