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.

    I'm a customer since 2012 and want to at first to say Abundant Water Co provide fast service, fast feedback on my calls and has excellent installation instructions for their product on the website. Each time having a question I go to these instructions and could find the answer. As of Filox - it works very good for my home removing iron from well water.

    Clear water at last

    This media is amazing. I have a high iron content in my well water. It would stain everything and tasted terrible. Now it is as clear as bottled water and I can taste my coffee again.

    Works very well at removing iron

    Posted by Mike Howe on May 3 2016

    The Filox media works very well at removing iron from our water. We have between 15 and 20 ppm iron and never have iron problems. I give it only 4 stars because it is so finely ground that after about 24 months, it has traveled through the garnet and plugged up the intake. Which requires cleaning the tank and replacing the media.

    Good water again!

    We have 15ppm iron in our water. This means we need a robust system. This system is the first (and NOT the most expensive) that has cleaned our water. The filox medium is good for about three years. Most definitely a five star investment.

    We have been using this and it works great. It's time to replenish, and I have no problem buying and using it again.
