These Filters are designed to be used as a pre-filter – prior to water passing through an RO (Reverse Osmosis) membrane, this protects the RO by preventing dirt, dust or rocks from entering it. This will help keep your RO’s working for longer periods of time by extending its lifespan
What is a Sediment Filter?
Sediment Filters are pre-filters designed to catch debris, such as dirt, dust or sand. Sediment is usually described as visible matter that settles at the bottom of liquid – such as rocks, dust or dirt.
How do they work?
These filters use a process called “Mechanical Filtration” – this means that it physically blocks particles from passing through it – as water particles are smaller than dirt, dust or rocks, it prevents them from passing whilst still allowing the water to slip past.
