Simple, low-cost non-backwashing whole house filters to remove chlorine, chloramines and chemicals from city water.

We offer these non-backwashing whole house carbon filters with either regular coconut shell carbon or with Centaur catalytic carbon.

Centaur is a specially processed carbon that is designed to reduce chloramines. If your municipality disinfects its water with chloramines, this is the choice for you.

If your city disinfects with chlorine, our standard coconut shell carbon filter is a more appropriate solution.

We cannot be responsible for the improper installation of water systems. A plumber could be needed for this type of installation if used with a reverse osmosis system.

hey use no electricity and need no drain connection. Since there's nothing to wear out, they're virtually trouble free. They use exactly the same granular filter media — regular granular activated carbon, coconut shell carbon, or specialty Centaur catalytic carbon — that are used in our more expensive whole house backwashing filters.

The main requirement for use of these whole house non-backwashing tank-style filters is clean water. If the objective is to remove chlorine or chloramines from clean city water, a non-backwashing In/Out filter does an exceptional job. Unless the inlet water is very clean and free of rust and other sediment, we recommend that a cartridge-style sediment filterbe installed in front of the filter tank.

Most tank-style filters rely on an automatic control head to backwash the filter media in the tank. We offer a complete selection of conventional backwashing filters. For certain limited applications, however, simple "In/Out” tank-style water filters without a power control head work great. Tank-style non-backwashing filters are inexpensive, easy to set up, and easy to maintain.

The In/Out whole house carbon filters are simple, efficient devices. They cost considerably less than their backwashing counterparts and require less maintenance. They save water — no backwashing — and they do not require electricity. There's no power head to need maintenance or programming.

With In/Out units, water simply enters the tank, passes through the media bed, and flows out. There is no cleaning process. Non-backwashing tank filters are arranged so that the water being treated flows upward through the tank, entering at the bottom and exiting at the top. This reversed flow lifts the bed, keeps it fresh, and minimizes channeling. A special straining basket at the top of the tank prevents media loss.

The filters listed below are equipped with Fleck In/Out head and elbow adapters as standard equipment. An optional Clack bypass valve is offered. Tanks are the exceptional Enpress Vortech. The Vortech tank assures an easier installation, without gravel, and superior upflow performance. The gravel-free design makes changing the filter medium considerably easier than with conventional gravel-bedded tanks. (The estimated re-bed interval is every three years or so, depending on usage and chlorine/chloramine content of your water.)

Our basic upflow filters give you more media per tank size than backwashing filters. Backwashing units need a considerable "freeboard” space at the top of the tank to allow for bed expansion during backwashing. Our upflow units are filled almost to the top with filter medium, since no backwash space is required. Depending on the size of the unit, they have 1/4 to 1/2 cubic feet more carbon than backwashing filters of the same tank size. This increases both the lifespan and the effectiveness of the filter
