Twin stage water filtration technology:
- 5 micron sediment pre filter removes dirt particles & sediment with the sediment filter (Code: PP-0510)
- 5 micron carbon filter absorbs chlorine and odours and refines the taste of your water (Code: 102)
5 Micron Sediment Filter
5 micron is a fine filtration and would be suited on high quality bore water or town water. Carbon filters are best suited for eliminating taste and odour in tank water supplies, or extraction of chemicals in town water supplies.
Carbon filtration is the most thorough form of filtration due to the longer contact time the water has with the carbon, which provides an extremely comprehensive method of chemical removal. We highly recommend this method of filtration for the best chemical taste and odour extraction of town water.
What are Undersink filters used for?
There are a few different models of Undersink filters that each have their own specific purpose. The most common model of Undersink filter you will come across is a Sediment + Coconut Carbon configuration. As the name suggests, it provides a dual action; the first filter will remove dirt particles and sediment, while the Coconut Carbon filter extracts chemicals from the water such as Chlorine.
How often should I change the filter cartridges?
Undersink Water Filter Cartridges should be changed anywhere between 6-12 months. You will usually notice a distinct change in taste of your water if you leave the filters in too long. This signifies that the Coconut Carbon Cartridge is no longer working to its full ability and is now allowing small amounts of chemicals to slip through into your drinking water. You should not leave your filters in for longer than 12 months regardless if you are on town OR rain water.
Will Undersink Water Filters Remove Fluoride?
Standard Undersink filters will not remove fluoride from the water, we recommend using reverse osmosis as it is the safest, and most effective way of removing Fluoride from the water. Ask one of our expert plumbers about what this could look like in your home or business!
