How it works
When the sediment filter is activated, the water and sediment swirl around the inside of the cover at high speed. The heavier contaminants spin out to the wall of the cover and drop down out of the water current.
The filtered water then flows through the filter screen and out of the filter body.
The screen will stop any lightweight particles suspended in the water, which are discharged. You can flush away accumulated matter in the cover or on the screen by opening the flush valve while the unit is in operation.
What types of sediment does this filter reduce?
This unique filtration technology is sized to handle many types of sediment, including: shale, shell, debris, pipe scale, and sand/grit (coarse, fine, and very fine).
How often will I need to replace the filter?
The design of the Spin-Down Sediment & Sand Filter System allows you to clean and reuse the filter repeatedly. You will only need to replace the filter at the end of its usable lifecycle. This will happen when you notice a distinct change in water pressure and flow, even with regular flushing and cleaning of your sediment filter. Your filter life will vary based on the concentration of sediment in your water supply.
What can I do to filter particles smaller than 152 microns?
For smaller particles, we recommend our Sediment & Prefilter System (Models BB10 and BB20). These advanced prefilter systems reduce particles as small as 5 microns.
