Product Overview

  • Reduces sand, sediment, grit, debris and pipe scale
  • Equipped with self-cleaning filter for maintenance-free use
  • Plumbed into a homes incoming water supply pipe
The Glacier Bay Automatic Household Water Filtration System is NSF Certified under Ecodyne Water Systems. It will reduce sediment, sand, grit, debris, pipe scale and other loose matter with a self-cleaning water filter that can be flushed on a set schedule thanks to its programmable functionality. This filtration system is designed to be plumbed into a home's incoming water supply pipe, where it will capture sediment from the water and periodically flush them down the drain. It does not require a filter change because the system automatically cleans itself, triggered by an electronic control that counts down the days until the next automatic flush of collected sediment. A 60-micron filter is included with the unit, and optional 100 or 150 micron filters can also be purchased.
  • Whole-house filtration system reduces sediment and sand in your water
  • Delivers clearer, cleaner water throughout your home
  • Includes one 60-micron filter, which is cleaned/flushed on a frequency of your preference
  • Programmable auto-cleaning setting works on a battery-powered electronic controller (uses one 9-Volt battery, included)
  • Includes mounting bracket, drain hose, adapters, clips and hose clamps
  • NSF certified under ecodyne water systems
  • Backed by a 1-year limited manufacturer warranty

Questions & Answers

Does this unit filter iron?

My water has brown stain, and was wondering if this unit can filter that as well!
Asked by: Pete
If you add an aspirator to mix some air with the household water each time it is used the iron and rust form larger particles and can easily be filtered out. You will probably have to back flush more often. I have installed many systems similar to this, there are several rust removers on the market which work on this principle all are expensive but do the same thing. I have been a professional licensed plumber 44 years.

Do the fittings need to be facing up?

For my system it would be better if they were facing down but I'm afraid of leaks. In all the pictures and diagrams they are facing up. Thank you.
Asked by: Joey
not really i wish the come straight as i need the straight one, they can spin around and will not leak even under pressure, use some plumber's grease on o rings

Water Pressure?

Will this filter affect my water pressure, as in lower it significantly? Or at least noticeably?
Asked by: fuscia
My water pressure has not changed. If anything I think once I am able to replace the washers and screens in my spigots it probably will increase some.

Customer Reviews

Automatic Household Water Filtration System is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from good product would i recommend this product yes, especially if you have well water be advised that if your sifter in the well is bad you will have to manually backwash the filter because your pressure will drop. if you have city water it depend on how old is the city system you may experience same problem like with well water manual backwash, overall the product does what is made for it it filtrate a large particle that eventually will end up in your faucet aerator and water do seem to taste better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great PRE-Filter This is a great way to get most of the big particles like sand or rust out of the water before it gets to the main water filter. Since this is a stainless steel filter screen it's not designed for removing chlorine or other very fine substances. I installed this right after the pressure tank to remove the sand like particles that clog my drip watering system, water timers and other water valves. So far it's been doing a great job. This unit is easy to install the only thing that takes some planning is where the water from the filter will drain to. On my install it was easy, I let it drain on the ground outside my pressure tank enclosure. This would normally discharge into a household drain pipe where you would need to provide an air gap. One drawback is the filter has only 90 degree fittings on the inlet and outlet. These are special fittings with double O-rings and a "C" clip retainer (see photo). If you have a straight run where this filter is going to be installed you will have to make plans to accommodate the supplied 90 degree fittings. Once installed, the filter can be set to automatically clean itself or you can push the "Clean Now" button to clean whenever its needed. The automatic cleaning cycle is in one day increments, up to thirty days between each cleaning cycle. One note; the instructions show an air gap into a "Tee" on a drain pipe (page 8). I would check local codes to make sure that a "P-trap" is not required to prevent sewer gases from entering the living space. This is a great filter for removing bigger particles that can clog water timers, hoses and appliance water valves, since its automatic its one less thing to remember.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase ever We had water that smelled like sulfur.. Bought this and the smell went away completely! easy to install. I love it and no filters to replace which is a great savings! Would recommend.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Questionable Purchase I purchased one of these a couple of months back from Home Depot on-line. Before I purchased my house the owners had a different brand automatic sediment filter, which must have gone bad, because in the time between seeing the house and doing my due-diligence it was swapped for standard cartridge filter on the water lines. It gets filled pretty quickly with granite like sandy material, so I got the Glacier Bay. These are all opinion based observations. I have never installed it as I am concerned about its overall construction. It seems rather flimsy. It has nothing but plastic C-Clips holding the elbows in place and everything seems to be lightweight plastic, the flush tube does not seem to be very secure. This is in an area of the house that if it were to fail I would have catastrophic flooding. It would be nice if this was a bit sturdier so that I could be confident to install the product in my home.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality reflects the price The automatic self-flushing doesn't clean completely the filter and it still requires rinsing it manually once in a while. I had to disassemble the whole filter to clean it manually twice, including the valve and the solenoid. My house uses well water and there is plenty of sediment - it probably works better in houses with city water. I do like the filter and I can't wait to see the company improve the self-flushing process, so that the screen is rinsed too, not just flush out the sediment on the bottom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome filter I get my water from a well and am always worried about what is coming out of the tap. This device gives me real peace of mind. It comes with a mounting bracket, drain hose (for when it self cleans), adapters, clips, hose clamps and even the nine volt battery it needs to run. The screen has very small holes so it is really getting the small particles. You can even buy an A/C adapter if you are worried about the battery going out on you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I don't have enough sediment to properly review this I apparently have little to no sediment (that's a good thing, right?), so I can't give a proper review of its ability to remove sediment. I can comment on the rest. I found out the hard way that the purge house needs to be very securely mounted, or it will flail about wildly. I have mine placed to water my garden (don't want to waste water in California). Pros: * Easy to install (anyone comfortable with plumbing should be able to do it) * Includes quick connect fittings (1"), mounting hardware, battery (9v) and everything needed to connect to your pipes * Easy instructions * Programmable timer, for the purge cycle, or you can manually purge Cons: * The supplied fittings (90 degree elbows) assume that's the way you'll want to install it. I'd like to have seen a coupler and a straight pipe included, to make it easier to install, especially to additional filtering devices (I have a whole house filter from the same manufacturer), without an additional hardware store visit/purchase but, maybe I am reaching to high. * The battery does not have a place to secure it. It just lays wherever you put it. * The cover is easily knocked loose or off. I'd like to see some sort of clamp or screw to hold it on. * The cover is not watertight. That doesn't seem like a good thing for the battery or the circuitry

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great if you have a lot of sediment Installing my filter required a plumber in my case. I have an older home and the plumbing situation warranted a professional. That being said, once it's installed it's low maintenance. I check it every month or so to make sure the screen isn't getting clogged with any large particle. The battery also lasts a long time too. I went with this option rather than the whole house filter with replaceable cartridge because I'm on a well and sediment was my only problem. Also, my water pressure is on the low side, 45psi, and I didn't want to impede that further with a heavy duty filter. Also, no cartridges to replace with this model. I would say give this model a try first for sediment, and if you don't like it, it shouldn't be hard to remove it or swap it out for something else.
