RUSCO Reverse Flushable Water Filters
Rusco water filter separation devices are known throughout the world as the best in their class. We use them in all our water pumping/filtering systems. They come in all the pipe sizes you could need, from ¾” to 2” and all the mesh sizes as well. Rusco Reverse Flushable Filters last indefinitely, you just open the petcock at the bottom of the filter and it purges itself of debris.
The filter can be disassembled for occasional cleaning if necessary. Generally we’ve found that if you have staining from minerals like Iron in your water, you will want to clean the screen itself more frequently and if you have the poly screen you’ll eventually put a hole in it. If you have these problems get a stainless steel screen for your filter, as you can clean it forever, without harm. Stainless Steel screens only go as small as 200 mesh.
Algae grows in the presence of light under the clear filter cover, if you have this problem order the SUNSHIELD.
Choosing a filter mesh size
The information shown here is general in nature because of the many variations in shape, size and specific gravity of the materials being filtered. In general, use the coarsest screen deemed necessary to filter the material you want removed. This will result in longer run times between flush-downs.
