0.5 Micron Sediment Replacement Filter Information

If you want a sediment-free water source, you need to have a reliable filtration system installed. Many manufacturers offer replacement cartridges and some of the best manufacturers that offer sediment replacement filter include Captive Purity, Kent Marine and SpectraPure from Pet Store. These replacement filters are interchangeable within the reverse osmosis systems of the specified manufacturers so whichever of these filtration systems is installed in your home, you won"t have a hard time looking for a filter that fits.

An ideal sediment replacement filter should be able to block all fine sediments that could impair carbon block filters found at the downstream area of your RO setup. This is the filter"s main function because a damaged carbon block filter can no longer trap or adsorb water contaminants such as solvents, volatile organic compounds (VOC"s), chlorine, et cetera. Purchase replacement filters that are durable and reliable so you can keep your RO membranes longer.

Filters of high quality is the most economical way to maintain the good condition of all your marine supplies because replacing the RO system is way more expensive. To have the best aquatic world for your wonderful fishes and corals, a clean water is necessary and you can easily, and readily achieve this with dependable filter supplies from Captive Purity, Kent Marine and SpectraPure.

Please note that these replacement cartridges are interchangeable with Captive Purity`s, Kent Marine`s, and SpectraPure`s RO or RO/DI units. We have researched the best replacement cartridges among these three manufacturers and offer only the best of each below.

**Variations of this product can be found in many online stores. The version we carry is of the highest quality. Although this item is eligible for price matching under our Low Price Guarantee, please be certain the product you want to price match is the same make and model.

Comments: I started a new 125 gallon tank in early December 2012 that utilizes a Coast to Coast silent overflow system and needed filter socks. I use the 0.5 micron socks I purchased from MD on the primary and secondary drain lines as the primary physical filter elements. I have two sets of socks and switch them out twice a week. I rinse the used socks with tap water, ring them and set them in the sun to dry. This rids my tank of unwanted fish waste and uneaten food making it easy to control nitrites and nitrate levels. The filter socks are inexpensive and easy to use and I would recommend giving them a try.

Comments: I use both the 0.5 Micron Sediment Filter and the 0.5 Micron Carbon Block. These two in combination do a great job of filtering the water. I recommend these filters for anyone wanting to filter water.

Comments: Was initially going with the 1.0 micron for cost savings but decided to stick with Spectrapure recommendation of 0.5, a little more but fish are a whole lot more. Perfect fit no replacement issues.

Comments: I have used this in my RO/DI unit several times. This has consistently performed well. I like this much better than the 1.0 micron filter because it seems to help the other components last much longer.
