This 5-stage reverse osmosis unit offers high-quality performance in a package designed especially for budget-minded consumers. Its first stage is a sediment filter that reduces dirt, sand, and rust particles down to 5 microns in size. The second stage is a catalytic activated carbon prefilter that provides reduction of chloramines and suppresses bacterial build-up in the system. This prefilter also reduces VOC's and chemicals that impart tastes and odors. The third stage is a premium carbon block cartridge. The fourth stage is a premium 50 gpd thin-film composite membrane capable of producing ultra-high purity water. A special coconut shell carbon postfilter improves taste.
NOTE: This system can remove chloramine. Most RO systems can not effectively remove chloramine. Chloramine is not the same as chlorine. It is a mixture of chlorine and ammonia that is very difficult to remove from water. It will pass right through a normal reverse-osmosis system or a distiller, and become concentrated in the product water. In susceptible individuals, chloramine causes gastric irritation. Many municipalities now use chloramine instead of chlorine as a disinfectant because it has been discovered that chlorine can combine with dissolved organic matter in water and create cancer-causing by products. Many cities with surface water supplies high in dissoved organic matter (caused by decaying plants, algae, leaves, etc.) cannot comply with new EPA regulations limiting these by-products so it is cheaper to use chloramine to disinfect the water than remove the dissolved organic matter.
