Why does BRS recommend this?
Anytime we are setting up a booster pump system we will install a DMFit strainer before it to keep the pump running quiet and lasting a long time. A sediment filter before a booster pump will help your expensive pump last a lifetime. The DMFit filter strainer will only remove larger particles that can damage the booster pumps internals while leaving smaller sediments that do not cause any harm through for your RODI sediment filter.
Keep sediment out of your Aquatec Booster pump with the DMFit Filter Strainer.

Hesitant to use stainless in a salt water solution.
Also, wondering if you’d elect to use it on the suction or pressure side of the dosing pump?
Thank you for reaching out to us. With the design of the unit, you want to have the source coming in the side and the filtered water out the top.
Please let me know if you need anything further and take care!
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.
