Description: This water purifier uses 100% NSF certified granular activated carbon (GAC) and KDF to remove chlorine over 99% and substantially reduce up to 99% of lead, pesticides, herbicides, VOCs, benzene, while eliminating bad tastes and odors. An amazing 12,000 gallon rating makes this system the most cost effective available today. The ceramic pre-filter filters 99.99% of harmful bacteria, as well as cysts like cryptosporidium and Giardia. This filter is an Absolute 0.4 micron for the finest filtering of tiny bacteria; most other ceramics are 0.5 micron nominal (or 0.9 micron absolute). The ceramic filter may be periodically cleaned and will last up to 3 years before needing replacement. The UCD-12C provides crystal clear, pure drinking water while maintaining healthy minerals such as Calcium, Potassium and Magnesium.

System comes complete with a do-it-yourself easy installation kit and a stainless steel faucet spigot; designer faucets are available below. Our installation kit includes a "Ball Valve Assembly" that requires no piercing of your water pipe unlike most other installation kits that use a saddle tap which makes a pin-hole in your water pipe, inviting leaks.

there is also the option of ordering a flouride filter as the second filter or third .

PuriTec UCT-F for fluoride filtration
Flouride removal filter -Contains fine-mesh pre-conditioned Activated Alumina
to reduce fluorides below 0.5 ppm. Its capacity is up to 11,000 ppm with
effluent levels below 0.2 ppm from 10 ppm feed. Note: high pH and high
bicarbonate levels reduce the capacity - above 100 ppm bicarbonate, reduce
by 50%; above 200 ppm, reduce by 75%. Also effectively removes arsenic.
