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.

Product Questions

Hello, I have a water softener system and a brs drinking water system. Could I replace the standard 5micron sediment filter for a 1micron filter since the softener is prefiltering?
Question by: Peter Traud on Jul 13, 2023, 2:19 PM
Hey there,

Thanks for the question. Yes that would be perfectly fine to switch that over to the 1 micron sediment filter. Thanks!

ROSave.Z sediment filter, 1micron versus 5 micron
Question by: Wayne jones on Jan 26, 2023, 12:22 PM
Hey Wayne,

Thanks for the question. The 5 micron will allow more particulate through as it is a larger micron size.

Do we need to run water through to waste on a new sediment filter like on a carbon filter to get rid of dust and other particles from manufacturing? If so, how much water or how to tell when it's clean enough?
Question by: John on Dec 14, 2022, 9:30 AM
Hey there,
Thank you for reaching out to us. You do not have to run water through it.

Please let me know if you need anything further and take care!

Hello, I have moved to a new house which has well water. What filters do you suggest? I currently have a 150 gps 5 stage system. Should I add additional sediment filters? Thanks very much!
Question by: Richard on Mar 23, 2022, 11:07 AM
Hey Richard, thanks for the qeustion! These are the best sediment filters we have in the 1 micron. You can definitely add second one to the front end of the unit if you want but that is up to you. Could affect your PSI slightly just as an FYI

What should I enter into my filter monitor for months and/or volume for replacement for this 1 micron element?
Question by: John Cologgi on Mar 21, 2022, 4:43 PM
Hey John, thanks for the question! Although the lifespan of these is completely dependent on your source water, they generally last about 4-6 months.

Where are the 1 and 5 micron filters made?
Question by: Ed on Jan 7, 2018, 7:11 AM
Thanks for contacting BRS!
Both of these products are made in the United States. Have a great day!
Answer by: Josh Cuta on Jan 11, 2018, 2:54 PM
What kind of pressure drop can I expect with either the 5 micron or 1 micron filter?
Question by: Bob on Jun 29, 2016, 1:00 PM
Hey there,
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.

Is it ok to run a 5 micron filter then a 1 micron filter like a pre filter?
Question by: Angelo Gonzalez on May 19, 2016, 11:41 PM
Great question! Absolutely :)

Is this a 20" RODI filter?
Question by: Steven on Jan 20, 2014, 4:12 AM
Hi Steven,
No they are not. These are standard 10x2.5" size filters.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Jan 20, 2014, 4:12 AM
Is this filter any better then the standard sediment filter. I'm using my set up. For my reef tank.
Question by: Dustin w on Dec 20, 2013, 1:19 PM
Hi Dustin,
This filter will remove roughly twice the amount of sediment before clogging compared to the regular filters.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Dec 20, 2013, 1:19 PM
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!
Question by: Chris on Oct 11, 2013, 6:52 AM
Hey Chris,
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.

Hi can these replace the normal sediment filters in the first stage?
Question by: Kerry D on Sep 4, 2013, 3:22 AM
They sure can! The filters themselves are all standard 10" filters and basically interchangeable.
