Has anyone used a LAKOS Twist II Clean Filter?

    In trying to deal with my sediment problems I have come across Ads and YouTube Videos about this filter.

    It seems like a quality filter and I like the fact that I should be able to just backflush it instead of changing filters all the time.

    It has a mesh filter and the finest mesh they offer is rated at 105 microns. I wonder if this will be fine enough to remove a good portion of the very fine silt(no sand, probably clay) that rapidly clogs the element in my 10 x 4.5 "Whole House Filter".

    I am trying to get things to the point where I would not have to replace the WHF Cartridge more that ever 2 months, hopefully longer.

    Anyway, I would appreciate any feedback from anyone using the LAKOS Twist II Clean Filter.

    Thanks, Joel

    I have one of these on a pump and dump geo-thermal system, and my customer loves it. He says it's extremely easy to maintain, even with all his silt.

    I have one on a well. I like it OK. I think Lakos makes very high quality stuff.

    I'm sure Lakos makes good quality but if you are talking about an ultra-fine clay silt, I doubt 105 microns would stop it. I have a Banjo with 100 mesh and it only stops sand, not clay. My BIRM iron filter stops clay.

    Thanks for the replies.

    The 105 mesh does concern me and I am sure it would not catch anywhere near all of the sediment, but I wonder if it would catch enough to significantly extend the lift of my WHF.
