Fine Mesh resin is used for homes with slightly higher iron levels, that a regular water softener can’t handle. Fine Mesh resin is a good option when you have more than 3 parts of iron in the water. Fine Mesh resin can remove up to 8 parts of iron under the right conditions, but up to 5 parts of iron is more likely. Fine Mesh resin does need to be regenerated more often than regular softener resin.
When using Fine Mesh resin, be sure to use a Fine Mesh Distributor tube inside of the tank. Using a standard resin distributor tube will result in resin passing through the tube and entering the home or businesses plumbing, appliances, and fixtures. Use part number BRT1050-54-FR (Fine Mesh Dist. Tube).
