Sand In Your Home Water Supply? We Have Several Solutions!

Sand can clog faucets, showerheads, icemakers, and washers. Sometimes blocking flow and sometimes actually damaging the appliance. Regardless, it is still a hassle and needs to be removed from water.

The SandMaster PLUS centrifugal separator from LAKOS is uniquely designed for home applications. It easily removes sand from water without the maintenance of cartridge filters or screen filters. Automated purge can be easily installed for a truly hands-free maintenance-free operation.

  • For heavier amounts of sand or corrosive water applications, we recommend the LAKOS ILB/ILS for longer durability.
