Info: 3 Filter, 6 Stage Drinking Water Filtration System to Install Under the Sink

For those living in areas whose municipal water supplies do not add fluoride (or who want it to remain there), the OPUS Freedom-2024 is a low maintenance point-of-use drinking water system to produce great-tasting, contaminant-free water, with low operating costs. It features several types of carbon filters, with progressively finer 5 micron, 1 micron, and .5 micron filtration, providing up to a 99.5% removal rate of chlorine, chloramines, lead, mercury, heavy metals, MTBE, VOCs, giardia, Entamoeba, cryptosporidium, toxoplasma cysts and contaminants, while maintaining desired pH (alkalinity) and dissolved minerals, to produce great-tasting mineral-rich water.

Product Notes:

The OPUS Freedom-2024 water purification system has all the features of the OPUS Advantage-2024, but lacks the latter's fluoride removal filtration component. This system consists of three advanced filtration components providing six stages of filtration, contained in a unit with three vertical filter housings. It also includes two five foot lengths of BPA-free LLDPE 1/4" tubing, a John Guest shut off valve that connects to the water input on the left side of the system to allow for easy filter changes and filter flushing, and a John Guest quick connect for the supplied brushed nickel ceramic disk designer faucet.

Included Components and Specifications:

1. A triple filter wall mount unit for installation under a sink or in a basement, to allow easy access to the system for future filter changes.

2. A 10" long 5 micron carbon block sediment filter, to filter dirt/rust/sediment 5 microns and larger (Stage 1), and to adsorb chlorine and improve taste and odor (Stage 2).

3. A 10" long 1 micron activated catalytic coconut carbon block two-stage filter for chlorine and chloramines, and for any sediment/dirt/rust the first filter may have missed, down to 1 micron. (Stage 3 & 4)

4. A 10" long 0.5 micron microfiltration carbon block two-stage filter that filters particulates 0.5 microns and larger, as well as chlorine, mercury, lead, giardia, cryptosporidium, entamoeba and toxoplasma cysts, including filtration of MTBE and VOCs – contaminants few water filtration systems can remove. (Stage 5 and 6)

5. Quick connects throughout for all ¼" tubing connections, including on the beautiful brushed nickel ceramic disk designer faucet.

6. A brushed nickel, lead-free ceramic disk designer faucet with normal sink installation components, including a John Guest quick connect screwed onto the end, for quick and easy connection of the blue tubing from the output of the system.

7. Two 5 foot lengths of flexible LLDPE ¼" tubing - one blue, and one red. Red is used to connect to the cold water source and to the John Guest ball valve (shut off valve) installed in the input of the system on the left side. The blue tubing is connected to the output on the right side of the system and to the supplied John Guest quick connect that is screwed onto the bottom of the supplied faucet.

8. A John Guest ball valve: a convenient shut off valve that is installed with a short piece of 1/4" tubing on the left side of the system (water input). This shut off valve makes it easy to turn off the water to the system for filter flushing and filter changes.

9. A filter wrench, to enable easy opening of the filter housings (the three vertical components) that hold the filters.
