Filtration is a very important part of a water treatment system when the removal of a particle is necessary.
Types of Filtration
GRANULAR FILTER MEDIA
-For removal of course particles, oxidized iron, sulfur, manganese and color
-Removes particles down to the sub-micron level. Usually applied to pesticide, nitrate, sulphate, high TDS and chloride problems. Items include reverse osmosis and cartridge filters.
Types of Granular Filter Media
- SPECIAL MEDIA – SP10
In 1987, OPW developed this special media for removing iron, sulfur, manganese and biofilm. It resists fouling by being non-porous, inert, pH resistant and lightweight. The SP10 yields high service flow rates with low backwash rates. Best of all it is inexpensive and can last indefinitely.
- GAC (carbon)
A porous media designed to remove chemical, metallic and organic tastes/odors. Has a finite life.
- CATION RESIN
Known as softener resins to remove hardness (calcium/magnesium) from the water. Backwashes with a brine solution.
- ANION RESIN
Used as a color remover for tannic acid (tannins). Backwashes with a brine solution.
Filter Tanks & Control Valves
All media must be put in a vessel or tank. Tanks are constructed of an internal poly shell, wrapped with fiberglass for strength.
Each tank is sized according to…..
- Gallons per minute flow.
- Gallons per day usage.
- Particle type to be removed.
Automatic Filter Backwash Control Valves
The backwash valve changes the direction of flow through the media tank allowing the cleansing/rinse cycles to occur. This can be done on a timer or water meter basis. Backwash valves have a glass filled poly body, stainless pistons, and other plastic/steel parts. The valves have been in use for over 30 years.

Unlimited Oxidized Particle Removal
The C.A.R. filtration line is a specially designed cartridge filter that will remove an UNLIMITED amount of:
- Clay, Sand, Silt, Sediment
- Slimy Biofilm
The C.A.R. Eliminates The Need For:
- Multiple Backwashes per Day
- Meter Backwash Valves
- Clean Water Backwash
- Water Wasted on Extensive Backwashes
Whole House Chlorine, Organic Color & Odor Removal
Ozone Pure Water has many systems that eliminate water problems such as:
- Chemical chlorine taste and odor
- Hazardous chemical by-products
Whole House Treatment System:
GAC4 Filter: 7.5” x 22”, wall mounted, 1” mpt inlet/outlet.
This filter will remove up to 5 ppm chlorine for over 100,000 gallons.
This equates to typically a once per year change.
The GAC4 can also remove up to 2 ppm of Tannic Acid.
