    Default Filter pressure

    The filter will not have to have constant pressure to filter. It is normal for the pressure to fluctuate during use.

    When the filter is in the housing, it will 'screen' out the sediemnts or particles that are greater than 5 microns. When the pressure and water stop flowing or is turned off, the water will just sit in the housing. Once the pressure is restored, it will continue to filter as it was before. There will not be any filtration lost when the pressure is restored either.

    There is not a need for constant pressure as long as you do not exceed the MAX pressure rating of the filter which is typically not attainable with standard houshold pressures.

    Hope this helps!
