  • SKU6001


  • Tannins are organic matter, sometimes found in water that give a light yellow to a dark tea color. This effect is caused by a variety of humic and fulvic organic acids, which are typically found in waters influenced by rainfall on hillsides, running off through natural soil and peats into streams, rivers and lakes. Tannins have also been found in deep groundwater wells.

  • Capacity: 2100 ppm per cubic foot with a tannin selective anion resin regenerated with 10 pounds of salt.

  • Formula: 2100 divided by the ppm (parts per million) of tannins in your water equals the number of gallons per cubic foot of tannin resin.

  • Example: 2100 divided by 10 ppm equals 210 gallons of water treated with one cubic foot of tannin resin.

  • Note: Most people use an average of 75 gallons of water per day. 

  • Important: Water hardness of 10 grains or higher must be softened first and all iron must be removed ahead of a tannin removal system.
