Dougs Carbon filter is cr4p in comparison though, I much prefer ordering from Daqua but once @spruce pointed out the lifespan of those filters it put me right off 🤷‍♂️

I ‘think’ grippas and daquas fiberdyne 10” pre filters are both around the 38,500L mark? 

I’ll have to check

If you look a little further down the list Doug sells the 10" Chlorplus rated at 1 micron. If your water is really good (clear) then this filter is a long life one. He doesn't do it in 20". I bought one once and it didn't last for long as it got clogged up with sediment despite having a 5 micron sediment filter before it. Our water is laden with sediment.

Its not the same filter Steve. His 10" one is a Chlorplus rated at 1 micron with a service life of 189,000 liters.

Cheek and you wanted your money back 😂

 

At least we are honest in saying what the specification is where as I know 100% fact there are plenty out there that falsify their information to get sales.

You get better carbon grade so you have to pay that extra but some people just look at the price and not specification.

6000 litres is what it will take out if your water has constant Chlorine, sometimes it will not have Chlorine and other days it will.

The CFB-PLUS 10 is rated 5 micron with 38,500 litres capacity but we advise putting a 5 micron sediment before this filter.

 

There is a CFBC-10 with higher capacity but this is rated at 0.5 micron.

 

Depending on water temp the 0.5 micron will slow your system down if the water temp is low and water molecules are denser.

Sorry Doug.... I would order pretty much anything else from you. My RO has been great and I recommend you to anyone who needs one. Wish I had ordered my sediment filters from you now too.

 

Is there a reason you don't stock the Fibredyne filters? I would much prefer to order them all through you than Grippa.

And I've been spelling Fibredyne wrong all these years.😂

 

(Yes, I've just checked the spelling on a new filter's packaging.)

The 10" CFBC high-performance carbon filters I bought from Grippa have gone up £3.00 in price from £21.00 plus vat to £24.17  but their service life is 75,000 litres which I calculated will last me 19 weeks but what I can't work out is the published data on their site still not sure if its a carbon and sediment filter or why they recommend a 10 micron sediment filter https://www.grippatank.co.uk/fibredyne-cfbc-sediment-carbon-pre-filter-10 I emailed them and why they recommend 10 micron sediment filters when I had always bought 5 microns from Gardiners previously they said Gardiners had never sold 5" sediment filters I emailed again and got no response their customer service ain't great on the whole.

Almost exactly what happened to me.

I too enquired about this. Promised an e.mail with the applicable information, nothing

I got them delivered this week and just changed my carbon filter last night and noticed straight away that for some reason there were no labels on them, still bewildered how they can get confused with 5 microns for 5 inches, I ordered a door card for my van as well and had to ring them after delivery and I wasn't overly impressed with the guy on the phone, I don't think I will buy anything else of them in the future.

I phoned Citroen Technical in Coventry about 18 months ago. I had a reg of a van I was interested in buying and wanted to know if the body was galvanised dipped in production in the Sevel Sud factory in Italy. The response was that this model didn't have a galvanised dipstick. I'm just looking at the 5" sediment filters and wonder if the same thing happened.

I think we've found the dipstick, they're responding to emails for Grippa... Bloody 15 word rule

I know 5" sediment filters exist but in the case of @GrippaTANK their stock isn't extensive and I still can't work out why they recommend certain sediment filters but don't stock any at all 😵 , I had a hunt around this morning and hey presto Pentair Fibredyne™ CFBC Carbon Cartridge which details the full spec @steve garwood not sure if you wanted to know this also

Is there a study you have found to collaborate this @doug atkinson?

 

Our water supplier will say that our drinking water is safe to drink as it is treated with chlorine and that chlorine will always be present in the water we drink for it to be safe. In other words, they have a 'politically correct script' that they read from that may or may not reflect the actual situation.
