CRYSTAL QUEST® CQ-IGS is formulated from a glauconite green sand which is capable of reducing iron, manganese and hydrogen sulfide from water through oxidation and filtration. Soluble iron and manganese are oxidized and precipitated by contact with higher oxides of manganese on the CQ-IGS granules. The hydrogen sulfide is reduced by oxidation to an insoluble sulfur precipitate. Precipitates are then filtered and removed by backwashing. It is required to vigorously backwash the bed when it is placed in service and before its oxidation capacity is totally exhausted. Operating the bed after oxidation capacity is exhausted will reduce its service life and may cause staining.

Great stuff - as far as I can tell, it's the only greensand solution that doesn't require permanganate regeneration. Backwashing is sufficient for the life of the media (but I might try and extend it). Great job, Crystal Quest. Also, it was shipped and arrived quickly - less than a week - not bad for a 70 lb package.
