Good day folks, Rod from My Water Filter here today. And what we're gonna do is have a look at replacing a sediment cartridge, it's a pleated, so a pleated sediment cartridge. Widely used on the whole houses, mainly for rainwater, dirty water. They hold a lot more sediment, and allow a very good flow rate through. Okay, so pretty much you change it exactly the same as any other cartridge, but we'll take it out and give you a look at it, alright? So this is a, it's been used system, still got nice and lubricated in the top thread, so you'll notice that when I loosen it, pretty easy to loosen, and it's gonna be undone very easy as well.
So it just shows you, so what you can do is just keep a little bit of grease on this top thread as well, and it'll keep it lubricated. It just it makes it very easy to change the cartridges, and to change the filters inside. So here we go. Now as you can see, that's the top of the pleated. We're gonna pull him out. This is a 20 inch by four point five. So whether it was a ten or two point five wide, whatever it is, same process, it's all the same. As you can see on the ends, there's actually no washer, okay.
So inside is the lug on the bottom. The lug's gotta fit in that hole, but there's no washer on here, okay. So we hold the housing vertical, I can see the stem in the bottom. We just lower it in there nice and even until we make sure, I can just feel it knocking as it goes on to the lug. It's on there beautiful. I'm just gonna hold him vertical, upside-down. The fingers in the top of this cap are now centralizing the cartridge, and I'm just gonna do it up by hand, okay. So that's what we'll do.
We'll always just do them up by hand, all the way as you can see. You should be able to just do it up as easy as I am now. That's how these things should come on and off. Just needs a little bit of lubrication in here. If they've been outside in the sun for a long time, they'll dry out, and they can lock up. But they shouldn't be like that. When you change your cartridges, chuck a little bit of grease of the thread there, and we'll be good to go. Food grade grease.
Once it's locked up, spanner on, one or two inches and that's it, it's tight. Don't sit there just ramping on the spanner. She's tight, quality product, seels in the top, O-rings are seeled, she's done.
And that's how to change the pleated sediment cartridge.
