20 best flow filters

Review of the best according to the editorial board. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

To stay healthy, you need clean drinking water. Unfortunately, the degree of purification by urban water supply networks and the quality of pipes in the ground leave much to be desired. The stream may contain chlorine, lime, rust and microbes. Well water includes silt, sand, algae and is also far from ideal. To freely drink tap water, special filters have been developed. They differ in terms of cleaning principle, configuration and installation location. Here is a ranking of the best flow filters based on customer reviews and product specifications to help you choose the right device for your apartment or private home to enjoy clean water.

The best flow filters for washing

In this category of the rating there are flow-through models installed under the sink. Only a faucet with a narrow spout is brought up to the top, so that it is convenient to draw liquid. Concealed installation has a beneficial effect on the interior of the kitchen and does not take up useful space above the sink. But this requires a spacious niche under the table.

Prio New water Expert Osmos Stream MOD600

Rating: 4.9

Prio New water Expert Osmos Stream MOD600

The first place in the rating is taken by an electronically controlled filter. The model is connected to the water supply through a ½ inch thread and is designed for a flow temperature from 5 to 35 degrees. The cleaning cartridges include carbon and a reverse osmosis membrane with a porosity of 5 microns, which allows only water molecules to pass through. In addition to the retention of chlorine and mechanical particles, the flow-through unit softens the liquid and mineralizes it, which the owners like in the reviews. A neat ball valve and a stainless steel gander are provided for output to the sink. The manufacturer gives a 2-year warranty for the product, but the estimated service life is 5 years.

We put the in-line filter in the first place in the rating due to the presence of a high-quality Jet X855 pump unit in the device. The equipment operates independently of the pressure of the liquid at the inlet (2-8 atm) and drives water through all 5 stages with reverse osmosis at a constant speed. This gives the highest possible cleaning efficiency at the outlet and a productivity of 1.25 liters per minute.

Advantages

  • 5 stages of cleaning;
  • beautiful stainless steel faucet included;
  • automatic membrane flushing function;
  • electronic control;
  • cleaning of debris, unpleasant odors, viruses.

disadvantages

  • high price;
  • there is no protective film on the case – it is quickly covered with scratches and stains;
  • the set is missing some fasteners;
  • the instructions do not indicate that the cartridges must be pre-soaked.

Aquaphor DWM 101S Morion

Rating: 4.8

Aquaphor DWM 101S Morion

The second place in the rating of the best flow-through purifiers was given to the filter from the Aquaphor brand. This product has four replaceable cartridges and a small stock capacity. The device is capable of eliminating iron, chlorine, mineralizing and disinfecting. But since the flow-through filter device does not have its own pump, the productivity here is lower and amounts to 0.13 l / min. The hydraulic filter is produced with its own gander and ball valve. You don't need to buy anything separately for installation – everything is included. Buyers in reviews praise the detailed instructions, thanks to which many managed to install the cleaner on their own.

In our opinion, this flow-through model earned a place in the ranking for its compactness. The dimensions of the filter are 37x42x19 cm, and this together with a small tank. This design fits easily under the sink in the corner and there will still be room for the trash can. The presence of a reservoir helps out when you need to collect a supply of water or drink at once for a group of 5 people.

Advantages

  • you can install a mineralization cartridge or close it with a plug;
  • works with a pressure at the inlet of 1.9 atm;
  • detailed installation instructions – many did it themselves;
  • storage tank included;
  • quiet work.

disadvantages

  • to get 1 liter of clean water, you need to skip 4 liters;
  • at first, an oil film comes out of the complete tap;
  • productivity 0.13 l per minute;
  • short gander of the crane – the electric kettle fits under it with difficulty.

Prio New water Econic Osmos Stream OD360

Rating: 4.7

Prio New water Econic Osmos Stream OD360

The third place in the rating is again occupied by a product from the Novaya Voda company, but with a different configuration. This is a three-stage flow-through unit with coal and reverse osmosis, the dimensions of which are only 26x43x13 cm. It is paired with an automatic pump unit 31.6×22.2×12.2 cm, which has a hydraulic pump and electronics for control. On the front panel, a scale with indicators shows the state of osmosis. The set includes a separate tap with a high spout, under which it is convenient to place the kettle. The water softens significantly after passing through the filter system, and there is no white plaque left on the walls of the dishes, which the owners like in the reviews. The porosity of the filter element is 5 microns.

