Water Fountain ITX Description
Operation of the Filtration System
Hard water can contain dissolved minerals in the form of calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg), as well as metals such as Iron (Fe), Copper (Cu), Lead (Pb ), Nickel (Ni), Zinc (Zn), Lithium (Li) and other inorganics. Chemical pesticides, herbicides, Chlorine & Chloramine with their disinfectant byproducts can also be found lurking in water. Removal of these contaminants is accomplished by conditioning & filtering the water through a sophisticated ion exchange process as well as catalysis, absorption, adsorption and physical filtration.
Filtration Media – Hydrolyte 525-3, Chlorgon & Catalytic Activator
The exchange media is a high quality, FDA certified, commercial grade strong acid cation structured matrix filtration media with a very high whole bead count, no color throw, physically hard, and is extremely resistant to chlorine oxidation, fouling and attrition. 525-3 filtration media is designed to work together with Pur-gard & Pur-gard Plus performance enhancers to synergistically function at peak efficiency levels, providing you with the water quality, taste & feel that you desire. The media combines high operating capacity with excellent chemical and physical stability for a long dependable life. Chlorgon & catalytic activator work together in synergy to effectively address chlorine, chloramine, pesticides, herbicides, tastes, odors and disinfection by-products. These media are further activated by Pur-Gard & Pur-Gard Plus. A bacteriostatic environment is maintained throughout.
Regeneration of the system is initiated by a sophisticated electronic control timer, which electronically meters filtered water flow to the home and makes decisions to regenerate based on water consumption and program settings.
Regeneration & Control Valve
A fully programmable microprocessor controls System Protector, Tank Fill, Percolation, Inject Pur-Gard, Upflow Ion displacement, Soak, Inject Pur-Gard, Upflow Cleaning Cycle, Rest, Vortex Rinse, Pause, Recover and return to service cycles, ensuring that the effluent water quality is according to specifications. During normal regeneration cycles, your Water Fountain system only uses the exact amount of salt needed to match your water usage history. A hydraulically balanced, EPDM diaphragm utilizes a composite drivetrain. All parts in the waterway are either stainless steel or composite noryl® materials for a long and reliable service life.
Media & Brine Tanks
All models feature a non-corrosive fiberglass resin tank, with a one piece thermoplastic inner liner. The tank has a maximum working pressure of 90 psi and a working temperature up to 120°F. The tank is approved by NSF, UL, FDA, and meets WQA Standard S-100. All fiberglass tanks carry a limited lifetime warranty. An 18 x 33 inch brine tank is included as part of the system. The brine tank is a combination brine maker and salt storage vessel and is made of tough, high-density polyethylene. Larger tanks are available for extra salt storage capacity, if required. Brine tanks 24″ diameter and smaller feature a grid plate for maximum saturation of brine.
Brine refill is automatically controlled by the computer to provide the exact amount of brine for each regeneration. The Brine System has a float and safety valve shut-off, which minimizes the chance of overflowing the brine tank. All units are equipped with an air check.
Pur-Gard & Pur-Gard Plus
A high-efficiency controlled Pur-Gard feeder & reservoir is included with this system to ensure peak performance and maximum protection from inorganic metals and minerals while maximizing system efficiency.
