Backwashing Carbon Filter
This is the common size single household filter which we custom build using only the best American made components. This filter uses a 12″x 54″ vessel with an electronic timer head. Inside there is a mixed bed gravel under bed with 50 litres of Granular Activated Carbon for the removal of tannins, organics, taste and odor. These are your only real option in situations where water quality clogs cartridge type carbon filters at an uneconomical rate. The back wash intervals on this unit are case set to suit each unique location with media life varying from around 3 years plus with chlorinated water where the range of chlorine levels will determine the carbon depletion rate, out to 10-12 years on some untreated waters.
Generally no pre-filtration is required unless with bore water needing Ultra Violet sterilization where 5 micron particle removal is required for the UV. Larger versions of this filter are available on request to suit any application.

Water softeners are the only guaranteed, effective way of removing calcium and magnesium from water. For general household use, we prefer to sell a light commercial twin tank unit as pictured here. The larger capacity of these units, in comparison with the single tank unit, is far more economical on salt consumption, due to less frequent backwash cycles.
HOW A SOFTENER WORKS
Calcium and magnesium are removed from the water as it passes through the resins inside the tall tank. (Resin life is generally 7-10 years.) The volume limit of calcium and magnesium that the resin is able to effectively remove is determined by your specific hardness level. (We’ll test your water.) We pre-program your hardness level into the filter head. This unit comes with a microprocessor head, which counts litres used, and will automatically backwash itself at 2 am on the following morning after the day on which the resin’s limit has been reached. The backwash is achieved by the system drawing a salt brine solution from the squat storage tank and pumping it through the resins, shocking the resins into releasing the calcium and magnesium, and disposing of this out through a waste pipe. The filter head then goes into a rinse cycle, removing the salt bring from the resin tank and then automatically switches itself back into normal working mode. The only regular consumable item in this process is softener salt, which must be periodically added to the tank storage tank.
