Water Filter Equipment
A cartridge filter is a filter that uses a barrier or sift method in order to remove and clean sediments and harmful solids out of water. Some of these filters are made to stop microscopic items and others are made simply to stop the major solids from entering a system. Cartridge filters are used in everything from drinking water purification systems to swimming pools and fish aquariums.
Most cartridge filters are usually kept in a housing. Most filters have since become more powerful, capable of filtering out more material.
In many cases, the cartridge filter in a swimming pool may be re-used. This can save a substantial amount of money. To clean the cartridge filter, all that is usually required is removing it from its housing and hosing it off. Many prefer to use a cartridge filter when drinking water from a home tap due to the number of additives often found in municipal water systems. Chlorine and other additives, used to make the water safe, can also leave an undesirable taste and odour. A cartridge filter can be used to take some of these chemicals out of the water, leading to an improved taste.
Unlike pool filters, most drinking water filters are not meant to be used more than once. Therefore, many may wish to keep replacements on hand, as the filters may last only a few months or less. Usually, the manufacturer will recommend a replacement schedule, though many owners may determine their own replacement schedule by considering taste and looking for any other sediments that may be getting through.
