Our recommended combination of filter cartridges are detailed below ideal for the conscientious consumer. However, this system is designed in order that you can choose the filter cartridges that best suit your needs; dependent on the contamination you wish to remove from your water supply.
Two-stage filtration process
Stage 1 – The Water Shop Fluoride Cartridge Made in USA
The system’s fluoride removal media is the same mineral that rubies and sapphires (corundum) are made from, in crystalline form. The process ‘selective adsorption’ is a physical/ chemical reaction whereby the fluoride ions are removed by binding to the media’s oxidised surface.
This highly porous media has a large surface area of 200meter² per gram for optimal filtration.
The second stage filter cartridge featured within the twin undersink has two important functions:
- The ceramic outer shell – manufactured with Doulton Sterasyl® ceramic – mechanically filters out harmful bacteria and parasites to sub-micron filtration. This stage reduces fine particulate matter, bacteria, cysts and turbidity. Silver, incorporated within this ceramic structure provides enhanced bacteriostatic and self sterilising properties.
- An inner core of quality NSF certified (ANSI 61) coconut shell based granular activated carbon removes chlorine and organic compounds. Ion exchange resin incorporated within the inner core effectively reduces lead, zinc and other heavy metals.
The Water Shop Fluoride Twin Countertop system provides a supreme quality, cost effective and portable method of water filtration, removing all contaminants of concern to the user including fluoride and chloramines.
