The Premium 10 Stage Water Filter contains the premier, patented, 10-Stage contaminant removing filter. It lasts three times longer than other common carbon block filters (1500 gallons versus 500 gallons). Filter Life for the cartridge is approx. 1500 gallons, which equals approx. 1 to 1 1/2 years of average use by a family of four.
The Premium 10 Stage Water Filter removes or greatly reduces the following: chlorine, cancer causing organic/chlorine compounds called trihalomethanes (THM), bad odors, e.g., hydrogen sulfide which gives water a rotten egg smell, pesticides, herbicides, PCB's, toxic heavy metals i.e., lead, cadmium, organic arsenic, asbestos, micro-organisms (protozoa and cysts) such as cryptosporidium and giardia, and dozens of other lesser known organic contaminants.
Note: It is increasingly important to use filtered water for a variety of kitchen needs besides drinking water. For example, more and more imported fruits and vegetables have been found to have giardia or cryptosporidium on them plus these hard shelled cysts can be present in your water supply. Filtered water is recommended for rice and pasta since boiling does not remove chlorine from water.

Commonly Asked 10-Stage Water Filter Questions-
How Long Does the Replacable Filter Cartridge Last?
Each Filter cartridge should be changed after 1500 gallons. This would be approximately one year for a family of four, assuming they each drank 1/2 gal. a day and they wash fruits and vegetables in filtered water.
How do I change my water filter cartridge?
Unlike many brands, you do not have to throw the whole system away. You simply unscrew the housing, remove the old cartridge and drop in a new water filter cartridge. To make it easier to open your housing, soak the entire unit in hot water (1 gallon) and white vinegar (1 tablespoon) for about 10-15 min. Take the unit out while it is still hot and turn the housing counter-clockwise. Replacement cartridges are available from www.seacoastvitamins.com
What does the Premium 10 Stage Water Filter leave in the water?
Inert minerals such as magnesium, potassium, and chlorides and fluoride. Some people are concerned about fluoride. In these cases where a consumer wants fluoride removed, we recommend New Wave Enviro's Reverse Osmosis System.
