An alkaline filter cartridge (2.5" dia x 10" L) that goes into a 10" standard filter housing. This filter cartridge by EDEN has a service life of one year or 2,000 gallons and a maximum flow rate of 0.5 GPM. The weight of the filter is 1 lb 15 oz.
The filter contains a special blend of media that includes:
ceramic balls with bioenergy, far infrared, mineral and alkaline properties, mineral stones, and magnesium oxide media that improves taste and lowers the Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) of water.
The filter re-mineralizes and raises the pH of your purified water by at least 1.5 to 2.5 points. This alkaline antioxidant filter provides abundant Active Hydrogen. Initial testing of pH showed a reading of 9.5. To add this filter cartridge to a reverse osmosis (RO) system, you need a standard housing with fittings. This filter is incorporated in the Eden RO system, RO5-099-ALK. Purified water, after going through the alkaline-mineral-ORP media, will have a higher pH, higher mineral content, and lower ORP.
When using this filer with an existing RO system as a final filtration stage before the faucet, it is not uncommon for some customers to complain about taste at first. We recommend adding bleach (1 tsp) to the inlet of the filter housing to disinfect the media. This may be needed only once at first use. To accomplish this goal, some people find ADMF0404 fitting useful.
Media in filter housing can be mixed if the partition moves. The separation of the different media is meant for appearance only. As for function, it will work perfectly as water flows and comes into contact with media balls regardless of their position. We had more partitions in the past and they will be eliminated in future versions.
