Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KansasGardener Just what I was looking for!
I'm using this filter on a 275 gallon rain tank. I hooked it up to the outflow spigot. My water nozzle was getting plugged with debris. This works great for my garden hose.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hughmanoid Pre-filtering rainwater at low pressure (<9 psi)
Downstream from a 1/4 hp sump pump pumping roof and driveway runoff up to 9 psi.
Using to protect a digital flow meter from clogging from debris such as pine needles and grit.
40 mesh is about 375 microns and should catch pebbles and coarse sand.
After reading other less than stellar reviews:
I wouldn't use this unattended and permanently attached to city water pressure (washing machine, etc...) such as up to 80 psi in the event of unforeseen surprises like earthquakes.
I can't understand who would expect it to filter silt,calcium, rust, or other dissolved solids.
I would use teflon tape and plumbers grease (not vaseline) on the clear bowl to FINALLY seal it ,
Clean it by removing the hose ends and blow or backflush the gunk out rather than disturbing the bowl.

Any product that fails the way this one did last night is definitely not a good value at any price. It was installed in the line to my washing machine. I awoke to the sound of spraying water and during several hours I wet vac'd about forty gallons. My unit failed exactly like the ones in the pictures. It didn't leak at all until it did! Someone asked why this isn't sold in Canada. Maybe they already know about this. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!

I've had 3 of these now and on every one of them the filter canister broke-out at the bottom. They were installed on the water inlet of my pressure washer and only lasted any where from 1 - 2 months each. HD readily exchanged each faulty unit for a new one, but 3 strikes and you're out! I will not give it another chance.

Look at the price and that should tell you that the plastic is cheap and to thin
and breaks at the bottom and does not seal good. Lose more water then
what is going into the hose. Great idea but it does not filter the water like
a filter should, calcium etc out of the water.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by moooooff Works ok
When I first set this up it leaked water pretty good. I tried tightening it up and it still leaked. I then got out a pair of gloves and tightened it as hard as I could and it finally stopped leaking. I'm not sure if this is correct or if there is a defect with mine.

I bought three of these filter and all three leak at the bowl seal. either it has the wrong seal, the seal is to hard (compound) or the engineering is off. I was very disappointed.

Based on what I bought this for it works well enough. I hooked it up to my electric pressure washer which has a cheap plastic stainer with it. this should last a little longer. because of what it is made of.
