5 micron Sediment Water Filter:
replacement cartridge for LOWEST COST Water Filter
All orders shipped freight free – anywhere in Australia.
The 5 micron Sediment Filter is the standard replacement cartridge for our LOWEST COST WATER FILTER.
High performance 5 micron polyspun sediment water filter with good flow rate. Carries a heavy load of dirt,sediment, rust, sand & algae before replacement.
This sediment filter is 10″ Big Blue sizing (10″ x 4.5″)- fits all standard sized 10″BB water filter housings. Rated 5 micron for relatively fine filtration, and is very suited to partner carbon filters for tank water standard Sediment/Carbon filtration.
For example use this 5 micron sediment filter as a pre filter in front of a 5 micron carbon in “whole of house” tank water filtration systems, for clean, clear water. When used before a carbon filter, it extends the life of the carbon cartridge by removing the sediment load.
High flow rates & low pressure drop characterize this sediment filter, and bacteria do not colonize the polyspun filter media as much as some alternatives.
How often do I need to change my sediment filter?
Key factors of water quality and water quantity used are site specific for families relying on tank water, and these directly determine when replacement water filters are required.
Manufacturers recommend annual water filter cartridge replacement.
But our rural water filters are often made to work hard because of variable water quality.
Many tank water users will be familiar with reduced water quality at certain times of the year.
Heavy rainfall events may also stir up tank sediment for example.
You may notice a change in water taste and/or smell.
And perhaps reduced clarity even after filtering.
Both are direct indicators of the need for replacement water filter cartridges.
Water pressure loss in the house: slow running kitchen tap/ reduced shower pressure.
This indicates the current filter cartridge is loaded, and should be quickly replaced.
Depending on water quality/water usage, the above indicators may well occur before the manufacturer’s 12 month replacement guideline.
And after 12 months, some water filter cartridges may hold a bacterial slime which will choke off water throughput, leading to pressure loss at the tap.
Sediment filter removes Sediment, Rust, Algae, Sand and Dirt down to 5 micron, & fits all 10″ x 4.5″ housings. Replacement cartridge for Lowest Cost Water Filter.
Or use in conjunction with 5 micron carbon filter for “whole house” water filtration, e.g. Low Cost Water Filter.
This Replacement Cartridge is also available in a 1 micron option. https://saferwater.com.au/shop/1-micron-sediment-water-filter-big-blue/
