The redox reaction of KDF also inhibits the growth of bacteria, algae, and fungi. Uses NSF-compliant components. Also has a cyst-rated pre-filter built in to the cartridge for 99.999% removal of Cryptosporidium & Giardia.

An Impressive 1 Gallon Per Minute Flow Rate. Many competitors offer only 1/2 gallon per minute.

What Makes Our Filters Better?

* Our filter cartridge is tested and rated for optimum performance at over 12,000 gallons on city water.  NOTE: Only recommended for well water that has no other contaminants such as iron, sulfur, manganese, etc.   For unfiltered city water sources such as that in New York City or Boston, we highly recommend the CTD-12.  The copepods in those water sources are known to prematurely clog the cartridge in the CT-12.

* Filter cartridge needs only to be replaced on average every 3 years, vs. 6 months with most other filters. Compare the total costs and save!

* Higher flow rate than the leading competitor. The CT-12 has a flow rate of 1 Gallon/Min. vs. 1/2 Gallon/Min.
   
* Filter has a built-in 1 micron cyst-rated pre-filter to remove Cryptosporidium & Giardia.

* KDF media is the first stage after sediment to greatly extend the life of the granular activated carbon (GAC).

* GAC media is made from highly adsorbent shells known.

* Lifetime warranty on filter housing and components
   
* 3-year prorated warranty on filter cartridges

* 6-Month Money Back Guarantee

FAQs

1. How often do I have to check my KDF/GAC filter for chlorine using the chlorine test strips.
a. If you are filtering city water, you may check yearly or if the filtered water had a chlorine smell or taste.

2. Can you use the Model CT-12 or CTD-12 for filtering well water?
a. Yes, you can filter well water with the KDF/GAC filter, and it is recommended that you use the Model CTD-12 which has a ceramic prefilter for bacteria. You should replace the KDF/GAC filter once a year if you live in a farming community where pesticides are used.

3. What is the flow rate of the countertop and undercounter filter systems?
a. The flow rate is 1 gallon per minute.

4. What happens if water output slows down?

a. If you're using the CTD-12 or UCD-12C filters, the ceramic prefilter is beginning to get blocked with sediment. The ceramic filter should be removed and soaked in warm water to loosen the sediment. Then the filter should be then wiped off with a cloth.

5. Can the KDF/GAC filter get clogged?

a. The KDF/GAC filter may clog if there is too much sediment in your water. We offer a 5 micron rated KDF/GAC filter for areas with more sediment.

6. When mounting the undercounter water filter faucet in my sink or countertop, what size is required for the faucet to fit?
a. The faucet requires a 1/2" diameter hole for mounting.

7. How do I replace the KDF/GAC filter when it stops removing chlorine?
a. Remove the filter housing using the wrench supplied with your water filter system. The housing has two parts: the base with the metal fittings, or the wide part, and the longer half, called the sump, that screws into the base. Place the wrench over the narrow end of the sump housing and move towards the wider end until it stops. Turn the sump counterclockwise to remove, keeping it over a sink or pail to catch the water. Remove the old cartridge and slide the replacement cartridge into the sump part of the housing with the end that has the white open slots facing the opening of the sump, on the top of the cartridge you'll see the words "this end up." Place the base of the housing on the sump and tighten (clockwise) completely to prevent leaking.

8. Who makes your filters?

a. We make virtually every part of our water filters, and all parts are made in the USA.

9. Do you have a filter that removes the fluoride that is added to municipal water systems?
a. The KDF/GAC filter will remove some of the fluoride (30 to 50 percent) added to municipal water systems. A special fluoride filter is required to remove virtually all of the fluoride which may be added to double or triple models.

10. I have a bacteria problem in my drinking water. What product should I use to remove bacteria?
a. The ceramic filter is used to remove bacteria and cysts. Use the Model UCD-12C or the CTD-12, a double undercounter filter with one ceramic cartridge as a prefilter and the KDF/GAC cartridge as the second filter.

11. Do any of your filters contain silver, which is known to kill bacteria?

a. Silver is combined with some carbon filters to inhibit bacteria, but it may not be safe to ingest silver. The KDF/GAC filter inhibits bacteria growth and it is 100% safe.

12. Can I use bleach to clean the ceramic filter?
a. No. Don't use bleach to clean the ceramic filter. Soak it in water with a few drops of dish washing soap and then scrub with a soapless dish cleaning pad. The 3M Scotchbrite brand (or similar pad), available at any grocery store, works well. You don't want to put bleach in your drinking water.

13. How often can you clean the ceramic filter before it wears out?
a. Each time you clean the ceramic cartridge, a small amount is warn away. The filter can be cleaned 30 times before it wears out (about once a month). It will filter approximately 12,000 gallons. You'll need to replace the filter if it becomes too thin and weak.

14. Does the KDF filter remove chloramine?
a. No, it will not remove.  If your municipality uses chloramines, you may wish to install a whole house water filter such as the PurHome X-1000.

15. Many of the filters I've seen use a carbon block filter. What is the difference between your KDF/GAC filters and the carbon block filters?
a. The KDF/GAC filter lasts longer and inhibits bacteria growth. The carbon block filter alone allows bacteria to grow, and must be replaced more frequently.

16. After connecting the diverter to my faucet from my countertop filter, water is leaking from the connection. How to I solve the problem?
a. Water can leak from the top of the diverter if you forget to put the black washer into the diverter before you connect it to your faucet (after you've removed the aerator). A black washer is supplied with all countertop filters. Or, you may want to use some Teflon tape.

17. I live in NYC and have copepods in my water.  How should I effectively filter them?
a. Click here for an article about copepods in New York City tap water.
The 3-stage water filter, made with Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) from the highest quality coconut shells combined with KDF-55, substantially reduces chlorine, lead, pesticides, herbicides, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) like benzene and THM's, bad tastes and odors from your drinking water.

The redox reaction of KDF also inhibits the growth of bacteria, algae, and fungi. Uses NSF-compliant components. Also has a cyst-rated pre-filter built in to the cartridge for 99.999% removal of Cryptosporidium & Giardia.

Filter Cartridge should be changed every 3 years or sooner if pressure slows or water conditions warrant.
