Carbon filtration is a great addition to any home, providing cleaner, better tasting water in just about any situation. Backwashing tank systems provide all the benefits of carbon filtration, without the constant maintenance and cost associated with cartridge filters.
Homes on city water will enjoy chlorine and chloramine removal, eliminating a harmful chemical and preventing respitory problems that may be associated with chlorinated water. Homes on well water will benefit from the removal herbicides and pesticides that can find their way into water supplies. In both cases, carbon filtration improves the appeal of water, removing tastes and odors that can discourage healthy drinking water habits.
Controlled by the Fleck 5600SXT digital control head, this system automatically backwashes. The backwash process simply forces water rapidly through the system in reverse direction, lifting the media and flushing accumulated particulates down the drain. Made by Fleck, the #1 manufacturer of control heads in the US, the digital control head offers an easy to use LCD display and touchpad controls as well as shorter, more efficient backwashes.
