Chloramine whole house filter

I have fairly good city water but it contains chloramine.
So I have been on a quest to find a chloramine whole house filter.
After many hours searching the net, I've come to the conclusion that the only way to get chloramine out for a whole house, is to use centaur carbon.
I have few questions regarding what to buy.

Tank:
Mineral, polyglass, fiberglass, stainless steel or it doesn't matter
I've found a system called vortech by enpress which seems like a good idea but didn't find any talk about it on the net.
Is it really better than gravel base or is it just vaporware?

Control Valve:
Main entry pipe is 1-1/4". Water pressure is 75 PSI and 15GPM at the bathtub.
I like the fleck 7000, mainly because it is newer and electronic. Any reason to get something else?


Thanks

Hi wazzup. As far as the tank is concerned go with poly/fiber glass. I'd be surprised if you can even find a steel tank any more. Be careful though,a steel tank will probably cost you less but there is a reason no one uses those anymore,corrosion. Also,that Fleck 7000 is a good valve,it's very simple and basic. Don't fall for some cheap unit purchased at a Menard's or something. Gravel,I think what you are asking is: Is it a good idea to have gravel at the bottom of a resin tank? I think yeah,it is a good idea. If the resin ever goes bad from city water,it'll be harder for that distributor to break becuase of how much larger that gravel is. Basically that gravel will allow water flow even under bad resin.
