The Matrixx™ automatic backwashing carbon filter system is specifically designed for applications to remove chlorine, chemicals, and pesticides, or for de-chlorination of water supplies, such as for foodservice, RO pre-treatment, and whole-house filtration.
The Matrixx™ Backwashing Carbon Filter is a fully automatic backwashing carbon filtration system. It uses all NSF and FDA approved components, including the granular activated carbon (GAC). The electronic computer control cleans the GAC of accumulated contaminants while delivering clean, clear, fresh, chlorine-free water throughout your home. It also reduces chemicals, trihalomethanes (THM's), pesticides, heavy metals, tastes, and odors. The electronic control center is easy to set and once set, you never have to set it again.
There are several companies selling products on the internet for outlandish prices who claim that their systems effectively remove more contaminants from the water than anyone else - that is completely untrue! A good backwashing carbon filter with the right blend of carbon is as good as it gets!

You'll notice the difference in your skin and hair after just one bath or shower
Communicates with your Smartphone via Bluetooth
Simply set the time of day, time of regeneration, and backwash frequency
Uses 9 Volt battery, so that if power goes out during regeneration, it automatically returns to service so as not to continually waste water to the drain
Monitors remaining battery life
Fully programmable cycles
Can be “precision tuned”
The electronic control center is easy to set and once set, you never have to set it again (except for DST). The Matrixx™ system incorporates an automatic backwash which removes accumulated contaminants and automatically backwashes the filtration media. This eliminates pressure drop and keeps the media in top condition.
Electronic controller has only one internal moving part - simple to set. No complicated programs.
Includes built-in bypass valve
12 Volt Electrical system uses less than $3.00 electricity per year and offers no danger of electrical shock
Battery backup keeps the memory during power outages
Chrome tank protector always looks like new and wipes clean easily. Looks just as good in 20 years! (Up to 20 GPM)
A properly sized backwashing carbon filter from any company that uses NSF and FDA approved carbons and components will work just as well as one twice the price. Anyone can build as good a carbon filter as US Water does, but many don't, and some of the ones that do, charge 2 or 3 times what US Water does. You can pay less - and you will get less, and you can pay more, but you won't get more or better filtration than with a Matrixx™ Backwashing Carbon Filter!
Who would be a candidate for a Matrixx™ Backwashing Carbon Filter? People who live in areas where the hardness is not a factor and simply want to remove the chlorine and chemicals from the water supply, or someone who already has softened water and wants to remove the chlorine and chemicals. Granular activated carbon is the most effective way to dechlorinate water.
Some water filtration systems require you to purchase separate water filters for each faucet - shower water filters, faucet filters, refrigerator filters, etc. The Matrixx™ Backwashing Carbon Filter is a "whole-house" water filter system which delivers clean water throughout your entire home.
Water Just the Way Nature Intended It
Reduces chlorine & other contaminants
Chlorine is an oxidizer which is commonly used to reduce organic matter and/or disinfect water by municipalities
Chlorine is objectionable for bathing and drinking in concentrations as low as .5 PPM - A swimming pool may be 2.0 to 3.0 PPM
Once the water has been disinfected and arrives in your home, there is no further need for the chemical, and prolonged contact can be detrimental, according to many experts
The EPA states that chlorine combines with organics in the water to form THM's (trihalomethanes) which are known carcinogens
Not sure what size filter you need? Bigger is usually better but remember, a system should be sized according to flow rate that is available for backwashing. A system must be backwashed at the specified flow rate to ensure it is flushed properly.
