1.25" Floating Inlet Filter - Our 1.25" Floating Inlet Filter also known as a 1.25" Floating Extractor or a 1.25" Floating Intake Filter, floats inside your tank suspended just below the water surface where the cleanest water lies. From this position the water is extracted by your pump whether you are using a Surface Pump or a Submersible Pump. A ball float suspends the intake about 8" to 10" below the water level. Floating Inlet Filters greatly increase the life of your inline sediment filters as it pulls water from where the cleanest and most oxygenated water resides in the tank! An important component for any irrigation, toilet flushing, whole house rain harvesting or well water storage application.
