The use of additional oxidizing agents (oxygen, chlorine, ozone, hydrogen peroxide, potassium permanganate, etc.) is recommended. Oxidizers will enhance the performance of Filox™. They oxidize the media, which enables Filox™ to perform quicker and keep cleaner. It is always a safe practice to install an oxidation method upstream (in front) of the Filox™ bed. Do not exceed 4 ppm free chlorine chlorine in the feed water stream or bed damage may occur.
Testing For ORP - Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) can be the most important factor to take into consideration in certain waters. Highly reducing waters may cause premature exhaustion or even destruction of the Filox™ bed. Precautions can be taken prior to installation that can prevent ORP problems. Use one of the screening tests and follow the instructions below if the subject water has reducing properties that will require additional oxidants
