Rusco Complete Sediment Trapper Filters (Cold Water)

Product Image

Specifically for water that has a high concentration of particulate, Rusco Sediment Trapper filters are a high-capacity, low-maintenance and low cost sediment filtration solution. Available for both cold and hot water, Sediment Trapper filters are perfect as whole house water filters, for solar hot water systems, in commercial applications and for irrigation systems.

Rusco filtration systems use a unique separation technology to separate sediment particles from your water supply. Rusco filter systems are available in 13 different mesh sizes to filter out larger sediment particles before they damage household appliances or industrial machines. The Rusco filter screen elements can be cleaned and reused without tools, saving you time and money.
