City Water or Municipal Water Systems

If you are on a city water supply and just want to remove moderate amounts of dirt or sediment, or even rust and iron from the old city water pipes, use a replaceable in line cartridge style filter. You will see some listed below with prices. The 20" long sediment filter is always a good choice as you don't have to replace it as often as a 10" filter. Use the higher flow 20" filter (4.5" dia.) for bigger homes with more bathrooms and homes that have higher water pressure and flow rates. If you think you may have 15 GPM of flow or more, you must use the larger 20" cartridge filter (4.5" dia). If you want to remove chlorine from the water as well, then the carbon cartridge version is best. Many people with large amounts of dirt and chlorine in their city water use both filters together. Putting a sediment filter in front of a carbon filter may greatly increase the life of the carbon filter. Disposable carbon water filters are more expensive than disposable sediment water filters. If you have what you consider massive amounts of chlorine or dirt and sediment, then a backwashing type automatic water filter system may be best.

Private Home Well Water Systems

It is usually best to use backwashing filter tanks when dealing with private well water dirt and sediment issues. Private wells are rarely chlorinated so you must backwash these type of filters regularly. Most of our filters backwash automatically so there is virtually no maintenance involved. You just set it up and it takes care of itself. If it is just dirt and sediment, then the backwashing sediment filter is a great choice. If you have iron, sulfur or manganese as well in the water, then the Terminox®ISM well water filter is best. The Terminox®ISM removes many different substances without the use of salt, chemicals and additives. It is virtually maintenance free. Terminox® removes iron, sulfur, manganese, sediments and dirt, turbidity and even strong chemicals like chlorine or bleach. You will see both the automatic backwashing style sediment filters and the Fully Automatic BackWashing Terminox®ISM iron, sulfur and manganese filters listed for sale below.

Terminox® ISM Iron Filter

Our Terminox® ISM iron water filters feature a energy saving 12v power supply, along with a state of the art polyethylene lined, fiberglass wound mineral tank. Compare to iron filters costing three times as much or more. We feature only the very best top of the line, name brand water filters. This iron, sulfur and manganese filtering conditioner is our most popular whole house iron removal water filter. It works great on sprinkler systems too.

Sediment Filters and Backwashing Sediment Filter Tanks


For serious sediment removal: A large 20" x 2.75" filter. Why use so many of those small 10" filters when this one lasts so long? Replacement filters are cheap and last a long time. Easy to install. Heavy duty cartridge housing will last for years and years and the sediment filter itself (5 micron) is included. 3/4" w/ pressure relief. For really tough applications one of the 15 or 30 micron "spin down" or "trapper" filters (shown below) before this filter is a popular application.
