Types and features

The cartridge fillers are embedded, each of which is designed to purify water from various impurities:

  • To clean mechanically. Made from a porous material, hold impurities of size up to 50 microns. Are used predominantly as the first stage in the filtration system. Also they are put to prevent the ingress of contaminants in household appliances (water heater, dishwasher) and to minimize the risk of their parts of the deposits. Replacement recommended every 12 months or on demand (when the water pressure drops the goal of the filter).
  • For softening, or magcaisa filter cartridges. They have small pellets made of special resins, which replace the ions of CA and Mg by Na ions, so that the water is softened. So it becomes more suitable for home appliances, because it does not provoke the formation of deposits inside Laundry (not accelerates the ageing process of tissues, such as hard water). For the health of the softness of the water is also useful – it has no particles that contribute to the development of chronic diseases. Interestingly, replacement of this filter element may not be necessary: when the resin becomes saturated with CA and Mg ions, it is regenerated by means of salt. However, this reduces the life of the product.
  • For the removal of iron, or obezzhelezivaniya. Water from wells may have a metallic taste. To remove it, use filter elements with natural fillers: they oxidize the iron, transforming it into forms that are available to filter mechanically.
  • Carbon cartridges. Delay organochlorine substances, pesticides, chemical elements with a size of 0.5–10 microns. Make them out of coal sometimes with the addition of silver (to provide and disinfectant effect).
  • The mineralizer. Perform the mineralization of water that has passed through obratnoosmoticheskiye membrane. Change them usually once a year.