We have included the product in the rating because of the high performance of 1.5 l / min. This cleaning speed does not require a storage tank to be connected and saves space. Another advantage of the filter is that it operates at an inlet pressure of 0.5 atm, which is practical for residents of the private sector.

Advantages

  • high spout of the tap;
  • filter resource 5000 l;
  • there is no tank, so the liquid does not stagnate when the filter is not used;
  • tasty and clean water.

disadvantages

  • 3 stages of cleaning against 5 among the leaders of the rating;
  • you need to find a place to place two blocks under the sink;
  • the plastic body rattles from its own pump;
  • does not work without electricity.

Atoll A-550 STD

Rating: 4.6

Atoll A-550 STD

The fourth place in the rating in the category of flow-through filters under the sink is given to a model from the Atoll brand. It is a system with 5 purification modules that contain a reverse osmosis membrane and carbon filling. A flow-through model with an 8L storage tank is supplied to keep a small supply for a family of 5-6 people. The temperature of the incoming stream is allowed from 5 to 40 degrees. The unit operates from a pressure of 2.8-6 atm, but does not have its own pump. The owners in the reviews share that the filter does not have to be hung up – it is quite good on their own cartridges.

In the opinion of our experts, the product should have been included in the rating due to the highest quality of cleaning. When measuring the input data with a TDS meter, the indicator is 450-600 mg / l, and 17-25 mg / l at the output. This is due to the use of good internal components with Dow hologram (international quality certificate). We recommend taking a closer look at the purifier for people who are especially sensitive to the taste of water.

Advantages

  • own tank for 8 liters;
  • multi-colored hoses for connection, so as not to confuse;
  • tubes are easily bent for supply to the fittings;
  • non-breaking tap on the tank.

disadvantages

  • productivity 0.16 l / min;
  • does not work well when the pressure drops below 2.8 bar;
  • you need a lot of space under the sink (36x40x18 cm – filter, 37x28x28 cm tank).

New Water Expert M420

Rating: 4.5

New Water Expert M420

The fifth place in the rating belongs to the flow-through model, made in a flat case. The cartridges are hidden in the box, so everything looks aesthetically pleasing and the casing can even be placed in plain sight, at the bottom of the wall. But unlike other representatives of this brand, the M420 filter does not have its own pump. But the five-stage cleaning system has been preserved. The owners in the reviews note that it is very convenient to change cartridges due to the in-line arrangement. A flask with copper balls is provided to break up chlorine molecules. The resin block is responsible for softening. To install the tap, it is enough to drill one hole in the metal sink and fix the bracket with a clamping nut.

We have included the filter in the rating of the best because of the ability to work at an inlet pressure of up to 45 atm. This is practical in private houses, where the pressure is created by a pumping station and can exceed the indicators in apartments. Another flow-through model is recommended for regions with a high salt content, since the cleaner has an ultra pore size of 0.01 microns.

Advantages

  • resin in the liquid softener module;
  • water does not stagnate;
  • high-quality thick plastic case;
  • aesthetic performance;
  • 5 stages of cleaning.

disadvantages

  • in regions with hard water, you have to change the cartridge every 3 months;
  • does not get rid of scale in the teapot (appears after 2 months);
  • neat installation is needed – it can leak on the fitting (weak nuts).

Aquaphor Crystal Eco H

Rating: 4.4

Aquaphor Crystal Eco H

The sixth place in the rating is occupied by a new flow-through system from 'Aquaphor'. This is a technology without reverse osmosis, containing a block with mechanical cleaning, coal, ionizing and additional cleaning capsules. In-line installation significantly saves space in the niche under the kitchen sink. Users in the reviews note the decent look of the crane with an easy valve stroke. The filter is intended for cold water, but its performance will not deteriorate even when the liquid passes, with a temperature of 45 degrees. Effectively removes the apparatus and free chlorine. The purifier is completed with a reservoir of 8 liters, since it works without a pump. This technical design provides a productivity of 2.5 l / min, but this is until the stock runs out.

Our experts have put the product in the rating due to the possibility of regenerating one of the filters at home. A third flow module with amber beads is subjected to salt treatment to restore the properties of the resin. This allows the water to be softened again and saves on maintenance.

Advantages

  • simple connection in 1 hour;
  • compact design;
  • the fourth cartridge is easily replaced with a plug as unnecessary;
  • regeneration of one of the filters is possible.

disadvantages

  • short hoses – 1 m;
  • plastic tubes are connected with plastic clips;
  • no reverse osmosis.

