    Is there anyone using 1 micron sediment filters? If so is there a difference in the flow pressure when using this filter? will it slow down flow too much? Adding page links to this forum dont seem to working at the moment

    I use 1 micron sediment filters only because I brought a set of filters from a chap that came with a box of spares

    Don't know about if it would slow production through a ro though as I just use that filter set inline plus a di when I want to pump 000 ppm rainwater into my van.

    if you havent noticed a difference it must be a minimal change, but then again it does take a while for ur RO to fill up compared to mine! lol :Image9:

    I found a difference.

    I have a 4040 with 2 pressure gauges on each side of the filter housings. I have a 5 micron sediment and the new carbon block is a 1 micron filter. The moment I put the new CB filter in the pressure on the second gauge dropped about 5psi. When using a CAG carbon filter, both gauges registered the same. They are 20" units.
