Multimedia Tank Filters


Sediment, grit and turbidity in water cause problems with water systems when they settle in tanks and can cause blockages in pipes and fittings. Washing and plumbing fixtures can be stained and washing machines or dishwashers permanently damaged by silt.

Multimedia filtration is an economic means of removing the bulk of particles from a water supply (every particle large enough to be visible to the naked eye) and all particles likely to damage household appliances.

The filter bed is maintained in a clean condition by regular backwashing to waste. This process reverses the flow through the filter, flushing accumulated dirt and regenerating the filter material.

The media use is low cost and unlikely to need replacement for several years depending on flow rate. Multimedia filtration is particularly recommended for surface water supplies containing high levels of suspended solids. If abrasive grit or large particles are present, an inlet strainer is recommended to prevent damage to the backwash valve.
