Floating Pump Intake Filters
Floating pump intake filters rest several inches deep inside a water tank and help to pull in the cleanest water available. Since sediment sinks to the bottom, and debris floats to the top, the cleanest water resides in the middle of the tank.
How Floating Pump Intake Filters Work
A floating pump intake filter floats in the tank and extracts the clean water resting in the middle. After being accepted into the stainless steel filter, the water then moves through the flexible piping and exits through the check valve before finally entering the main watering system.
It’s important not to overlook intake filters, which are a necessary component for all rain harvesting systems. Floating pump intake filters are essential because, with any system, particulates will either settle at the bottom or float to the top. An intake filter ensures that your system pulls water from only the cleanest section of the tank.
There is a demonstrable difference between tanks with intake filters and those without. Studies have shown that water at the top and bottom of a rain harvesting tank has higher mineral and metal content than water in the middle. An intake filter helps you avoid getting minerals, metals, and solids when pulling water directly from the top or bottom of a tank.
Intake filters are an easy and inexpensive way to get to the cleanest water of your rain harvesting tanks. Their longevity and ease of installation make intake filters a great investment for your rain harvesting system.
