Carbon/Softener rebedding

I would love it if someone could run a course on this.  It's not rocket science is it!?

I'm sure it is something we as techs could do ourselves.

Anyone with experience fancy running an education day?

Hi all,
Has anyone changed the carbon in a large GAC ?
Having had some very expensive quotes we are going to do it ourselves on our 16" x 65" cylinders.
We've changed softener resin lots of times but these cylinders are a bit big. A 200kg cylinder is going to be a bit difficult to manoeuvre in a very tight space.
Any hints or tips on the best way to get the old carbon out ?
Regards
Chris

Hi Chris,
I've seen it done by syphoning, the softener resin is drawn out with the water flow and filtered out by porous sacks held over a large tank to collect the water. They kept refilling the tank with a hose to fluff up the beads until flushed out.
I'm sure it would work the same with carbon.
