Carbon filtration is a great addition to any home, providing cleaner, better tasting water in just about any situation. Backwashing tank systems provide all the benefits of carbon filtration, without the constant maintenance and cost associated with cartridge filters.
Homes on city water will enjoy chlorine and chloramine removal, eliminating a harmful chemical and preventing respitory problems that may be associated with chlorinated water. Homes on well water will benefit from the removal herbicides and pesticides that can find their way into water supplies. In both cases, carbon filtration improves the appeal of water, removing tastes and odors that can discourage healthy drinking water habits.
Controlled by the Fleck 5600SXT digital control head, this system automatically backwashes. The backwash process simply forces water rapidly through the system in reverse direction, lifting the media and flushing accumulated particulates down the drain. Made by Fleck, the #1 manufacturer of control heads in the US, the digital control head offers an easy to use LCD display and touchpad controls as well as shorter, more efficient backwashes.

Service flow rate is the manufacturers recommendation for maximum removal of all contaminates at a constant flow. Intermittent flow rate, lower contaminate levels and/or fewer contaminates MAY allow higher treatment flow rates.
Backwash Flow Rates
The backwash flow rate is the minimum rate that MUST be available to ensure proper backwashing and adequate media life. While lower flows can be used and MAY provide adequate results, using less than the recommended flows WILL void the 30-day satisfaction guarantee. Warranties on the tank and control valve will remain unaffected.
The unit was received in excellent condition. I was replacing a 20+ year old carbon filter. The plastic bypass valve was relatively easy to hook into my existing copper plumbing using flexible piping. Since the unit was already filled with carbon , the assembly of the control head was a very straight forward process and the filling on the tank was simple. Programming of the control head was reasonably easy although the head is also used for water softeners so instruction mentioned settings that did not exist as the head was configured to work as a carbon filter. Instructions were very good. I also viewed YouTube videos showing the installation process. AFW Filters answered my pre-.sale questions with clarity. I understand that my installation with existing plumbing was much easier than a from scratch installation. I recommend this product and AFW Filters.
