Floating Water Filter
The unit measures 36 in. high and 10 in. in diameter and is made from aluminum. Flotation foam inside the unit causes it to float. The bottom 24 in. is perforated and is equipped with a 1-in. dia. polyurethane element that works as a filter to remove most particles commonly associated with pump or valve problems. Because the element is made from polyurethane, it is washable and can be reused. The element will filter out almost all separate visible particles. If the water being filtered has dissolved mud in it, the discharge may be cloudy but small particles which tend to clog nozzles, valves, sprinkler heads or pumps will be trapped inside the element.
The bottom of the unit can be hooked up to a pump or gravity feed line.
Sells for $204.50 shipping included. Other models are also available. (John Smith, Solarn Mfg. Co., Inc., 406 Maple, Jerseyville, Ill. 62052 (ph 618 498-5612; Website: www.solarn.com)
