AQ-4040 AQUARIUM FILTER SYSTEM
The AQ-4040 is a step up from the AQ-4030. This complete water purification system has four stages of filtration. The 1-micron filter cartridge protects the reverse osmosis membrane and improves water quality by removing sediment, insoluble iron and other solids that can foul the RO membrane. The 5-micron activated carbon block adds a second layer of protection by removing chlorine, chloramine and organic chemicals. The thin film composite (TFC) reverse osmosis membrane removes algae promoting phosphates and silicates along with nitrates. After passing through the RO filtration unit the water flows through a mixed-bed deionization cartridge. This special blend of ion-exchange resins scavenges any traces of nitrate, ammonia, phosphate, silicate and heavy metals like copper and lead. Your salt mix will dissolve clearer and have a more stable pH when you use the AQ-4040 to make your water. If you’re keeping soft-water fish like angels, cardinals, or South American cichlids, you’ll have an easier time keeping the water soft and pH low with the AQ-4040. This filtration system will remove water hardness and alkalinity, making it easier to create the soft acidic water aquatic plants and acid-loving fish need to thrive. Replacement 5-micron sediment filters, 5-micron activated carbon pre-filters and TFC reverse osmosis membranes and deionization resin cartridges are available.
