WHOLE HOUSE 3 CU FT Blended Bone Char & Catalytic Carbon Clack WS1 Filter 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 Control Head -Complete System with 1" Yoke Pipe Connections
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 bone char carbon is recommended for are not certified by WQA or state standards. Contaminates addressed by bone char 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.
Catalytic Carbon Backwashing Filter is fully automatic the catalytic granular activated carbon (CGAC). The electronic computer control cleans the GAC of accumulated contaminants while delivering clean, clear, fresh, chlorine and chloramine-free water throughout your home. It also reduces chemicals, trihalomethanes (THM's), pesticides, heavy metals, tastes and odors. The electronic control center is easy to set, and incorporates an automatic backwash which removes accumulated contaminants by automatically backwashing the filtration media. Typically, on municipal water, the system only needs to backwash weekly.
Catalytic Granular Activated Carbon, which is a catalytic, high activity granular activated carbon manufactured by steam activation of select bituminous coal. The catalytic activity of this activated carbon makes it highly effective for the removal of chloramines from potable water. Its large micro-pore volume makes it particularly well suited for the removal of low molecular weight organic compounds and their chlorinated by-products such as chloroform and other trihalomethanes (THMs). An important feature of this material is its superior mechanical hardness and the extensive de-dusting during its manufacture ensures an exceptionally clean activated carbon product.
