These filters are for use with the AQ-5200 Water Filter System as replacement cartridges to be used when the current cartridges expire.
The AQ-5200 filters use a dual stage process to get high quality filtered water, this is all down to the high-performing NSF certified Claryum filters. These unique filters use a 3 stage process which enables the water filter to eradicate 68 chemicals, heavy particulates and dangerous metals including lead. The water first enters the activated carbon filter where chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs and MTBE will be filtered out.
The second stage involves the water being submerged into an Ion-Exchange process which removes dangerous metals such as mercury and lead, it then replaces those metals with potassium. The final stage of the 3 stage water filtration is the Sub-Micron Mechanical Filter, which captures asbestos, microscopic organisms like cryptosporidium and giardia which are two common water-borne parasites.
