Dead Zones Graphic


Ideally, every bit of a media bed will be used to its fullest, providing optimum flow-thru and maximum treatment. But sometimes this doesn't happen and the result is dead zones in the media bed. To help you out, we've created the above diagram. It shows the areas that dead zones most commonly appear in a media bed (Zones A – D) and lists the most likely causes. So the next time you are sizing a water treatment system, consider these causes, and then you too can stay away from... The DEAD ZONES!
