This is Growonix' biggest scrubber with a flow rate of 7 GPM/420 GPH! Different than a reverse osmosis system, this easy-to-use, fully assembled water filter hooks right to your garden hose and scrubs out the dirt and disinfectants.
The XL Scrubber has proved to be the perfect solution in a multitude of conditions. Great for whole house filtration, farms, restaurants, industrial use and more! The XL Scrubber with it’s its ultra low pressure drop and 34,000 gallon capacity is great for filtering wells too! A pair of stainless steel liquid filled pressure gauges inform you when it’s time to change filters.
The XL Scrubber can be upgraded with a UV filter to remove 99.9% of micro-organisms. This is especially important for well water, as wells often are suffused with bacteria and other harmful microbes. Treats up to 34,000 gallons before requiring a filter change.
Nothing has been overlooked when Growonix created the Scrubber Line. They use the finest American-made components, and build them by hand right here in the United States. GrowoniX offers a full line of scrubbers to suit gardens of every size.
Optional KDF85 Carbon Filter Upgrade
For chlorine and chloramines reduction for city water. Also for well water for iron, hydrogen sulfide, and heavy metals reduction. Will last TWO TIMES AS LONG as the standard green carbon filter. Prolongs the life of the membranes. Reduces chloramines, chlorine, iron, sulfur and heavy metals. Bacteriostatic qualities do not allow microbes to breed in filter.

GrowoniX 420 GPH XL Scrubber Dechlorinator and Sediment Filter System Questions & Answers
WATER TEMPERATURE FAQ's
How does water temperature effect flow rates through RO filters?
Between 77° and 50° water system production declines by 50%, as cold water is more dense, more viscous, and more difficult to move through the membranes.
What can be done to combat the effects of cold water on RO membranes?
Increasing the water pressure with a booster pump. Increasing the feed water temperature, which some people do by mixing warm and cold water from a diverter valve.
SYSTEM RATIOS FAQ's
Does the system ratio (waste ratio) change over time?
System ratios can change over time if the flow restrictor starts clogging due to hard feed water conditions.
Does the system ratio change with water temperature?
System ratios (waste ratios) can drift with cold feed water. Water travels the path of least resistance — the drain line! It’s important to check the system ratio during the winter months and adjust if necessary.
How can the system ratio be adjusted?
System ratios can be tuned with a ball valve or Flow Box. Never go lower than the system was intended for.
WATER PRESSURE FAQ's
How much water pressure is needed to run an RO system properly?
RO membranes require 40 psi of incoming pressure to produce even a drop of water except our GXM200-HF which requires only 20PSI. The only membrane on the planet that can do this.
What’s the maximum feed water pressure that an RO system should run on?
Incoming feed water pressure on all water filters, always and everywhere, should be no more than 80psi. Plastic filter housings cannot handle more pressure.
WELL WATER FAQ's
Can all GrowoniX water filters be used with well water?
Well water is generally too dirty for small RO membranes (100GPD through 400GPD systems). The large 4” membranes of the bigger systems (600GPD and larger) are recommended for well water treatment, unless the water demand is really low.
Are there any special filters needed to treat well water?
KDF85/ catalytic carbon filters are a must for well water treatment. This premium catalytic carbon filter with a bed of KDF85 media can reduce iron, hydrogen sulfide, heavy metals, and bacteria—all things that wreak havoc on RO components—especially membranes. Other consideration for special filters can only be deduced with a laboratory water analysis.
Does GrowoniX help with well water analysis?
They do. Just send Growonix your water analysis and they will look at it for free. If you don’t have a recent analysis, you can either use a local water lab, or purchase a test kit through GrowoniX send it off to our partner lab.
