Frequently Asked Questions
Q. "When should I change my filter?"
A. According to the manufacturer, these filters will work for about 1 year (1000 gallons). However, we recommend replacing that you replace your filters every 6 to 9 months for peak performance. Carbon filters absorb chemicals like a sponge, and once saturated the carbon can no longer absorb any more chemicals and must be disposed of. For other replacement filters, click here.
Q. "What is a 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.
