Iron staining and hard water can be double trouble for your water-using appliances, often resulting in red or orange staining and scale buildup.

Plus, an advanced non-electric dosing system delivers targeted performance to oxidize and wash away iron and manganese. The addition of a Water Softener Alternative prevents hard water scale without the need for salt bag refills or electricity.

How it works
The 5 micron prefilter system helps protect your appliances and filtration system from the damaging effects of dirt, debris, and other small particles.
In the patented mixing chamber, chlorine concentrate collides with your water to reduce nuisance organisms.
Greensand Plus Iron Reduction
This stage oxidizes and traps iron and manganese in a filter media and gravel underbed before flushing them out via backwashing.
Backwashing cycles are controlled by the electronic meter on the top of the tank. This can be set to backwash every specified number of days or as the electronic head recognizes that a certain amount of water has been used.
Our carbon filtration system improves your water’s taste and odor while reducing chlorine, chloramines, particulate matter, and other treatment chemicals.
Water Softener Alternative
Our DVGW-9191 certified salt-free conditioning system prevents hard water scale buildup and plumbing clogs without electricity.

Depending on your water quality and the corresponding levels of iron, your new treatment system can last between 10 and 15 years if you keep up with routine maintenance.
What kind of maintenance should I expect?
You should add chlorine to the system every 2-3 months based on usage. Replace the sediment pre-filter every six months and replace the carbon and iron filtration media after five years.
