The SuperDisc filter is available as a freestanding unit with filter discs contained in a stainless steel tank and a version for installation in a concrete basin.

Chlorine Dioxide Generators

Chlorine Dioxide Generators

Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) is most commonly used for drinking water treatment to oxidize reduced iron, manganese, sulfur compounds, and certain odor-causing organic substances in raw water. Chlorine dioxide is often used as a preoxidant because, unlike chlorine, it will not chlorinate organic compounds and, therefore, will not react with organic matter in the water to form trihalomethanes (THMs) or other byproducts.
