The semi-automatic backwash is easy to use and extends the life of the loose activated carbon media by allowing it to be back-washed and cleaned. All sediment and sludge will be flushed to waste, either into the garden,storm water drain attach a hose to where you would like it to go. Simply by turning a knob, allowing the mechanical clockwork operation to back-wash, stopping automatically at the end of the short cycle. Using this method the carbon media will last the average household two years, depending on water quality and usage.
Our whole house systems are supplied with all the necessary parts and fittings.
Whole of House Filtration Media - Activated Carbon
Specially treated high activity Granular Activated Carbon with Bimodal Pore Distribution and highly textured surface structure, with no mineral leachates, floaters or pH effect. Application: For the treatment of aqueous solutions containing high concentrations of organic micropollutants through both adsorption and bioassimilation.
Advantages: •High adsorption capacity with a high rate of removal •High Biological Density for shortest EBCT required •Pre-washed to remove floaters & water soluble ash thereby accelerating the commissioning process •pH Stabilised
