This Triple Under Counter Water Filter System actually consists of 9 Stages of filtration in three separate filters.
Designed for maximum effectiveness on high sediment, chlorine-treated water supplies. The Under Counter Triple Superior Water Filter is a great value; combining excellent filtration and an affordable price.
The three separate filters are: Filter 1: 5 micron sediment and particulate pre-filter protects both the Filter 2: KDF/GAC filter and the Filter 3: 1 micron Carbon Block filter. This excellent water filter system comes complete with a high-end designer ceramic-disk faucet. Recommended for all municipal water systems, particularly older cities with high sediment or particulate matter in the water.
The long-lasting replaceable filters provide 2,500 Gallons (about a year at 7 gallons per day!) of great-tasting, healthy, crystal clear water. That`s less than 6 cents/gallon without shopping and lugging bottles around! We recommend annual replacement of the filter cartridges.

Measures: 14" wide x 5" deep x 13.5" high. Includes all necessary parts and instructions for easy installation:
- Multi-Stages with an 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
- Heavy Metal Reduction: Reduces soluble lead 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 and other compounds that
contribute to taste and odor.
- Particulate, Cyst and Turbidity Reduction: Meets NSF Standard 53 for reduction of Cryptosporidium, Giardia, Entamoeba and Toxoplasmosis. 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.
(No plumber necessary if you're handy with tools).
Filter Cartridges included:
A 5-micron string-wound filter
that provides large particulate and sediment reduction and protects the more expensive 2nd and 3rd stage filters from early clogging.
Stage 2: The filter cartridge in the 2nd stage of the WU005, a KDF/GAC filter cartridge utilizes KDF55 filtration media, GAC (granular activated carbon) and 3 separate polypropylene particulate filters. KDF 55 Media is designed specifically for removing or reducing chlorine and
water-soluble heavy metals. It also controls scale, bacteria and algae. The process medium has received NSF International
Certification. This medium is
also in compliance with California’s Health and Safety Code Section
166875 (or commonly know as AB1953) and Vermont Act 193. KDF55 is a high-purity, granulated copper and zinc-based alloy used to treat water through a process based upon the principle of redox (Oxidation-Reduction).
Stage 3: The filter cartridge in the 3rd stage of the WU005 is a high capacity 1.0 micron solid carbon block filter, the Matrikx Pb-1 provides excellent contaminant reduction. this solid carbon block filter provides 0.5 micron nominal filtration (1 micron absolute). A dense pre-filtration wrap combined with a high capacity extruded activated carbon block provides excellent filtration characteristics with a high affinity for adsorption of Chlorine, Lead, Cysts, VOC's, tastes, odors, dirt, rust and sediment.
Limited 1 year warranty on parts. We highly recommend replacing the housings every 5 years as the food grade materials used in the housing manufacture may become brittle. Maximum 75 psi water pressure.
