How It Works & What's Included:

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.

Controller/Meter
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.

Regeneration & Control Valve
A fully programmable microprocessor controls Tank Fill, Percolation, Backwash, Ion displacement, Backwash, Vortex Rinse, and Return-To-Service cycles. This ensures that water quality meets specifications. A hydraulically balanced, self-cleaning piston utilizes a composite drivetrain and high-resolution optical encoder. All parts in the waterway are either -coated brass or composite Noryl® materials to ensure long and reliable service life.

Media Tank
All models feature a non-corrosive fiberglass media tank with a one-piece thermoplastic inner liner. The tanks are approved by NSF, UL, and the FDA. They also meet WQA Standard S-100, and all fiberglass tanks carry a limited lifetime warranty.

Brine Tank & Brine System
The high capacity brine tank is a combination brine maker and salt storage vessel and is made of tough, high-density polyethylene. Larger tanks are available for extra salt storage capacity, if required. Brine refill is automatically controlled by the computer to provide the exact amount of brine required for each regeneration cycle. The Brine System has a float and safety valve shut-off, which minimizes the chance of overflowing the brine tank. All units are equipped with an air check.

ProGuard
A high efficiency ProGuard reservoir is included with this system to ensure peak performance, maximize efficiency, and provide the highest level of protection from inorganic metals and minerals.
