ADVANCED FILTRATION TECHNOLOGY
The WaterSentinel® Super Premium Two-Stage Garden Hose In-Line Water Filter uses only the highest quality KDF media and water-washed coconut shell carbon to significantly reduce bacteria, chlorine, hydrogen sulfide, water-soluble heavy metals, and microorganisms, providing you crisp, clean and safe drinking water. Coconut Shell carbon is an excellent filtration media, having high density with a balanced pore structure for efficient absorption.
The First Media is activated carbon to remove unpleasant taste such as taste of chlorine from drinking water. The activated carbon removes certain chemicals that are dissolved in water passing through a filter containing GAC by trapping the chemical in the GAC. Coconut Shell carbon performs better than standard carbon "charcoal" filtering media in removing chlorine, and improving tastes and odors.
The Second Media is KDF a high-purity copper-zinc formulation that uses a basic chemical process known as redox (oxidation/reduction) to remove chlorine, iron, and hydrogen sulfide from water supplies. The process also has a mild anti-bacterial, algaecitic, and fungicitic, effect and may reduce the accumulation of lime scale.
This filter should not be used with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality, without adequate disinfection before and/or after the filter.
This filter has been tested by the manufacturer against ANSI/NSF Standard 42 for the reduction of chlorine taste and odor.
