The HALO 5 Water Filter Uses Five Stages to Clean Water
The HALO 5 water filter fights scale, makes water taste great, and protects the home. But, how does it do this? The HALO 5 completely purifies water to remove harmful chemicals and particles through five different stages.
General water supply is treated with chlorine and bleach for disinfection. However, excess chlorine—and chlorine in general—have byproducts that affect the taste and drinkability of household water. Because of this, many homeowners use some sort of water filtration device; whether it’s a pitcher or a gadget that attaches to the sink itself. The HALO 5
water filter is different because it treats the entire home’s water supply. So, no matter where you need water—whether in the kitchen, the bathroom, or laundry room—you can confidently use it.
The HALO 5 water filter uses five distinct stages for ultimate filtration.
Stage 1: Acid-washed granular activated carbon media filter
The granular activated carbon media filter, also known as the GAC filter, is excellent at removing particles like chlorine, chloramines, gasses, dyes, fuels, heavy metals, man-made pollutants, disinfectants, pesticides, sodium hypochlorite, odors and volatile organic contaminants.
Stage 2: Centaur® High Activity Carbon filter
filter reduces free chlorine from the water supply. Free chlorine is excess chlorine that has not yet been used to sanitize water. In doing so, water tastes much better.
Stage 3: Filter-AG Plus®
In this stage, ultra-fine particles are removed from the water supply, clarifying water. Sometimes, homeowners complain of smoky or cloudy water and think that it is dirty. That smokiness is caused by fine sediment floating in the water. The Filter-AG Plus®
removes those particles.
Stage 4: High density garnet filter
In the final filtration stage, water passes through a high-density garnet filter. This is a very durable filter that works well in combination with the other four filters.
Stage 5: HALO ION Inline Water Conditioner
The HALO ION water conditioner intelligently treats water by separating calcium and magnesium particles evenly through the water. This prevents scale and corrosion while retaining the essential minerals that give water its taste. It is the final step in the HALO 5 water filter system.
In addition, the HALO 5 water filter backwashes once a week. The programmed backwash uses 30 percent less water than other whole house water filters. The backwash lasts 10 minutes and rinses the media bed in order to prime it again for another week of high efficiency filtration.
