Countertop, Under-counter & Whole House Well Water Filters

We offer two filter configurations suitable for filtering well water that contains iron and hydrogen sulfide.  Both filters use our Doulton Silver Steraysl ceramic filter for removing 99.9 percent of bacteria, cysts and sediment down to 0.5 micron, with an absolute filtration of 0.9 microns and our KDF/GAC cartridge for removing iron, hydrogen sulfite, heavy metals (lead), inorganic arsenic, VOCs, THMs, chemicals and pesticides. For a well system, our KDF/GAC cartridge should be replaced yearly and our ceramic cartridge can last 3 years and can be cleaned up to 40 times.
