Water treatment?

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a system that I can use for filtering my city water for mashing (130 gal ferm tanks) . I came across this info and was wondering if anyone had any input on how well it would work. I have a small RO system for proofing.

GAC (Granulated Activated Carbon) and KDF. KDF is a copper-zinc alloy developed by KDF Fluid Treatment Inc. (Three Rivers, Michigan). The alloy can reduce heavy metal ions such as copper, lead, mercury, and chromium to metal atoms, which electroplate onto the medium and are thus removed from the water. Beneficial brewing ions, such as calcium and magnesium, are not affected. The zinc in KDF will also reduce dissolved chlorine gas to chloride ions, relieving the GAC of some of the chlorine reduction burden. I have seen no data concerning KDF’s ability to reduce chloramines, but, of course, the GAC will take care of that.
