Filter 1 – 1 Micron Pleated Sediment Filter
Traps any sediment present in the water stream down to 1Micron. Sediment filters are the cheaper filter and should always be the installed as the 1st stage of filtration. Removing sediment in the first stage of water filtration extends the usable life of the more expensive 2nd or 3rd stage carbon block water filters.
Pleated cartridges have up to 20 times the surface area of the cheaper spun type cartridges. They can be flushed to remove any trapped sediment.
Filter 2 – 5 Micron Silver Impregnated Bacteriastatic Carbon Block Filter
Silver impregnated in the carbon is bacteriostatic preventing microorganisms from reproducing when trapped by the carbon media.
The carbon media’s unique structure enables it to trap Giardia, Cryptosporidium, Entamoeba and Toxoplasma cysts and fine sediment particles down to 0.5 Microns.
Low Micron water filters are effective in polishing water giving it a smooth feel in the mouth.
