Filter 5mm to be fitted to outlet pipe from reservoir to filter water. Will fit 5mm (O.D.) pipe. For use with Autopot pot sets and system that use the original Aquavalve with its 3mm (I.D.) inlet. The new Aquavalve 5 has a 5mm (I.D.) inlet and uses 9mm (O.D) Autopot piping and 9mm (O.D piping) Filters.
The Filter 5mm should be used with the 30 ltr & 47 ltr tanks. It is simply inserted inside the tank once the 5mm pipe is pushed through the 6mm Top Hat Grommet at the bottom of the tank. It can be easily serviced and will float to the top if it comes detached from the tube, this will not happen if you make sure you have pushed the filter firmly into the tube.
The sponge in side filter is designed to trap any particles that would clog up your system. Simply clean out sponge every 4 weeks.
