How many gallons per minute can this filter handle?

Asked by: mmeadows
It will handle 20 gallons per minute but they suggest 10 to 15 GPM. The more water you send threw it the shorter the filter will last.

10 in. 5 Micron Sediment Filter System is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for main line filter system. If you want to have your water heater, faucets, shower head and valves to last longer than a complete house filter is the way to go. The Pelican Water 10 in. 5 micron sediment filter system is the thing to have. The shell is made of strong hard plastic and a high quality aluminum hanger makes it a long lasting system. You will need shutoff valves on both sides so you can isolate the system when changing the filter. It is an easy system to install if you have some plumbing experience.

I used this as a whole house filter to stop trash from entering our home and plugging up our appliances. As a plumber the install is easy, it should be easy for most people as well. This filter is the classic pelican made by pentair spun poly coil. It works well, to well it seems as that is one dirty filter. 5 microns is pretty small and you will be surprised how much trash you have coming into you home. Looks good also!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good flow, very efficient This is a good quality filtration system. It has large inlet and outlet to improve the flow and decrease resistance. The kit comes with the filter housing, a nice hefty mounting plate, appropriate screws, a 5-micron filter, and a filter wrench. The filter wrench is used to tighten and loosen the blue canister, and it makes it very easy to tighten and loosen the canister. The inlet and outlet port is about 1.3" major diameter, which is the major diameter of the threads. Water seems to flow through it very well. I can not attest to what the filter actually does to the way that water tastes, but it does a great job at clearing out the crud from water lines with high flow and minimal resistance. I am actually using this is a coolant filter on a metal milling machine, and it does not let ANYTHING through. Keeps my coolant crystal clear and like new. Anyone that understands metal cutting principles knows that re-cutting chips that cycle through your coolant is about the worst thing you can do. This filter works just as good as other "purpose made" coolant filters that attach a premium to the title. I run a water soluble synthetic, and it appears to have no effect / not degrade the filter. Overall, this thing is great. When testing it, I got great flow with just water, and it performs exactly as intended. Works great filtering cutting fluid on my metal mill that I run flood coolant on. If you need a high-flow liquid filter, this bad boy is a great solution!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install whole home sediment filter We have well water at our home along with aging galvanized pipes and we've found our faucets and toilet valves keep getting clogged with small particles of rust and sand from the interior of the pipes which slows down the water flow. We decided to give this sediment filter a try and it does the job very well. The filter is a heavy woven style cylinder which filters out particles down to 5 micron which is 20 times smaller than a human hair. The filter lasts 6-9 months and can be re-purchased in a pack of 4 from Home Depot. The filter also comes with a plastic handled tool for removing the filter housing to change the filter and this can be stored in a specially designed slot in the bracket so you don't lose it. Installation was easy - you just need to know which pipe is supplying the water so you can connect the filter to the 'In' and 'Out' sides correctly. The top of the filter has female 1" pipe threads and our existing pipework has 3/4" threads so we bought about $7.50 worth of PVC pipe fittings to reduce the 1" fittings to 3/4" so we could hook up the filter to our pipes with a couple of 3/4" water heater hoses. Mounting the filter is easy - it comes with an aluminum bracket and the necessary screws. My only criticism is that there are no installation instructions included in the filter packaging however I was able to find them on Home Depot's website on the product page to make sure I was doing everything properly. The filter comes with a 12 month warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean water! We installed this sediment filter system on our private camping property where we collect and pump rain water for our washing and cleaning (not drinking) needs, and we needed a filter system to filter out dirt, bugs, and other sediment that ends up in the rain water. This filter system was relatively easy to install, and comes with everything needed for regular installation. The filter housing is also a very sturdy. As we connected the system to hoses (see my pictures), we did need to obtain separate hose fittings. I'm not sure if you need to obtain separate fittings if you were to install this filter system in a residence. We've only used this filter system for one week, but so far the water looks clean and clear!
