WITH 7 PPM IORN AND A 6.5 PH YOU WOULD NEED TO ADJUST THE PH FIRST. WHEN PH IS LOWER THAN 6.9
RESIN BEDS IN SYSTEMS WILL NOT FULLY SOFTEN THE WATER BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF OXYGEN IN WATER AT LOWER PH LEVELS. AS FOR THE IORN, IT WOULD HAVE TO BE OXIDIZED FIRST. MOST RESINS WILL NOT HANDLE MORE THAN 2PPM OF IORN AND IORN FOULING WILL OCCUR CLOGGING UP THE RESIN BED. SO, YOU OXIDIZE THE IORN WITH A DIFFUSSION SYSTEM, THEN THE IORN HAS TO BE CAUGHT OR TRAPPED. YOU WOULD NEED AN IORN FILTER TO ACCOMPLISH THIS. THEN A SOFTENER TO SOFTEN THE WATER. CHOOSING EQUIPTMENT
LOOK INTO FLOW RATES, BACKWASH FLOW RATES, AND PRESSURE DROPS OF EQUIPTMENT BEING CONSIDERED.
THE NAHBRC HAS ALERTED BUILDERS AND PLUMBERS THAT
FLOW RATE AND PRESSURE DROP REQUIREMENTS ARE NOT BEING MEET ACCORDING TO PLUMBING CODES. FOR MORE INFORMATION CHECK OUT OUR WEBSITE www.jwsmfg.com
MEDIAS(COMPOUNDS USED IN SYSTEMS), ARE TO BE USED ACCORDING TO THE MANUFACTURERS SPECIFICATION, YOU WILL FIND THAT MEDIAS NEED AN 8 TO 12 GALLON PER MINUTE BACKWASH FLOW RATE. MOST SYSTEMS AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET TODAY DO NOT MEET BACKWASH FLOW RATE REQUIREMENTS. MEANING THE MEDIAS USED EVENTUALLY FAIL BECAUSE OF THIS.
MAKE SURE YOU LOOK INTO SYSTEMS THOUROUGHLY.
ASK FOR CERTIFIED SPEC SHEETS OF THE ENTIRE SYSTEM
FROM AN INDEPENDENT TESTTING AGENCY TO INSURE THAT
PLUMBING CODE REQUIREMENTS ARE BEING MEET. THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF HOME BUILDERS RESEARCH CENTER www.nahbrc.org/certif/plumbing.htm CLICK WATER SOFTENERS AND FIND OUT WHY.
FOR MORE INFORMATION darrell@jwsmfg.com I HAVE TECHNICAL INFORMATION AVAILABLE.
