Generally, the primary problems with city water are Calcium & Magnesium Hardness, Chlorine, and the Carcinogens which Chlorine produces. Less often, there are additional issues as well such as Sulfur, Iron, Lead, or Fluoride. The good news is that SpringPure MAX Catalytic Filter & IX Softener removes ALL these impurities and more. If Hardness is not an issue, then the IX Softener portion is not necessary, for a reduced price.
Carcinogens in City Water and Well Water:
Most city waters contain carcinogens produced in the water from the presence of Chlorine and organics that may be present. Activated Carbon filters DO NOT remove these carcinogens (TriHaloMethanes & Halic Acids). Annual municipality reports which show carcinogen levels below maximum allowed limits are actually only reporting 2 samples during the course of the year. In the minds of most people, maintenance of carcinogens below a maximum that is only reported twice annually does not verify “safe water.” Well water which uses oxidizers such as Chlorine have the same carcinogenic potential problems as city water, but usually are not even tested twice annually. Take control of your own health. Be sure your water is properly treated with SpringPure MAX Catalytic Filter. Remember, Activated Carbon filters DO NOT remove these carcinogens (TriHaloMethanes & Halic Acids).
Residential Well & Spring Water Treatment
G enerally, the contaminants most often encountered in well water may include Iron, Sulfur, Manganese, Hardness, Arsenic, and/or Bacteria . . The good news is that SpringPure MAX Catalytic Filter & IX Softener with UV Light remove ALL these impurities and more. If Hardness is not an issue or Bacteria is not an issue, then the IX Softener option and/or the UV Light option may not be necessary, therefore reducing the cost.
Sulfur, Arsenic, Fluoride, Lead, Iron, Manganese, Copper, Zinc, Nickel, & other Heavy Metals; Chlorine, Chloramines, Carcinogens derived from Chlorine such as Trihalomethanes (THA), Humic Acid (HA); Phosphates, Radium, Radio Nuclides, Sediments, Suspended Solids to <3 microns, Turbidity, Organics,
Color, Odor, & Bacteria.
How it Works
SpringPure MAX Catalytic Filter removes contaminants in a four-step process.
A refreshed compressed air/oxygen chamber reacts to oxidize contaminants in the water to a safe molecular compound form, and/or precipitates it so that it can be filtered in subsequent steps. SpringPure’s proprietary, fully programmable control head monitors the flow of water coming in to be treated, metering it, allowing subsequent backwash and regeneration to be controlled by either it’s a built-in- water meter, or it’s time function. The SpringPure control head refreshes the oxygen compression chamber after each regeneration.
Water then passes through a unique proprietary regenerable catalytic media, NSF approved, which removes mal tastes, malodors, chlorine, its carcinogenic byproducts, fluorides, sulfur, iron, and many other heavy metals. Partial regeneration of the Catalytic media is achieved with each regeneration.
The next treatment step occurring is filtration of oxidized molecular compounds which have previously undergone an oxidation reaction. These filtered contaminants are removed from the system during backwash, filtering down to less than 3 microns, for clean water with no sediment.
Then the treated water flows through a final oxidizing media, also capable of removing heavy metals, bad gases such as Sulfur, and chlorinated hydrocarbons, even radon and radionuclides. In summary,
