The 5 micron Sediment Filter is the standard replacement cartridge for our LOWEST COST WATER FILTER. High performance 5 micron polyspun sediment water filter with good flow rate. Carries a heavy load of dirt,sediment, rust, sand & algae before replacement. This sediment filter is 10" Big Blue sizing (10" x 4.5")- fits all standard sized 10"BB water filter housings. Rated 5 micron for relatively fine filtration, and is very suited to partner carbon filters for tank water standard Sediment/Carbon filtration. For example use this 5 micron sediment filter as a pre filter in front of a 5 micron carbon in "whole of house" tank water filtration systems, for clean, clear water. When used before a carbon filter, it extends the life of the carbon cartridge by removing the sediment load. High flow rates & low pressure drop characterize this sediment filter, and bacteria do not colonize the polyspun filter media as much as some alternatives. How often do I need to change my sediment filter? Key factors of water quality and water quantity used are site specific for families relying on tank water, and these directly determine when replacement water filters are required. Recommendation Manufacturers recommend annual water filter cartridge replacement. But our rural water filters are often made to work hard because of variable water quality. Many tank water users will be familiar with reduced water quality at certain times of the year. Heavy rainfall events may also stir up tank sediment for example. You may notice a change in water taste and/or smell. And perhaps reduced clarity even after filtering. Both are direct indicators of the need for replacement water filter cartridges. Water pressure loss in the house: slow running kitchen tap/ reduced shower pressure. This indicates the current filter cartridge is loaded, and should be quickly replaced. Depending on water quality/water usage, the above indicators may well occur before the manufacturer’s 12 month replacement guideline. And after 12 months, some water filter cartridges may hold a bacterial slime which will choke off water throughput, leading to pressure loss at the tap.

Floating Water Intake video The TANKSTER Floating Water Intake improves tank water quality for rural households by supplying water from ABOVE THE TANK BOTTOM SEDIMENT. This means you drink the FRESHEST, CLEANEST water with the MOST OXYGEN from the TOP of your water column: the water with MINIMUM MICROBES. This really is great idea for the best tank water, and at affordable cost! WHY USE A FLOATING WATER INTAKE?- Rain washes your roof clean of dirt and into your house water tank. This dirt may contain poop from birds, bats, rodents and small animals, together with dead insects and leaf matter. It settles onto the bottom of your water tank. Tank sediment acts as a food for microbes which multiply and remove oxygen from the water. BUT, the pump outlet supplying tank water to your house is located in this bug rich, low oxygen zone, just above the sediment. This means: **We normally drink the poorest quality water from the BOTTOM of the house water tank!!** TANKSTER Floating Water Intake is a flexible water hose with a float at one end, and a connection to the tank outlet at the other end. The TANKSTER acts as a floating water intake for your tank's pump, taking it above the bottom sediment. The Tankster picks up the cleanest and freshest water from the just below the water surface- where the best quality water is located. It works 24/7 : whatever the tank water depth! Benefits The best tasting, freshest water is supplied to your house Cleaner, sweeter drinking water, with less bugs Floating water intake delivers the best quality water whatever the tank depth No loss of water pressure Automatic operation Because the floating water intake picks up the cleanest water - with less sediment - your pump shows less wear. Reduced blocking of washing machine & dishwasher filters, and irrigation nozzles Longer life of household drinking water filters Features Economical way improve tank water quality for all rural households TANKSTER Floating Water Intake can be fitted to any tank outlet, ( including UNDERGROUND** tanks: requires **Check Valve), and comes with an easily adapted 1 ½” (40mm) hose end fitting Safe construction: 2.5m of food grade suction hose, non toxic fittings and stainless steel connectors Inexpensive 10 year guarantee Designed & manufactured in Australia Standard Installation Instructions ( above ground tanks): Water Tank must be empty, ( or near empty) for good access to outlet pipe fitting inside tank Two people for safety Torch, ladder, and maybe a pipe wrench to screw in TANKSTER hose end coupling to tank outlet Check the float chain is not wrapped around the hose, and add water to tank. Expel air from Tankster hose by submerging it, starting at the bottom. (Air is gone when TANKSTER is fully submerged, except for the float). Enjoy the best tank water always! Installation Instructions (UNDERGROUND** Water Tanks): Water Tank must be empty, ( or near empty) for good access to riser pipe inlet inside tank Two people for safety Torch, ladder, and maybe a pipe wrench Tankster can be installed to underground tanks by adding appropriate fittings to the standard 40mm male hose end to fit it to the tank's vertical riser pipe inlet. (Additionally, we supply a Non Return Valve / Check Valve** - installed at Tankster's floating inlet - for UNDERGROUND tank installations, to ensure the tank's riser pipe remains primed and full of water between pump cycles). Once Tankster (with Check Valve) is fitted, add water, and expel air from Tankster hose by submerging it under the float Enjoy the best tank water always! **UNDERGROUND tank users: * Please request " Tankster for UNDERGROUND tank " via web or phone pre purchase enquiry. We will forward a custom invoice incorporating supply of 1 x Check Valve to Tankster's floating inlet. Check Valve adds $35 when purchased with Tankster.

WASHABLE water filter cartridge, 20 micron, 10" BB sizing ( 10” x 4.5”). This washable water filter cartridge has pleated cartridge media which significantly increases the filtration surface area, resulting in improved sediment retention & longer periods between washes. Use as a first sediment filter for dirty water from rivers, dams, bores and roof catchments. Ideal for whole house water filtration systems where water source carries a lot of sediment. Also use to provide cleaner water for stock, improving water uptake and better stock performance. This washable water filter cartridge is particularly recommended as a water tank pre filter , installed before the tank . Filtering your storage water at this point reduces the sediment levels entering your water storage tank, (e.g. for dirty river and dam water supplies) We would recommend this cartridge for our LOWEST COST Water Filter where it to be used on very dirty creek or dam water for example ( replacing the standard 5 micron non washable sediment cartridge) https://saferwater.com.au/shop/lowest-cost-tank-water-filter/ When do I replace this washable water filter cartridge? Filter manufacturers normally recommend 12 months replacement, but for non potable water uses this can often be extended for washable cartridges. Using controlled garden hose pressure washing this washable water filter cartridge may last a couple of years or more. Obviously this will vary according to water quality - e.g.sharp woody matter which may damage the pleated media- and frequency of wash downs. After perhaps 12 months, some water sources may encourage a bacterial slime which will choke off water throughput, leading to pressure loss at the outlet, and the need for cartridge change. Algae may also stain the filter media after time, but this can often be controlled with a weak chlorine wash followed by sun drying. Summary This washable water filter cartridge removes Sediment, Rust, Sand, Algae and Dirt down to 20 microns. ( Use where the 5 micron washable filter may load too quickly). The pleated filter media significantly increases the effective filtration surface area, prolonging use before blocking. By carefully hosing pleats clean, filter is able to be used over & over again.
