Greensand Media - 0.5 cu ft
- Ships within 1-2 days
For removal of iron, hydrogen sulfide (sulfur), and manganese
Causes red/orange staining with levels as low as 0.3 ppm. Treats both ferrous (clear water or dissolved) and ferric (red water or oxidized) iron.
Can cause black slime buildup in toilet tanks and may impart a metallic taste to the water
The cause of rotten egg odor. Incorrectly referred to as sulfur most of the time.
Greensand is rated for 3-10 GPM service flow per square foot of tank area
Greensand requires 12-15 GPM per SQUARE foot of tank area for backwashing
Greensand provides excellent removal of iron, hydrogen sulfide, and manganese in most applications. Chemical regenerant ensures maximum oxidation of contaminates for the best results. Amount of media needed can be determined by tank size.

Service flow rate is the manufacturers recommendation for maximum contaminate removal at a constant flow for media alone. Intermittent flow rate and/or lower contaminate levels 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, media life may be significantly reduced.
Green sand works really on taking out the iron in well water.
