Bigger Micron Needed?
I was wondering what I could use to filter my water coming into my house. I have a well which has a lot os sediment in it, it comes in like mud, I have a 50 micron filter on it before my water treatment system, because it kept plugging off the filter in the treatment tank. This works fine but I have to change the filter every week or so. My Question is is there a filter which has a 100 micron filter or a self cleaning filter available. Your Response would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

If you're changing it when it looks dirty you're probably not getting the most out of the filter. I would suggest only changing the filter when you experience a decrease in pressure.
We have a filter that is both 75 micron and 25 micron built into one filter. It's called a dual gradient filter. It's available in a 20" long cartridge which would also allow for higher flow rates. You may want to try this filter. Here is a link to it below on our website.
