View Full Version : 5 Micron Carbon - Low Lifespan

01/01/2010, 10:00 AM
I have been replacing my filters every 2 months here lately due to the 5-micron stage plugging and am wondering if there is something I can add before this stage to improve this? I have a 10 sediment - 5 carbon - 1 carbon setup and everything comes back to pressure after replacing the 5 micron carbon stage.

Do I just need to start ordering extra 5-micron filters and change regularly?

Do you seem to get a lot of junk in your water lines? Seems that this would be what clogs this up to me.

I suggest trying a 5 micron sediment filter $3 instead of the 10 micron and see what happens. The sediment filter may clog but the price is far less.
