Activated Carbon Water Filter removes chemicals, water taints & odours
This 5 micron premium quality activated carbon water filter is manufactured from 100% coconut carbon ensuring better adsorption of bad taste and water odours.
Additionally this carbon cartridge does a superior job removing town water treatment chemicals (Chlorine, Chloramines & Trihalomethanes), plus rural pesticides and fertiliser.
Activated carbon water filters produced from coconut carbon also have longer cartridge life than coal based carbons, absorbing bad smells and off flavours from your filtered water.
It will also remove sediment down to 5 micron, but the carbon normally used together with a sediment pre filter. This arrangement extends the life of the activated carbon water filter.
When do I need to replace?
There is no absolute answer to the timing of filter cartridge replacement because key factors of water quality and water quantity used are site specific for families relying on tank water.
Manufacturers recommend annual water filter cartridge replacement.
But our rural water filters are often made to work hard because of variable water quality.
Many tank water users will be familiar with reduced water quality at certain times of the year.
Heavy rainfall events may also stir up tank sediment for example.
You may notice a change in water taste and/or smell.
And perhaps reduced clarity even after filtering.
Both are direct indicators of the need to replace the activated carbon water filter cartridge.
Water pressure loss in the house: slow running kitchen tap/ reduced shower pressure.
This indicates the current filter cartridge is loaded, and should be quickly replaced.
Depending on water quality/water usage, the above indicators may well occur before the manufacturer’s 12 month replacement guideline.
And after 12 months, some water filter cartridges may hold a bacterial slime which will choke off water throughput, leading to pressure loss at the tap.
Use this 5 micron activated carbon water filter in all 10″BB ( 10″ x 4.5″) filter housings to remove chemicals, ( including chlorine, chlorine by products, VOCs) , and get the sweetest tasting house water.
