It is the most advanced and effective Arsenic Water Filter on the market for the following reasons:
Water travels through 3 stages of filtration:
- First, water travels through a 20" sediment cartridge that removes sediment, silt, sand and dirt. Also this extends the life of water softeners and water filters, and prevents damage to control valves or pumps.
- Next, water travels through a 1.5 or 2.0 cubic foot Arsenic media tank with an Automatic Microprocessor Control valve (The longer amount of time that the water is in contact with the media, the more effective is the conditioning and filtering of the water.)
- Finally, water travels through a 20" solid carbon cartridge for a final conditioning of the water and removing any remaining contaminates and VOC's which may be in the water.

The arsenic removal system has been tested to take aresenic from 50 ppb to below 10 ppb, and sometimes to undetectable (depending on water flow, slower is better). If your arsenic level is higher than 100 ppb, consider installing two tanks in parallel, or a Commercial Arsenic Removal Water Filter System

Q. Why does this filter need a backwash, when other arsenic filters claim they do not?
A. It is normal for the filtration media to get compacted and to develop "channels" during operation. Once media compacts, and water develops channels where it flows without significant contact with the media, performance of the unit deteriorates, sometimes significantly. Backwash is a good way to refresh the media to prevent compacting and channeling. It keeps media at the top performance, and increases the life of the unit.
Q. I found a system that is cheaper and also removes fluoride!
A. There are products out there that use fluoride removal media, which is less expensive, for arsenic removal. In fact, the main purpose of such systems is fluoride removal, and some arsenic reduction is incidental. If arsenic in your water is close to EPA standard and you are comfortable with partial arsenic reduction, you can try our Whole House Fluoride Removal Filter
, which is slightly less expensive and also reduces arsenic.
