Mineral Extractor

The MINERAL EXTRACTOR offers an inexpensive way of removing the expelled bed of any size or height tank without removing the tank. It works with water pressure, not suction. It will work on any and all type beds, and will even remove the gravel bed if needed. The MINERAL EXTRACTOR has a sealed cavity that is filled with liquid silicone to lubricate the "O" ring seals on the riser tube. The main body of the MINERAL EXTRACTOR carries a 5 year guarantee against cracking. For larger commercial units with a fixed distributor, there is a 4" offset extension adaptor that will allow you to leave the distributor in place, and use the MINERAL EXTRACTOR with the same ease as on the smaller 2 1/2" residential tanks. This kit will work on all 2 1/2" and 4" tank threads. In most cases, the MINERAL EXTRACTOR will save you its cost every time you use it, not to mention your back. A must for every shop and service truck.

Directions for use:

  • Remove control valve and riser tube from tank top.
  • Slide black adapter on top to bottom of riser tube near the tee.
  • Thread Eco Adaptor to bottom of black adaptor. Clamp assembly to top of the tank as valve would be clamped onto tank. Push riser tube down to bottom of mineral bed. (Tee will stop at gravel bed) Connect garden hose to inlet adapter.
  • Turn water on and mineral will be pushed out of the tank with water pressure at outlet spout. (Will remove 1 cubic foot of resin in approximately 90 seconds.)
