GAC will reduce chlorine, unpleasant taste, odor, and organic matter from water. KDF85 is 85% copper and 15% Zinc. KDF media is effective in the removal of lead, pesticides, rust, hydrogen sulfide, iron, nickel, chromium, cadmium, calcium, aluminum, mercury, and arsenic. KDF is bacteriostatic and it is known to control bacteria growth and kill algae and fungi.
Normally, the cartridge is installed after a sediment filter cartridge. This cartridge should be installed with the gasket end against the screw cap. Monitoring chlorine residual in treated water is the best way to know when the media was exhausted. When chlorine is detected in filtered water, the cartridge can be replaced.