Geyser Prestige M (12 l)

Rating: 4.4

Geyser Prestige M (12 l)

The seventh place in the rating was awarded to a flow-through hydrofilter with six purification stages, including a reverse osmosis membrane. The equipment has three vertical and three horizontal modules. Supplied with a 12 L filter with a stable base. Users in the reviews say that it can be placed in a nearby cabinet if it does not fit under the sink, and if the water supply is turned off due to an accident, there will always be something to drink. The model removes iron, chlorine from water, mineralizes the composition and softens the hardness. For correct operation, a pressure of 3-10 atm is sufficient. In such conditions, the device will be able to pass up to 130 ml per minute. The flow model will clean up to 200 liters per day.

Our experts liked the product because of the presence of two taps on the gander, allowing you to choose the composition of the liquid – purified and mineralized. It is practical in a family or office where people have different tastes and preferences. In terms of the number of cleaning stages (6), the model also surpasses other participants in the rating.

Advantages

  • the presence of reverse osmosis;
  • tank for 12 liters;
  • pore size 1 μm;
  • can work with hot water up to 40 degrees;
  • the possibility of replacing the second stage with the 'Aragon' ion-exchange element.

disadvantages

  • productivity 130 ml / min;
  • takes up a lot of space under the sink;
  • weighs more than 10 kg;
  • you need a pressure of 3 atm.

BARRIER EXPERT Standard

Rating: 4.3

BARRIER EXPERT Standard

The eighth place in the rating category is occupied by a Russian product. The flow-through filter is made in an in-line casing with an upper bar, to which three cartridges are connected in series. The first is responsible for retaining sand, rust and various scales. The second traps chemical compounds of copper, lead, cadmium and toxic metals that enter the water supply system from the walls of pipes, fittings and pumps. The third block neutralizes chlorine, unpleasant taste and odor. The flow-through filter is completed with a high spout with a tap. The owners in the reviews are satisfied with the product and its price. Customers also like it for its compact dimensions of 26x36x10 cm. The porosity of the filter element is 5 microns. The equipment weighs 5.5 kg, so it is quite stable under the sink without additional fixation.

In our opinion, the filter deserves a place in the ranking due to the easy replacement of cartridges. This takes 2 seconds and is possible due to the swivel arm that allows you to move the unit away from the wall and unscrew it by hand. Another advantage of the flow-through apparatus is the throughput of 2 l / min, which is possible without the participation of a storage tank.

Advantages

  • module resource from the set – 10,000 l;
  • high throughput up to 2 l / min;
  • reduces scale;
  • a family of four will last for 1 year;
  • attractive cost.

disadvantages

  • the gasket from the kit for connecting to the water supply is narrower than necessary;
  • 3 stages of cleaning;
  • over time, it begins to drip from the tap of purified water.

The best flow filters with installation next to the sink

If there is no place under the sink for mounting a filter, then placing the device with cartridges in a conspicuous place is not a completely aesthetic solution. This is also irrelevant for rented housing. For such purposes, flow-through hydraulic filters with beautiful housings that hide the internal structure have been created. In the kitchen, such a device looks like a large coffee maker or a vase.

Atoll A-560E SailBoat

Rating: 4.9

Atoll A-560E SailBoat

The first place in the rating in this category belongs to the product from the Atoll brand. The flow-through model with reverse osmosis and five stages of cleaning looks very stylish – the vertical apparatus with rounded walls in white and blue will fit into any kitchen. Inside, all elements are placed horizontally and with their ends to the front removable cover, so that it is convenient to service. The stainless steel faucet is connected at the back. There are also nozzles for supplying water hoses. The filter is equipped with a tank of 8 liters, but in fact only half of the indicated volume is placed in it. The manufacturer carefully puts a bobbin with a fum in the kit so that the buyer has everything he needs for installation.

We have put the filter in the rating because it has an American Filmtec membrane. It reliably cleans liquids by allowing only water molecules to pass through. No virus will enter the house through it. Also, users in reviews praise the standard size of the cartridge connection, which allows you to replace them with cheaper ones if desired.

Advantages

  • filters well;
  • convenient change of cartridges;
  • relatively compact dimensions 24x42x41 cm;
  • completely removes plaque from the teapot.

disadvantages

  • high cost of replaceable modules;
  • the tank holds 4 liters instead of 8 liters;
  • does not work well with low pressure (there is no own pump);
  • in addition to the cartridges, reverse osmosis will have to be changed every 18 months.

