The IN & OUT carbon tank system
is a simple yet effective means of improving the quality of drinking water in any home that is supplied by a municipal water system ( "city" water ) treated with chlorine.
The system has no moving parts and includes of a rust proof, poly-glass tank which contains a special, high quality activated carbon filter media bed and a distributor head that directs the flow of water through the media bed. The special carbon filter media has been particle sized to provide the most efficient reduction of taste and odor caused by chlorine.
After 2 - 5 years you will need to replace the carbon and gravel under bedding.

Tank dimensions 12" x 52", comes with distributor pipe, In & Out head with top distributor, 2 cu.ft. Carbon, Gravel, and Funnel ( to help pour the gravel, then carbon into the tank ).
*** INSTALLATION ***
* You want to follow the "Replace Media" directions ( steps 6 - 10 ):
And at STEP 8, since the IN & OUT head ( MD1400 ) is not a "Valve", you'll want to connect the head in reverse after putting the gravel and carbon into the tank.
This is to "backwash" the Carbon and Gravel "dust" from the media before putting into "Service" to the house.
Connect your water source to the side of the Head marked "UPFLOW INLET",
slowly turn the water on, and let it flow in reverse ( flow in then down through the carbon via the "Upflow Inlet" side and flowing out the "DOWNFLOW INLET" )
for about 10 minutes ( until water turns from BLACK to CLEAR ).
Then you are ready to connect in the
IN will be the DOWNFLOW INLET.
OUT will be the UPFLOW INLET.
You can connect and run the water with or without the included BY PASS ( V3006 ) option.
Once you have "washed" the carbon and gravel media,
you are ready to attach your piping to your water lines.
And this unit should be installed BEFORE the Water Softener.
