NO MAINTENANCE and no pesky water filters to replace. This unit pays for itself quickly. No salt or chemicals to add either. Fleck® 5600 Compatible Controller REMOVES many unwanted contaminants from private well water and city water supply systems. Including dirt, sediment, some red water iron, sand, rust and metal from old pipes and fixtures. You can see larger backwashing dirt and sediment filters farther down this page.


City Water or Municipal Water

If you are on a city water system and just want to remove moderate amounts of dirt, sediment or even rust sediment and iron from the old city water pipes. You can use a replaceable in line cartridge style filter. You will see some listed below with prices. The 20" long sediment filter is always a good choice as you don't have to replace it as often as a 10" filter. Use the higher flow 20" filter (4.5" dia.) for bigger homes with more bathrooms and homes that have higher water pressure and flow rates. If you think you may have 15 GPM of flow or more, you must use the larger 20" cartridge filter (4.5" dia). If you want to remove chlorine from the water as well, then the carbon cartridge version is best. Many people with large amounts of dirt and chlorine in their city water use both filters together. Putting a sediment filter in front of a carbon filter may greatly increase the life of the carbon filter. Disposable carbon water filters are more expensive than disposable sediment water filters. If you have what you consider massive amounts of chlorine or dirt and sediment, then a backwashing type automatic water filter system may be best.

Private Home Well Water Systems

It is usually best to use backwashing filter tanks when dealing with private well water dirt and sediment issues. Private wells are rarely chlorinated so you must backwash these type of filters regularly. Most of our filters backwash automatically so there is virtually no maintenance involved. You just set it up and it takes care of itself. If it is just dirt and sediment, then the backwashing sediment filter is a great choice. If you have iron, sulfur or manganese as well in the water, then the Terminox®ISM well water filter is best. The Terminox®ISM removes many different substances without the use of salt, chemicals and additives. It is virtually maintenance free. Terminox® removes iron, sulfur, manganese, sediments and dirt, turbidity and even strong chemicals like chlorine or bleach. You will see both the automatic backwashing style sediment filters and the Fully Automatic BackWashing Terminox®ISM iron, sulfur and manganese filters listed for sale below.
