Info: Water Purification System with KDF 85 Media for Iron or Chloramine

If you're considering buying the OPUS Whole House Water Purification System, but live in an area with water high in iron or where your municipal water supply is treated with chloramines (a combination of chlorine and ammonia) rather than straight chlorine, this is the model you need. With all the other features of the Model 55, this model is equipped with KDF 85 media particularly designed for the removal of iron and chloramines. This filter can also be upgraded to provide sterilization for microbiologically unsafe water through a UV-C sterilization unit.

Product Notes:

Whole-house systems are large, heavy shipments. Shipping is not included for this item, as whole house systems are large and heavy. After your order is placed, we will inform you of the cost to ship, and will only ship once you approve the shipping cost.

Included Components:

* Triple filter 20" housing with three pressure gauges like the one shown here. This housing is designed to be installed where water enters the building, usually right after the water meter.

* Stage 1 - 20" 20 Micron Pleated Filter. This filter is designed to remove dirt, rust, sediment, and particulate matter 20 microns and larger, and also to lengthen the life of the 5 micron pleated filter in Stage 2.

* Stage 2 - 20" 5 Micron Pleated Filter. This filter is designed to remove dirt, rust, sediment and particulate matter 5 microns and larger, and to ensure the final KDF/GAC filter works optimally for 100,000 gallons.

* Stage 3 & 4 - 20" KDF Media combined with granulated activated charcoal
KDF Media is a zinc/copper formulation that utilizes the principle of electrochemical oxidation reduction (more commonly known as the redox process or redox reaction) to eliminate bad tastes and odors, and water contaminants including lead, chlorine, heavy metals, silver, aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, copper, iron, nickel, zinc, chromium, barium, hydrogen sulfide, radon, selenium, mercury, trihalomethanes, algae, manganese, chloroform, trichloroethane, lindane, pesticides, fungi.

* A filter wrench is also included for easy removal of the housing chambers for filter changes.
