Under Sink Water Filter Ultimate, Double Replaceable Cartridge
Secondly, water then passes through a six stage multi filtration cartridge removing more contaminants. The cartridge stages are as follows:
In stages 1 and 6, pre and post one - micron filter pads remove suspended particles such as silt, sediment, cysts (Giardia, Cryptosporidium), sand, rust, dirt, and other un-dissolved matter.
In stages 2 and 3, Chlorine is instantaneously oxidized as water flows through a media made of a special blend of two dissimilar metals - copper and zinc (KDF-55D �, and KDF-85D �) that works on electro-chemical and spontaneous-oxidation-reduction (REDOX) principles. Iron and hydrogen sulfide are also oxidized and removed.
Heavy metals such as lead, mercury, copper, nickel, chromium, cadmium, aluminum, and other dissolved metals are removed from the water by the electrochemical process, which attracts them to the surface of the media, much like a magnet. The media inhibits bacterial growth, eliminating the need for silver, which is commonly used in carbon-only filters (silver is considered a pesticide by the EPA ).
Stage 4, Water flows through the ion exchange resin, further reducing lead, copper, aluminum, and water hardness.
Stage 5, Water flows through granulated activated carbon (GAC). adsorbing organic contaminants, such as chlorine and other chemicals linked to cancer such as benzine, pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, volatile organic compounds (VOC's), PCB's, MTBE's. This also removes any bad taste or odors from your water.
This carbon is a high-grade coconut shell carbon that is most effective at removing chemicals than carbon from coal, wood or lignite based carbon and is more effective than other carbon types in removing tri-halo-methanes and other chemicals from municipally supplied water. Since the REDOX media removes the chlorine before it reaches the carbon, the carbon capacity is not wasted on chlorine and is free to concentrate more effectively on organic contaminants.
