This 20 inch x 4.5 inch sediment filter is made of 100% high purity polypropylene, surfactant free, binder free and adhesive free. This sediment has a special design to trap particulates. Four layers, with outside-in flow and step-by-step micron rating that effectively retains particles and extends the filter life with a much lower pressure drop. Sediment filters are in compliance with FDA requirements and they are NSF Standard 42 certified. Available in; One (1), five (5), ten (10), twenty (20) or fifty (50) micron rating, up to 8 gallon flow rate, 20" length and 4 1/2 OD"
They have great particle holding capacity and are being used in a variety of applications such as pre-filters for reverse osmosis systems, pre-filters for water filtration units, aquarium pre-filters and being used as sediment collectors for whole house systems.

The carbon block filters are 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 Standard 42 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. Available in; one (1), five (5), or ten (10) micron rating, 20" length and 4 1/2 OD"
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 4.5" 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.

Ultraviolet Light (Sterilizer) with UV Lamp Ballast
Ultraviolet is recognized as superior compared to other methods of disinfection;
* UV is very safe. There are no dangerous chemicals to handle or monitor. Disinfection results are immediate.
* UV has a low initial system cost and a very low cost of operation.
* UV is environmentally friendly. There are no byproducts from the UV process, and nothing is discharged into the environment.
* UV causes no change to the taste or odor of the water disinfected. It is impossible to over-treat water with UV.
* UV systems are very easy to install and maintain.
* UV disinfection is compatible with all other forms of water treatment.
How UV works.
The water enters an ultraviolet sterilization chamber where any viruses, bacteria, mold, and other living microorganisms are bombarded with special, intense light of a specific wave length. The UV light penetrates the wall of the organisms and attacks their DNA structure leaving the organism unable to reproduce (or
"dead"). UV technology is recognized by the EPA as one of four approved methods of sterilizing
water, and is preferable over the other three methods (chlorine, iodine, and distillation) due to the
cost of treatment and effectiveness of UV (UV works almost instantaneously, leaving no residuals or chemicals in the water). This UV module operates for a full year at 30,000 microwatt seconds/cm². As a point of reference, the table below is a list of common bacteria and viruses, and the dosage required to render them harmless.
