Frequently Asked Questions
Are your Filters Cleanable and Washable?
Yes, our filters are both washable and cleanable. They can easily be cleaned in minutes or if the filter had become muddied or stained the filter can easily be washed. We supply full instructions with every filter on the best methods of cleaning.
CLEANING and MAINTENANCE
Normal Maintenance – Clean Filter as required using low pressure compressed air (60–70 PSI) directed from
the inside (clean) surface toward the outside (dirty) surface.
If the Filter becomes discoloured PSICO Performance’s filters are manufactured with synthetic media and
are washable using warm water and dish washing detergent/detergent – *see below for ratio.
Soak the filter in Dishwashing Detergent mix for 3-4 minutes. Gently agitate the filter occasionally during
soaking (too much soaking in Dishwashing Detergent can harm aluminium). Rinse in clear running water until
all detergent has been removed. Shake any remaining water from the filter, DO NOT use compressed air to
dry filter. Set filter aside with the open end facing down in a warm, dry place for 24-48 hours, until it is
completely dry. Once dry, reinstall the filter.
*Dilute 2 Tablespoons of Dishwashing Detergent to 4 cups of water OR use a 1:30 mix ratio.
NEVER oil a PSICO Performance filter as this will only degrade the filters performance.
How do I Choose which Filter will best suit my needs?
When choosing your filter, we recommend using our Offroad filter if you plan on taking your vehicle into dusty situations.
These may include things like farm work, driving in convoy off-road, driving in dry dusty conditions etc.
The offroad filter will give your engine the best possible protection against dust ingress while still providing great flow properties.
If you do predominantly on-road driving with the occasional offroad adventure then our hi flow may be able to offer some additional flow.
The hi flow filter provides great filtration for larger particles 5 microns and above while still allowing the maximum flow. Suited to on road and off-road conditions where dust is minimal. Beach, mud etc.
Do your Filters need Oiling?
No, Definitely under no circumstances should a PSICO Performance filter be oiled. PSICO Performance filters feature a patented, purpose made filtration media that requires no oiling. Oiling will only reduce our filters performance.
