Whole House Carbon Filter with Sediment Filter - Manual Control Valve. Carbon Filter size 9"x48". Sediment filter 4.5"x10".
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 does not cause a water pressure drop in your home compared to solid block carbon filter installed at the point of entry. The Sediment Filter installed before the Carbon filter, prolongs the life of the filter by removing sediment that can clog the carbon media, and clarifies the water entering your home. 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.
The two most important factors affecting the efficiency of activated carbon filtration are the amount of carbon in the unit and the amount of time the contaminant spends in contact with it. The more carbon the better. Similarly, the lower the flow rate of the water, the more time contaminants will be in contact with the carbon, and the more absorption that will take place. This is a 9 x 48 filter, it will hold 1 cu ft of carbon.
Granular Activated Carbon does not remove sediment / particulate material very well, so they are often. Preceded by a sediment filter. This eliminates gross contaminants that would otherwise clog the activated carbon, thereby reducing the surface area available for absorption.. This unit comes with a 4.5x 10 Big Blue Sediment Filter.
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. Benefits and Importance of a Backwash Cycle.
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, 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 schedule maintains the efficiency of the filter, as well as providing cleaner water. This is the Manual valve. It has very few moving parts, and easy to use. When you need to backwash a filter, you put it into the backwash cycle for 10 minutes, followed by a rinse for 3 minutes, and then back into the service mode. That is all there is to it! For a more economical product, and ease of use,, we recommend you get this, rather than opting for a unit that does not backwash, Read the section on the benefits of back washing above. However, we are not responsible for transit time and delays. Under no circumstances are opened or used products accepted for return.
