Why does BRS recommend this?
GE produces one of the best sediment filters with true progressive fibers. They will last longer and outperform almost any other sediment filter in its price range. GE specializes in water treatment and is what we use in our RODI systems for the best performance.
ROsave.Z Depth Cartridge Filters is a revolutionary Z.Plex filter engineered by GE. These filters are specifically made for reverse osmosis pretreatment applications and other filtered water applications.
ROSave.Zs' Z.Plex technology provides great performance:
- Up to twice the life of conventional depth filters
- Up to 50% lower pressure drop
- Up to 100% greater dirt holding capacity
- Superior SDI reduction
- Melt-bonded exterior ensures no media migration
- Provides lower total cost of filtration operations
- NSF 42 certified, FDA compliant
ROSave.Z cartridge filters are made from thermally bonded fibers of polypropylene. GE Water & Process Technologies certifies that it uses no resin binders, lubricants, antistatic or release agents or other additives in the manufacture of these cartridges and that the resin used for manufacturing the filter media meets the food contact requirements of U.S.FDA 21CFR regulations. When required, specify only FDA compliant sealing materials and end-adapters.GE filter cartridges are designed and manufactured for resistance to a wide range of chemical solutions. Conditions will vary with each application and users should carefully verify chemical compatibility.
Great Product By Santa Jack on 9/25/2018Santa Jack would recommend this product to a friendClear water in my 300 gal tank within a day of starting the filter.
Great filter By Merle on 3/1/2018Merle would recommend this product to a friendI wont buy any other filter for my system!
The worse your water, the more youn need these premium filters By Dave on 2/5/2018Dave would recommend this product to a friendThese premium filters are worth the money. I'm filtering some pretty crappy city water with 500+ TDS. These premium filters last a lot longer and don't need to be replaced nearly as often. Well worth the money.
Great filter! By Scott on 11/21/2017Scott would recommend this product to a friendNot much to say besides it's a great filter to use as your first stage of your RO/DI unit!
Awesome filter By David on 8/15/2017David would recommend this product to a friendGreat prefilter. Turns orange from my local water and I change it every month or two.
Good filter By Brofish on 7/10/2017Brofish would recommend this product to a friendWorks great. Always keep a couple extra on hand.
Good By Don on 6/2/2017Don would recommend this product to a friendThis is a good filter at a great price. Does clog fast if you have high TDS. I have 400 TDS.
They work. By Livebait58 on 10/22/2016Livebait58 would recommend this product to a friendThese sediment filters pull tons of orange sediment from my water so that it doesn't make it to the carbon filters.
some of the better ones available on the market By DrZoidburg on 9/13/2016DrZoidburg would recommend this product to a friendThese are some of the better ones available on the market according to spec sheets. I have a deep well with water that has a lot of silica, and some other bits. I am not sure what they are. I am using a prefilter before the booster pump and the smallest micron filter I can find. This filter gets a lot of it out but not all of the finest silica. Lasts about 180-200 gallons before I change it out usually.
Great Filter! By Jon Q. on 5/3/2016Jon Q. would recommend this product to a friendI switched to ROSave and it extended the life of my DI Resin. I saw the results immediately. A+++
Wear Out Quickly By Jeremy on 4/17/2016Jeremy wouldn't recommend this product to a friendMy water supply coming in is around 400ppm and 60psi. These filters clog up on me within four months and well under 1000 gallons of water filtered.
Low Cost, Great Product! By Sean on 1/14/2016Sean would recommend this product to a friendSwitched over to these to see if they last longer and they do in fact. I'd rather pay a few bucks more, for less maintenance in switching out filters

Is this a 20" RODI filter?
No they are not. These are standard 10x2.5" size filters.
Is it ok to run a 5 micron filter then a 1 micron filter like a pre filter?
What kind of pressure drop can I expect with either the 5 micron or 1 micron filter?
Not really a pressure drop more than 1 PSI with the sediment filter. When these clog you will notice more than 5% drop in pressure.
What is the difference between 1 micron filter and 5 micron filter? I am using it for drinking water. Which one is good for me? Thanks!
The 1 micron filter will remove most particles smaller then 1 micron, compared to 5 with the 5 micron filter. In theory a 1 micron filter will remove more stuff but the downside is that for most folks they clog a lot faster so most folks use 5 micron filters as they offer the best balance between cost and performance. Everyone's water supply is a bit different though, so if you can use a 1 micron filter and not have it clog rapidly on your water supply then use the 1 micron.
Where are the 1 and 5 micron filters made?
Both of these products are made in the United States. Have a great day!
Is this filter any better then the standard sediment filter. I'm using my set up. For my reef tank.
This filter will remove roughly twice the amount of sediment before clogging compared to the regular filters.
