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. It does NOT eliminate fluoride–for that you want our 3-stage filter.
(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 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.
