HOW
YOUR
WATER
FILTER
WORKS
B. FILTER APPLICATIONS
IMPORTANT:
Sears water
filters are sometimes
installed
alone in the water
system,
but most
often other wa-
ter treating
equipment
is needed.
Always
be sure to have your water
tested
by a qualified
testing
laboratory.
If you need
help,
ask at your
Sears
store, or call the Kenmore
Water Line, 1- 800- 426- 9345.
CLARIFYING
FILTER
A Sears
Clarifying
Filter
takes
sediments
such
as
dirt,
sand,
silt, clay and fine organic
matter
out of
water.
You can see sediments
in water
by filling
a
clear drinking
glass. When
held up to light, you can
see the particles
floating
in the water,
or settled
to the
bottom
of the glass. The filter is filled with "filter
ag-
gregate"
mineral
that traps
and holds
the sediments
as the water
flows
through
it.
The
Clarifier
is sometimes
installed
alone
but
is
often
followed
by a water
softener.
Besides
soften-
ing the water,
the water
softener
catches
sediments
that may
get through
the filter.
NOTE:
If you install
the clarifying
filter along with
a Sears
Solution
Dispensing
System,
Read
the dis-
pensing
system
owners
manual
for treating
a pri-
vate well before
installing.
NEUTRALIZER
FILTER
All water,
when
chemically
analyzed,
is either
acid,
neutral
or base (alkaline).
To measure
this, the water
is given
a pH value
between
0 and 14. Water
is acid
if the pH is from
0 to 6.9. At 7, the water
is neutral,
and above
that the water
is alkaline.
Your Sears neutralizing
filter treats
acid water
when
the pH is from
6.0 to 6.7. A Sears
Cartridge
Filter
with a Phosphate
Crystal
Cartridge
is often used
to
treat water
with a pH of 6.8 to 6.9. Acid water
short-
ens the life of iron pipe,
corrodes
copper
and brass
pipe, and makes
green stains
on pluming
fixtures.
In
time,
it will even
etch porcelain
enamel.
The filter
has a special
mineral
(Neutralite)
that raises
the pH
of the water
to help
reduce
these
acid water
prob-
lems.
TASTE & ODOR FILTER
A Sears
taste
& odor
filter
removes
most
tastes,
odors
and
certain
organic
colors
from
water.
Bad
tastes
and odors
come
from many
different
causes.
Often,
one causes
the other.
The activated
carbon
bed, in the taste
& odor
filter, has a great
ability
for
taking
tastes
and odors
out of water.
NOTE:
If your
water
has hydrogen
sulfide
(rotten
egg taste
or odor),
be sure to get a qualified
testing
laboratories
recommendation
for proper
treatment.
