Reducing particulate is important for several reasons, but most importantly it removes larger particulate that may carry pathogens as well as causes cloudiness in the water. WISY pre-filters work by removing larger particles of debris (as small as 0.011" in size) and drawing clean water through the filter screen to send it to the tank. This means that only very small particles make it to the tank after the pre-tank filter. With proper pre-filtration you can have cleaner water and you should not have to clean your tank out.
This step reduces the amount of particulate that goes to end use which can promote the longevity of the pumps, post-tank filtration components, and reduce build-up in piping (or drip-emitters in irrigation systems).
So there you have it! Four simple steps that help create a very high-quality rainwater harvesting system for your application. In the next few days we will have more posts going into some more detail on each of these steps, explaining the importance of these steps and how to properly size them so stay tuned!
