New Wave Enviro 10 Stage Water Filter -- 1 Filter

Maximum Protection. Powerful! Removes Major Contaminants Well Below Even the EPA's Strictest Requirements. There's 300 five-gallon bottles in every 10-Stage filter! That means eleven 8 oz. glasses a day all year for each member of a household of six! You'll have an instant supply of fresh filtered water all year long. And 10-Stage replacement filters cost only about 4 cents a gallon that's about 1/4th the cost of all of the other quality national brands.  . Safe pure good tasting water is important for more than just drinking. Makes your coffee tea and juice drinks safe and bright tasting. Boiling can help make your water safer but it doesn't remove the chlorine. The 10-Stage does both. The ideal and economical way to rinse away the pesticides and the contaminants from all your fresh produce. Perfect for pasta cooking and pasta rinsing. In fact all your cooking will benefit from clean fresh 10-Stage water for the best taste. Treat your pets to pure good tasting water and give your delicate fish friends a happy chlorine free home. 10-Stages of Patented Premium Filter Protection From:. Lead Giardia Cryptosporidium Floating Solids Asbestos Pesticides Herbicides Chlorine Trihalomethanes PBC's Organic Arsenic and Mercury...And it is Bacteriostatic! Stage 1: A 30 micron filter pad. -- Traps larger solids (sediments) such as rust. Stage 2: 8 ounces of KDF-55 this is a patented alloy that removes free chlorine and some heavy metals. -- It prolongs the life of the filter and is an excellent Bacteriostat. Stage 3: A 10 micron filter pad. -- Removes smaller floating solids and separates the layers to preserve their integrity. Stage 4: 30 cubic inches of ultra fine mesh coconut shell activated carbon. -- Carbon has long been accepted by the EPA and other water experts as the premier cost effective way to remove chlorine bad odor and color from drinking water. Carbon also removes other organic contaminants such as pesticides herbicides organic arsenic and mercury and trihalomethanes. Stage 5: 1 10 micron filter pad. -- For fine sediment removal. Stage 6: 1.3 oz. of Cation exchange resin. -- This resin has an exceptional affinity for lead and therefore removes lead to below minimum standards. Stage 7: A thirty micron filter pad -- Provides an additional buffer against floating sediment of any kind. Stage 8: 3.5 oz. ultra fine G.A.C. -- This has long been accepted by the EPA and others as the premier cost effective way to remove chlorine bad odor and color from drinking water. G.A.C. also removes organic contaminants such as pesticides herbicides and trihalomethanes. Stage 9: 2 oz. of calcite. -- Calcite balances the water's pH to neutral. When the water is highly acidic calcite lowers the acidity and increases alkalinity which many nutritionists recommend. When the water is too alkaline calcite lowers the pH to neutral. Stage 10: a one micron filter -- Removes any remaining floating particles and creates a solid barrier against organisms larger than 1 micron such as cysts and protozoa (causes giardia and cryptosporidium) and gives the filtered water a sparkling clarity.

Passed blind taste test.
 June 21, 2013
"A water sample was saved from our old 2-stage filter and another water sample was taken with this new filter after it was installed. Two of us tasted the samples and the water in the orange glass was clearly better tasting than the water in the white glass. Then we were told the orange glass was from the new filter. It won the blind taste test. Other advantages: It sits on the side of the sink instead of getting in the way hanging off of the faucet. The stream flow is heavier so it saves time. The cost per treated gallon is less. And the replacement filter doesn't have to be changed as often."

Hmm
 April 27, 2010
"Does not mention fluoride removal. To remove fluoride, a special step is required. Thus, to get the fluoride out, one would need to follow with distillation via a water distiller. There is a six stage filter by Crystal Quest, available at their website, that will get the fluoride out. Fluoride is not the beneficial mineral that we're led to believe."

Great filter - great price
 April 22, 2010
"The filter is very easy to set up and use, and it puts out good-tasting water. The replaceable cartridge lasts a very long time, in a small household, anyway. For one or two people, it only has to be changed about once a year."
