Description

WHOLE HOUSE 1.5 CU FT BONE CHAR CARBON.  AQT 56 AUTOMATIC BACKWASH VALVE.

Unlike standard coconut or charcoal based carbon filters which cannot filter fluoride, our Whole House Filter uses a unique calcium based Bone Char  carbon designed to reduce the fluoride from your water. 

Removes/Reduces Fluoride, Hydrogen Sulfide (Sulfur), and chemicals and odors! High flow size

*The information provided on this table is based on Additional testing results of removal efficiency for heavy metals with the use of Bone Char courtesy of Glasgow University, UK and manufacturers of Bone Char. Additional contaminants that bonechar carbon is recommended for are not certified by WQA or state standards. Contaminates addressed by bonechar may not be in your water.

The use of bone charcoal or bone char is reported to be an effective means for the reduction of fluoride. Bone charcoal contains a carbon structure while supporting a porous hydroxyapatite matrix (a calcium phosphate hydroxide in crystalline form which is rich in surface ions which can be readily replaced by fluoride ion). Adsorption and ion exchange are thought to be the mechanism for fluoride reduction by bone char. This filter works like regular carbon as well. A whole-house filter system treats all water traveling to any faucet or fixture in the home. It removes the chemical before it can be ingested, breathed in, or absorbed by the skin during washing or bathing. A larger carbon filter like this one provides better filtration because of the amount of carbon,and depth of the filter bed. It does not cause a water pressure drop in your home compared to solid block carbon filter installed at the point of entry. Carbon removes/reduces many volatile organic chemicals (VOC), pesticides and herbicides, as well as chlorine, benzene, trihalomethane (THM) compounds, radon, solvents and hundreds of other man-made chemicals found in tap water.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. This filter contains 1.5 CU FT Bone Carbon. 

This system is easy to set up. With this system you will receive:

1 - 10"x52" FRP vessel.

1.5 CU FT Bone Char Carbon

Benefits and Importance of a Backwash Cycle.

As the filter operates in service mode, it collects particles in the filter bed. Also, since water's nature is to follow the path of least resistance, after a time it begins to cut channels through the medium. As channels or holes in the media bed form, water begins to flow around rather than through the medium. This process is called "channeling" and it reduces the effectiveness of the filter considerably.

The backwash is accomplished by sending the water down the riser tube from which it enters the filter tank at the bottom. The force of the water is such that it actually lifts the media bed, swirling and tossing the granular medium. The water leaves the filter tank through the control valve, which routes it through the filter's drain line. Particles that were in the bed are washed to drain. The backwash is an intense rinsing and tossing of the medium that lasts for several minutes. In a standard residential filter, a typical backwash lasts about ten minutes.

After the backwash, the controls initiate a "rinse" of the bed during which water flows downward through the medium, up through the distribution tube and out the drain. The purpose of this rinse is to rinse and settle the bed and prepare it for return to service flow. A regular backwash cycle prolongs the efficiency of the filter as well as provides cleaner water for your home.

Whole House Water Filter POE with KDF 85 Media Guard - 1.5 CU FT Coconut Shell Based GAC

 Point-of-Entry water treatment system is installed on your side of the meter with the express purpose of treating all of the incoming water before it goes into the individual supply lines that feed your laundry, bathrooms (including toilets), dedicated outside faucets and others as well as your kitchen. POE systems often include softeners, large bed carbon filters, and some systems which are specifically designed to remove (or trap) sediment, foul tastes and odors. POE systems are sometimes considered pre-filters.


Whole House Water Filter With consistently superior KDF85 medium is a economical pretreatment unit which is able to turn your water filter in to a high performance water filtration system by by reducing chlorine, heavy metals and inhibits bacteria growth from water without adding chemicals. KDF 55 & KDF 85 process media can remove up to 99% of water soluble lead, mercury, nickel, chromium, chlorine and Hydrogen Sulfide and other dissolved metals. All KDF process media forms are effective in controlling the build up of bacteria, algae, fungi and scale, make the ideal for use in GAC beds, ion exchange resins, carbon block filters and inline carbon filters. 

Wherever KDF  Media are used, they can eliminate the need for costly and sometimes harmful chemical treatments. KDF Fluid Treatment - kdfft.com is a technological leader in  the fluid treatment industry. KDF process media are high purity copper-zinc formulations used in pre treatment, primary treatment and waste water applications. KDF media supplement or replace existing technologies to extend system life, reduce heavy metals, microorganisms, scale, lower total cost and decrease maintenance.

KDF process media are recyclable and contain no chemical additives. Homes, hospitals, restaurants,municipal water treatment facilities rely on KDF process media to safely reduce or remove chlorine, iron, hydrogen sulfide, heavy metals and bacteria from water.

Media-Guard KDF85 is for well water and removes/reduces soluble iron, hydrogen sulfate, chlorine, heavy metals from water and bacteria static. Good tasting water throughout the whole house. No maintenance needed on media-guard system

Note:

**Hydrogen sulfide concentrations exceeding 7 to 10 ppm can be removed by injecting an oxidizing chemical such as household bleach followed up by filtration. The oxidizing chemical should enter the water upstream from the storage or mixing tank to provide at least 30-45 minutes of contact time between the chemical and water. The length of length of the holding time is a function of the chemical dosage, tank configuration and water temperature. Sulfur particles can then be removed using a sediment filter and the excess chlorine can be removed by activated carbon filtration. 

If test results indicate that bacterial contamination is occurring, shock chlorination or disinfection is the most widely suggested method for initial treatment. Shock chlorination (disinfection) is the one-time introduction of a strong solution into the entire water distribution system (well, pump, distribution pipeline, etc.)

When to Shock Disinfect the Well:

Shock chlorination (disinfection) is recommended when lab results indicate a presence of bacteria upon completion of a new well or after pump replacement or repair, when the distribution system is opened for repairs or maintenance, following contamination by flood water, to control iron and sulfur bacteria.

Shock chlorination (disinfection) is recommended in these circumstances to ensure that bacterial contamination is controlled.
