Sediment Filter Characteristics
- Uses small pore size to remove/reduce silt, sand and other particulate.
- Sediment filters have a finite holding capacity and is based on the size of the filter and the concentration of particulates in the water. Water with high particulate concentration usually has high turbidity (cloudiness). When the sediment filter becomes saturated, the pressure may increase sufficient to cause the pump to shut off.
- Best practice to place the sediment filter up stream from the ceramic filter to reduce premature fouling of the ceramic filter.
- Sediment filter should not be relied on to remove bacteria, virus or cysts.
Activated Carbon Filter Characteristics
- Uses adsorption to remove/reduce chlorine, chlorine by-products and carbon based volatile organic compounds (VOCs) including herbicides, pesticides, radon from water, unpleasant taste and odor.
- Activated Carbon does not remove bacteria
- Activated Carbon filters have a finite holding capacity and is based on the size of the filter and the concentration of contaminants in the water. When the activated carbon becomes saturated, contaminants can flow from the carbon back into the solution.
- Best practice to place the carbon filter down stream from the ceramic filter to prevent fouling of the carbon filter adsorption sites and prevent microbial contamination of the activated carbon.
- Activated carbon filter should be removed from housing and allowed to dry between uses if longer than 72 hours. The first several gallons of water pumped should be discarded upon initial and reuse of the filter.
