Q. "What is micron rating?"
A. The average size of the openings between pieces of the filter media are represented in microns. For example, a 40-micron filter has larger openings than a 5-micron filter. Consequently, the 40-micron filter element will let larger particles pass through the filter than the 5-micron element.
As a general rule, the smaller micron rating for a filter is better, but as with most everything, there is a trade-off. Flow capability usually drops off as the micron rating gets smaller. To overcome this, low micron-rating filters must have larger elements to keep from sacrificing precious flow.
Q. "How long does the cleaning cycle take?"
A. This unit features a reverse flushing technique that cleans the filter in less than 20 seconds.
Q. "How long will the filter screen last?"
A. As these filter screens are made from durable stainless steel, they can last several years while collecting the maximum debris between regular cleanings.
Q. "When should filter be replaced?"
A. As with all filters, this depends on the water quality, the amount of debris, etc. that needs to be filtered.
Q. "Will this work for my small orchard?"
A. This inline water filter is designed for light use per the manufacturer. It's great for most homes, and would help keep debris from a small drip system setup like a backyard garden. Depending on your water quality, amount of debris, how often the water is run, etc. will all affect how well any particular filter will suit a particular application. If you have significant debris and run water 24 hours a day or use a high volume of water, another filter might be a better choice for an orchard. If you're unsure, check with a local agricultural irrigation expert.
