Large Whole House Manganese, Iron and Hydrogen Sulfide removal Water Filter, also known as Whole House Greensand Water Filter. This filter contains media derived from naturally mined ore of manganese dioxide which has been used in water treatment for more than 75 years. Regenerating media that can remove iron from drinking water. Nothing is imparted into the drinking water and it has a high capacity for low contaminant concentrations, and can be used in conjunction with aeration, chlorination, ozone or other pre-treatment methods for difficult applications. Chlorine or other oxidants accelerate the catalytic reaction.
This product is an old technology that has now been replaced with Iron and Hydrogen Sulfide Removal System. New systems don't require regeneration.

Manganese Greensand Iron Filter Capacity

Greensand Iron Filter uses naturally mined media CQ-IGS to reduce iron. Dissolved iron gets oxidised by media, which causes precipitation of the minerals and any iron, manganese or hydrogen sulfide present in your water supply. Precipitated contaminant then is trapped by the media and gets backwashed, while the end result is clean filtered water.
With proper installation, greensand filters have a capacity to reduce the following contaminants:
  • 10 ppm (parts per million) of both ferric (oxidized) and ferrous (clear) Iron
  • 5 ppm of Hydrogen Sulfide (rotten egg odor)
  • 5 ppm of Manganese
  • For best performance, the Greensand System requires pH to be in the range of 7.5 - 8.5, and for best Manganese removal pH is 8-9.

    System 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' mineral tank that contains Manganese, Iron and Hydrogen Sulfide reducing Greensand-derived media.
  • 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.
  • Filter Components

    System comes with Poly Glass mineral tank field with Manganese, Iron and Hydrogen sulfide reducing media, 2 20"x2.5" filter housings for sediment pre-filter and carbon block post filter, Fleck microprocessor for backwash control, and installation hardware.
    Note: system is designed for water pH levels between 7.5 and 9. If pH is between 6.5 and 7.5, consider a higher capacity Iron, Hydrogen Sulfide and Manganese filtration system. If pH is lower than 6.2, you will need to neutralize it before iron removal system can be used. Here's a good whole house acid neutralizer system.

  • Maximum Flow rate: 11 GPM ( gallons per minute )
  • Line IN/OUT size: 3/4" or 1", Stainless Steel Bypass Valve
  • Riser style 1" internal flow distributor
  • Regeneration / backwash is required
  • Automatically backwashed
  • Certifications: filter media is certified to ANSI/NSF standard 61
  • Warranty: 5 year on computer components, 10 years on the tank
  • Filtration Capacity: 10,000 gallons
