Q: My cartridge came visibly with less KDF that in previous years?
A: It is an identical product from the same manufacturer. Older cartridges use standard KDF, which looks like metal particles. Newer cartridges use a different form of KDF material that looks like fibers. According to manufacturer a smaller amount of KDF in fiber form would perform at similar level as larger amount of KDF metal particles. The new cartridge is also a little lighter.
