THREE STAGE UNDER SINK SEDIMENT FILTER, FLUORIDE/ARSENIC FILTER, CARBON/KDF FILTER REMOVES HEAVY METALS, VOC'S, PESTICIDES, CHLORINE - DELUXE BRUSHED NICKEL FAUCET!
All our filters are standard sizes and readily available from many suppliers.
This specialized filter uses the best in water purification technology to bring you a system that effectively removes far more contaminants than by using an ordinary filter alone. There are only two easy steps for a D.I. Y. installation. All parts are included for a standard installation.

1st Stage - All of our sediment filters use multi-gradient spun polypropylene filter cartridges. These cartridges use the entire depth of their media by trapping the largest sediment particles on the outside of the filter, then gradually stepping down the size of particles they will reject as the water moves closer to the core of the filter. The result is longer filter life, greater dirt-holding capacity, higher flow rates, and remarkably low pressure drop. The 100% pure polypropylene media is highly resistant to bacteria and chemicals, making this an excellent choice for both well water and municipal water treatment applications..
2nd Stage - Fluoride/Arsenic is not normally removed through the filtration process. It can be removed through reverse osmosis, this filter is designed to remove the fluoride through filtration using Activated Alumina. Activated alumina (AA) is the only filter material specifically designed to remove fluoride and arsenic from water. A ceramic compound made of aluminum oxide with a very high surface-area-to-weight ratio, AA has a very high capacity for fluoride adsorption. Most municipal water supplies add 2 ppm (parts per million) of fluoride. AA filters can reduce fluoride concentrations to below .1 ppm, or down to 99% of the normal fluoridated water level. If you are concerned about these contaminants in your water supply, this is the ideal low cost system for you.
3rd Stage - Carbon is a substance that has a long history of being used to absorb impurities and is perhaps the most powerful absorbent known to man. One pound of carbon contains a surface area of roughly 125 acres and can absorb literally thousands of different chemicals. Activated carbon which has a slight electro-positive charge added to it making it bacteriostatic, and making it even more attractive to chemicals and impurities. As the water passes over the positively charged carbon surface, the negative ions of the of the contaminants are drawn to the surface of the carbon granules. When combined with KDF, the effectiveness of the carbon's life is extended. KDF works by the redox (oxidation reduction process) like this: KDF Fluid Treatment unique combination of copper and zinc creates an electro-chemical reaction. During this reaction, electrons are transferred between molecules, and new elements are created. Some harmful contaminants are changed into harmless components. Free chlorine for instance , is changed into beingn, water-soluble chloride, which is then carried harmlessly through the water supply. Similarly, some heavy metals such as copper, lead, mercury and others, react to plate out the mediums surface, thus being effectively removed from the water supply. Carbon also removes - Volatile organic chemicals, or VOCs, are often toxic chemical compounds used industrially that may be present in water sources. A variety of fuels, solvents, coatings and refrigerants are volatile organic chemicals. Activated charcoal effectively traps and absorbs many different VOCs. Chlorine - No other filter removes chlorine and its accompanying odor and flavor as well as an activated charcoal filter. Most municipal water sources are treated at one or more stages with chlorine to kill bacteria. Pesticides - The Environmental Protection Agency lists activated charcoal filters as the only way to reduce pesticide quantities in drinking water. Many different pesticides used today are leached into our water sources and cause contamination.The carbon ensures a sparkling, pure water taste.
