Stage 1: Pre-Filter
This filter is designed to remove dirt, rust, sediment, and other contaminants (including cysts and some bacteria) and to prevent these contaminants from affecting the efficiency and longevity of the two stage KDF Media/Granulated Activated Carbon filter (Stage 2 & 3), and the .5 micron MTBE/VOC chlorine, lead, mercury filter in Stage 4. In normal use replace every 6-12 months. Change this filter every six months, or sooner if the water flow at the faucet drops significantly. Two 1 Micron Filters are supplied.

A 3 lb KDF / 0.6 lb Granulated Activated Carbon filter removes up to 99% of chlorine, heavy metals, silver, aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, copper, iron, nickel, zinc, lead, chromium, barium, hydrogen sulfide, radon, selenium, trihalomethanes, manganese, mercury, chloroform, trichlorethane, lindane, pesticides, fungicides, bad tastes and odors.
Stage 4 & 5: This dual stage filter is the rightmost vertical stage of the unit. It consists of a 0.5 micron filter cartridge that's protected by Endurawrap™, to significantly increase the life of the cartridge by trapping sediment that typically plugs carbon cartridges. This filter provides 99% removal of heavy metals, chlorine, mercury, and lead, including filtration of MTBE and VOCs, Cryptosporidium, Giardia, Entamoeba and Toxoplasma cysts.
