Activated Carbon Filter Specifications

Unpleasant tastes and odours caused by chlorine or organic substances, such as decayed vegetation and run-off are adsorbed by quality activated carbon. Occasional backwashing is necessary to free the filter bed or impurities and ready it for operation again.

*ACF filters can be turned into ACN filters by adding calcite to raise the pH of acidic and corrosive water supplies. The calcite redissolves a small amount of “good” mineral back into your water to prevent copper and metal-based pipes and fixtures from corroding away (see anode from hot water tank below). Add $50.


NextSand (Multimedia) Filter Specifications

Suspended particulate matter, such as clay and slit, which gives water a cloudy appearance, is trapped in the filter bed to produce clean, clear water. A radically high performance silt, sediment, and turbidity filtration media called NextSand filters out physical impurities which can cause damage to your plumbing fixtures or cloud your water.

Neutralizing Filter Specifications

Waterite neutralizing filters contains special media which raises the pH of acidic water and neutralizes its acidic characteristics. In addition to protecting pipes, plumbing fixtures and appliances, this filter also facilities the removal of iron and manganese by raising the pH to enable an iron filter to be used. After one or two years, additional media may be required.
