Product Description: Tap water contains many substances invisible to the naked eye. These substances include chlorine, ions of dissolved heavy metals, nitrates, pesticides and many others. Drinking water with these substances over a prolonged period of time may present many health risks. Chlorine and organochlorine substances may increase the risk of cardiovascular, oncological and allergic diseases. Ions of heavy metals block the membranes of the cell walls and do not allow them to function normally. The Barrier Standard relplacement filter cartridge treats water reducing substances such as aesthetic chlorine, copper, mercury and cadmium making it safer and healthier for drinking while reducing bad odor and taste.
Replacement filter cartridge compatibility
The enclosed replacement filter cartridge fits all models of Barrier pitchers. It is intended only for the treatment of tap water for drinking purposes from organic and inorganic substances such as aesthetic chlorine, copper, mercury and cadmium while reducing bad odor and improving taste.
Cleaning Area: Removes chloroform, lead, copper, mercury, cadmium,, benzene, antibiotic, petroleum contaminants, phenol, aluminum, surfactants, DDT, and lindane.
Filter Media: * The high quality coconut activated carbon coupled with our Unique Silver Impregnated Carbon Technology (USCIT) filter out active chlorine, organic and chlorinated hydrogen impurities, pesticides, and petroleum products, dissolved contaminants and reduces bad odor and taste. The treatment of silver with the activated carbon reduces the possibility of bacterial reproduction within the filter cartridge itself.
* High efficient ionic-exchange resin cleanses water of ions of toxic materials and decreases hardness of water.
* The specially sized flow through filter opening ensures the constant velocity of water flowing through the filter. This guarantees that the highest quality of water is achieved and maintained.
Filter Change: Replacement filter cartridge life is greater than most other filter brands. Actual volume may vary based upon local water quality (volume is based on the NSF/ANSI 42 & 53 Standards). Barrier recommends changing the replacement filter cartridge every 2 months. Regular replacement of the filter guarantees that you will always have great tasting healthier water.
1. Unscrew the cartridge from the funnel reservoir.
2. Screw the new cartridge into the funnel reservoir.
3. Fill the funnel reservoir with cold water. Wait for the water to filter into the pitcher. Discard the water and repeat the process one additional time. This will rinse away any loose particles and will prepare the filter for use.
