Before the carbon filter is the sediment pre filter kit. Removing any fine sediment, silt or debris helps the activated carbon focus on absorption. The sediment pre filter comes with a complete kit to install and mount before the carbon filter and is recommended to be changed every 8-10 months.
Changing the sediment pre filter is easy to do and takes no more than a minute for an average homeowner to do. Changing the sediment filter is the only maintenance required. Once installed, the system virtually works on its own not needing to be worried about.
We give 4 free sediment pre filters with each order. We can also ship them out when you need them for only $11 apiece.
We use a highly regulated and tested GAC for our systems. if you have ever started up one of our systems compared to others, you may notice that our systems rinse down much faster. This is due to a few extra processes we run our carbon through. First is the acid washing. This helps to neutralize the GAC. GAC in its raw manufactured form tend to raise the pH considerably. in order to minimize this, we use a natural acid washing method to greatly lessen the pH raising affects of the carbon. We then de-dust it prior to bulk packaging.
Lastly, when we fill our tanks, we use a vacuum de-dusting process that further lowers the ash content of the end product. We have spent considerable money, time and effort to source this higher grade GAC and the results have been very well received by our customers. The slightly higher cost is worth it considering how much we have reduced end user complaints and the extremely long start up times and "dirty grey" water that is so common with other manufacturers systems.
The Coconut shell carbon is NSF certified and has been known to absorb more contaminants than any other type of carbon on the market. The coconut shell carbon also produces water comparable to bottled water in taste, full of all of its natural minerals. Being made from natural coconut shells there is nothing added that adversely affects the water unlike tradition carbon made from coal. We simply use the very best carbon we can find and put it through a process unsurpassed by competitors.

How Does it Work?
The water first reaches a blue sediment pre filter, to reduce any sand, silt or debris that is in the water. The filter features a 5 micron replaceable filter is so small that it traps even the smallest of particles in the water. This will not only protect and extend the life of your appliances but also for the whole house water filter or softener. With typical use you can expect to change the sediment filter every 3 months. Replacing this filter is easy to do taking under a minute to do. A filter wrench is included to twist off the housing.
Stage 2 and 3
After the water goes the sediment pre filter, it will now enter the main large tank. This tank includes granular media also known as Granular Activated Carbon (GAC). Carbon has been recognized by the EPA as the best method to reduce contaminants. Our filters come pre-loaded with the fines blends of high-grade coconut shell activated carbon. We blend the media based on your location to suite your specific water needs. We select the most superior carbon on the market for you and your family.
This blend of media will produce purified water free from major contaminants like chlorine, chloramines, herbicides, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, industrial solvents and hundreds more not always regulated by the local municipal water district.
After stage 2 &3 purified water enters all the taps in your home.
