Backwashing Carbon Tanks for the Whole House:

A backwashing carbon tank can be used on both city water and well water. Carbon tanks are great at removing taste, smells, odors, chemicals, chlorine, organics and many other impurities. These backwashing carbon filters normally come with only the very finest quality activated carbon available, gravel under-bedding, state of the art "set it and forget it" digital control valve, and are great on city water applications that have high levels of chlorine and other chemicals. Remember that we also can provide any sort of carbon you like including KDF, Coconut Carbon, impregnated carbon etc.

A carbon tank can also be great on well water that is being chlorinated for the removal of sulfur odor on a well that does not contain any iron. Be sure to ask one of our expert techs about your situation to be sure a carbon tank is the correct water filter for you. They give great advice and are never allowed to ask you to buy anything. And they know everything about how to choose the correct water filtration system. For well water with iron, you should look at our Terminox® ISM Filters.

Backwashing Carbon Tank, state of the art, "set it and forget it" provides years and years of top quality water for you and your family.

Non electric carbon tanks come with a simple easy to control valve, gravel under-bedding, activated carbon, and a mineral tank.


This carbon tank is manually operated and requires no electricity. It will filter the water the same as the digital carbon tanks and periodically, you would go back and move a lever to backwash the unit. This is an ideal activated carbon filter for those city water or well water applications where there is just no convenient way to plug the unit in, such as cabins or remote locations.

Whether you use the all digital premium backwashing carbon tanks, the non-electric carbon tank or the whole house carbon replaceable water filters, they will all do the same thing, which is to remove chlorine, smells, tastes odors and other chemicals. The big difference is the amount of maintenance required. The carbon tank, when sized properly will not need any maintenance for five to seven years on average. They are "set it and forget it" systems. After five to seven years, you replace the activated carbon, and it will last another five to seven years. The same is true for the non-electric carbon tanks except you would need to manually backwash the carbon once a week on average. The carbon water filters that you place on the water line have replacement water filters inside that would need to be changed once a year on average. Please don't hesitate to contact us by phone, e-mail or on the "Live Chat" to speak with one of our industry leading expert technicians about any of your water filtration needs. They are friendly and helpful and will never ask you to buy anything or pressure you in any way.

All units sold upon approval. Prices and shipping subject to change. Budget Water® not responsible for source water changes or misapplications. Some assembly required.

For city water with Chloramines or Hydrogen sulfide we recommend you upgrade the activated carbon to Centaur GAC carbon. Additional cost is $175.87. Just give us a call.

WARNING: When it comes to treatment equipment you should NEVER do business with ANY company who does not have the same certifications as we do. It is just plain crazy. There are so many "Fly by night" companies out there that it should be the very FIRST rule in your decision making process. It is your first, and sometimes ONLY, line of defense. Just look at our home page to see our many appropriate certifications. You will find them all in the top third of the page.
