Downflow Backwashing System
Proper back wash helps to provide consistent flow, increase contaminant removal and longer media life
MORE CONTACT… MORE CONTAMINANT REMOVAL
Every home and installation area is different. Based on equipment and location, all systems need to be set up with a backwash for the most effective contaminant removal. Why? Because backwashing provides the needed time and flow to re-classify the media bed on a periodic basis. In other words, the backwash cycle is deliberately designed to first lift, shuffle, and then resettle the media. The backwash cycle forces the water to establish new pathways through the media allowing for an even flow, exposing the water to fresh carbon. This results in more contact and thus, more contaminant removal.
