A great water filter value, with multiple filter cartridge choices for Chlorine, Chloramine and/or Fluoride treated city water supplies - provides excellent filtration for up to 2500 gallons or more at an affordable price. All components are manufactured with NSF certified materials for safe water filtration usage. Outstanding performance is achieved by using the standard replaceable 1.0 micron Matrikx Solid Carbon Block filter cartridge OR the optional Fluoride, Chlorine, Chloramine, Lead, MTBE and Arsenic reduction cartridges.
The Standard Carbon Block: Matrikx Coconut Shell Extruded Carbon Block Matrikx Pb-1 cartridge removes particulates as small as 1 micron and filters Chlorine taste and odor, Lead, VOC's, Cysts, Giardia, Pharmaceuticals, Pesticides, Chemicals, sediment, rust, and particulate matter for sweet, clear, great-tasting water. Long-lasting, 2,500 gallons of pure, filtered water.
The Option A: Carbon Block adds Fluoride, Chloramine, and Arsenic reduction, the AquaMetix cartridge is for municipal water with added Fluoride or treated with Chloramine or Chlorine. 1,000 to 3,500 gallon use depending on contaminant.
The Option B: combines a Ceramic shell with an extruded Carbon Block, the CeraMetix cartridge adds Bacteria and Pathogen reduction, if desired. Most municipal water supplies do a pretty good job of eliminating pathogens. This cartridge does require some maintenance (periodic scrubbing of outer Ceramic Shell with a kitchen scrub sponge). This Optional Ceramic/Carbon Block Fluoride, Chloramine, Arsenic cartridge, is not pre-installed (we find it ships better if it's not pre-installed, but installation only takes 5 minutes and is very simple, you'll need to know how anyway whenever you change filters.)
Depending upon cartridge choice, provides 600 to 2,500 Gallons of great- tasting, crystal clear water. That`s about 3-5 cents/gallon without lugging bottles around! We recommend annual or semi-annual replacement of the water filter cartridge.
Specifications for the Standard Carbon Block, the Matrikx (WR001) for municipal water supplies treated with Chlorine and no added Fluoride:
- Solid Extruded Coconut Shell Activated Carbon Block Filter, NSF/ANSI Certified materials
- .5 Micron Nominal Filtration
- Recommended Annual Filter Change
- Chlorine Reduction: 6,000 gallons at 0.75 GPM
- 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, 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.
