Features of Whole House Water Filter:
- Filters every drop of water entering the house, providing clean water to kitchen sinks, refrigerator, bathroom sinks, showers, tubs, dishwasher, and washing machine.
- 4-Stage Filter that softens waterwithout salt or chemicals.
- Premium, ultra compact, specially treated coconut shell carbon and acid washed bituminous carbon is excellent for its ability to adsorb organic contaminants such as chlorine, herbicides, pesticides, industrial chemicals, trihalomethanes (THMs), and many more poisonous materials. The list is long and that is great for you.
- KDF Media further control heavy metals, toxic gases, chlorine, hydrogen sulfide, calcium carbonate, magnesium, chromium, bacteria, algae, fungi, and more!
- Fine silica quartzfiltration media which removes dirt and sediment.
- Natural water softener leaves healthy minerals in!The patented multi-field water conditioning unit is a critical component in every Water Boy system. The multi-field module conditions the water non-chemically by restructuring and realigning the polarity of the mineral molecules, without removing the minerals from the water.
- Optional 5th Stage Fluoride removal tank.
- Lasts 15-20 years with no media changes! The back was cycle maintains media effectiveness.
- No maintenance required! Back washes automatically. “Set it and forget it”!
- Economical! For around $20 per month, your family with have fresh, clean, healthy water delivered to every faucet and appliance in your home.
The WATERBOY™ whole house system uses 3 stages of filtration and 1 stage of conditioning. (optional 2nd tank for filtration fluoride and arsenic)
A combination of pharmaceutical grade coconut shell and acid washed bituminous carbon, is specifically formulated for taste and odor improvement, while eliminating the harmful effects of chlorine and disinfectants. CarbonResources.com
An internal sediment filter of fine silica quartz filtration media which removes dirt and sediment in the water.
Patented K.D.F. 55™ redox media consisting of high-purity copper-zinc granules, which improves performance of the carbon to last longer.
The patented multi-field water conditioning unit is a critical component in every Water Boy system. The multi-field module stands head and shoulders over any presently used system in the world today. The multi-field module conditions the water non-chemically by restructuring and realigning the polarity of the mineral molecules, without removing the minerals from the water.
Automatic Backrinse Control
The Fleck Electro mechanical automatic backrinse control valve, automatically back flushes and repositions all filtration media weekly, thereby enhancing the absorptive capacity and extending the active life of the filtration media for 10-15 years
What is the Result?
It’s water that feels better, tastes better and improves every appliance that uses water. Conditioned water cleans better and has a natural smoothness to it without removing the calcium and magnesium. In contrast, traditional water softeners add sodium or potassium to the water , which requires regular cost and maintenance. With the WATERBOY™ System, you never have to add anything, which makes it maintenance free.
No Maintenance Required
No maintenance is required because the system automatically back flushes, rinses and cleans itself between two and four times per month depending on usage. In most cases a filter change is not required for approximately 10-15 years. You don’t have to do anything except enjoy the benefits of fresh filtered, conditioned water always tasting terrific.
Why Activated Charcoal (Carbon)?
Dr. Clark and other respected researchers have found that Activated Charcoal, or Carbon, is the very best product for eliminating polluted chlorine in your water supply. Activated Charcoal is charcoal that has been treated with oxygen to open up millions of tiny pores between the carbon atoms. The use of special manufacturing techniques results in highly porous charcoals that have surface areas of 300-2000 square meters per gram. Activated Charcoals are widely used to adsorb odorous or colored substances from gases or liquids. The huge surface area of Activated Charcoal gives it countless bonding sites. When certain chemicals pass next to the carbon surface, they attach to the surface and are trapped. Also, Activated Charcoal removes some substances by catalytic reaction known as redox. (chlorine, for example).
We have carefully selected from many sources the highest quality Activated Coconut Charcoal (Carbon) available on the market. We pre-treat it with hot water so you can start using your Whole House Water Filter immediately—without an initial hot-water backwash.
Why Loose Carbon Media?
Solid carbon media is subject to “channeling.” Channeling refers to water passing through least resistant path of the carbon pores, thus reducing contact time with carbon. The result? Your water can pass right through the solid carbon media on these “familiar, friendly pathways” with only a minimum of filtering! Loose Carbon Media, on the other hand, can be periodically repositioned by means of a hot-water backwash. This means that your water will not be able to establish those familiar, friendly pathways that enable it to pass through your system virtually unfiltered. With periodic hot-water backwashes, your Whole House Water Filter will always perform at an optimum level to provide you and your family with clean, fresh tasting water. More on carbon filters.
Organic and Volatile Organic Chemical Contaminants Removed by the Whole House Water Filter:
Below is a partial list of contaminants the Activated Charcoal Whole House Water Filter removes from ordinary tap water.
For a more complete indicator on these an other pollutants, please see this “White Paper” on The Ability of Activated Carbon to Remove Various Substances From Water.
- butyl acetate
- ethyl acetate
- ethyl chloride
- isopropyl alcohol
- methyl acetate
- naptha (coal tar)
- oxalic acid
- potassium permanganate
- sodium hypochlorite
- tar emulsion
Please note that carbon medium is generally not effective in removing large amounts of the following contaminants: Bacteria, fluoride, arsenic, cadnium, iron and other heavy metals, and radioactive materials. Some carbon filters can be configured to remove lead. Lead is generally NOT a problem with most public water supplies. It is old, lead pipes in the home that are the culprit. If you suspect high levels of lead, add ionic filtration, KDF (redox), and /or get a high quality point-of-use filter like our Wholly Water unit. More on lead here
Why KDF (Kinetic Degradation Fluxion) – “Redox”
KDF is a patented media that is a giant step forward in water purification. KDF media utilizes an old process in a new way – the oxidation and reduction of ions, known as redox… the principle of Oxidation-Reduction or Redox potential. Redox media remove virtually any soluble heavy metal, help prevent mineral hardness scale accumulation, and reduce levels of microorganisms.
Redox reactions, or oxidation-reduction reactions, primarily involve the transfer of electrons between two chemical species. The compound that loses an electron is said to be oxidized, the one that gains an electron is said to be reduced.
KDF process media are high-purity copper-zinc granules used in a number of pretreatment, primary treatment and wastewater treatment applications. KDF media supplement or replace existing technologies to dramatically extend life of the system, control heavy metals, toxic gases and microorganisms, lower total cost, and decrease maintenance. KDF process media work to reduce or remove chlorine, iron, hydrogen sulfide, lead, mercury, calcium carbonate, magnesium, chromium, bacteria, algae, fungi, and much more!
Iron and hydrogen sulfide are oxidized into insoluable matter and attach to the surface of the media. Heavy metals such as lead, mercury, iron, cadmium and aluminum are removed from the water by the electrochemical process. They are attracted to the surface of the media, much like a magnet.
In short, the redox process works by exchanging electrons with contaminants. This give and take of electrons converts many harmful contaminants into harmless components, such as chlorine to chloride. Other contaminants, including heavy metals, bond to the KDF media, which greatly reduces or virtually eliminates these substances.