Xiaomi Mi Water Purifier

Rating: 4.8

Xiaomi Mi Water Purifier

The second place in the ranking is occupied by flow-through development from the brand Xiaomi. The manufacturer has also used the latest technologies that increase the comfort of use. The filter has four stages of cleaning, including a reverse osmosis membrane. As a finishing element, a block with coconut shells and carbon granules is installed, which finally cleans the flow. The owners in the reviews share that it is extremely convenient to maintain the equipment – from the top of the case, access to each cartridge, equipped with a status light, opens up. A blinking orange light indicates that the flow-through cleaning element is about to be replaced. The system works with temperatures from 5 to 38 degrees. When the heat rises, the device will turn off automatically for protection.

Our experts liked the product with the ability to remotely monitor the condition via a smartphone. With Wi-Fi and an app, the owner can track cartridge yields and cleanup rates. But this design requires constant power from the electrical network.

Advantages

  • easy installation without drilling in the wall;
  • pump for increasing pressure;
  • sufficiently high productivity 1000 ml / min;
  • remote monitoring.

disadvantages

  • high price;
  • the first time after launch, there is a chemical aftertaste;
  • electrical connection required.

New Water T100

Rating: 4.7

New Water T100

The third place in the rating belongs to a budget flow-through apparatus with a vertical body. It has two stages of cleaning with coal and a mechanical filter. The body already contains a built-in faucet, and a long hose is pushed through an adapter to the gander of the mixer in the kitchen. You can move the installation around the table to any convenient place, which is what the owners like in the reviews. Customers note that the hydro filter does an excellent job of eliminating chlorine odors. Despite the absence of a reservoir, the productivity is up to 2000 ml / min. The porosity of the filter element is not inferior to branded models with 5 microns. But in terms of pressure, this unit even surpasses some, since it operates from 1.4 atm.

In our opinion, the product has earned a place in the ranking of the best, as one of the most affordable. This is a great option for a rented apartment to quickly install flow-through equipment and always have clean water. The filter also works correctly with a liquid temperature of 2 degrees, which will be appreciated by the owners of wells with submersible pumps in the cold season.

Advantages

  • compact size;
  • simple connection to the crane gander;
  • productivity up to 2 l / min;
  • works perfectly with pressure from 1.4 atm.

disadvantages

  • only 2 degrees of purification;
  • at first there is a smell of plastic;
  • it takes about 35 liters to drain at startup.

Golden Formula ZF – 2

Rating: 4.6

Golden Formula ZF - 2

Another vertical model in the ranking with installation next to the sink. The stainless steel faucet spout can be turned 180 degrees, which is convenient for a set of 5L plastic bottles in the sink. In the case of pouring water into a glass, it is practical to turn the gander closer to you. But the owners in the reviews warn that you should not abuse the rotation, because this is how the internal rubber band is frayed. The dimensions of the flow-through filter are 14x33x14 cm and it weighs only 1.5 kg. According to the average manufacturer's calculations for a family of three, such a flow-through filter should be enough for 1 year of operation.

We have included this item in the rating due to the ease of tracking filter replacement. The cartridge belongs to self-locking elements, that is, as it gets dirty, the jet becomes thinner, and so on until it stops completely, which signals the owners about the need to change the flow module. This is practical, because the degree of pollution of the incoming flow is different in each city, and it is not enough to adhere to one time indicator.

Advantages

  • productivity 2000 ml / min;
  • the ability to rearrange on the table;
  • removes chlorine and impurities;
  • filter element resource up to 2000 l.

disadvantages

  • from a high pressure of 6 atm, it can break a plastic tube;
  • if accidentally knocked over to the floor, the upper bulb will burst.

Geyser 1УЖ Euro

Rating: 4.5

Geyser 1УЖ Euro

The fifth place in the rating is a domestic product from the Geyser company. The vertical body includes a fine mesh for cleaning from scales and various particles. After that, the stream enters the inner compartment and is further purified with coal. The user receives the purified liquid through an integrated spout on the side. Connection to a standard mixer is via a diverter. The hose length of 1 m allows you to install the filter not only on the sink, but also to move it around the table. Customers praise the model for the transparent bottle that kids love. Thanks to this design, the product additionally decorates the kitchen or office corner. For stability, it is recommended to screw the base to the surface with four self-tapping screws, for which there are holes in the case.

