How it Works
The GreenWave 2.0 utilizes Filtersorb SP 3 Media by Watch Water. The Filtersorb SP 3 Media utilizes a process called Nucleation Assisted Crystallization or “NAC” for short.
As the hard water passes through a pressure vessel (in the upflow configuration) the calcium bicarbonate Ca(HCO3)2 is transformed into the aragonite form of calcium carbonate CaCO3 crystals. These crystals are formed through decomposition and crystallization process, forming very stable harmless crystals.
The following equation describes the reaction that occurs inside the pressure vessel when flow over grains of nucleation.
Ca(HCO3)2 → CaCO3 + CO2 + H2O.
Most companies do not tell you how much Anti-Scale Media is inside their tanks. However, if you check, you will find out that it is generally about half of what we use. Ours is engineered to be long-lasting and more efficient, typically lasting 4-6 years.
NOTE: If you are on a private well, you will need to pre-treat and filter out iron, manganese, hydrogen sulfide, copper or other contaminants that could foul the media.
The GreenWave System is made in the USA. The media is derived from German Technology.
