The CuZn 500,000 gallon whole house water filter systems include
a user-programmable automatic head. Auto-backwashing filters
refresh (backwash) themselves periodically to insure an optimum
level of performance and to prevent "channeling". Whole house
auto-backwashing filters greatly enhance the performance of
softener systems. These filters treat up to 500,000 gallons of
water and uses ¾ " fittings.
The KDF 55 tank removes dissolved inorganic contaminants or
heavy metals such as minerals/salts (hardness or scale-causing
contaminants), lead, arsenic, copper and nickel. The Carbon tank
removes chlorine, ammonia, herbicides, pesticides, disinfection
by-products (DBP), volatile organic chemicals (VOC),
trichloroethylene (TCE), benzene, Tetrachloroethylene (PCE),
methyl-t-butyl ether (MTBE) and other trace organics and
man-made chemicals in the water.
