Whole House Iron, Hydrogen Sulfide and Manganese Water Filter, available in 1.5 cubic foot ( CQE-WH-01197 ) and 2 cubic foot ( CQE-WH-01198 ) Stainless Steel tanks. Filtration System uses media formulated from glauconite green sand; effectively removes iron, manganese and hydrogen sulfide (sulfur smell) rotten egg odor usually found in water. The system is installed in the main water line. When the raw water enters the iron filter, it passes down through the filter media and get oxygenated. The oxygen causes precipitation of the minerals and any iron, manganese or hydrogen sulfide present in your water supply is trapped, resulting in a clean filtered water flow to your household.
The filter media can be periodically backwashed for better performance. Comes with automatic backwash controller that can be plugged into regular outlet. System will produce filtered water even without power using just water pressure. No other maintenance on the main tank is required! 
With proper installation, it removes the following contaminants, resulting in healthier water:
  • 15 ppm of both ferric (oxidized) and ferrous (clear) iron
  • 05 ppm of Hydrogen sulfide (rotten egg odor)
  • 10 ppm of manganese
Note: These systems are designed for water supplies with pH between 6.6 and 8.8. If your water supply have a pH of 6.5 or less, you need to neutralize the pH before it passes through the system with an Acid Neutralizer System. If iron is above 6 ppm, we highly recommend Air Infusion version, which uses additional component to send air into the tank and will produce cleaner results with higher iron levels.

Iron, Sulfur and Manganese Water Filter Specifications

Water goes through 3 stages of filtration.
  • In Stage 1, water flows through a 20"x2.5" sediment pre-filter that removes sediment, dirt and silt. This water filter also extends life of the main unit
  • In Stage 2, water flows through a large 5' Stainless Steel mineral tank that contains Iron and Hydrogen Sulfide reducing media CQ-PY , which can also reduce Manganese.
  • In Stage 3, water flows through a 20"x2.5" solid carbon block filter cartridge. Carbon (also called Charcoal ) has been used in water filtration for centuries. It effectively removes or reduces many contaminants including Volatile Organic Compounds ( VOCs ), insecticides, pesticides and industrial solvents.

    Iron and Hydrogen Sulfide Water Filter Components

    System comes with a Stainless Steel mineral tank filled with Iron and Hydrogen sulfide reducing media, two stainless 20"x2.5" filter housings for sediment pre-filter and carbon block post filter, Fleck microprocessor for backwash control, and installation hardware. It comes with media already in the tank. Simple installation with in and out lines and a drain, and needs a power outlet for backwashing (can operate with no backwashing without power from water pressure).

    CQ-PY is a mixed bed media, with the majority consisting of a naturally mined ore, a mineral form of manganese dioxide which has been used in water treatment for more than 75 years. CQ-PY is a granular filtration media for hydrogen sulfide, iron and manganese reduction. The media functions as a catalyst, but itself remains relatively unchanged. CQ-PY works on a principle whereby the hydrogen sulfide, iron and manganese are oxidized and trapped on the media while simple backwashing cleans the bed. No chemical regeneration is required, nothing is imparted into the drinking water and CQ-PY has a high capacity for low contaminant concentrations. CQ-PY can be used in conjunction with aeration, chlorination, ozone or other pretreatment methods for difficult applications. Chlorine or other oxidants accelerate the catalytic reaction.

  • Maximum Flow rate: 11 GPM ( gallons per minute ) for 1.5 cu.ft, 13 GPM for 2 cu.ft.
  • Line IN/OUT size: 3/4" or 1", Stainless Steel Bypass Valve
  • Riser style 1" internal flow distributor
  • No regeneration is required
  • Automatically backwashed
  • Filter Life: 1.5 cu.ft - 5-7 years, 2 cu.ft - 7-8 years
