Catalytic carbon is a high activity granular carbon that is specifically designed for greater reduction of chloramines and hydrogen sulfide from water. It provides much greater adsorbtion than standard carbon, which results in better contaminant removal and longer lasting media.
Removes a wide range of chemicals & odors much better than standard carbon, including chlorine, chloramines, herbicides, pesticides, MTBE, THM, and hydrogen sulfide.
Vortech resin tank has an integrated flow distribution plate that creates a stronger and more even flow through the media than standard filter gravel. This eliminates the need for gravel and ensures a more efficient system, and a cleaner, longer lasting media
The upflow system eliminates the need for backwashing or electricity to operate. Additionally, the system requires no chemicals or additives. This results in a low maintenance system with low operating costs. These systems are intended for water supplies with little to no sediment or particulates.
Simple head eliminates moving parts to reduce maintenance costs
Designed for 3 bathroom and 4-6 people and/or homes with flows matching system capacities
Treats a maximum flow rate of 10 gallons per minute (see more info tab for details)
Simple system connections and detailed installation instructions allow most homeowners to install this system themselves. For those who prefer to leave the work to a professional, most plumbers can install the system in 1-2 hours.
Eliminate wastewater and reduce your energy use with a GreenFlow™ Carbon system. This upflow system reverses the normal flow of water through the media bed, eliminating the need for a backwash. Since the media works through the process of adsorption, you still get effective treatment of chlorine, tastes, odors, and chemicals all without electricity or wasted water.
The catalytic activity of this activated carbon makes it highly effective for the reduction of chloramines and hydrogen sulfide from potable water. Its large micropore volume makes it particularly well suited for the reduction of low molecular weight organic compounds and their chlorinated by-products such as chloroform and other trihalomethanes (THMs). This provides excellent removal of chlorine, chloramines, and hydrogen sulfide.
Homes on city water will enjoy chlorine and chloramine removal, eliminating a harmful chemical and preventing respiratory problems that may be associated with chlorinated water. Homes on well water will benefit from the removal of 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.

Service flow rate is the manufacturer's recommendation for maximum removal of all contaminants at a constant flow. Intermittent flow rate, lower contaminant levels and/or fewer contaminants MAY allow higher treatment flow rates. In most applications intermittent flow rates of 2-3 times the rated flow rate MAY be possible.
