Cascadian's I, Filter for Removing Iron and Manganese
I is for Iron and Manganese
Cascadian’s I, iron filter is found as a component of the ICS-SI and ICS-SIP filtration systems. Each of these systems has two filters, the S, and the I or IP. The most effective removal of iron and manganese from your water is accomplished with a two step process.
Treatment Step 1 - Remove the ugly colored stuff:
The first step to successful treatment is removal of oxidized iron and manganese. We know the minerals are oxidized because we can see them or at least we can see their color. This first step is accomplished with the S filter. The S is a high efficiency multimicron dept filter that is excellent at removing colored orange/red iron and black/brown manganese from your water.
Treatment Step 2 - Remove the clear sneaky stuff:
Once the colored particles are removed in step 1 the water is ready for step two of the the treatment process. The second step is to remove the minerals that are dissolved, they are clear. You can't see them in the water but they are there waiting to oxidize and turn colored once the water contacts air. This second step is accomplished with the I filter. The I filter contains special media that oxidizes and filters out the clear iron and manganese before it reaches the air and goes on to cause stains in your plumbing, sinks or anywhere your water goes.
The two of these filters are a knockout combination and together can remove up to 3 ppm of iron and manganese from your water.
What about the P?
When using the ICS-SIP filter the P, PolyHalt treatment adds additional protection just in case the iron filter let some of the clear iron through. The P bonds to the clear iron and manganese preventing it from oxidizing or turning colored. The P can take the SI from really good treatment to excellent treatment. Think of the P as adding insurance to the SI for clear iron and manganese. The P also adds ion bond softening and appliance protection to the treatment system.
Good to Know
We only offer iron removal for whole house filters since the specialty cartridges aren’t available for point-of-use or commercial sized systems.
