Reverse Osmosis product water is more acidic due to it's purity. By the time the water is processed through the various stages, after the reverse osmosis stage, minerals etc has been removed. To replenish necessary minerals, an alkaline filter is recommended. 5th stage of this system is an alkaline filter, which replaces calcium, magnesium, sodium potassium ion etc, taken away during the purification process.The 6th stage is an inline carbon filter that polishes the water for a sparkling taste. This unit contains the following. 2 SEDIMENT FILTERS 5 MICRON.
1 INLINE POST CARBON FILTER. 1 AUTOMATIC SHUT OFF VALVE. 1 STORAGE TANK 1/4 NPT 6.5 GALLONS STORAGE CAPACITY 5.2 GALLON 1 RO FAUCET. 1 CHECK VALVE ON MEMBRANE HOUSING. 1st Stage - All of our sediment filters use multi-gradient spun polypropylene filter cartridges.
These cartridges use the entire depth of their media by trapping the largest sediment particles on the outside of the filter, then gradually stepping down the size of particles they will reject as the water moves closer to the core of the filter. The result is longer filter life, greater dirt-holding capacity, higher flow rates, and remarkably low pressure drop. The 100% pure polypropylene media is highly resistant to bacteria and chemicals, making this an excellent choice for both well water and municipal water treatment applications. 2nd Stage - Carbon is a substance that has a long history of being used to absorb impurities and is perhaps the most powerful absorbent known to man.
One pound of carbon contains a surface area of roughly 125 acres and can absorb literally thousands of different chemicals. Activated carbon which has a slight electro-positive charge added to it, making it even more attractive to chemicals and impurities. As the water passes over the positively charged carbon surface, the negative ions of the of the contaminants are drawn to the surface of the carbon granules. Stage - With carbon block filters, water is forced through the pores of the densely compacted carbon block, where a combination of mechanical filtration, electrokinetic adsorption, and physical/ chemical adsorption take place to reduce a wide range of contaminants.
Solid Carbon Block technology can reduce chlorine, taste and odor problems, particulate matter, and a wide range of contaminants of health concern -- cysts (cryptosporidium and giardia), VOCs (pesticides, herbicides, and chemicals), certain endocrine disrupters, Trihalomethanes (cancer-causing disinfection by-products), heavy metals (lead, mercury), turbidity, MTBE, Chloramines and asbestos. Solid carbon block filters do not remove healthful, naturally-occurring minerals.

To buffer this back to a natural Alkaline Calcium ionized water. The filter gives back minerals such as ionized Calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium. Which was eliminated by the R.
Post Carbon Filter - A final Polishing step that ensues a sparkling clean and pure water taste. The feed water valve can be either the saddle valve or the feed water adapter depending on the model. This item ships in 2 packages.
