Operation of the Filtration System
Hard water can contain dissolved minerals in the form of Calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg), and metals such as Iron (Fe), Copper (Cu), Lead (Pb ), Nickel (Ni), Zinc (Zn), Lithium (Li) and other inorganics. Chemical Pesticides, Herbicides, Chlorine, & Chloramine with their disinfectant byproducts can also be found in safe city water. Reduction of these contaminants is accomplished by conditioning & filtering the water through a sophisticated ion-exchange process as well as catalysis, absorption, adsorption, and physical filtration.
Filtration Media – AquaPro 500-3a, ChlorZorb, & Catalytic Activator
The exchange media is a high quality, FDA certified, commercial-grade strong acid cation Functional Matrix filtration media with a very high whole bead count and no color throw. It is physically hard and is extremely resistant to chlorine oxidation, fouling, and attrition. 500-4 filtration media is designed to work together with ProGuard & ProGuard Plus performance enhancers to synergistically function at peak efficiency levels and provide you with the water quality, taste, & feel that you desire. The media combines high operating capacity with excellent chemical and physical stability to ensure a long, dependable life. ChlorZorb & the catalytic activator work together in synergy to effectively address chlorine, chloramine, pesticides, herbicides, tastes, odors, and disinfection byproducts. These media are further activated by ProGuard & ProGuard Plus, which maintains a bacteriostatic environment.
Regeneration of the system is initiated by a sophisticated electronic control timer, which precisely meters filtered water flow and makes decisions to regenerate based on measured water consumption, elapsed time, and other program settings.
