Now THAT is something I've never heard of or seen before. I see that they are sold with different mesh options (30 for large chunks up to 1000 for super fine sediment).
Nice not having to buy filters, but this looks like it is more for larger sediment in water, maybe from a well or non-city water source? I found some posts online where people install both a spin down, and a big blue style filter but those are mostly people on a well and have sand and stuff, which I do not.
I think the Big blue style filter might be a better option for me on city?
Would it make sense for me to get a whole house filter at all with city water? Or maybe consider one that has 2 stages to run carbon afterwards to rid of some of the chemical/chlorine? Water seems to be clean (Not mentioning things like chlorine and chemical) for the most part but figured a whole house filter might be ideal. I'll probably invest in a small reverse osmosis filter with a small holding tank for drinking water.
