Reduces iron and manganese from the water source
Application: This system should be employed where low to moderate ferrous (dissolved) iron or hydrogen sulfide contamination is known or expected (hydrogen sulfide produces a distinct rotten egg / sulfur odor). This filter is most effective where iron and hydrogen sulfide levels are less than 5 ppm. Best contaminant removal rates are achieved where the pH is between 6.5 and 8.5 and where the water contains some dissolved oxygen. This filter will also remove ferric iron through mechanical filtration, although a sediment filter may be a more cost effective choice.
The life of the filter cartridge depends on the contamination level (iron, manganese and hydrogen sulfide levels) and amount of water consumed on a daily basis. The expected filter life for a typical residential application is about 20,000 gallons (75,500 L). For best results and longest filter-life, a sediment pre-filter is recommended.
