CuZn Water Filtration Systems Made in the USA

CuZn Whole House Water Filtration Systems

The Water Filter for the Whole House That Protects
Your Health, Plumbing and Appliances

Acidic Water - Arsenic - Chlorine - Chloramines - Fluoride - Hardness - Iron & Sulphur - Nitrates - 1" Pipes

CuZn Water Filtration Systems, Inc. has been a water filtration specialist since 1987. They are the developer of the patented fast flow GRA (Granular Radial Axel) cartridge used in the 45,000 and 80,000 whole house systems, with KDF55 and the highly rated Activated Acid Washed Coconut Shell Carbon. The KDF-Carbon combination works together to remove or reduce chlorine, iron, lead and other heavy metals, some bacteria and other micro-organisms, hydrogen sulfide, disinfection by-products (DBPs), trihalomethanes (THMs), herbicides, pesticides and hundreds of other organic and inorganic contaminants from the water supply. It also removes sediment, algae, molds, scale, bad taste and odors and reduces scale and hardness, but retains minerals to balance water.

The CuZn GRA cartridge is also excellent in situations where low levels of sulfur and iron are present and a CuZn Whole House system is not feasible. Sulfur and iron expend the media more quickly than other contaminants, so refilling the system is economical and environmentally responsible.

CuZn Whole House Water Filter Systems provide an uninterrupted supply of pure, filtered water throughout the whole house and yard. All the water used for drinking, cooking, bathing, washing, laundry and landscaping benefits from being purified by one central whole house system. CuZn's water filter for the whole house safeguards health and protects plumbing and appliances from staining, corrosion and scale.

The whole house system removes hundreds of contaminants including chlorine, lead, heavy metals, iron, hydrogen sulfide and hard scale. CuZn-filtered water is noticeably softer without salts or chemicals. Specialty whole house systems are also available for chloramine, fluoride, nitrates, arsenic and hardness.

CuZn's whole house water filters provide years of service and can be refilled or replaced, depending on the media type, when the media is exhausted. For a more detailed discussion about CuZn filtration medias, click here.

Hardness

CuZn has created a smarter, smaller salt free option to remove hardness, and, unlike other water softener systems, also removes other contaminants from your water. Their patented Foam Technology allows them to combine multiple filtration medias in a Big Blue cartridge with minimal pressure loss. This unique system comes in a double split-flow unit that is available in 10 45,000 gallon or 20 80,000 gallon refillable tanks. This innovative water softener and water purifier system includes:

  • Filtersorb SB3 to condition and soften your water up to 25 grains of hardness. This media is a catalyst media that transforms the dissolved calcium and magnesium carbonate into non-charged neutral chemical bonds (calcite crystals). When the crystals become nanometer (microscopic), they detach and are carried away by the water flow.

Chloramine High Capacity 300,500 GallonBackwashing Whole House SystemsWhole House Calcite Tank to Raise pH Water Levels

One of the advantages of Calcite is its self-limiting property. When properly applied, it corrects pH only enough to reach a non-corrosive equilibrium. It does not overcorrect under normal conditions. Upon contact with Calcite, acidic waters slowly dissolve the calcium carbonate to raise the pH, which reduces the pipe corrosion potential of leaching of copper, lead and other metals found in typical plumbing systems.

Periodic backwashing will prevent packing, reclassify the bed and maintain high service rates. Depending on pH, water chemistry and service flow, the Calcite bed will have to be periodically replenished as the Calcite is depleted. reduce/remove iron, hydrogen sulfide and control microorganisms in potable water without the use of chemicals.

Backwashing Frequently Asked Questions

Lots of folks have asked questions about the backwashing head on the whole house system. Here are the five most commonly asked questions and the answers.

What is backwashing?
Backwashing is the process of forcing water through the filter in the wrong direction to unclog the dirt and sediment which has blocked the filter. Auto-backwashing filters refresh (backwash) themselves periodically to insure an optimum level of performance and to prevent "channeling". Whole house auto-backwashing filters greatly enhance the performance of softener systems. Backwashing is a common practice for certain whole house and commercial units which are treating large volumes of water for utility purposes but it is not a recognized practice for small point of use drinking water systems.

How many gallons does it use in the backwash?
Around fifty gallons. It could be slightly more or less depending upon water pressure.

How long does the backwashing last?
It lasts approximately 10 minutes.

What is the flow rate of the backwash water?
5-7 gallons per minute flow rate

Does it have to backwash every day?
It's advisable to backwash daily but not mandatory. Often times systems on municipally treated water backwash once every three or four days. Systems on wells are urged to backwash daily. The frequency of backwash depends greatly upon the quality of water.
