Hello,

First of all, Just wanted thank you dittohead and Bannerman for their help!

What parts are needed to put filter together...

Tank
Valve Head
Bypass Valve
Raiser Tube ( Distribution tube ? same thing ? )
Gravel
Media

Any other little parts ... do I just put the distribution tube > gravel > media > and screw valve on ? and connect water and out line ?

Are there any other little parts that I'm missing here ?

Is there special name for pipe that connects one filter to other one ?

Do I need pre filter on city water ?


Thank you

Plumbing connectors, top Screen, bottom screen, valve configuration parts (internal, injectors, flow controls etc valves must be sized to the media/tank size), Drain linve flow controls, etc...

In general it will cost much more to assemble yourself. Certain prices, volume discounts, contract issues etc can be hidden in complete systems. Similar to buying a car in parts or as a whole unit.
