Sediment Filter Micron Ratings
subject: A true 1 micron filter.
Comments: I would like to know if a pleated sediment filter is a true one micron filter and is it rated to remove cysts?
I have found that there are great differances in 1 micron filters and am looking for one to
remove sediment as small as 1 micron on initial installation.
Some are only one micron after the filter gets saturated with a given amount of sediment.
It depends what you want removed from the water.
If it’s sediment, it will do. If it’s cysts, it will not.
Pleated Cellulose-Polyester; Polypropylene; etc. are Sediment filters.
For cysts, a carbon type filter is needed.
