Thinking of Buying a Non-Backwashing Water Filtration System? Think Again.
MYTH: Backwashing (or self-cleaning) water filtration systems waste water. FACT: Backwash water is filtered and can easily be used to water plants or side yards, or simply run off into a pool, pond, or even for livestock or horses. Zero waste! Most importantly, backwashing is required to reduce and eliminate bacteria, increase your filter’s life and reduce your cost of replacement, and ensure 99%+ effectiveness of removing toxins for the filter’s life. According to studies (see below), non-backwashing systems are less than 36% effective at removing toxins.
