Bacfree rocket-style outdoor water filter

This is the Bacfree ER-19 rocket-style outdoor water filter in my house. The date of photo taken shows that I have installed it for quite some times. This water filter comes with 10 years housing warranty and 5 years media warranty.

It is contructed with food grade SUS 304 stainless steel, durable and will not deform, decolourize or degrade under the hot sun. The cylinder volume is 42.9 litres, with flow rate of 1,900 litres/hour. Its working water pressure is 10-100 psi. Inside the cylinder is 6 layers of filtering media, ie. stone, crystal, coarse quartz sand, fine quartz, anthracite and coal base activated carbon. It comes with a water pressure meter, handy for us to monitor the water pressure level.

The Bacfree people washed my water tank for free when the came and installed the filter. They had even taken some sample water from my tap for lab test after installation, and here is the result they sent to me:

The filtering media of this outdoor water filter is maintenance free. I need to perform backwash with its 3 valves once per week. With this outdoor water filter installed, I can have peace of mind that the water flows into my house is clean and safe. The little filter on my washing machine is still maintaining its white even after years.

The instruction is labelled on the outdoor filter.

There are 3 valves, labelled 1, 2, 3.

When the biggest valve is pointing up, it is under normal operation. When the biggest valve is pointing right, it is under backwash operation.

The other 2 valves, one is outlet into the house, another is outlet for backwash water. Before backwash, close the outlet into the house, and open the outlet for backwash water. After backwash, return all valves to their normal position.
