Water Treatment Backwashing Filter Systems: These systems are designed to filter cloudy water, sediment, suspended solids, chlorine, chloramines, chemicals, well water, heavy metals, iron, any water problem you have for your home's water supply.
Backwashing is cleaning the filter and media by reversing the flow of water to remove any solid debris, build-up, and contaminants. Backwashing is a form of preventive maintenance so the filter media could be reused. In water treatment plants, backwashing may be an automated procedure that is run by local programmable logic controllers (PLCs). The backwash water filter cycle in the water filter system runs after a set time interval, or if the turbidity is greater than the limit in the treatment guidelines.
