The CBR2-10 are advanced multimedia cartridges designed to reduce chlorine taste and odor, dissolved and particulate lead, cysts, MTBE and certain volatile organic chemicals (VOCs).*

CBR2 Series cartridges are manufactured using a patented process, and combine powdered activated carbon (PAC) with a specially designed adsorbent medium for lead and mercury reduction.

These cartridges are protected by Endurawrap, a uniquely formulated polyolefin bilaminate pre-filter, designed to significantly increase the useful life of the cartridge by trapping sediment that typically plugs carbon block cartridges.

In addition to lead reduction, the unique structure of the carbon block enables it to reduce Giardia, Cryptosporidium, Entamoeba and Toxoplasma cysts and fine sediment particles down to 0.5 microns.*

As with our standard CBC Series carbon block, the CBR2-10 IS effective at reducing levels of chlorine taste & odor, MTBE and VOCs.*

* Based on manufacturer's internal testing.

Favorite Filter
I have been using this particular filter (Pentek CBR2-10 )for close to 10 years. It produces clean clear water that tastes great. Then again I'm filtering city water in to the fridge, so the water is already pretty clean. I change the filter every 1 to 2 years and have it pre-filtered by 1 micron sediment filter, so this filter always looks pretty clean at change out. It's the pre-filter in the other sump that looks a little gunky. This filter has a NSF rating and you can find the manufacturer's data sheet is available from pentek filtration (links aren't permitted in reviews, so you'll have to search on your own) The only concern is that it seems this filter is now being manufactured in China, so I may switch to a different brand that is manufactured in the USA...say maybe omnipure
