The use of a sand filter (separator) may save you money over time by possibly extending the life of your regular water filters and water heater. They may also prevent sand from depositing in your plumbing lines. Lakos is a leader in the sand filtration industry and PlumbingSupply.com® is your source for Lakos products.
Sand Filters (Separators)
Sandy Water In: Water, sand, silt and grit flow from the pump into the sandmaster.
Centrifugal Action Separation: Particles are thrown to perimeter, flall and collect in the lower chamber.
Clean Water Out: Free of sand, silt and grit water exits the separator and flows to the pressure tank.
Sand Purge: Open the valve periodically to flush away separated particles.
After the sand filters, we recommend installing a smaller particle filter.
Through 1" we recommend the #W10PR housing
either the #W30PEHD or #W50PEHD
Through 1 1/2" the #W15PR housing
#W30PEHD or #W50PEHD
sediment cartridges are recommended.
The Sand master can not eliminate red colored clay/soil/mud - it will take out sand (which is heavier)
but the red color may indicate another water quality concern.
