Standard Filter Housings are available in both 10" and 20" lengths and will accommodate a wide range of 2-1/2" to 2-7/8" diameter cartridges.

    The reinforced polypropylene cap offers an optional pressure-relief button on the inlet side to relieve pressure inside the housing when changing filter cartridges. Reinforced polypropylene housings have excellent chemical resistance and are ideal for many residential, commercial and industrial applications.                                                                                                                          Clear sumps offer an on-site examination of the cartridge. Opaque Standard Filter Housings are moulded from rugged reinforced polypropylene. They offer outstanding chemical compatibility and are ideal for use in a variety of low-flow applications. Clear Standard Filter Housings offer on-site examination of flow, performance, and cartridge life. They are ideal for a variety of applications.

  • What are Water Filter cartridges?

    Depending on the application, what you’re trying to remove or in some circumstances trying to stop, there are 3 types of water filter cartridges.

    Each one of these addresses a different water problem and many filters use a combination of these methods to perform multiple levels of filtration.

    Sediment Cartridges

    Sediment filters are designed to remove, or trap suspended solids.

    These “mechanical” filters are most often used to remove sediments and are very commonly used if the water comes from a lake or river source. They are often referred to as sediment or particle filters. Eventually these cartridge filters get dirty over time and cannot remove or trap the suspended solids. The sediment filter will then require replacement at that time. The most common indication the sediment filter requires replacement is you notice a significant loss in water pressure.

    Absorption Cartridge Filters

    The most common type of water filters are those based on absorption, most of which use granular activated carbon. These cartridge filters are primarily used to remove unwanted taste and odour from water such as chlorine. When water passes through a Carbon filter the contaminants bind and get absorbed by the molecules of the activated carbon absorbing contaminants. As time goes on, the carbon becomes saturated and therefore less effective at absorbing contaminants, which is why you need to change the filter every so often.

    Speciality Cartridge Filters

    Speciality Cartridge Filters are designed to remove a more specific contaminant in the water These filters can be manufactured to remove such contaminants as fluoride, lead and other heavy metals. Some of these filters can also kill bacteria and parasites.
