Garnet #8 is a high hardness, high density granular water softener media. It is normally used as the lower (final) filtration layer of a multi-bed down flow filtration system. Called Multi-Media or Mixed Media filtration, the high density small grain size of Garnet solves a major filtration problem. It's similar to gravel underbedding in water softeners.
- High specific gravity allows unique filter designs. In combination with other filter media both higher flow rates, higher loading, and better filtration.
- High hardness reduces attrition and provides for years of reliable service.
- An excellent support bed for other high density media.
