Omnipure Carbon Water Filter Cartridge + Sediment Filter
A sediment filter`s main purpose is to remove particulates from water. It is rated by a micron number which refers to the size of the particles that the filter will trap. These are often required as a pre-treatment for other types of treatment such as reverse osmosis and carbon filtration. Keep in mind that sediment filters only reduce particulates. They do not remove chemicals or make the water taste or smell better.
The carbon water filter cartridge is a standard size 10″ x 2.5″ 100% coconut carbon (not a coconut/coal blend) for sweeter tasting water. Removes chlorine, taste, cysts and odours.
