What Does a Sediment Filter Reduce?



Soil decomposition or organic decay can lead to dirt in water supplies.



Coastal water supplies and well water can be contaminated with sand.



Dust particles from pipes and other sources can enter drinking water.



This system reduces other particles too large to fit through the 5-micron-sized  openings in the filter.

Frequently Asked Questions

What model is right for me?

The BB10 is ideal for homes that have one to three bathrooms. The BB20 is the right choice for homes with four to six bathrooms.

Why is the pre-filter housing blue and not clear?

Clear housing allows light to penetrate the housing, which can cause algae to grow. A blue, non-transparent housing prevents light from interacting with the water.

Where do I mount the system?

The entire pre-filter system mounts to the wall near the entry point of the water into the home using the provided bracket and screws for easy installation.
