The Only Quick-Connect Misting Systems!
Are Filters Needed for Mister Systems?
The size of a nozzle opening is roughly the thickness of a human hair, and that can easily be clogged with a grain of sand or a granule of rust, that is why it is essential that the nozzles are protected with a 5 Micron sediment filter.
With well water that has enough pressure of at least 45 psi (Pounds per Square Inch), a 5 Micron sediment filter is recommended so that nozzles won't get clogged easily.
When there is not enough pressure (below 45 psi), (or to pull out water from a water container), a booster pump is needed, and that requires at least 20 Micron sediment pre-filter to protect the pump (i.e. a minimum of 20 Micron), which is comparable to our Stainless Steel Screen Filter. However we also offer a 5 Micron Sediment filter which is even better. Note: the smaller the Micron size the finer is the filtration.
When using a booster pump, a 5 Micron sediment post-filter is also needed to protect the nozzles from clogging, and to stabilize the pump output pressure.
If the water is hard, then a Polyphosphate filter is needed to prevent or reduce, (depending on how hard the water is) lime build up and clogging the nozzles due to calcium present in hard water.

Polyphosphate: the filtering media, treats the hardness of the water by changing the molecular structure of Calcium. Here is how it works in layman terms: When you look at Calcium under the microscope you will notice it has claw shape crystals, those claws are the building blocks of lime and scale and are the cause of lime buildup (after misting with regular tap water). What the Polyphosphate does is that it removes those claws, and by declawing the Calcium it becomes smooth, more like pebble surface, and that is why although the Calcium is still present in the water, yet it had changed its structure and runs smoothly through the nozzles and does not accumulate to clog them.

Note: any filter used would cause a slight pressure drop.
IMPORTANT: filters are unidirectional, when installing them, please note the flow direction on the filter label of the 6" filters, and on the side of one of the fittings of the 2" filters. The arrow should point towards the misters.
