Sediment Whole House Filter

Whole house sediment water purification system is designed for the removal of turbidity in the water caused by sand, silt, ferric iron and oxidized manganese or sulfur. Home Sediment Water Filter’s fractured edges and irregular surface provides a high surface area and complex flow path for efficient removal of suspended matter through out the filter bed, typically reducing suspended solids down to the 20-40 micron range. Also available with 5 micron turbidity removal media.
Larger particle size creates less pressure loss through the filter and allows deeper sediment penetration into the bed for higher sediment loading and longer filter runs. This large and irregular shape prevents the screening and caking of sediment in the top several inches of the filter bed as happens in the typical sand filter, thus preventing a rapid build up of head loss and blinding problems.
Residential and Light Commercial Sediment Water Filter System’s light weight means lower backwash rates and better bed expansion to release trapped sediment and rinse the filter media during the backwash cycle. This ideal combination of particle shape, size and density make it a good choice where quality water filtration and water conservation are important.

Sediment / Turbidity Water Filter specifications

Water travels through 3 stages of filtration:
First stage, water travels through a 20″ sediment cartridge that removes sediment, silt, sand and dirt. Also this extends the life of water softeners, water filters, and prevents damage to control valves or pumps.
Second stage water travels through a 1.5 or 2.0 cubic foot Sediment media tank with an Automatic Microprocessor Control valve (The longer time that the water is in contact with the media, the more effective is the conditioning and filtering of the water.)
Third stage, water travels through a 20″ solid carbon cartridge for a final conditioning of the water and removing any remaining contaminates and VOC’s which may be in the water.
Can be a upgraded to a Dual Tank, Sediment/Turbidity + Water Softener, to remove hardness. Chose 1.5 cu.ft. for smaller homes or less turbidity, and 2.0 cu.ft. for lager homes or higher Turbidity and/or Hardness.

Whole House Sediment Water Purification System Key Features and Benefits

  • There is less pressure loss through a bed of CQ- S 100 than through most other filter medias
  • Light weight requires lower backwash rates than those required for other filter medias
  • High service rates result in lower equipment costs and a savings in space
  • High sediment reduction capacity results in longer filter runs, with a substantial savings in backwash water and time out of service
  • Replacement of sand with CQ- S 100 in existing installations may increases filter capacity 100% or more. (Caution should be taken upon start-up that the lightweight CQ- S 100 is not washed to drain.)
