To clarify a micron is short for micrometer or one millionth of a meter. Now that’s a very tiny unit of measure! The micron rating refers to the distance between pieces of filter media. This determines the size of particles that the filter will allow to pass through. The lower the micron level of a filter, the more contaminants it can catch and purify from your water.
Subsequently BB (Big Blue) filters are for whole of house on tank water, bore water as well as mains water.
If 2 people reside in the house, the 10″x4.5″ size is perfect. 3 people or more reside in the house, the 20″x4.5″ is ideal. The 20″x4.5″ is more efficient and economical long term.
