Why a filter?

Particles can enter the domestic water distribution network via the building connection pipe due to repairs and renovations on the public supply network. Entrained particles such as lime, rust and sand can impair the function of the valves installed in the drinking water installation.

Variability

GF Piping Systems’ filter range provides the most suitable solution for every drinking water installation.

Maintenance

From automatic backflushing to rinsing, filter removal and manual cleaning, GF Piping Systems filters can be maintained with minimum effort.

Quality

All parts are made from high-quality metal and plastic, resulting in a long-life filter element that can withstand high operating pressures with ease.

Hygiene

The filter is the first level of protection of the drinking water installation. Thanks to the innovative filter technology, no particles can impair the water circle.

Advantages of a filter

The hygiene aspect

The filter is located at the point where the drinking water installation enters the building, therefore preventing unwanted particles from washing in. If the filter insert is not maintained on a regular basis, bacteria on the filter mesh can multiply and get into the drinking water.

 

The financial aspect

The filter acts as a protective element and safeguards the valves in the drinking water installation from malfunction. This significantly reduces repair costs.

How does a filter work?

The filter is usually installed at the point where the water enters the building. Washed in particles can be stopped by the filter insert and protect the drinking water installation. The fine filter is available in a range of versions. The combined design of the fine filter with a pressure reducing valve (figure) first filters the particles through the filter mesh and the water then flows towards the pressure reducing valve, where the pressure is adjusted accordingly.

  1. Water flows through the drinking water filter
  2. Water pressure is adjusted accordingly 

Maintenance

We recommend replacing the filter insert every 6 months.

Contact your plumber for filter insert replacement.

Backflush Filters

Made of hardwearing plastic and metal parts, these filters have an innovative backwashing feature that cleans the filter element where the impurities are retained. This ensures efficient operation while keeping maintenance to a minimum.

Fine Filters

GF Piping Systems fine filters are designed for drinking water installations in order to protect the piping system from particles.

Slanted Filters

The GF Piping Systems slanted filter range is made of extremely durable metal that can withstand high operating pressures. The integrated filter element protects drinking water installations from particles.
