      MultiCyclone 16 Centrifugal Pre-Filter

      Does anyone have experience with the use of MultiCyclone 16 Centrifugal Pre-Filter ? Does reduce a water flow ? What is the best price for it ?

      I don't believe many people still use them. They added a bunch of head pressure to the pump and didn't filter well for our application. I believe they are more of a swimming pool water filter.

      It adds 2ft of head pressure to the pump. I had one in my system for a few years and it did pull some particles out, but not as a prefilter. The idea is that it catches smaller particles around 60m-80m. While it does, not at the greatest effectiveness level as something like an RDF. I would pass on it and save your money towards something better.

      Too much back pressure.

      We had one on our system a couple years. Ours was mounted on top of the output of the pump. It did catch some really fine particles but not enough worth the expense. I could be wrong but I think they are better suited for high pressure systems. I have one at a good price.

      Use a sieve with a 200micron screen....or a RDF if the budget allows.
