- Filter cartridges should be replaced when capacity has been exceeded, or when a noticeable decrease in flow is observed, whichever comes first.
- Many water utilities add fluoride to their water for dental and skeletal health.
- Aquifer filters do not remove fluoride.
- The K-202 Aquifer water filter is certified by NSF International to standard ANSI/NSF 53 for the reduction of lead.
- Per the standard, the maximum lead allowed through the filter is 0.015 mg/L.
- The flow rate of the Hi-Flow Cartridge is 1.5 gal/min (5.7 l/min).
- Aquifer filter cartridges are made of charcoal carbon block.
Hexavalent Chromium or Benzene Reduction
- Aquifer filter cartridges do not filter out Hexavalent Chromium or Benzene Reduction.
- The micron rating for a fluid filter indicates the ability of the filter to remove contaminants by the size of particles it is exposed to.
- The K-200 and K-201 Aquifer water filters have a Class I Particulate rating, which corresponds to a 0.5 micron rating.
- The Class I test measures the filter's retention of particles between 0.5 and 1 micron, with the NSF requirement being greater than 85% to be in compliance.
- Both the K-200 and K-201 filters have tested to 99.9% or greater.
