Undersink Water Filter with three cartridges, that includes a Carbon Block cartridge, a Fluoride removal filter and, a 6-stage filter that removes hundreds of contaminants from water. Water travels through 8 stages of filtration, which removes Fluoride AND hunderds of other contaminants from your water source.
Under Sink Filter With Fluoride features:
First, water travels through a Carbon Block cartridge for removing volatile organic compounds (VOCs, insecticides, pesticides and industrial solvents).
In Second Step, water travels through Fluoride removal cartridge, containing fine-mesh pre-resin media (SIR-900) to reduce fluoride below 0.5 ppm. This filter also effectively removes arsenic. Capacity is up to 15,000 ppm with effluent levels below 0.2 ppm from 10 ppm feed. Note: high pH and high bicarbonate levels reduce the capacity - above 100 ppm bicarbonate, reduction by 50%; above 200 ppm, reduction by 75%.
In Third Stage, water travels through a 6-stage cartridge that removes hundreds of contaminants. This filter consists of 1 micron sediment pads, KDF, GAC and ion exchange resin layers.
Easy installation under any standard sink.W14F Under Counter Fluoride Removal System
consists of 3 cartridges:
Cartridge 1 is Carbon Block cartridge that needs to be replaced every 6-9 months. Maximum life of a carbon block is 12 months we do not recomment using it beyond that because of potential of bacteria growth inside a cartridge.
Cartridge 2 is a Fluoride Removal cartridge with an average life of 1 year. It's life span varies greatly based on the amount of fluoride in water and other water conditions
Cartridge 3 is a multi-stage filter that can come in 3 types: 10,000 , 20,000 or 30,000 gallons. This cartridge determines maximum system filtration capacity.
