I would like to size a MangOX filter but need to know if the system needs an air charger.
Some info about my system:
7.5 GPM flow rate
I have an upstream chlorinator and dwell tank (15 ppm free chlorine on input, much less but unknown at output). I have a softener downstream that cannot cope with the iron. When is an air charger justified?
Air chargers are useful when you need to oxidize particulate in your water before filtration, such as when filtering iron or odors. They are generally preferred by people who do not want to use chlorine or other chemicals to oxidize the contaminants in their water. Since you have a chlorinator and contact tank upstream, no air charger or optional chlorine side tank is needed, nor recommended.Since you have 7.5 GPM flow rate, we recommend a 1.0 CF model. You can get a 1.5 CF model if you have a large size pressure tank (80 gallons) with a 25 or 35 gallon drawdown, but the 1.0 CF 9" x 48" tank will work well for a system supporting 4 people.
