How Triple Countertop Water Filter works
First, water travels through a 5 micron sediment filter that removes sediment, silt and dirt. This cartridge also extends life of the system
Second, a 6-stage cartridge is used to effectively remove or reduce hundreds of contaminants. Cartridge consists of 1-micron pads, KDF55, KDF85, GAC and ion exchange layers
Third, a 5 micron solid carbon block cartridge is used for removing (or greatly reducing) of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), insecticides, pesticides, and industrial solvents.
A diverted valve near the aerator switches between filtered and unfiltered water.
Flow rate: 0.5 to 0.75 gallon per minute, best performance @ 0.5 gpm
Filtration capacity (6-stage cartridge): 10,000 gallons, (replace every 1-3 years); 20,000 gallons (replace every 2-4 years); 30,000 gallons (replace every 3-5 years).
Filter Replacement: Sediment and Carbon block filter: 6-12 months, 6-stage cartridge see above.

Q: Can I use this system on well water or water that has bacteria , cryptosporydium, giardia or similar?
You can modify this system to take care of these issues. Carbon Block cartridge (third filter) in this system can be replaced with 0.2 micron Ulfrafiltration Membrane (see below or click here
, sold separately) to make water biologically safe and to remove bacteria , viruses and parasites. If you modify it, we recommend the following order of cartridges: Sediment filter, Ultrafiltration membrane, 6-stage cartridge.
