Filtration is the process of forcing a liquid or gas through a porous medium to remove solid particles. The particles are measured or classified in microns. One micron equals 0.0000394".
Absolute-rated filter cartridges will retain at least 99% of particles of a particular micron size.
As a general rule if you are performing ten treatments per week then change filters every 3/4 months. More frequent changes may be required if your water is dirty or you are doing a lot more treatments.
