The Filtersorb SP3 Saltless Anti-Scale Media

filtersorbThe technologically advanced Filtersorb SP3 Anti-Scale Media is an innovative solution that prevents all of the negative effects of calcium and magnesium, while allowing the positive health benefits to remain.

The system is maintenance free, salt free and does not require costly regeneration and backwashing.

Why does the Filtersorb SP3 Anti-Scale Media perform better than other anti-scale media on the market?

We provide the only perfectly round nano sized catalytic media with the highest conversion capacity on the market. The Filtersorb SP3 media enhances the overall performance and life expectancy compared to other media available on the market today.

What contact time is needed for a Filtersorb SP3 system?

Depending on the flow rate, the Filtersorb SP3 systems are designed to have contact times as fast as two seconds. The catalytic reaction is immediate and the nano particles are formed immediately on the surface of the media. The nano particles then break off and go to work. The systems are designed to convert 99% of the temporary hardness of calcium and magnesium based on flow rates and equipment design.

How many grains hard will the Filtersorb SP3 Anti-scale media treat?

The Filtersorb SP3 system treats up to 100 grains hard. Contact our technical support team for more information.

What is the life expectancy of the media?

The catalytic reaction is consistent at the highest level for the life of the media. Because of the high quality of manufacturing, we estimate the SP3 Media will last a minimum of 5 years based on proper flow rates and equipment design.

Does the Filtersorb SP3 media require a rest time?

Residential and light industrial applications do not require a rest time. For large industrial commercial applications, please contact us.

Will I feel and different when I shower?

After the existing scale is completely dissolved, many customers have said that they feel a silk like feeling and their hair much cleaner than before the SP3 treatments. Bar soap is not recommended, but liquid body soap is preferred.

Will I see any change in the laundry?

After the existing scale is completely dissolved, your laundry will come out cleaner, feel softer, and last longer.

What should I expect from my dishwasher after installing an SP3 system?

Dishwashers use water from the hot water side of plumbing systems. The water is extremely hot as is the drying cycles, when cleaning and drying the dishes.You may find unusual initial spotting because of the de-scaling taking place. You also may have existing excessive scale build inside the sidewalls and washing arms of the dishwasher. The best way to eliminate the excising scale in the dishwasher is to put a cup of white vinegar in the upper basket during the washing cycle for the first few weeks. You can also use citric acid instead of the white vinegar. This will help dissolve the existing scale in the washer arms and inside surface of the dishwasher. You may need to do this until all of the old scale in the plumbing is dissolved.

Are there specific dishwashing soaps to use?

Harsh detergents with low ph, high levels of chlorine and phosphates can breakdown the crystals and cause spotting on the dishes. It is important to reduce or soap usage as much as 50% and be sure to use eco-friendly dishwashing detergents. You may have to try several all natural dishwashing detergents to find the one that works best for your dishwasher. Seventh Generation dishwashing powder, which you can find at Target, and Lemi-Shine which is available at Wal-Mart are examples of environmental detergents that works well with our media in the dishwasher.

What should I expect after installing a SP3 conditioner in my shower and are there preparations required?

coilsIn the bathrooms, over a few weeks you will see the existing scale slowly dissolve in the shower heads increasing water flow. Remember the calcium being treated is nano sized (one hundred thousandths of the width of a human hair) and will be flowing easier down the sides of the walls and glass doors in the shower. We recommend that you first clean the shower with a cleaning product that dissolves old existing scale that has built up before installation of the SP3 system. One suggestion to use a product called CLR or a similar product.

We then recommend that you coat the walls in the shower with Rain-X, a commercial product used for automobile windshields. The Rain-X allows the majority of the nano particles to be easily washed into the drain. The few nano particles that are left can be easily wiped down because they can no longer adhere to the sides of the shower. Note: Rain-X can also be used on all fittings including the chrome. You can find Rain-X at Wal-Mart or automobile stores.

The technologically advanced Filtersorb SP3 Saltless Anti-Scale Media is an innovative solution that prevents all of the negative effects of calcium and magnesium, while allowing the positive health benefits to remain. The system is maintenance free, salt free and does not require costly regeneration and backwashing. The principle behind our saltless anti-scale media is quite simple. The Filtersorb SP3 saltless anti-scale media acts as a dosing catalyst by accelerating the transformation of the calcium and magnesium minerals into harmless nano particles. When the inlet water goes into the water conditioner tank,the up flow pulls the water through the fluidized Filtersorb SP3 media which then acts as a dosing catalyst, and pulling the hardness minerals of calcium and magnesium out of the solution and then transforming these minerals into inactive nano crystal particles. Because the hardness minerals have been transformed into nano particles, these nanoscopic particles make their way through plumbing systems without attaching onto pipes, fixtures, valves, or heating elements.

before-afterAn important secondary benefit is that the existing scale in pipes and equipment is also dissolved over time. The manganese and calcium already built up on the walls of pipes and equipment will slowly dissolve and in just a few short weeks mineral build up will be eliminated.
