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

Advantages

  • 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.

ADVANTAGES

  • 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.
