Our Dirt Buster Sediment Filter uses a Fleck control valve to allow the filter to backwash the collected sediment or dirt in your water automatically. The Fleck automatic timer control requires a standard 115-volt electrical connection.
Some well water contains so much sediment such as dirt, grit or sand that it needs to be filtered to protect plumbing and plumbing fixtures as well as any additional water treatment systems like a water softener or an iron filter. that might be needed. The Dirt Buster is a simple backwashing filter which consists mainly of a large tank filled with a filtering medium that traps the sediment (dirt) in the filter medium as the household water flows through it. The Dirt Buster will automatically backwash to remove the sediment based on the amount of dirt in the water.
Dirt Buster Sediment Filters: 2 sizes, DS1.5 or a DS 2.0 consisting of the Fleck 5600 Automatic Control Valve and either a 10″ x 54″ or a 12″ x 52″ fiberglass tank filled with either 1.5 cu. ft. or a 2.0 cu. ft. of multi media and gravel.