We added a filter to the rating due to its affordable cost. Another flow-through unit is capable of operating at a low pressure of 0.5 atm, which will be appreciated by residents of the private sector during the irrigation season. The model is also suitable for hard water, as it softens it perfectly.

Advantages

  • works with hot water up to 40 degrees;
  • productivity 1500 ml / min;
  • a pressure of 0.5 atm is enough;
  • stylish filter design to decorate the kitchen.

  • when the pressure rises, the faucet begins to leak;
  • plastic tubes must be additionally fixed with clamps that are not included in the kit.

Aquaphor Modern 2

Rating: 4.4

Aquaphor Modern 2

In the sixth place in the rating is a product from the proven brand 'Aquaphor'. Unlike competitors, the manufacturer has made the body of the flow-through filter in an egg-like shape. The connection to the water supply is via a threaded connection with a kitchen tap. The divertor has its own shut-off valve that allows the flow to be directed into or past the filter. The owners like that the gander is much higher here than its counterparts, so it is more convenient to dial the kettle. The throughput is 1200 ml / min. The manufacturer promises that the cartridge will last for 4000 liters. The purification module includes Aqualen, which allows particles to pass through two times smaller than conventional mechanical meshes with charcoal.

We ranked the filter as the cheapest in its class. This is a great option for students, for a summer residence or a rented apartment. He also has several types of body colors, which can be used to match the interior. An engraved shift calendar is provided inside the module to mark when the last capsule was purchased and how long it lasted.

Advantages

  • module resource up to 4000 l;
  • productivity 1200 ml / min;
  • compact dimensions 9.5×13.6 cm;
  • Convenient switching between filtration and normal flow.

disadvantages

  • it takes some getting used to to switch the shut-off valves on the main valve;
  • the adapter sleeve does not fit all ganders;
  • weak gasket under the divider.

The best main flow filters

Trunk filters are installed at the entrance to a house or apartment. They are designed to retain sand, silt, scale and other particles. This protects the plumbing from plaque. If you use them in tandem with flow filters under the sink or next to it, then the resource of the latter increases significantly.

Fibos Fibos-5

Rating: 4.9

Fibos Fibos-5

The first place in the rating belongs to the one-stage model, designed for flow temperatures up to 95 degrees. In an hour, the main filter is capable of passing about 3000 liters. It is connected to the pipe through a 1 ¼ inch thread. The porosity of the inner mesh is 1 μm. The module operates at a pressure from 0.5 to 16 atm. The owners have left numerous reviews about it on forums and online stores, where everyone praises it for its reliability. Another advantage of the flow-through hydraulic filter is a permanent cartridge that does not need to be replaced. A pressure gauge is provided in the upper part of the case to see the current pressure in the system.

Our experts liked the main line filter for the presence of disinfection with silver ions, for which the model got into the rating. Disinfection effectively removes bacteria and germs, so there will be no unpleasant odor or color in the system. Due to its performance, it is even suitable for filling a pool in the yard.

Advantages

  • makes the shade of water more natural;
  • does not need to replace cartridges;
  • easy maintenance with periodic flushing;
  • pressure gauge on the body.

disadvantages

  • high price;
  • if the user does not know how to flush, then it is necessary to purchase automation;
  • some have frayed hairs on the cleaning module, which are changed under warranty.

Honeywell F 76S 3/4 “AA

Rating: 4.8

Honeywell F 76S 3/4

In second place in the rating is a filter with a brass body, where two threads are provided for connecting to the mains. A stainless mesh with a fraction of 100 microns is responsible for the retention of sand and rust. For draining and flushing, a plastic valve and a lower branch pipe are provided. The cleaner is designed for temperatures up to 40 degrees and pressures from 1.5 to 16 atm. Although it does not provide a replacement cartridge, if the inside of the microfilter breaks, you can buy a separate one. When the throughput decreases, it is enough to disassemble the middle compartment and clean the mesh.

According to our experts, the product deserves a place in the rating for endurance. The manufacturer is sure that the flow-through main filter will last up to 10 years, but the owner's reviews show that it has been working for 12 years or more. It also has a transparent body that allows you to observe the degree of contamination and schedule the frequency of flushing.

Advantages

  • porosity of 100 microns allows large particles to pass through;
  • if not rinsed, it turns sour.

