Green Water carries a variety of water treatment media, resin, carbon and underbedding. There are numerous manufacturers of Cation Exchange, Anion Exchange and DI Resin, including Sybron, Bayer, Dow, Rohm & Haas, Purolite, Indion, Thermax, ResinTech, Nelsen and others. We do not attempt to carry every brand. All resin is interchangeable and basically there are three types of cation exchange resin: (1) Fine Mesh Resin; (2) 8% cross-linked resin; and 10% cross-linked resin. Unless you know for certain that your softener uses fine mesh resin and has the proper distributor system, you should use the 8% or 10% cross-linked resin. What is the difference? In a nutshell, the 10% cross-lined resin will generally last about twice as long as the 8% cross-linked resin. It costs a little more, but lasts a lot longer. At Green Water, most of our water softeners use 10% cross-linked resin and we are very partial to it because it lasts longer and works better.
We also carry a variety of other resins, such as Mixed Bed DI Resin, Tannin and Nitrate Selective Resin and others. Additionally, we use coconut shell based carbons which are of the highest quality and consistency we have found and finally, we carry a variety of medias which address iron, sulfur, manganese and arsenic.
