Baleen Filters Turbo Ion Exchange Pre-Filter

Fill your pool or spa with pure bottle quality water that ends hard water problems and removes damaging metals from the water supply. Pre-filtered water is more easy to balance. The water will be smoother and softer as a result of less contaminants and chemicals. Results are often seen and felt immediately.

It is specifically designed to remove damaging metals from any water supply. Protect any pool or spa from unsightly brown, green, and gray stains caused by metals like iron and copper. It traps metals before they reach your pool. It chemically reacts with metals to physically trap them, effectively remove them permanently.

End hard water. Hard water is tough on pools and spas. Scale on walls, white calcium marks on jets or fixtures, and limescale build up in the filter are advanced signs of hard water decay. Interior parts are generally damaged first, especially the heater and sanitation systems. Eventually limescale becomes present in the water in the form of "calcium flakes".

The Ion Exchange Resin removes unwanted calcium and magnesium replacing it with soft sodium producing higher quality pre-softened water. It is even safe and effective, even on tough waters found in problem wells.

Features:

  • Effective for up to 8,000 gallons of water
  • Stops hard water problems
  • Prevents equipment damage and surface staining from hard water and metals entering your pool or spa from your water source
  • Removes calcium, scale, magnesium, iron, lead, copper and other heavy metals including chloramines, hydrogen sulfide and many other harmful contaminants
  • Prevents floating flakes, unsightly stains, and nasty smells
  • Higher quality fill water makes water feel more natural, soft and pure
  • Universal fitting connects to any standard hose fixtures
  • Perfect for pools, spas, spot-free car washes, gardening, aquariums, decorative ponds, camping, RV'ing and well users

Directions for use:

  • Screw filter onto any standard garden hose fitting. Turn on the water and flush out any loose debris for 25 seconds. Then begin the filling process. The slower the fill, the more effective the process. 
  • Once activated, this will be fully effective for up to 2 years or up to 8,000 gallons of water. To retain effectiveness refresh the filter by adding a saline solution (diluted salt water) into the cartridge, ensuring the water-tight end caps are replaced.

Note:

  • High sediment water can shorten the filter life. If water flow becomes restricted, replace the filter.

Works on first use but not more

I have been using this filter for a while now. It does a good job on the first use. The second time I used it the iron was not completely cleared out of the water. By the third time it was not working at all. I am filling a 260 gal hot tub so according to their advertisement I should be able to fill the tub 20 or more times. Sadly it does not work more that once or twice. At the same time the price is about half of other brands and I only use it every three months. Cost wise it is still the best deal for me.

Does not last

I use well water that has dissolved iron in it to fill my hot tub. When I add chlorine the water turns red/brown. The filter did a real good job of correcting the problem the first time I used it and the second time. By the third time it stopped working. My hot tub only uses 260 gallons so I only used a total of 520. The filter is suppose to work for up to 8000 gallons and two years. I gave it 3 stars because it is still the most cost effective way to eliminate the iron even if I have to purchase it more often.
