What Makes This Good Stuff
This water filter is installed on top of your counter, and uses KDF/GAC and carbon block filters to effectively eliminate a wide variety of common contaminants, including chlorine, chloramines, heavy metals (including lead, chromium 6, mercury), iron, aluminum, hydrogen sulfide, chemicals, DBPs (disinfection by-products), THMs (trihalomethanes), HAAs (haloacetic acids), MTBE, VOCs, many pharmaceutical products, and more. It does NOT remove fluoride. If you want to filter fluoride from your water, you will want the 3-stage filter instead.
These come complete with a pre-filter which helps filter out larger particulates found in some water supplies. This helps extend the life of the main filter cartridges.
(Fluoride in drinking water is a controversial subject. I would personally rather have pure water coming out of my tap and have the option to add fluoride in whatever dose I feel is appropriate (most likely just via toothpaste), rather than simply accepting whatever my municipality feels is the right amount. Some studies suggest a link between high-fluoride drinking water and lower IQ, but even my holistic pediatric dentist recommends it in toothpaste.)
Note: Our countertop units require a faucet that has a removable aerator/bubbler screen. Many of the newer faucets with the pull-out sprayers have non-removable aerator screens. Check your faucet before ordering.
This filter also:
• Has been tested to industry standard NSF-53 protocol by an independent laboratory.
• Leaves beneficial minerals, such as calcium and magnesium, intact.
• Come with replaceable, economical, long-life cartridge (12,000 gallons).
• Is economical, costing about a penny per gallon for water that is much higher quality than anything you’ll get out of a bottle.
Full installation instructions are included, and installation requires only the tools and skills found in most households.
NOTE: This product ships directly from the manufacturer within one week of when the order is placed.
