3/4" "Y" Style Filters with Disc Elements

SKU
F534DF

These 3/4" "Y" Style filters have a Disc element inside to filter the water. A disc element is made of many thin round discs which have grooves on them. Once stacked together they provide a much larger filtration area than a screen does.

TIP: Be extra careful when installing a Disc or Screen filter. Each installs opposite for water flow. There are markings molded into the filter body showing the direction of water flow for each element type.

Filtration recommendations

  • Well or potable water: 150 to 155 mesh screen or disc filter on the main line.
  • Water with sand: disc filter on the main line positioned after a back-flow device
  • Reclaimed water: disc filter followed by screen filter with 155 mesh

  • Why use a Disc Filter? Disc filters excel at stopping organic material, stuff that would clog up a screen filter very quick. The downside to a Disc filter is that they take longer to clean. You must take the filter apart (not hard) and take the discs out of the holder and rinse them under clean water. It can take a good ten minutes to do the entire process. You cannot flush disc filters by using a ball valve on the bottom of the filter either.

    Why use a Screen Filter? Screen Filters are very easy and quick to clean, in fact you can even use a ball valve on the bottom of the canister to do a fast flush. For sand, grit and larger debris a screen is the best because of the easy flush ability. They are also less expensive so if you need to do a group of more than one filter in different size screen mesh its affordable.
