How do I know which size cartridge to order? 50, 100, 200 ,500 micron?

The size cartridge you’ll need to order depends on the size and the amount of sediment it will have to treat. The smaller sizes will remove the most sediment, but excess or large particles can clog them quickly and require frequent flushing. If you notice that you need frequent flushing, consider using a larger size screen and using additional treatment after the sediment filter to catch the fine particles.
