Whole House Sediment & Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) Filter Package. Our very popular whole house filter package features dual stage filtration for a wide range of common contaminants that affect the clarity, taste, and odor of residential water. This system features depth sediment filter which removes dirt, sediment, rust particles, and other particulates down to a level of 5 microns thereby protecting the carbon filter and preserving its capacity. This filter is followed by. GAC granular activated carbon filter which allows water to enter at one end and pass through the entire length of the carbon bed thereby maximizing contact time and contaminant removal before exiting the other end (upflow design). Accordingly, somewhat higher contaminant removal rates can generally be achieved as compared to most radial flow GAC or carbon block filters, although the filter life will be a bit shorter. A 20 micron built-in post-filter helps remove carbon fines and other suspended particulates. An internal expansion pad reduces channeling and bypass. This package is a very popular choice for general chlorine reduction. It is also commonly used to remove chlorine disinfection by-products (THM’s), and a wide range of organic and volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) that affect water clarity, taste, and odor. This system is a popular choice for well water owners requiring filtration down to a level of 5 microns for a whole house UV sterilizer, especially where elevated levels of organic contaminants are present (organic contaminants can absorb UV light). The whole house filter package. Is a very popular general purpose whole house water filter package. It is well suited to sediment and particulate removal as well as the reduction of chlorine, chlorine disinfection bi-products like trihalomethanes (THM’s), a wide range of volatile organic compounds, and other contaminants responsible for bad tastes and odors. It is an excellent choice for well water, lake water, stream water, and municipal (city) water treatment applications. For best results, we recommend a maximum flow rate of about 4 gallons per minute, which is sufficient for an average residential application. Why choose the Whole House Sediment & GAC Filter Package? Arge carbon bed and upflow design maximizes contact time between contaminants and media to enhance contaminant removal rates. Less risk of channeling and bypass as compared to competitor’s granular activated carbon (GAC) filters. We use only the highest quality brand-name heavy duty filter housings with large diameter inlet and outlet for less pressure drop and better flow dynamics. We use standard filter sizes so you will always be able to obtain replacement filters for your system. Many competitors use small 2.5″ x 20″ filters in their whole house filter systems, resulting in poor water pressure, short filter life, and less than optimal flow characteristics. We use filters with much greater surface area and dirt-holding capacity to maximize contaminant removal, improve water pressure and flow characteristics, and extend filter life so you have less maintenance to do! Includes sturdy powder-coated steel mounting bracket and spanner wrench! Great pricing on system packages. Recommended Flow Rate (Gallons per Minute). 6 GPM (23 LPM). Two Heavy Duty Big Blue Housing (10). 40-100°F (4.4 to 37°C). Maximum Recommended Water Pressure. 90 PSI (6.2 bar). What is included in the package? Two (2) heavy-duty Big Blue 20″ filter housing (1″ NPT) w/ pressure relief button. Two (2) heavy-duty mounting bracket. Spun Sediment Big Blue filter cartridge 20″ x 4.5″, 5 micron. GAC Big Blue filter cartridge 20″ x 4.5″. Local Pick-Up is available by appointment only, please inquire for more information. GST/HST will be applied to Canadian buyers and is required by law.
