ecoTAC™ Replacement Media
replacement salt-free scale prevention media for ecoTAC hard water conditioners
ecoTAC™ media is the salt-free scale prevention / hard water conditioning media used in all ecoTAC hard water conditioners. ecoTAC™ media employs Template Assisted Crystalization (TAC) technology which serve as a powerful catalyst for the formation of nano-crystals of calcium and magnesium carbonate that remain suspended in solution instead of forming hard mineral scale on surfaces. The nucleation sites on the TAC media attract calcium, magnesium, and bicarbonate ions. At these template sites, these building blocks of mineral scale combine to form microscopic (nanometer-sized) calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate crystals. However, instead of forming typical calcite crystals (normal mineral scale), the template surface guides the formation of a crystal structure that does not stick to surfaces. As the crystals grow, they break off and become suspended in the water stream and are carried away in a crystal form that is stable, and does not easily revert back to its dissolved form or stick to surfaces.
- environmentally-friendly -no water waste, no salt regeneration required
- does not remove beneficial minerals
- direct replacement for TAC media used in Watts Onflow systems and for Filtersorb SP3 media
ecoTAC™ is a direct replacement for TAC media used in Watts Onflow systems and for Filtersorb SP3 media used in Greenwave, Nelsen, and other nucleation assisted crystalization systems. Sold by the liter.
The presence of elevated levels of chlorine, iron, manganese, hydrogen sulfide, copper, and certain other contaminants can damage TAC media, reducing its effectiveness and shortening its life. While the media can handle the typical chlorine levels found in municipal water sources, to maximize media life, it is generally recommended that chlorinated city water be pre-filtered through activated carbon to remove free chlorine before the TAC system.
Hydrogen sulfide, polyphosphates and oils should be removed prior to ecoTAC™ treatment.
