Under Sink Water Filter - Single-Stage A great water filter value, designed for chlorine treated municipal water supplies - provides excellent filtration of up to 2500 gallons at an affordable price. All components of the Under Counter Superior Water Filter system are NSF certified for safe water filtration usage. Outstanding performance is achieved by using a replaceable 0.5 micron Matrikx Pb-1 Solid Carbon Block filter cartridge. This cartridge removes particulates as small as 1.0 micron and filters chlorine taste and odor, lead, VOC's, cysts, sediment, rust, and particulate matter for sweet, clear, great-tasting water.
We supply a designer ceramic-disk faucet which relieves the water pressure when the faucet is not on to help preserve housing life.
Comes with the long-lasting replaceable water filter cartridges (pre-installed), our WR001 or the Optional Fluoride, Chloramine, Pathogens and Arsenic cartridge, the WRFLAR cartridge (An incredible filter cartridge, the best specs of any cartridge we've ever found!). Follow the link for a further description of these replacement cartridges and capabilities. Provides 1,000 to 2,500 Gallons of great- tasting, crystal clear water. That`s about 3 cents/gallon
without lugging bottles around! We recommend annual replacement of
the water filter cartridge. Due to the nature of a diverter valve and
the natural minerals in water, a few drops of vegetable oil on the slide
every so often will help keep it functional.
Additional Specifications for the Standard Carbon Block:
- Solid Extruded Activated Carbon Block Filter
- Lead Reduction: 2,500 gallons at 0.75 GPM
- Cyst Reduction: Giardia, Cryptosporidium Class 1
- Turbidity Reduction based on NSF 53
- Outstanding Chlorine, Taste and Odor Reduction for up to 6,000 gallons.
- Heavy Metal Reduction: Reduces soluble Lead and other heavy metals, i.e. Mercury, using an
ion-exchange filter medium with high specificity for soluble lead.
Advanced particulate filtration is used to intercept insoluble lead-containing
- Chemical Adsorption: Reduces Volatile Organic Chemical contaminants
including chlorine, fertilizers, pesticides, pharmaceuticals and other compounds that
contribute to health, taste and odor.
- Particulate, Cyst and Turbidity Reduction: Meets NSF Standard 53 for reduction of Cryptosporidium, Giardia, Entamoeba and Toxoplasma. Filters provide > 99.98% reduction of 3-4 micron particulates,
> 99.96% reduction of 1-2 µ particulates, and are high performance
sediment filters with extended life. Extruded activated carbon filters provide
several times greater life than traditional molded carbon or granular carbon filters
- Made in the U.S.A.
The Optional Carbon Block Cartridge with slightly different specs, adds Fluoride, Chloramine, Bacteria and Arsenic reduction for up to 1,000 gallons.
Contaminant Removals for the Optional Carbon Block:
- Pathogenic bacteria - Cholera, Typhoid, Salmonella, Fecal Coliform, E. Coli >99.9999%
- Cysts - Cryptosporidium Parvum, Giardia Lamblia - 100%
- Sediment - 100% absolute to .5 micron
- Turbidity >99.7%

Our Superior series water filters provide =99.984% reduction of 3 - 4 m particles (=99.96% reduction of 1 -2 m particles) and operate as well as high performance contaminant reduction filters with extended life. The Superior series provides excellent reduction of Chlorine, tastes and odors.
Design Features: Our Solid Carbon Block filters are designed flow in the radial (outside-to-inside) direction, providing increased dirt capacity and low pressure drop. Unlike granular activated carbon (GAC) water filters, solid carbon block filter cartridges will not channel or bypass and lose filtering capability and efficiency. Service life of the water filter cartridge is greatly extended by two layers of pre-filtration media consisting of a 15 m polypropylene spunbonded outer prefiltration layer and a 5m polypropylene melt-blown inner layer.
Comes complete with mounting bracket, stainless steel screws, chrome ceramic-disk non-leak faucet, feed water in-line valve and all necessary tubing.
1 year warranty on parts.
