AND BACKWASH
CLARIFIER
FILTER
SERVICE
During
service
(Figure
6) water
goes into the filter
and DOWN
through
the bed of mineral.
The mineral
takes
the dirt,
sand,
silt, clay and
other
sediments
out of the water
and holds
it in the bed. Clear, clean
water
goes out of the filter and into the house
pipes.
NEUTRALIZER
FILTER
As low pH (acid) water
flows DOWN
through
the
filter, neutralite
mineral
is slowly
dissolved
to raise
the
pH.
The
neutralized
or non-acid
water
then
flows
into the house
water
pipes.
Because
the neu-
tralite
does
dissolve,
you have
to add new mineral
at least
once each year, and sometimes
more
often
(see page
3-1).
BACKWASH
Backwash
is a reverse
or UPWARD
fast flow of wa-
ter through
the filter. The fast, upward
flow flushes
dirt, sediment,
iron, etc., from
the mineral
bed and
to the drain.
The bed is lifted and expanded
for good
cleaning.
The bed is also mixed
to remove
any chan-
nels water
flow may have formed
through
the min-
eral.
Following
backwash,
water
again
changes
direction
to flow downward
through
the bed at a fast rate. The
mineral
bed is repacked
and prepared
for return
to
service.

TASTE
AND
ODOR
FILTER
The taste
and odor filter is filled with
activated
car-
bon. As water
flows into and DOWN
through
the fil-
ter (Figure
6), the tastes
and/or
odors
are adsorbed
and held by the carbon.
Water without
bad tastes
or
odors
goes into the house
pipes.
When
the activated
carbon
no longer
takes the tastes
and/or
odors
out of the water,
you must
replace
it
(see page 3- 3). The carbon
usually
lasts for up to one
year,
and
sometimes
longer.
It depends
on how
much
water
you use, and how
much
taste
and/or
odor
is in the water.
