EWTS Automatic Backwashing Carbon / Garnet Filtration Systems: FAQs
Chlorine Tastes, Odors?
Hair or Skin Dried Out or Irritated By Chlorine?
Sensitive Aquariums, Orchids, House Plants?
If you are in an area of high chlorine levels or periodically experience excess chlorine odor or taste, we may have what you are looking for! Most cartridge-type carbon filters are just too small to properly remove chlorine throughout the home and can cause pressure loss and low flow rates. The Automatic Carbon Tower Series is specially designed for use on city water which can be high in chlorine. Instead of frequent cartridge changes, these systems backwash and clean themselves automatically. Unlike cheaper systems, these filters have enough activated carbon media to provide the filter bed the contact time needed for the size home you have. With over six models to choose from, we have systems for homes from 1 to 6 bathrooms. Custom systems for larger applications and commercial applications are also available.
Why Use a Carbon Tower?
If your water contains over 0.2 PPM of free chlorine then you can look forward to:
from industrial-grade 316 stainless
steel filter tanks (shown above)
or heavy-duty Poly-Wound tank construction.
How Do I Know What Size I Need?
Pick a system with a pipe size that is not less than the pipe size of your water service (at the shut-off to your house). For chlorine taste or odor reduction, you can choose by PEAK flow rate, in "GALLONS PER MINUTE" (listed as GPM in the price list), this is the maximum flow that can pass through the system, at a 25 psi pressure drop.
Actual service flow rates, for optimum
removal of chlorine and organic compounds,
if present, is 20% of peak flow rates
Hundreds of other sizes for residential and commercial applications available!
