    Default Sediment Filter Cartridges

    We have an 80' deep well that is working just fine but we have looked into the two types of sediment filter elements availabel for our whole house filter housing (W10-PR).

    One filter element is a 75 micron pre filter and a 25 micron post filter element and
    the other is a 25 micron pre filter and a 1 micron post filter element.

    This is a very substantial difference in filtration capacity. What should be sufficient for filtering sediment out of a "normal" well?

    Thanks

    It is hard to be precise without knowing more about your water and usage, but of the two choices I would probably go with the 75-25 it prevent clogging of the 1-micron filter.
