If you have a 3-canister CHLORAMINE FLUORIDE PLUS unit from us, this is the bundle of the THREE replacement filters you need.
CHANGE THIS SET OF THREE ONCE A YEAR.
REPLACE THE CANISTER O-RINGS EVERY 4 YEARS FOR UNDER SINK, EVERY 6 YEARS FOR COUNTERTOP. (Click the links)
THESE ARE YOUR FILTERS:
The Chloramine filter (CR-1) targets chloramine, using kdf-85 and catalytic carbon, both of which are optimized for removal of chloramine. It is however, an excellent wide-spectrum filter as well, filtering hundreds of contaminants. CR-1 CHANGE THE CHLORAMINE CARTRIDGE ONCE A YEAR.
The fluoride cartridge (either FR-1 or BC-1) removes fluoride, and has a sediment filter. Select the activated alumina (FR-1) or the calcium-based carbon (BC-1). Both options for fluoride removal, activated alumina and calcium-based carbon, do an excellent job. It’s just a personal choice; we do not recommend one over the other. Vegetarians will prefer Activated Alumina.
CHANGE THE FLUORIDE CARTRIDGE EVERY SIX MONTHS. We suggest that you add the additional fluoride cartridge to your order to save on shipping, and so you’ll have the filters you need for a full year.
The third cartridge (last in line as the water flows) is the wide-spectrum KR-10A,
deep- filtering replacement filter cartridge filter. KR-101A (wide-spectrum with microfiber + cyst filtration.) Click this link to our blog on microfibers.
It includes a fine-mesh filter, copper-zinc kdf-55, and granulated carbon filtering media. It filters hundreds of contaminants, including chemical- and organic-based, and heavy metals. There is an option to get a KR-101N wide-spectrum which does the same except for microfiber and cyst filtration. The KR-101A is preferred and recommended in this set.
From The Story of Stuff:“Microfibers are showing up in even more unexpected places. Recently, we commissioned a lab to look for microfibers in bottled water – and we could hardly believe what we found.1 Out of 20 bottled water brands we tested, all but one contained plastic microfibers. Previous studies have also found plastic microfibers in tap water.2 Scientists even warn that we’re likely breathing in these plastic microparticles!3″
