ADOX™ MEDIA FOR IRON, slight HYDROGEN SULFIDE & MANGANESE REMOVAL. ADOX™ is used for removing iron, hydrogen sulfide, and manganese from water supplies. It is a media that utilizes an oxidation-reduction reaction and filtration process similar to Greensand, but at a much higher level of performance. ADOX™ contains 80% manganese dioxide in an extremely unique cluster format for enhanced performance and maximized capacity. ADOX™ out performs outperforms most other manganese dioxide based medias due to the purity of its particles, superior oxidation/filtration capacity, and durability.
Iron is one of the most common elements found in nature, and most ground waters contain a measurable amount of iron. Iron stains bathtubs, toilets, sinks, driveways and it will even stain the side of your house in sufficient concentrations. The ADOX™ backwashing filter is a non-chemical oxidizing media to reduce iron. ADOX is 75% to 85% manganese dioxide. Companies have different names for it, but if the name ends in "X", it's the same stuff: Filox, Pyrolox, Catalox, Oxylox, ADOX - It's all the same.
