This "double housing" series adds a sediment prefilter ahead of the KDF/GAC cartridge for additional contaminant removal. This unit has a changeable 1 micron sediment prefilter for ultra-clean, cyst-free (Cryptosporidium, Giardia) water. (1 micron is 1/25,000 of an inch, a human hair is about 100 microns in diameter). Recommended for areas with a high level of sediment or homes with old pipes, and for those wanting protection from cyst diseases. NYC area is known to have high levels of sediment.
This unit sits on the kitchen counter and easily connects to most any kitchen faucet, a diverter valve replaces the aerator on your faucet. In the regular position, water exits straight through the aerator. When filtered water is desired, turn on the cold water and turn the diverter valve knob - water is routed through the filter and out its own spout. Great for apartments, dorms, RV's or travel. Spout, diverter valve, and connectors are lead-free chromed brass. It can be later converted for under-counter use with part number FK, Faucet Kit ($49.00).
Includes: Two diverter adapters, housing wrench, and chlorine test strips to verify when it's time to replace cartridge.
