This under counter filter unit features a Doulton Ultracarb three stage cartridge combining the highly efficient filtration properties of ceramic with the enhanced water treatment properties of activated carbon and the heavy metal reduction capabilities of ion exchange media.
First Stage: The first stage consists of Doulton sterasyl ceramic which provides genuine sub micron filtration. The cartridge reduces fine particulate matter, bacteria, cysts and turbidity. The incorporation of silver locked within the ceramic structure gives enhanced bacteriostatic and self sterilizing properties.
Second stage: An inner core of activated carbon block removes chlorine and organic compounds.
Third Stage: Ion exchange resin reduces lead and other heavy metals.
This cartridge combination provides: 100% rejection of cysts and >99.99% of pathogenic bacteria such as cholera, typhus, amoebic dysentery, ecoli, colibacillose or bilharzia among others. Depth filtration of particulates >0.9 Ám (dirt, turbidity etc). In addition, a variety of dedicated fittings are placed inside the bore of the element to remove chlorine, bad taste and odor, pesticides, herbicides, industrial solvents lead and other heavy metals.
All Doulton ceramic cartridges are bacteriostatic - that is, self sterilizing for bacteriological safe cleaning and handling.
Quick-connect fittings make installation a snap! All of our undercounter filters are placed out of the way, under the sink. They connect to the cold water line with an "Angle Stop Valve" and dispense water through an attractive long reach solid brass faucet. Quick-connect fittings make for fast, easy installation. A 1/2" hole is all that is needed for the faucet stud (all series), but a cover plate is included to accommodate larger pre-drilled holes (such as a vegetable sprayer hole).
Includes: Standard faucet, angle stop valve connector, high pressure polyethylene tubing, mounting bracket, housing wrench and chlorine test strips to verify when it's time to replace cartridge.
Flow Rate: 0.5 GPM (1.9 L/min) for cold water use only. Filter rated for 600 gallons lead reduction, 1,000 gallons chlorine reduction.
Recommended Change: 12 months or 1,000 gallons, whichever is sooner.
Recommended Cleaning Frequency: every 3 months or when water flow rate is noticeable lower (can be cleaned and reused many times).
