If you are using throw away filters to deal with your sediment problem, the cost will add up over time, not to mention the hassle of constantly changing filters. With a back wash capable sediment filter with Filter-Ag, you have a much more efficient system in terms of cost and results. This is necessary if you have well water that has sediment, or precipitated iron. Filter Ag is a very efficient filter medium for the removal of suspended material and turbidity. Less pressure loss and finer filtration is possible because of its light weight and irregular surface characteristics. Filter Ag granules have irregular surface characteristics affording maximum removal of suspended matter throughout the filter bed. Filter-Ag can be applied to systems designed for either pressure or gravity flow. Filter-Ag has many outstanding advantages over the more common granular filter media used for suspended solids removal. A substantial savings can be realized with Filter Ag because equipment can be smaller, requiring less square footage. Filter-Ag is a lightweight substance which means additional savings in backwash rates. Filter-Ag typically removes the normal suspended solids, down to 20-40 micron range. Benefits and Importance of a Backwash Cycle. As the filter operates in service mode, it collects particles in the filter bed. Also, since water’s nature is to follow the path of least resistance, after a time it begins to cut channels through the medium. As channels or holes in the media bed form, water begins to flow around rather than through the medium. This process is called “channeling” and it reduces the effectiveness of the filter considerably. The backwash is accomplished by sending the water down the riser tube from which it enters the filter tank at the bottom. The force of the water is such that it actually lifts the media bed, swirling and tossing the granular medium. The water leaves the filter tank through the control valve, which routes it through the filter’s drain line. Particles that were in the bed are washed to drain. The backwash is an intense rinsing and tossing of the medium that lasts for several minutes. In a standard residential filter, a typical backwash lasts about ten minutes. After the backwash, the controls initiate a “rinse” of the bed during which water flows downward through the medium, up through the distribution tube and out the drain. The purpose of this rinse is to rinse and settle the bed and prepare it for return to service flow. A regular backwash cycle prolongs the efficiency of the filter as well as provides cleaner water for your home. His is the Manual valve. It has very few moving parts, and easy to use. When you need to backwash a filter, you put it into the backwash cycle for 10 minutes, followed by a rinse for 3 minutes, and then back into the service mode. That is all there is to it! Once a week schedule for backwashing is generally sufficient. For a more economical product, and ease of use, we recommend you get this rather than opting for a unit that does not backwash, read the section on the benefits of backwashing above.
