Sediment is primarily small grains of materials like sand, rust, clay or silt. These kinds of sediment are referred to as “suspended solids”. Sediment can cause wear to plumbing, pumps, and water appliances. It may even create clogs in the water system that decrease the flow of water. Utilizing sediment filters can reduce the number of suspended solids in your water and increase the quality of your water as well as the lifespan of your pipes and water system.
