Having the filters available for filter changes encourages you to maintain your system. Reverse Osmosis product water is more acidic due to it's purity. By the time the water is processed through the various stages, after the reverse osmosis stage, minerals etc has been removed. To replenish necessary minerals, an alkaline filter is recommended.
5th stage of this system is an alkaline filter, which replaces calcium, magnesium, sodium potassium ion etc, taken away during the purification process. The 6th stage is an inline carbon filter that polishes the water for a sparkling taste.
This unit contains the following. 2 INLINE POST CARBON FILTER. 1 AUTOMATIC SHUT OFF VALVE.
1 RO STORAGE TANK 3.2 gallon with 2.8 gallon capacity- 9" X 15". 1 RO FAUCET - PLEASE SPECIFY. EURO STYLE OR LONG REACH FAUCET.1 CHECK VALVE ON MEMBRANE HOUSING. 1 ICE MAKER/WATER DISPENSER LINE HOOK UP KIT. All of our sediment filters use multi-gradient spun polypropylene filter cartridges. These cartridges use the entire depth of their media by trapping the largest sediment particles on the outside of the filter, then gradually stepping down the size of particles they will reject as the water moves closer to the core of the filter. The result is longer filter life, greater dirt-holding capacity, higher flow rates, and remarkably low pressure drop. The 100% pure polypropylene media is highly resistant to bacteria and chemicals, making this an excellent choice for both well water and municipal water treatment applications. Carbon is a substance that has a long history of being used to absorb impurities and is perhaps the most powerful absorbent known to man. One pound of carbon contains a surface area of roughly 125 acres and can absorb literally thousands of different chemicals. Activated carbon which has a slight electro-positive charge added to it, making it even more attractive to chemicals and impurities. As the water passes over the positively charged carbon surface, the negative ions of the of the contaminants are drawn to the surface of the carbon granules. With carbon block filters, water is forced through the pores of the densely compacted carbon block, where a combination of mechanical filtration, electrokinetic adsorption, and physical/ chemical adsorption take place to reduce a wide range of contaminants. Solid Carbon Block technology can reduce chlorine, taste and odor problems, particulate matter, and a wide range of contaminants of health concern -- cysts (cryptosporidium and giardia), VOCs (pesticides, herbicides, and chemicals), certain endocrine disrupters, Trihalomethanes (cancer-causing disinfection by-products), heavy metals (lead, mercury), turbidity, MTBE, Chloramines and asbestos. Solid carbon block filters do not remove healthful, naturally-occurring minerals. Sodium Sulfate Calcium Potassium Nitrate Iron Zinc Mercury Selenium Phosphate Lead Arsenic Magnesium Nickel Fluoride Manganese. 85 - 94% 96 - 98% 94 - 98% 85 - 95% 60 - 75% 94 - 98% 95 - 98% 95 - 98% 94 - 96% 96 - 98% 95 - 98% 92 - 96% 94 - 98% 96 - 98% 85 - 92% 94 - 98%. % may vary based on membrane type water pressure, temperature and TDS.
Alkaline Filter - Due to the purity of water at this stage, Reverse Osmosis product water is acidic. To buffer this back to a natural Alkaline Calcium ionized water. The filter gives back minerals such as ionized Calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium.
Which was eliminated by the R. The alkaline filter comes in a clear inline housing, so you can see at a glance when it is exhausted.Post Carbon Filter - A final Polishing step that ensues a sparkling clean and pure water taste. If no preference is made, we will opt for the Long Reach Faucet. We have included the Ice Maker Connection Kit to hook up your Refrigerator Water Dispenser and Ice Maker. The feed water valve can be either the saddle valve or the feed water adapter depending on the model. Please visit our Store for more system choices. Personal checks may be held until cleared.
