The adsorption activity of the Carbon media relies on a good Carbon/water contact, and therefore moderately active water flow will increase the efficiency.


Strong water flow will reduce the contact time and interfere with the adhesion process of the organic molecules to the Carbon.


Strong water flow may also cause the granules to grind against each other, releasing Carbon material to water.


For best results:

  • Remove any fines, by rinsing Carbon under tap water.
  • Due to air trapped in the pores Carbon will float, and therefore it is recommended to soak the Carbon in RO water until all of the air has been released.
  • Place the Carbon in a location with an active flow of 1000-1500 lph (250-400 gph) per 50 gr carbon.
  • Replace Carbon every 1.5 – 2 months. Note: When Carbon becomes saturated with organics, it may start adsorbing some of the trace elements from the seawater.
