Arsenic (As) enters drinking water supplies from natural deposits in the earth or from agricultural and industrial practices. Surface arsenic-related pollutants enter the groundwater system by gradually moving with the flow of groundwater from rains, melting snow, etc. Arsenic won’t affect the taste or smell of drinking water enough to call attention to such contamination. Like many contaminants in drinking water, arsenic is potentially hazardous at levels or concentrations that do not impart a noticeable taste, odor, or appearance of the water.
Arsenic is not easily dissolved in water. Therefore, if it is found in a water supply, it usually comes from mining or metallurgical operations or from runoff from agricultural areas where materials containing arsenic were used as industrial poisons. Arsenic in water has no color, taste or odor. Arsenic and phosphate easily substitute for one another chemically, therefore commercial grade phosphate can have some arsenic in it. Arsenic is highly toxic and has been classified by the US EPA as a carcinogen, which was derived from toxicity considerations rather than carcinogenicity. The current MCL for arsenic is 0.010 mg/l as of 01/23/06.
Water flows through a 20” sediment cartridge that removes sediment, silt, sand, and dirt.
Water flows through a 20" solid carbon cartridge for removing volatile organic carbon compounds (VOC's), & any remaining insecticides, pesticides and industrial solvents.
Arsenic Removal Water Filter
Water flows through an Arsenic reducing mineral tank.
SMART Water Filter (optional)
Water flows through our SMART Multimedia, which includes 2 types of coconut shell Granulated Activated Carbons (Standard & Catalytic GAC) infused with our Eagle Redox Alloys® 6500 & 9500, and ion exchange resin to reduce contaminants such as heavy metals, i.e. lead & mercury, chlorine, chloramine, & inorganic products such as herbicides, pesticides, petroleum/pharmaceutical by-products and Ceramic and Tourmaline balls to enhance the water and maintain a more alkaline pH.
Filter Media Volume: 1.5 cubic feet
Capacity (gallons): 750,000
Service Flow (GPM): 9-11

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Does the system filter both arsenic 3 & 5?. Where is it manufactured?
Yes it does reduce / remove both depending upon the levels. It is manufactured in the USA Kenesaw GA
How many ppb is this capable at removing? Does it effectively remove arsenic 3? Our levels range from 245 - 505 ppb.
It will address the Arsenic 3 as well. At lower level 245ppb would reduce arsenic by 90-95% and at higher level 505ppb maybe reduce to 80-85%. For best results with removing the Arsenic 3 Chlorination of the well would help to reduce this greatly. You could chlorinate quarterly ( every 3 months to start ) This is using 1 gallon of chlorine bleach to every 20 feet of well letting it set overnight if possible to get maximum results. There is also a dosing system that could be added to the system. ( contact me for more info if interested 800-978-8408 )
I would recommend the 2.0 cf version ( not listed on our web site ) CQE-WH-01148 cost would be $2387.70 above recommendations still woud apply to address the arsenic 3 reduction / removal
Also instead of the pre filter being a sediment we could put a crabon block in its place to address the chlorine more, so pre and post would be carbon block
Please just call me if you have questions 800-978-8408
How often does it need servicing?
The pre filter ( Sediment is rinsable and reusable up to 30 times or 12-18 months ) the tank media is usually good for 5-6 years if backwashed per recommendation and the post filter carbon block needs to be replaced every 12-18 months
Customer service was great. Lady followed up close to every day until I got what I ordered.
Was disappointed in the time it took to get my product. 3-5 days that I was told compared to 21-28 when I actually got it is quite a big difference!!
Instructions for the install weren’t very clear but crystal quest has been helpful will all my questions.
