1st Stage - . All of our sediment filters use multi-gradient spun polypropylene filter cartridges. These cartridges use the entire depth of their media by trapping the largest sediment particles on the outside of the filter, then gradually stepping down the size of particles they will reject as the water moves closer to the core of the filter. The result is longer filter life, greater dirt-holding capacity, higher flow rates, and remarkably low pressure drop. The 100% pure polypropylene media is highly resistant to bacteria and chemicals, making this an excellent choice for both well water and municipal water treatment applications.
2nd Stage - Carbon is a substance that has a long history of being used to absorb impurities and is perhaps the most powerful absorbent known to man. One pound of carbon contains a surface area of roughly 125 acres and can absorb literally thousands of different chemicals. Activated carbon which has a slight electro-positive charge added to it, making it even more attractive to chemicals and impurities. As the water passes over the positively charged carbon surface, the negative ions of the of the contaminants are drawn to the surface of the carbon granules. Activated carbon filters used for home water treatment typically contain either granular activated carbon or powdered block carbon. Although both are effective, carbon block filters generally have a higher contaminant removal ratio. Carbon also removes - Volatile organic chemicals, or VOCs, are often toxic chemical compounds used industrially that may be present in water sources. A variety of fuels, solvents, coatings and refrigerants are volatile organic chemicals. Activated charcoal effectively traps and absorbs many different VOCs. Chlorine - No other filter removes chlorine and its accompanying odor and flavor as well as an activated charcoal filter. Most municipal water sources are treated at one or more stages with chlorine to kill bacteria. Pesticides - The Environmental Protection Agency lists activated charcoal filters as the only way to reduce pesticide quantities in drinking water. Many different pesticides used today are leached into our water sources and cause contamination.
3rd Stage - Carbon Block for final filtration.
Q: Why don't filtration systems reduce TDS?
A: “Filtration” systems are designed to selectively remove contaminants and to leave in dissolved trace minerals such as calcium and magnesium. These water-borne minerals are healthful and give water a more natural flavor. Systems that remove minerals lower the pH of water and cause it to be more aggressive. Low pH water will seek to balance itself by leaching elements such as copper, lead or aluminum from plumbing fixtures and cooking utensils. Cooking in de-mineralized water will also draw the minerals from your foods causing a reduced nutritional value. Water with a balanced mineral content has a much less tendency to take on foreign elements. TDS (total dissolved solids) is primarily made up of dissolved minerals and is not related to harmful contaminants. A TDS tester is for testing the efficacy of a reverse osmosis system. not a filtration system.
Q: Why would the filtered water from the unit appear cloudy sometimes?
A: Occasionally, filtered water may appear milky or cloudy. The siphon action in closing the faucet can create air pockets in the filter. These air pockets will produce tiny air bubbles in the filtered water that can cause the appearance of cloudiness. This is especially noticeable also when you first install new filters. The highly fractured structure of carbon and other media contains a lot of trapped air. This should fade in a few days.
Instructions for the installation of your system will be sent in a PDF to you email on record. Please ensure that the email address is correct. Contact us if you have not received it. The feed water valve can be either the saddle valve or the feed water adapter depending on the model. Please contact us if you have any questions.
