ATS manufacturers (in the USA!) water treatment from standalone UV sterilizers that compete with the Chinese imports, up to Log 4 water treatment and completely custom treatment skids.

We have tried bag filters and all the other self-cleaning sediment filters out there, and LOVE the Orival OR-G. Why?
It's self-cleaning. While changing bag filters isn't as nasty for rainwater harvesting skids as it would be for gray water, it's a maintenance item and someone has to monitor it and do it every few months.
It's available in sizes as small as 1½". Most of our treatment is 8-20 gpm, so anything larger is not only wasting money, but harder to backwash.
Backwashing flow rate is lower than other manufacturers, while still effective.
This from the manufacturer:
Automatic, self-cleaning, line pressure powered water filter. Units can be installed in parallel to handle larger flow rates. Fine screens available down to 10 microns in a variety of constructions, including standard stainless steel mesh, multi-layer sintered stainless steel and wedgewire. High efficiency rinse cycle consumes a fraction of the water of standard filters.
