Clean Filters

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

The cartridge filters needed cleaning again. I pulled them out and soaked them in cleaner for a day. Then rinsed them out and reinstalled them. Operating pressure dropped back to 20psi. While I had them out I also cleaned the SWG again.
I am looking to add a sand filter before the cartridge filters to preclean the water before it hits the cartridge filters. The cartridges are about $110.00 each, and I need 4 of them when they need replacing. They only last about 4 years, and one set of mine are about due for replacing. My thought is a sand filter will stop most of the big stuff and the cartridges can just take out the small stuff, extending their life.
