The 1/2″ Silt Filter Bucket is designed to work with the 1/2″ Ram Pump from Land To House.
This bucket does two things.
How it works. Water Enters into the top of the bucket depositing silt on the bottom and letting air bubble up to the lid and out the vent holes. Air free water then exits out the middle of the bucket through the drive pipe.
When do I need a Silt Filter Bucket?
The Silt Filter and Air diffuser bucket is not right for every install. If your water supply is deep you might not need a silt filter bucket. Adding the bucket can greatly improve your ram pump install by providing a water source that does not have air but if your source is deep the bucket might float away. Also if you have limited head pressure to work with the bucket filter can reduce that head pressure further.
