In most cases our standard Zeoprep Whole House Iron Water Filter will be all you need if you’re experiencing Ferric or Ferrous iron staining in your home. But in a few cases the need for a Filox Iron Filter may be required, particularly if your iron level is near or exceeds 10 PPM or have a PH reading lower than 6.8 or have manganese higher than 7.8. In these rare cases you should consider using a filter that uses Filox as the media. Filox is designed to handle these issues better than Zeoprep.

The main difference between Zeoprep and Filox is, Filox has some oxidizing properties, will handle a wider range of PH values, and will handle manganese better, draw back being there is a heavier backwash rate needed. Zeoprep only filters out particles, sediment, oxidized iron etc. Our Filox Iron Filter uses a Fleck 2510SXT Electronic control, which has the ability to allow for longer back-washing where our standard Iron Water Filter uses a Fleck 5600SXT control.

The differences between our 5600SXT timer and out 2500SXT timer is on the 5600 we recommend using only Medias that need a maximum backwash rate of 7 gpm. The 2510 can backwash medias needing up to 17 gpm backwash. The 2510 has a higher flow rate to service than the 5600, that’s why we use the 2510 on this Iron Water Filter. This state of the art 2510SXT controller oversees the backwash that rejuvenates and resettles the media bed and adds oxygen to the tank for iron oxidization. This is an excellent alternative to other Iron Water Filters that require maintenance. Our Filox Iron Filter is maintenance free, this means no chemicals or cleaning. It simply stores the iron in the media bed and oxidizes the stored iron every three days at about 2 AM using oxygen that it draws in from the air around it.

Why Buy a Sterling Water Conditioner?

No Salt is Needed:
Salt for an average household, costs $200 per year. Salt based water softeners are expensive, time consuming, and overall, VERY inconvenient.
