What is a Sediment filter?

Sediment filters, as the name suggests, remove sediment, dirt, and debris from well water. While sediment filters do not disinfect water themselves, they are key in the disinfection process. When sediment is present in water, it blocks the disinfecting ultraviolet light of UV systems. Because of this, sediment filters must always be paired with a UV system. In fact, sediment filters are used as a prefilter for almost every type of filtration system. Keep in mind that sediment filters possess a high micron rating, so they do not remove chemicals, bacteria, or heavy metals from water.

Sediment filters remove:

  • Sediment
  • Dirt
  • Debris
  • Turbidity (cloudiness)