Fibos Fibos-1

Rating: 4.7

Fibos Fibos-1

The third place in the rating is occupied by the most popular model on the Internet, which has more than half a million reviews. With a capacity of 16.7 l / min, the line element is optimal for an apartment or a private house. It is allowed to be mounted on both cold and hot water pipes – the module can withstand temperatures up to 95 degrees. All parts are assembled with high quality, and the body is made of solid brass. An inner frame is provided to ensure that the mesh can withstand the impact of scale. The flow-through cleaner will be able to work already at an input pressure of 0.5 atm.

This is another model worthy of the rating with germicidal cleaning. The built-in block with silver ions actively fights microbes, so some people drink water without additional filtration. It is also not required to change the cartridges in it – it is enough to put a hose on the branch pipe and drain the sludge into the sewer.

Advantages

  • high quality seals;
  • full brass body;
  • convenient valve for draining sediment;
  • suitable for temperatures up to 95 degrees.

disadvantages

  • reduces pressure;
  • a thin wire mesh can crumble from water hammer;

New Water A082

Rating: 4.6

New Water A082

This place in the rating belongs to the domestic model, which has a lower price. The main unit is made in a compact body, where two internal threads are provided for connection, the nozzles of which do not go beyond the dimensions of the cylindrical body. The in-line filter consists of three parts: a cast brass head, a stainless outer flask and an inner polypropylene cartridge. This device is suitable for rough cleaning, but the owners share that for high-quality work, you have to change the consumable item every month.

We added the filter to the rating because of the minimum pressure of 0.01 atm, which is sufficient for the flow-through apparatus to allow the jet to flow to the tapping points. This is true for residents of the upper floors or in the private sector. The equipment can also be used on lines with hot water, since the operating temperature is allowed up to 93 degrees.

Advantages

  • stainless block;
  • compact design;
  • applied laser engraving protects against counterfeiting;
  • universal in terms of operating temperature.

disadvantages

  • only 30 days warranty;
  • chrome plating peels off;
  • rust may appear on the bottom of the case itself.

Aquaphor Viking

Aquaphor Viking

The fifth place in the rating is given to the Viking trunk model with a fiber porosity of 5 microns. This is a two-stage capsule with mechanical and chemical cleaning, which the owners like in the reviews. The dimensions of the case are 18x59x18 cm. The filter is made entirely of stainless steel and retains its attractive appearance for a long time. Even if it is visible in the bathroom or kitchen, it will not spoil the interior. The throughput is up to 25 l / min, so in 40 minutes up to 1 m³ of liquid will pass through the flowing purifier. This allows the module to be used to fill the children's courtyard pool.

In our opinion, the flow-type main filter has earned a place in the rating as having the longest cartridge resource. For this product, the service life of the replaceable module reaches 100,000 liters, which exceeds the performance of other brands several times.

Advantages

  • convenient disassembly of the case for cleaning;
  • stainless flask;
  • removes not only sand, but also chlorine;
  • flows up to 25 l / min.

disadvantages

  • the high height of 59 cm requires the expansion of the technical hatch in the niche in some apartments;
  • no drainage – only complete disassembly for flushing;
  • need replaceable modules;
  • drops and dried marks on the block surface are clearly visible.

Geyser Typhoon 10 SL 3/4 filter

Rating: 4.4

Geyser Typhoon 10 SL 3/4 filter

The 'Typhoon' model closes this category of the rating. This is a very solid in-line filter made entirely of stainless steel. Coarse cleaning in the form of a nylon mesh works inside. The consumable element tolerates various temperatures well up to 95 degrees. A plastic plug is provided in the bottom to drain the sediment. Disassembly of the body is carried out without keys – there is a collar pin with a screw that tightens the clamp around the bulb. The mesh porosity is 10 µm. Connecting thread ¾ fits many plastic pipes without adapters. The owners in the reviews note that the filter walls are made of thick metal – this allows you to calmly tighten the fitting without fear of cracks, as is the case with plastic.

The product is recognized by us as the best in terms of price and assembly quality. This is a robust box, suitable for installation in a room with high humidity (bath, sauna), which is also facilitated by the temperature range. The service life of the filter element is one year. High performance up to 45 l / min is optimal not only for domestic needs, but also for filling large containers.

Advantages

  • attractive design that does not need to be hidden;
  • removing the flask from the clamp with a screw (keys are not needed);
  • passes up to 45 l / min;
  • drain plug for flushing without dismantling.

disadvantages

  • there is no pressure gauge in the kit (although there is a connector for it);
  • cannot be installed low above the floor, since removing the bulb requires a headroom of 70 cm;
  • it is inconvenient to get the hook into the slot when the fixing bar is installed in the upper position.
