In order to protect your water supply from harmful sediments, your filtration system needs to have an internal support system that ensures dirt and sediments cannot pass through, even when broken down to their finest stage. The Pre-Filter Sediment Filter provides an in depth process when filtering your water supply to ensure sediments cannot pass through and that the filtration system itself is kept preserved and self-sufficient! To expedite this process effectively, this sediment pre filter system uses a three-step process to function productively. During this three-step process, your water supply is being filtered before it enters your direct path to ensure that every drop of water you use is as clean and safe as possible. The Pre-Filter Sediment Filter is a low-maintenance system that comes fully equipped with a self-backwashing Micropressor Control, which means that contaminants are automatically removed from the filter bed and washed down the drain with the rest of the sediments and bacteria!
