Sediment Pre-Filter System

Main Content Starts Here


Sediment Prefilter System - 20"

The Pentair Sediment Prefilter System helps protect your water filtration system and home appliances. Stop heavy sediment, dirt, and particulates as small as 5 microns from entering your home filtration system, and improve overall performance. Install as a stand-alone filter if your water concern is sediment. Or, install with a whole home filter system to protect your faucets from clogging, damaging your water-using appliances, and for better, more refreshing water and longer-lasting, more reliable system performance.
  • Cartridge-based sediment filtration system ideal for pre-filtration and dirt and debris reduction throughout the whole home.
  • Reduce sediment down to 5 microns in size (that’s 20x smaller than a human hair!)
  • Filter cartridge lasts up to 9 months, depending on source water, average water use and filter size installed
  • Two sizes to choose from to meet the demands of your home
