To correct my earlier post the 2" unit has 37,000 hours. This unit is installed in single pass fashion and is the only "filtration"(for lack of a better word) in a poultry processing plant laboratory I maintain.
I selected and installed it several years ago after county health department water samples came back positive for bacteria. No failures since with sampling every 90 days.
2 weeks ago I took this unit out of service as we just brought in city water for this lab and no longer use the well.
Here are some pictures of the control unit and the business end with the cover off.
