The AQ-5200 uses 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.
After this quick process of eliminating contaminants, the AQ-5200 will also use catalytic carbon, which targets chlorine and chloramines which are the most present in UK household water. Even though your water will go through a fair few filters, the AQ-5200 will always preserve all the beneficial minerals you get from water, making for a mineral-rich hydrating drink.
Convenient Filter Replacements
Fewer filter replacements are needed with this Aquasana water filter as it has an impressive capacity of 500 gallons. With a flow rate of 0.5 gallons per minute, your filter will only need to be replaced twice every year. You will be able to see when it’s time to change the filter as there is a smart indicator light accompanied by an alerting noise. This indicator means you will never be without filtered water unknowingly.
The replacement filters are also environmentally friendly and limits disposable plastic parts. This offers you a safe way to recycle your used filters, reducing the level of plastic waste. You can easily recycle the drinking filters by removing the ends and recycling the numbered plastic parts. They are composed of 95% biodegradable carbon which can be used either for composting or simply deposited as carbon acts as a positive component to landfill.
