Whole house water filter / SOFTENER
How it works ?
Whole house water filter (SOFTENER) is fixed between underground sump or direct to pump discharge to over head tank . During pumping water from borewell / from sump some sediments/ particles which are not visible from necked eyes will be arrested in 4 stages.
What is 4 Stage Filtration?
Stage 1 : Pre filter @10 micron
Here when you collect water from bore well in a glass, water looks very clean and with no colour. When we pass same water in 10 Micron filter media all suspended solids like mud particles etc are arrested (ref Pic 3) and made to flow to carbon filter.
Stage 2 Carbon filter :
Water from the pre filter out let is connected to carbon filter inlet , All organic and inorganic substance , smell, taste is controlled thru activated carbon and allowed for sequester process.
Stage 3 Sequester :
The main reason for Hardness in water is Calcium & Magnesium, once we neutralise this the water becomes soft. This process is called sequester .This improves water flow, avoids Scale formation, corrosion, white spots , and reduce chlorine dosing
The use of Silphos as sequester makes water soft.
Stage filtration 4 :
Check filter @ 1Micron : This is most Important stage in water purification, since the water is in process from Stage 1 to Stage 3 all suspended solids carryover from one stage to other stage is completely arrested to the extent of 1 micron a clean water is collected in over head storage tank for distribution to “WHOLE HOUSE” This water is soft water / Sequester water. This water is soft and avoids scaling (even remove old deposits of scaling)
