John and Melissa purchased a Sediment Backwash Well Water Filter, and a 25/1 micro dual grade filer cartridge in a Big Blue housing unit. Their house had major turbidity issues from their well water, that is, their water was full of sediment and inorganic contamination from the well. At first they had just a 20 micron filter, which was letting through very fine material, like thinset mortar. After getting the Sediment Backwash Well Water Filter, its 5 micron capabilities effectively filtered out this particulate matter, leaving behind crystal clear water. The 25/1 micron (25 outside, 1 inside) filter afterwards polishes off the water down to an amazing 1 micron of effectiveness, further increasing the purity of their water. No more dirty, turbid water for them!
Here's what they had to say about their Clean Water System:
“Here are a few pictures of our sediment backwash filter for our well, along with the filter housing for a 25/1 filter.
So far, the filters are working as planned!

The Sediment Backwash Well Water Filter utilizes Chemsorb filter media. Chemsorb has micro-mineral projections on its surface, which effectively trap suspended solids from the water stream. Chemsorb has a working rate down to 5 microns of filtering, leading to excellent water quality.
Unlike using filter cartridges alone on the water, the Sediment Backwash Well Water Filter backwashes automatically, so there's no potential clogging of the filter cartridges alone, which usually leads to pressure drops in the system. The 25/1 filter cartridge with Big Blue Housing is placed after the Sediment Backwash Well Water Filter, assuring a high degree of purity of the water with its 1 micron filter. And since it follows a thorough filtration by the previous filter, there is less worry of particle clogging the cartridge.
