Product Description

The Crystal Quest Whole House Sediment Filter System is designed for the removal of turbidity in the water caused by sand, silt, ferric iron and oxidized manganese or sulfur. The Whole House Sediment Water Filter's fractured edges and irregular surface provides a high surface area and complex flow path for efficient removal of suspended matter through out the filter bed, typically reducing suspended solids down to the 20-40 micron range. Sediment water filter's larger particle size creates less pressure loss through the filter and allows deeper sediment penetration into the bed for higher sediment loading and longer filter runs. This large and irregular shape prevents the screening and caking of sediment in the top several inches of the filter bed as happens in the typical sand filter, thus preventing a rapid build up of head loss and blinding problems. The filter's light weight means lower backwash rates and better bed expansion to release trapped sediment and rinse the filter media during the backwash cycle. This ideal combination of particle shape, size and density make it a good choice where quality water filtration and water conservation are important.

This whole house water filter system is simple, user friendly, dependable, and shipped ready for installation with filtration media already in the tank. Unlike other makers, Crystal Quest DOES NOT ship filtration media separately for the customer to pour in. Ships to you complete and ready to be plumbed in.

The system connects to the main line of your home and filters all the incoming water to it. It requires a nearby power outlet and drain source (usually the washing machine drain).

This system uses a self-backwashing solid state microprocessor with LED display electronic control valve that automatically removes the trapped contaminants within the filter bed and washes them down the drain.

Four-Stage Water Softening & Filtration Process

Whole House Water Softener & Sediment Filtration System - Chrome
In stage 1, water flows through a 20" sediment filter cartridge that removes sediment, silt, sand and dirt. Also extends the life of water softeners and water filters and prevents damage to control valves or pumps.

In stage 2, water flows through an ion exchange mineral tank and brine water conditioner. The mineral tank contains CQ-WSR-1000, which is a high capacity premium grade bead form conventional gel polystyrene sulphonate cation exchange resin designed for use in industrial or household water conditioning equipment. It removes the hardness ions, e.g. calcium and magnesium, replacing them with sodium ions. When the resin bed is exhausted and hardness ions begin to break through, capacity is restored by regeneration with common salt.

In Stage 3, water flows through a Sediment mineral tank, which efficiently removes sediment and suspended matter down to the 20 micron range. The tank is filled with the sediment removing media, CQ-S100. CQ-S100 Sediment media is a non-hydrous silicon dioxide media which can be used as a highly efficient filter media for the reduction of suspended matter. CQ-S100® has many outstanding advantages over the more common granular filter medias used for suspended solids reduction. It's fractured edges and irregular surface provides a high surface area and complex flow path for efficient removal of suspended matter through out the filter bed, typically reducing suspended solids down to the 20-40 micron range. CQ-S100's larger particle size creates less pressure loss through the filter and allows deeper sediment penetration into the bed for higher sediment loading and longer filter runs. This large and irregular shape prevents the screening and caking of sediment in the top several inches of the filter bed as happens in the typical sand filter, thus preventing a rapid build up of head loss and blinding problems. CQ-S100’s light weight means lower backwash rates and better bed expansion to release trapped sediment and rinse the filter media during the backwash cycle. This ideal combination of particle shape, size and density makes it a good choice where quality water filtration and water conservation are important.

In stage 4, water flows through a 20" solid carbon cartridge for removing volatile organic carbon compounds (VOC's), insecticides, pesticides and industrial solvents.
