For use with potable water to reduce levels of Iron, Manganese and Hydrogen Sulphide.
This filter is designed to remove Iron and Manganese as well as Hydrogen Sulphide (the rotten egg smell) from water. The filter has a timed automatic back wash valve that is programmed to backwash at night to clean the filter of all the Iron and Manganese it has collected during the day.
The timed Iron and Manganese units are supplied with-
Timed automatic back wash valve that can be programmed to regenerate at any time ABS lined cylinder Riser tube with a heavy duty bottom screen A blend of Iron & Manganese removal media
We recommend that you email us a test report on your water before buying the filter to ensure the filter is right for your water or alternatively you can give us a call as the advice is free.
Regulation 31 approval by the Drinking Water Inspectorate.
IRON & MANGANESE UNIT WITH ERIE VALVE - CHARGING & FITTING INSTRUCTIONS
Unscrew control head from cylinder and remove gently
Place riser tube back into cylinder ensuring it is central
The media charges are numbered. Pour first bag of media (labelled ‘1’) into the cylinder ensuring none enters the riser tube and that the riser tube remains central. Use of a funnel is recommended
Shake the cylinder gently to level the media
Repeat steps 3 & 4 for each bag of media in numerical order
Push top screen onto riser tube and replace the control head screwing up firmly
If you have a potassium permanganate tank this should be ready charged (we recommend the level is checked on at least a yearly basis)
Connect the inlet of the iron unit to the water supply, DO NOT connect outlet
If your unit has a potassium permanganate backwash tank:
Locate the 'black tee' on left side of unit head
Partly unscrew black nut
Push the black 3/8" tube from the tank, through the black nut and into the black tee
Tighten nut to secure - do not over-tighten as this could split.
Fit drain line to the drain elbow on top of head
Allow water to flush through the unit slowly until water runs clear
Connect outlet to water line
Connect transformer to power supply.
The system is now in service
INSTRUCTIONS FOR ATTACHING POTASSIUM PERMANGANATE TANK
Partly unscrew black nut at back of valve head on Iron & Manganese Unit
Push tube from potassium permanganate tank through nut in black elbow
Tighten nut to secure. Do not over-tighten as this could split nut
Fit overflow pipe to elbow on side of tank and run to drain
NB: If a PH correction unit is required this must be fitted on the water line BEFORE the iron & manganese unit.
