What Makes This Good Stuff
This filter system is installed under your counter, out of sight, 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. The third filter is there to remove fluoride. If you prefer to leave the fluoride in your water, you would want the 2-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.)
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: Most sinks have an optional space that can house a water spigot–it will have a plug that can be removed just this purpose. If your skin DOESN’T have this option, you would need to hire someone to cut a hole. Otherwise, you would need to opt for the countertop unit.
All of the under counter filters include a premium series chrome upscale faucet at no extra charge. This elegant lead-free solid brass faucet features a smooth quarter turn handle with a ceramic seat for a lifetime of service – no flimsy, cheap plastic flip-handle like most competitors! There is no spring, so the handle stays in the position you place it, like a regular faucet. In addition to the ALL CHROME color scheme, it is available for $20 more in BRUSHED NICKEL (stainless steel look), WHITE, ALMOND, BLACK, ANTIQUE BRONZE and POLISHED BRASS.
If you live in New York City or other urban areas, you will want to add a pre-filter to improve the functionality and life of your filter (due to high sediment rates in these areas).
NOTE: This product ships directly from the manufacturer within one week of when the order is placed.
