BB PolySediment Filter 1micron 20″ x 4.5″
These High Performance sediment cartridges are constructed from Polypropylene which is spun and melted simultaneously.
This technique means there is no center core to restrict filter performance. They do not accumulate bacteria as much as other materials, as well as being high flow and low pressure drop. 1 micron is a very fine filtration and would only be suited on high quality water such as town water prior to a carbon filter or in front of RO’s.
These Sediment filters are compatible with most liquids. Sediment filters are an effective, dependable, low cost solution to removing suspended matter such as silt, rust, sand, algae, sediment, scale particles, dirt and cloudiness from water.
Sediment filters have no chemical residuals, are extremely high performing, and carry a heavy load of sediment before requiring replacement.
BB PolySediment Filter 1micron effectively removes all traces of Gardia, thus allowing you to purchase any micron rating Carbon Filters, because regardless of the micron rating they will ALL extract the chemical elements.
This filter combination is suitable for ALL applications including town water. Also recommended for whole of house. Pleated filters are good for tank water systems.
We use these filters-due to high performance -flow rate-load capacity & their inability to grow bacterial slime.
When we say whole of house, it literally filters the whole house. Includes bathrooms, laundry, and anywhere with a tap. You could also put a single under sink in the kitchen with a fluoride filter if you want to remove fluoride from the kitchen tap- the rest of the house will have chlorine, dirt and rust removed.

Used as pre-filters to carbon or just to stop debris going into house in a 20″ Big Blue System.
Above all, 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.
In other words the lower the micron level of a filter, the more contaminants it can catch and purify from your water..
