Info: 3 Filter, 4 Stage Countertop Water Purifier
Shipping included in Canada! The Integrity Advantage Triple Countertop Water Filtration system provides great-tasting, ultra-pure, fluoride-free mineral water without altering its alkalinity or pH level. It is designed for those who live in condominiums, apartments or rental homes where permanent water filtration systems cannot be installed, or for those who want a portable solution (if you may be moving, or would like to use it in more than one location), and whose water supplies are being treated with chlorine.*
You don't need any drilling or a plumber to install an OPUS Integrity system: simply twist its included diverter valve onto your existing faucet and depress its button to send the water over to the filtration unit when you want it purified, and the system's built-in spout dispenses clean drinking or cooking water whenever you want.
* This unit is not designed for municipalities which treat their water with chloramine: please see the Integrity Triple Advantage for Chloramine unit, for that.

• 3 year limited warranty if all filters are changed annually. Due to differences in sediment levels for some water sources, the 5 micron filter may need to be changed more often than that; replace it if the water flow drops to an unacceptable speed.

Stage 1: Pre-Filter

In normal use replace every 6-12 months. If the water flow at the faucet drops significantly, it is time to replace this filter.
Stage 2: Fluoride Filtration
Bone Char provides effective removal of fluoride and arsenic by adsorption.
Stage 3 & 4:
This dual stage filter is the rightmost vertical stage of the unit, and consists of a 0.5 micron carbon filter that has multiple functions, including:
