OverviewCrystal Quest® Whole House filtration systems are engineered for maximum filtration and maximum performance with minimum maintenance. The systems easily handle the tough water problem. They deliver great tasting water and trouble-free operation for many years. It removes impurities that can stain your sinks, showers and tubs, spot your glassware, ruin your clothes, corrode your plumbing and appliances and offend your taste buds.
Water travels through 8 stages of filtration - first cartridge water flows through 20" sediment filter cartridge that removes sediment, silt, sand and dirt. It also extends the life of the water filters. Second cartridge water flows through 6-stage filtration: In stage 1, water flows through one - micron filter pads (1 micron equals 1/25,000th of an inch), which remove suspended particles such as silt, sediment, cyst (Giardia, Cryptosporidium), sand, rust, dirt, and other undissolved matter. In stage 2, water flows through granulated activated carbon (GAC). In stage 3, water flows through ceramic balls, removes harmful bacteria such as E. Coli, Fecal coli form, Salmonella, Streptococcus, and cysts (Cryptosporidium, Giardia) and sediment. In stages 4 and 5, water flows through a bed of media made of a special high-purity alloy blend of two dissimilar metals - copper and zinc Eagle Redox Alloy® 6500, and Eagle Redox Alloy® 9500. In stage 6, water flows through another one-micron filtration pad for further reduction of undesirable particles. The end result is a great reduction or the total elimination of a wide variety of contaminants. Third cartridge water flows through a 20" solid carbon cartridge for removing volatile organic carbon compounds (VOCs, insecticides, pesticides and industrial solvents).
- GAC is universally recognized and widely used as an effective adsorbent for a wide variety of organic contaminants, such as chlorine, chemicals linked to cancer (THM's, benzine) pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, volatile organic compounds, PCB's, MTBE's and hundreds of other chemical contaminants that may be present in water that create bad taste and odors.
- KDF is a major advancement in water treatment technology that works on the electro-chemical and spontaneous-oxidation-reduction (REDOX) principles. Chlorine is instantaneously and almost inexhaustibly oxidized.
- Multi Stage conveniently provides 160,000 gallons of quality, filtered water
