Welcome to Highbrow Water Filters!
Crystal Quest Smart Whole House Water Filters are engineered for maximum filtration and maximum performance with minimum maintenance.
Water flows through our SMART Multimedia, which includes 2 types of coconut shell Granulated Activated Carbons (Standard & Catalytic GAC) which will remove inorganic products such as herbicides, pesticides, petroleum and pharmaceutical by-products, and chlorine/chloramine with the GAC by-product of the four trihalomethanes.
Trichloromethane (chloroform) CHCl3Dibromochloromethane CHClBr2Bromodichloromethane CHCl2BrTribromomethane (bromoform) CHBr3
Crystal Quest Eagle Redox Alloy® 6500 & 9500, and ion exchange resin are infused with the GAC to reduce contaminants such as heavy metals, i.e. lead & mercury while extending the life of GAC drastically and make the bed of media bacteriostatic. Ceramic and Tourmaline balls are included to oxygenate and enhance the water alkalinity and achieve a balanced pH. The recommended drinking-water pH is 6.5-8.5
Water flows through a 20” sediment cartridge that removes sediment, silt, sand, and dirt.
Water flows through a 20" solid carbon cartridge for removing volatile organic carbon compounds (VOC's), & any remaining insecticides, pesticides and industrial solvents.

Homeowners who have hard water normally complain of scale buildup inside pipes, water heaters and appliances and, when hard water reacts with soap, it can form a sticky residue on surfaces. It is important to note that hard water is not a health concern. The only concern with hard water is the deterioration of plumbing, plumbing fixtures and appliances due to scale buildup. Also, the scale buildup inside a water heater will increase the power or gas required to heat the water.
The Traditional Softener
Water is softened by replacing hard ions like magnesium and calcium with softer sodium or potassium ions. This means that the magnesium and calcium ions are actually removed from the water. This is done by an ion exchange resin. Ion exchange happens when the hard water passes through a bed of beads or zeolite, which is a chemical mixture. Water softeners must be regenerated regularly with the use of the brine tank, renewing the medias ability to remove hardness from water. This regeneration is accomplished with a sodium or potassium chloride and water solution which can increase the salt content of your water slightly.
A traditional softener, while removing the calcium and magnesium, will prevent further limescale build up in your appliances and pipes, but will not remove existing buildup. Additionally, the water will have a somewhat slippery or slimy feel.
Maintenance of the traditional softener systems requires refilling the brine solution or backwash solution periodically with the sodium or potassium chloride salt. Potassium chloride is the healthier choice but is more expensive.
