Uses highly porous anion resin is impregnated with iron oxide to allow for fast and efficient adsorption of arsenic. The added combination of Coconut Shell Carbon or Granulated Activated Carbon(GAC) and Eagle Redox Alloy media layers increases the systems' effectivity in removing hundreds of other contaminants from your tap water. Counter-top water filter systems installs in seconds and sits on the countertop for water on demand and an easy option to choose between filtered and unfiltered water in one switch.
Arsenic(As) is a semi-metal element that has no taste, odor, or color, and is not easily dissolved. It occurs naturally in the environment, as a by-product of mining, or agricultural areas when materials containing arsenic are used as industrial poisons. It enters drinking water supplies from natural deposits in the earth or from agricultural and industrial practices. Arsenic is considered highly toxic and a carcinogen. According to the EPA, people who drink water containing arsenic well in excess of the MCL for many years could experience skin damage or problems with their circulatory system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer from drinking water.(The current MCL for arsenic, as per EPA, is 0.010 mg/l or 10ppb as of 01/23/06.)
If your arsenic level is very high, above 30 - 40 ppb ( 0.03 - 0.04 mg/L ), we suggest going with a dual cartridge system, and at higher than 50 ppb levels with a Triple arsenic removal system. At levels significantly over 50 ppb (0.05 mg/L) consider triple countertop or triple under sink arsenic removal system with TWO arsenic filters (you will have to order an extra arsenic filter and replace the first carbon cartridge with it) for 4x arenic removal capacity.
