Regeneration of Zeolite
Regeneration is in NO way necessary for the provision of good filtration, only for effective ion exchange.
Zeolite absorbs ammounium ions and over time it will become saturated with these ions and will not be able to absorb any more. The process of regeneration removes absorbed ammounium ions and refreshed the Zeolite. *If you would like the Zeolite to continue to remove ammounium ions the filter needs to be opened once per year, a salt solution added into the filter, left over night and then back washed out. This is not compulsory.
How Often Does Zeolite Need to be Changed?
Filter Manufacturers have always recommended sand changes every 4-6 years. Zeolite is as hard as sand so it will last just as long.
