CRYSTAL QUEST® CQ-IGS is formulated from a glauconite green sand which is capable of reducing iron, manganese and hydrogen sulfide from water through oxidation and filtration. Soluble iron and manganese are oxidized and precipitated by contact with higher oxides of manganese on the CQ-IGS granules. The hydrogen sulfide is reduced by oxidation to an insoluble sulfur precipitate. Precipitates are then filtered and removed by backwashing. When the oxidizing capacity power of the CQ-IGS bed is exhausted, the bed has to be regenerated with a weak potassium permanganate (KMnO4) solution, thus restoring the oxidizing capacity of the bed. 1½ to 2 ounces of potassium permanganate, in solution, per cubic foot of CQ-IGS is considered sufficient for normal regeneration. It is required to vigorously backwash and regenerate the bed when it is placed in service and before its oxidation capacity is totally exhausted. Operating the bed after oxidation capacity is exhausted will reduce its service life and may cause staining.

CRYSTAL QUEST® Whole House Iron, Manganese and Hydrogen Sulfide Water Filter
CRYSTAL QUEST® Whole House IRON, MANGANESE AND HYDROGEN SULFIDE Water Filters contain naturally mined ore of manganese dioxide, which has been used in water treatment for more than 75 years for hydrogen sulfide, iron and manganese reduction. It functions as a catalyst, but itself remains relatively unchanged. It works on a principle whereby the hydrogen sulfide, iron and manganese are oxidized and trapped on the media. Simple backwashing cleans the filter. No regeneration is required. Nothing is imparted into the drinking water and it has a high capacity for low contaminant concentrations, and can be used in conjunction with aeration, chlorination, ozone or other pretreatment methods for difficult applications. Chlorine or other oxidants accelerate the catalytic reaction.
ALL SYSTEMS INCLUDE: Automatic Back Washing which includes:
Simple, User friendly, easy to program, dependable, fully shipped with filtration media already in the tank. WE DO NOT ship filtration media separately for our customers to pour in. The system connects to the main line of your home and filters all the incoming water to it. It requires a nearby power outlet and drain source (usually the washing machine drain). We ship complete and ready to be plumbed in.
All Fiberglass™ and Solid 316-Stainless Steel Tanks are backed by an exclusive 10-year warranty.
3/4" or 1" Stainless Steel Bypass Valve Low voltage transformer
Automatic (self-backwashing) - This is a Solid state microprocessor with LED display Electronics control valve system that automatically removes the trapped contaminants within the filter bed and washes them down the drain.
CRYSTAL QUEST® Whole House Iron, Manganese and Hydrogen Sulfide Removal System
Stage 1, water flows through a 20" sediment filter cartridge that removes sediment, silt, sand and dirt. Also extends the life of the water softener and water filters and prevents damage to control valves or pumps.
Stage 3, water flows through a 20" solid carbon cartridge for removing volatile organic carbon compounds (VOC's), insecticides, pesticides and industrial solvents. (If present in the water and depending on consumption and condition of your water.)
Stage 3, 4 and 5, water travels through a 1.5 or 2.0 cubic foot media tank with Multi Media consisting of a mixture of copper and zinc KDF-55D®, KDF-85D® and through a bed of GAC (Granular Activated Carbon) which removes hundreds of contaminates which may be in the water.Click here for media product data
Stage 6, water flows through a 5 Micron 20" solid carbon block cartridge for removing volatile organic carbon compounds (VOC's), insecticides, pesticides and industrial solvents. (If present in the water and depending on consumption and condition of your water.)
