Product Description: The CT-2KF works on any home or office sink and filters up to 10,000 gallons of cold water on demand! The first housing uses a combination of patented trace minerals (Copper-Zinc) which has been tested to NSF standard 42 and 61, and coconut shell carbon. This filter will remove and/or reduce chlorine, sediment, algae, molds, scale, bad taste, odors, and other undesirable contaminants that may effect the quality of your water supply. And unlike carbon only filters, bacteria can't grow inside the bacteriostatic CuZn filters. The second housing is filled with a media designed to remove fluoride.This system installs in minutes by hooking up the diverter to the end of your kitchen sink faucet. Just pull a pin and get CuZn pure water whenever you choose.
Specifications: * The housings for both the carbon and fluoride filters are 13.5 inches high, 6 inches deep and 11 inches in diameter.
* Both housings are made of ABS non-leaching plastic and comes with a swivel spout.
Cleaning Area: * The carbon filter will filter out more than 600 contaminants including chlorine, lead, heavy metals, trihalomethanes, herbicides, pesticides, sediment, algae, molds, scale, bad tastes and odors.
* The flow rate is 3/4 of a gallon per minute and will filter up to 8,000 gallons of water.
* The fluoride filter flow rate is 1 gallon per minute and removes 2500 parts per billion.
Filter Media: * The KDF filter uses a combination of patented trace minerals (Copper-Zinc) which has been tested to NSF standard 42 and 61, and coconut shell carbon.
* Unlike carbon only filters, bacteria can't grow inside the bacteriostatic CuZn filters.
* The water purifier comes standard with the KR-101N carbon filter which has non-cyst removal and a 5 micron average sediment removal.
* The fluoride filter is activated alumina which is a granular, highly porous and an absorptive form of aluminum oxide.
* The water purifier is a 4 stage purification system.
* Stage one is a 100 micron pre-filter.
* Stage two is a special fine mesh activated alumina that has been pre-conditioned specifically for single use cartridge applications. Laboratory evaluations have demonstrated that this preconditioning can double the filterís capacity, but high pH, high bicarbonate levels and high flow rates will reduce this capacity.
* Stage three is a 50-micron post-filter.
* The fourth stage is the KDF and carbon filter.
Filter Change: The KR-101N carbon filter and the fluoride filter should be changed once a year.
Warranty: There is a 1-year manufacturer warranty on the cartridge and a 5-year pro-rated warranty on housing only.

In the event the unit is damaged or defective, please save all packing material and contact our Customer Service Department immediately for further instructions.
Warnings: Activated alumina filters have one duty; to remove fluoride from water, but there is a tradeoff. Although an activated alumina filter lowers fluoride and arsenic levels quite well, it adds a little bit of aluminum to the water. Some studies suggest that aluminum may contribute to the onset of Alzheimerís disease or exacerbate it.
