Highly Fluorinated water may be dangerous to your health. Drinking water with fluoride levels above 2 mg/L can lead to mottling of the teeth. Ongoing levels above 4 mg/L can result in serious health problems.
Although the main purpose of this filter is to remove fluoride, Activated Alumina can remove many other contaminants.
- Hydrogen Chloride
- Hydrogen Sulfide
- Carbonyl Sulfide
- Carbon Dioxide
- Inorganic Arsenic
- Micron Rating: 10 microns
- Dimensions: 20" x 4.5"
- Design Flow Rate: .5 GPM
- Weight: 8 lbs 8 oz
- Operation Temperature: 40°F to 100°F
- Filter Media: Activated Alumina
- Filter Life: 23,000 mg/L or 1345 GPG
For maximum effectiveness, do not exceed the recommended flow rate of .5 GPM. This filter lasts for 23,000 mg/l (ppm) with effluent levels below 0.2 ppm from 10 ppm feed (approximately 5750 gallons). Note: high pH and high bicarbonate levels reduce the capacity - above 100 ppm bicarbonate, reduce by 50%; above 200 ppm, reduce by 75%.
Interfering ions and the recommended flow rates must be specifically accounted for when sizing these cartridges.
