Make Your Own Filtration Test Kit - Any Jar Will Do!

Posted by Lakos Marketing on Wednesday, January 27, 2016

When you've got sand in your water, all it takes is a clear jar to decide if a LAKOS Sand Separator can solve that problem.

Use any clear jar. And all it takes is about 3-4 minutes. Here's how:

  1. Get a sample of the sand coming through the water system. From the hot water heater. From the toilet tank. From a plugged cartridge or screen filter. Whatever you can get your hands on from within your water system.

  2. Add the sand to a jar of clean water and shake the jar to mix the sand & water.

  3. Let the mixture stand and watch what happens:

    • • Particles that settle to the bottom within 2-3 minutes   can be removed with a LAKOS Pump Protection         Sand Separator.

    • • Particles that settle to the bottom within 3-4 minutes   can be removed with a LAKOS Sand Separator           installed after the pump.
