|For optimal results in hydroponics always use filtered or rainwater. This unit will make 200 litres of filtered water per day.|
Filter housing, membrane housing, high pressure tubing, mains supply ball valve, carbon filter, sediment filter and membrane.
Designed for town/scheme water with a TDS 500PPM maximum.
Production rate 50 gallons per day (approximately 200 litres) under the following conditions:
Water temperature 21Â°C
Nominal rejection rate over 96%
Change filters every 6-12 months and membrane every 3-5 years depending on TDS.
This unit filters tap water at the rate of 4 waste to 1 refined. So to collect 20L you need to pass 80L through the unit. Waste water can be re-harvested, captured and used in a washing machine or used on the garden safely.
It is the chlorine in the tap water that wears out the membrane which does the fine filtration. The kit comes with 1 x 5 micron sediment and 1 x 10 micron carbon filter and 1 x membrane.
Do not use with water that is Micro biologically unsafe or with water of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after the system. Systems certified for cyst reduction may be used on disinfected water that may contain filterable cysts.
