What is Chlorine?

Chlorine enters our drinking water supply because it is used as a disinfectant. Chlorine is ideal for reducing bacteria and other harmful microorganisms.
Chlorine poisoning can occur if too much is swallowed or inhaled. Chlorine poisoning from drinking water can be mild to moderate, affecting the respiratory, digestive and circulatory systems. Don't worry, Tier1 Water is here to Protect Every Drop.

How does the WH-CB-BW-1054 help?

The Essential Certified Series WH-CB-BW-1054 utilizes Granular Activated Carbon (GAC), the media of choice, to reduce chlorine. While chlorine makes the water supply safer to drink, it is known to contribute to dry, itchy skin and has a noticeable foul taste and odor. As noted, chlorine has a negative impact on your hair, eyes and skin and can be harmful if inhaled. Chlorine can also negatively impact your foods and beverages by altering their tastes. The Essential Certified Series WH-CB-BW-1054 immediately goes to work reducing chlorine taste and odor.

How Back Washing Filters Work

Backwashing is a process that reverses the flow of water to rinse and resettle the media of the tank to prevent channeling, retain the effectiveness of the media, and remove trapped contaminants. To begin the backwash process, water flow is reversed and sent down the riser tube which normally carries the filtered water out of the tank. The water entering the media tank actually lifts the media bed, swirling it and lifting contaminants trapped in the media upward, this water is then funneled out the drain line. This process of cleansing the filter media usually lasts for around 10 minutes. Following the backwash phase there is a rinse cycle which replicates the normal flow of water through the media, this rinses the media again and allows it to settle into its serviceable position. With the media resettled and cleansed, water filtration may resume.

"Channeling" Inefficiencies

Channeling is a process caused by a liquids natural tendency to follow the path of least resistance. Over time water will find a path it can flow the fastest through and will carve a path or channel following its flow. This process causes a lowered system effectiveness because water will begin to flow around the filter media instead of flowing through it as intended. To fight this process and remove suspended contaminants a backwash and rinse cycle will mix up the media and then resettle it, counteracting the channeling process and providing maximum contact between the water and filtering media.
