So, by using the revolutionary Seradisc Filter instead, you get these benefits:
reduced vortexing and cavitation
Air and cavitation are the two things that dramatically affect pump performance and longevity. Air induced into a pump will interfere with the hydraulic action and significantly decrease its efficiency. This will require it to operate for longer periods at an increased temperature, thereby consuming more power and decreasing the life of the pump. The Seradisc Filter has a larger surface area with a low velocity diffused flow which gives the benefits of prevention of vortexing and subsequent cavitation.
variable grade screening
Seradiscs are designed and manufactured with integral ‘springs’ which separate the discs and allow for the discs to be compressed for variable grade screening. The standard 16 disc filter will screen particulates of up to 5mm and above. Here's the benefit of fitting a Seradisc Filter - by adding more discs you can vary the screen grade. For example if you add more discs to make a maximum of 42 discs, the filter will screen particulates of 0.1mm and above. And you can grade the screen to any size in between.
strong and durable construction
The Seradisc Filter is manufactured to a high standard using modern compounds, giving benefits of a light and flexible build combined with strength and durability to keep it operational for many years to come. And it will not rust or degrade!
For the threaded pipe and pipe connector methods, you will need to remove the partition in the connection adaptor by knocking it out! Ensure the other adaptor at the rear of the filter retains its partition.
Either use the EPDM coupling (supplied with the kit) secured in place with the worm-drive clips, screw 2" BSP threaded pipe into the filter adaptor or use a standard 2" BSP pipe fitting.
