This filter is designed to collect Iron an Manganes and Hydrogen Sulphide (the rotten egg smell) from the water during the day and automatically backwash at night to clean the Iron filter of all the Iron and Manganese it has collected during the day. This filter has a Potassium Permanganate backwash to help with the backwashing of the filter, rest assured the Potassium Permanganate is not used to treat the water it is only used to clean the media in the filter similar to putting rinse aid in the dishwasher.
This filter is designed for water with lower contamination levels and housed that have cold water storage tanks in the loft.
The Iron and Manganese filter will also need a pressurised supply of water to backwash with so will need to be fitted after the pressure vessel although this filter will work in other applications but this will need to be specified when ordering.
