This system removes heavy metals like iron, sulfur, and manganese from your water without using chemicals. Our most popular iron removal system comes with Katalox Light for heavy-duty iron removal. The cartridge's patented air injection iron filter technology creates a pocket of air to compress at the top, forcing the water to flow through and allowing for the iron to be oxidized out of the solution. The water travels over the innovative magnetized media, which attracts even more left-over iron particles that are then trapped within it. Removing all traces of rust, iron, dirt, bacteria, and other harmful contaminants from. The Air Injection Iron Filter Oxidation (AIO) technology oxidizes the iron, so it falls out of solution, giving you clean iron-free water.
The Fleck 2510 SXT AIO system removes up to 15 ppm iron, removes 15 ppm of hydrogen sulfide that causes rotten odors in your water, and removes up to 5 ppm manganese. This is a high-flow system that goes up to 12 GPM. NSF and FDA-approved components, including the filter media.

Initial Start-Up Tips:
Before you run water through the unit you will want to open the bypass valve only partially. Push and hold down the Regen button for 5 seconds and the unit will go into the regen cycle running water to drain. It is programmed for that cycle to run for 14 minutes but you can unplug the power and it will stay in that position until you plug the power back in, Let the water run into the tank until all the air is evacuated from the tank. You can tell by watching the drain line and when it runs solid water with no air, that's a good indication that all the air is evacuated from the tank.
When all air is evacuated from the tank you can open the bypass all the way. Leave the unit unplugged and let it run in the backwash position (to drain) for 45 minutes. Plug the power back in, (display should still say BW, push and release the regen button until the display says BD which is the air draw section, push and release the regen button and the display will go past the BD (air Draw) cycle and go to the RR position for rapid rinse and unplug the unit again for the recommended 15 min Rinse , plug the unit back in again. and push and release the regen button and it will go into the service position.
Reset the time of day and initiate a regen cycle and let it run the complete regeneration cycles (3 cycles) and it will put itself back to the service position which is where it will always be in its normal operation.
