The Whole-House Professional Carbon Filtration System
Back washing Activated Carbon Filters for great tasting water from every faucet in your home. Featuring the GE Whole-House Carbon Filtration System filter valve and GE controller.
Activated carbon with its extremely high surface areas can absorb many times its weight of tastes and odors.
Periodic back washing is necessary to eliminate the accumulated suspended mater and regrade the filter bed.
It is necessary to replace the carbon filter bed when the capacity for chlorine, taste and odor is exhausted
Unlike many whole house carbon systems that require a yearly filter change, our specially designed activated carbon will last for many years.
Gives you great tasting water from every faucet in your home including the shower and bath.
It is the perfect companion for a water softener system and it may be installed on municipal or well water.
Coconut Shell-High Activated Carbon (CS-HAC) may be used for a variety of water treatment applications requiring the reduction of chlorine, tastes and odors.
CS-HAC is an outstanding material for applications requiring taste, odor and dissolved organic chemical removal from water with suspended matter present. This product can be used for filtering waters having a wide range of pH levels.
Large surface area results in an exceptionally high capacity and efficiency.
Balanced pore structure gives a more efficient adsorption range.
CS-HAC is very durable so losses due to attrition are kept to a minimum.
CS-HAC has a very high carbon-low ash content.
Service rates of 5 gpm/sq. ft. are practical for ordinary taste, odor and chlorine loads.
CS-HAC will impart a high “polish” to the filtered water.
