  • Small size
    • 20 times smaller than typical backwashing filter systems
    • Does not take up valuable floor space - system hangs on the wall
  • No power required
  • Produces no waste water
    • No backwash or regeneration cycles
    • Save 10,000± gallons of wastewater per year
  • Simple annual maintenance
    • Annual filter change
    • Includes drain on filter housing for clean no spill easy filter changes

Other Products to consider:

To add treatment for hardness, iron and more consider the ICS-SP.

To add treatment for hardness, iron, taste & odor (including chlorine) and more consider the ICS-STP. The ICS-STP is a compact double filter system and adds a high capacity taste & odor filter to the ICS-SP.

Notes for all ICS systems:

  • If Raw Water Parameter Condition for Operation = “NA” the systems will not affect and is not affected by concentrations of that parameter typically found in drinking water
  • If Raw Water Parameter Condition for Operation = “None Allowed” Remove through adequate pre-treatment
  • If Raw Water Parameter Condition for Operation = “Not for extreme levels” The cartridge useful life may be shortened and require more frequent replacement.
  • Extreme levels of any parameter may shorten useful cartridge life
  • Stated “Max Capacity” may be reduced by overall raw water chemistry

Complete water treatment with the ICS-S5 is a simple single-step process.

Water passes through a high capacity, high efficiency multimicron sediment filter to reduce visible sediment and particles. This filter a specially designed high sediment holding capacity for long life with lower pressure drop and is not susceptible to microbiological growth.
