As the name suggests, a sediment filter acts as a barrier against different types of sediments or suspended solids. It sieves or holds back physical impurities like dust, dirt, sand, silt, clay, and other solid particles. Mostly the particles that are visible to the naked eye are treated by sediment filters during the process of water purification. A Sediment filter usually acts as the first stage of water purification. It prohibits all the solid particulate from entering your filtered water and enhances the filtration efficiency of RO membrane and UV filters. It is not responsible for changing the taste or smell of water. It is one of the preventive filtration methods and does not remove chemicals, heavy metals, bacteria, viruses, or dissolved solids in water. These impurities are removed by further stages of RO and UV purification. Suitable for Marvella Mineral RO+UV, Eco Marvella RO+UV, Eco Ultima RO+UV, Eco Copper RO+UV.
