Sediment Filters

Sediment filters are used in whole house water filtration systems, under sink water filtration systems, and reverse osmosis systems. These water filters capture sediment, dirt, rust and scale and prevent these contaminants from causing problems with appliances, plumbing and other downstream water filters. Our selection includes polyspun, string wound, and pleated sediment filters. We also offer filters with activated carbon - which help remove chlorine and other organics.

What Our Customers Have to Say

Claire J 1 day ago
I like these filters and they were the ones I ordered but did not get. I was sent a substitute filter made in China. I sent an email regarding the ones I got but all I got as an answer that will fit my filter. No apology for substituting or reason why I got them. I hope the next time I get what I order.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do sediment filters do?

Sediment filters are the first line of defense against suspended particles in your water like dirt, rust and scale.

What are the different sizes for sediment filters?

There are 4 common sizes for sediment filters. For under sink applications - a 2-1/2” X 10” size is most common. For whole house and well water applications - a larger 4-1/2” X 10” format is common - and sometimes referred to as “Big Blue”. 4-1/2” X 20” filters are also used in residential whole house and commercial application. 2-1/2” X 20” filters are most used in commercial food and beverage applications.

What is the difference between pleated, polyspun, and string wound filters?

All of these sediment filters are constructed from polyester or polypropylene materials and they all perform in much the same way.

Do I need to add a sediment filter system if I have a well?

Yes. Private wells are more prone to sediment contamination than city water. Adding a whole house sediment filter will protect appliances and make plumbing fixtures last longer. Sediment filters are often used a pre-filters for water softeners.
