RIO-2000 Water Filter System

Rio 2000 ceramic filter system
Reduces: Bacteria + Cyst
Filter type: Sterasyl
Replacement filter cost:
Replace after:2 years

Rio-2000 will provide 3 gallons a minute flow with 60 psi water pressure.  These ceramic filters offer absolute 1 micron filtration using Doulton® Sterasyl™ Ceramic filters.   This system is ideal for a smaller foot print using spring water, or well water.  The ceramic filters will last for several years and will require cleaning as needed to improve water flow as fine particles build up on the filter candles.  


When additional flow is needed, two units can be installed in parallel to each other to provide additional water flow.  A sediment filter can be installed prior to the Rio 2000 to reduce the frequency of cleaning the ceramic candles if heavy sediment is a problem. Due to the small micron size of the filters, water flow is reduced and system will work better serving a limited number of fixtures.  This unit is great for the homesteader who does not mind doing some routine maintenance.


In addition, a water filter housing with a Carbon filter could be installed following the Rio-2000 to remove any chemicals or chlorine from the water.
