Central Water Filtration System Features

No Filters to Replace—Ever

The Central Water Filtration System automatically flushes, cleans and drains its internal filter every 14 days, eliminating the need for costly replacement filters.

FilterSense® Technology

The Central Water Filtration System utilizes FilterSense® Technology, which allows the media bed to continually filter sediment and chlorine throughout the entire home.  This maintenance free system automatically cleans itself every 14 days and can also be programmed to clean itself more or less frequently depending on the water conditions in your area.

Reduces Chlorine Taste and Odor

The Central Water Filtration System will filter sediment, chlorine and other elements from your water supply.

Reduces Sediment

The media bed and the screen located in the top of the system work together to remove sediment from your water supply. The system has been tested to filter sediment and other particles to 40 microns. By comparison, human hair is about 75 microns in diameter.

High Flow Valve

Delivers great water flow with minimal pressure drop to your shower and appliances. Connects to plumbing up to 1” in diameter.

Maintains Household Water Pressure

Unlike other systems, it won’t reduce water pressure to your shower and major appliances.

Do-It-Yourself Installation Kit

Comes with detailed instructions and everything to hook up to 1” NPT plumbing, including a bypass valve.  You will need the necessary connectors and enough tubing to connect from the water softener to your existing plumbing, access to 110V electrical outlet, and drain.  See installation manual for details.

1 Year Full Parts and Labor Warranty

The warranty on this unit is: – 1 year full parts and labor – 3 years on the electronics – 10 years on the tanks.
