Inside the 10 Stage Filter Cartridge
10 Stages of Protection Against Major Water Contaminants
Stage 1- 100 micron sponge filter. Traps larger solids (sediments) such as RUST.
2- 8 oz. of KDF-55. KDF-55 is a patented alloy. It removes free
Chlorine and some Heavy Metals, thereby prolonging the life of the
filter and is an
Stage 3-10 micron felt pad. Removes smaller floating solids and separates the layers, preserving their integrity.
4- 30 cubic inches of ultra fine mesh superior coconut shell Granulated
Activated Carbon, “G.A.C..” G.A.C. has long been accepted by the E.P.A.
and others as the premier, cost-effective way to remove Chlorine, bad odor
and color from drinking water. G.A.C. also removes Organic Contaminants
such as Pesticides, Herbicides, Arsenic, Mercury and Trihalomethanes,
a Cancer-causing Organic Pollutant.
Stage 5- 10 micron felt pad for Fine Sediment Removal.
Stage 6- 7 cubic inches of ion exchange resin.This resin has an exceptional
affinity for Lead, and removes Lead to below minimum E.P.A. standards.
Stage 7- Additional 10 micron felt pad provides an extra buffer against
Floating Sediment of any kind.
Stage 8- 7 cubic inch bed of G.A.C.. Provides extra protection against
Cancer-causing Organic Pollutants.
Stage 9- 3 oz. of calcite. Calcite raises the water’s pH, which lowers acidity
and increases alkalinity, which many nutritionists recommend.
10- 1 micron absolute depth filter. A filter with a micron rating this
small screens outcysts and protozoa, (including Giardia and
and gives the filtered water a sparkling clarity.
