Well Water & Sediment Filters

Our Contamin-Eater Whole House Filtration system and the Legacy Drinking Water Filters both utilize Selecto’s Hollow Carbon Technology and have 40 times the dirt holding capacity of conventional carbon block filters.

In most situations there is no need for a Sediment Pre-Filter when you use these products.

However, there are exceptions:

  1. Well water is usually high in sediment. Most well owners benefit from having a sediment pre-filter even if their water is otherwise very good.
  2. Old municipal water systems like Boston sometimes are very high in sediment due to old pipes.
  3. Old houses with old, steel pipes may need a sediment pre-filter.
  4. Municipal water systems that are under construction or making substantial changes to their pipes. Sometimes these systems suddenly allow a “dump” of water containing very high sediment (dirt) levels.
  5. Our customers in the Houston area require a pre-filter for sediment to protect and extend the life of their Contamin-Eater or Legacy filtration system.

If you are in one of these situations, you may want to consider installing a sediment pre-filter. After all, the primary reason you are purchasing a Contamin-Eater or Legacy water filter is for chemical removal. You don’t want your whole house or drinking water filter cartridge ruined because it is full of dirt when an inexpensive pre-filter would have extended the life of your primary filter by many months and saved you a lot of money in the long-run.
