Top quality, heavy duty construction clear housing with 3/4 inch inlet and outlet ports. The unit has a pressure release button for ease of filter replacement. Clear housings will permit you to observe the filters and thereby allow you to monitor the depletion of the filters. This will take the guess work out of when to replace your filters.

This carbon block filter is manufactured with high purity Coconut Shell activated carbon with extruded activated carbon block construction. They do not release carbon fines and they are FDA compliant and they are NSF certified. These solid carbon block filters have combined the adsorption capability of carbon, with the ability of a solid block material to selectively strain out particles from the water that is being forced through the filter.
Activated carbon has an electro-positive charge added which results in this type of carbon attracting more chemicals and impurities. As the water passes through the positively charged carbon, the contaminants with their negative ions, are attracted to the carbon granules and thus extracted from the water.
The block of carbon strains out sediment, dirt, bacteria, microscopic worms, algae, asbestos and cryptosporidium. With just water pressure, this compacted solid carbon block is designed to filter sub micron size particles. This microstraining of the water will provide clean and clear drinking water.
Activated carbon bonds to thousands of known chemicals. As water is forced through this solid block of carbon, it is forced to slow its flow speed and thereby increase the contact time with the carbon. This slowing of the flow allows the carbon bonding to take place and remove chemical pollutants like toxins, THM's, chlorine, pesticides, bad tastes, odors, etc.
Solid block carbon filters are very uniform and do not channel or bypass as conventional granular activated carbon (GAC) filters are know to do.
Because of the density of the solid block carbon filters, there is no room for bacteria to grow, so these filters do not become an incubator for bacteria as GAC filter are known to be.
These carbon block filters will fit most types of 10" x 2.5" filter housings on the market today and as noted previously, they will fit into the housings on nearly all water filtration and reverse osmosis systems. CTO carbon block filters preform well in both commercial and residential applications and they are the most widely used carbon filters on the market today.

This package will provide your family with good quality filtered water at a fraction of the price of bottled water.
The diverter valve is designed to switch between tap water (unfiltered) - which you would continue to use for utility purposes - and filtered water for drinking and cooking. No plumbing is necessary, installs in seconds as the diverter valve is easily attached to the faucet.
This unit is ideal for renters who can not make changes to their under-the-sink plumbing but want to improve the quality of their drinking water. Likewise, for those on the go such as RVers and travelers, this unit can be moved with you and thereby provide you a quality drink of water wherever you are, at home or on the road
