The Upflow Non-Backwashing Catalytic Carbon Filters are a simple low cost method for treating city water to reduce chloramine taste & odor, hydrogen sulfide, and chlorine taste and odor. These upflow filters require no electricity and require no drain connections to operate. The water simply enters the tank down the center of the tank and comes up through the activated catalytic carbon media, lifting the media to prevent any channeling.
AquaSorb CX-MCA 12x40 mesh is a catalytic, high activity granular activated carbon manufactured by steam activation of select coconut shell charcoal. The catalytic activity of this activated carbon makes it highly effective for the reduction of chloramines and hydrogen sulfide from potable water. Its large micropore volume makes it particularly well suited for the reduction of low molecular weight organic compounds and their chlorinated by-products such as chloroform and other trihalomethanes, THM's.
