Will the Green Fusion need to be serviced?
No maintenance is required, except for the replenishment of salt or potassium (both work the same as potassium is just a salt substitute) in the brine tank. This usually needs replenishment every 2-3 months.
How much salt do I add?
Salt and potassium come in 40-pound bags from most hardware stores. One bag at a time is all that’s needed.
How often will I need to add salt?
Generally, a family of 4 people will go through a 40-pound bag of salt every two months.
How often will the system regenerate/backwash?
This is based on water use and the size unit you get. Typically, it backwashes once every two weeks.
What are the dimensions of the Green Fusion?
1.0 cubic foot system is 9-inches wide by 55-inches tall.
1.5 cubic foot system is 11-inches wide by 61-inches tall.
The brine tanks come in different sizes, based on space and how much salt storage you’d like to have. Brine tanks come in 11”X11”X 33”, 14”X14”X33, 15”X17”X33, and 18” round x 33”.
What is the gallon per minute flow rate?
1.0 Cubic foot system is 12gpm. The 1.5 cubic foot system is 15gpm.
Are there any performance differences between the potassium and salt?
No. However, some homeowners reported that salt produces a more slippery feel in the water versus potassium.
Is the resin crosslinked type?
All resin is crosslinked. Crosslinked refers to the strength of the bead and how well it resists chlorine damage. The higher the percentage, the better the resin. The Green Fusion uses 10% crosslinked resin.
Is the carbon catalytic media?
The carbon in the green fusion is coconut shell granular activated carbon. Coconut shell carbon is known to remove more volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) than other types of carbon. In addition to carbon, the Green Fusion uses KDF media which improves the performance of the carbon. There is a process to catalyze carbon for removal of iron, but that carbon is considerably more expensive, and usually not necessary for the city of Tucson water supply.
Is the frequency of regeneration based on water hardness programmed?
Yes, frequency is based on the water hardness programmed, the size of the unit, and the varying amount of water used day to day. The Green Fusion learns about the water use pattern and seeks out the most efficient regeneration schedule.
