The Watts 12 x 52 Inch 56 Litre Micro-Z Turbidity Removal Water Filter System is the ideal system to remove turbidity. Turbidity is the muddiness created by stirring up sediment or having foreign particles suspended in water. Typical examples of Turbidity in NTUs (Nephelometric Turbidity Units) are shown below.
The Osmio 12 x 52 Inch 56 Litre Micro-Z Turbidity Removal Water Filter System uses an appropriate blend of filtration media including Micro-Z which provides superior filtration media through granular filter media. It outperforms conventional multimedia materials due to its unique structure, allowing particulate to penetrate deeply into the filter bed to provide superior filtration at increased flow rates. The system also includes an appropriate volume of NSF Certified Filox-R media and under-bed gravel.
Due to higher filtration rates, using this system means the system can be smaller with more capacity
Micro-Z @ 2.8 X loading : Typical sand filter @ 1 X loading; Typical multimedia filter @ 1.6 X loading
Due to media design – lower micron rating – as low as 5 micron; Typical sand filter – 40 microns; Typical multi media filter – 20/30 microns; Typical Filter AF filter – 10 microns
Backwash flowrate typically (beneath 6 m3/hr) under service flow
Osmio Micro-Z granular filter media outperforms conventional multimedia materials due to its unique structure, allowing particulate to penetrate deeply into the filter bed to provide superior filtration at increased flow rates.

The system from Osmio has really done the trick. We had very good service from start to finish. I would recommend Osmio without hesitation. They took the time to interpret our water analysis properly and guided us to the best system for our borehole.
