This cartridge features a unique multi-depth poly sediment filter. This filter uses the entire depth of its media by trapping the largest sediment particles on the outside of the filter, then gradually stepping down the size of particles it will reject as the water moves closer to the core of the filter. The outer layer is rated at 70 microns. The subsequent layers are rated at 50 microns, 20 microns, and finally 10 microns. The result is a longer filter life and higher flow rates (less pressure drop). The polypropylene media is highly resistant to bacteria, making this an excellent choice for well water treatment applications. This system also makes a popular choice for well water owners requiring filtration down to a level of 5 microns for a whole house UV sterilizer, especially where elevated levels of organic contaminants are present (organic contaminants can absorb UV light). This filter offers an excellent flow performance relative to most competitors' models.
