Carbon Filters | Fleck 5600 Coconut based Carbon filter auto backwash 1.0 cubic foot Basics:
A backwashing carbon filter is a water filter that cleans itself periodically by rinsing away impurities it has filtered from water. Water enters the top of the tank through a control valve and passes downward through the carbon, removes impurities and holds them. The system backwashes at a set time by you, generally every four days to lift the carbon media bed to keep it loose and effective. Carbon generally needs to be replaced every 3 to 5 years depending on the application it is being used for; you can generally smell or taste the chlorine odor if it comes back and know that it’s time to replace the carbon media. The Backwashing Carbon Filter is a large tank filled with activated carbon media. Coconut Based carbon removes chlorine in a chemical reaction that oxidizes the carbon surface. Chlorine tastes and odors are removed. Sediment down to 30 microns in size is also removed by mechanical filtration. This Carbon filter is generally recommended for city water applications OR when a private well is being chlorinated.
