This is the prefilter for the booster pump and is the type Aquatec recommends. Its a large mesh strainer and while its not serviceable, its really only designed to catch very large particles like sand (smaller particles pass through both the strainer and the pump just fine). Most folks don't ever clog the filter but in the event that it is, it would need to be replaced.

Not only to protect the booster pump ! By Aquarium Network on 1/7/2017Aquarium Network would recommend this product to a friendThis item is listed to protect your booster pump BUT it can also protect your float valve from becoming clogged with ?? In my company we have at least 100 float valves in different configurations and occasionally a float valve will malfunction because of something blocking the small pinhole in the valve. weather it is gravity feed or high pressure RO feed it will block that small piece of ( sand, plastic,undissolved buffer or whatever) that fell in the makeup water vat.
A Must Have Period ! By Xavier on 11/29/2015Xavier would recommend this product to a friendThis is a no brainer, this will protect your $200.00 pump for just a few dollars..
worth the peace of mind By yummy on 2/6/2015yummy would recommend this product to a friendJust added booster pump. Would not have done the upgade without having installed the filter inline with it. Why take the chance off shortening the life of the pump for the cost of the filter? Definitely worth the peace of mind.
Small Investment - Great reward By CraigD on 1/30/2015CraigD would recommend this product to a friendThis simple device truly adds years to your RODI and/or booster pump. I clean it every 6 months whether or not it needs it. Unscrew the cap, rinse the screen and reassemble.
It works! By Zukari on 9/2/2014Zukari would recommend this product to a friendThis does what it says it does! I would recommend getting some double sided velcro to stick this to the wall/pump or whatever... it does vibrate and make an obnoxious sound.
Simple and effective By jpooch00 on 5/21/2014jpooch00 would recommend this product to a friendI got this neat little unit to use as the first defense sediment filter for my under-sink RO system booster pump.
Ultra simple and a snap to install.
The good folks at Bulk Reef Supply are also great to work with and offer awesome customer communications and support, BTW.
Very inexpensive addition By Manfred on 2/18/2014Manfred would recommend this product to a friendThis strainer will save my booster pump and 1st stage of my RODI system from being clogged with sediment in the water. It is an inexpensive addition that is well worth the money. Buy it and watch the return on your investment.
Why not By RANDY on 1/23/2013RANDY would recommend this product to a friendWe sell pumps at our store, and the leading cause for failure is something foreign matter in the pump. So it is a no brainer to install an 8.99 part to protect a 100.00 dollar pump.
