The CBC  cartridge is a top quality ‘Carbon Block’ Cartridge. Compared to GAC cartridges which use loose activated carbon (usually from coconut fibre) this cartridge has a greater surface area and ability to remove fine chemicals and will not ‘channel’ the water as granulated cartridges do. It is made by global giant Pentair from America and has been the industry leader for over 25 years.

It is very effective at removing all organic chemicals, taste, odour and is the most effective cartridge on the market for removing THM’s.  It will reduce lead and Metals, but is not as effective as the CBR2 or GAC/KDF cartridges.

Carbon block cartridges are the most common cartridges used world wide and we believe this is the highest quality ‘Block’ cartridge available.

System come standard with the chrome diverter valve that screws on to most kitchen mixer taps. This allows easy operation by moving a lever sideways to “divert” the water from the tap through the purifier. Simply turn the lever downwards to send the unfiltered water into the sink for washing dishes etc.

Two universal rubber push on bulbs are available where there is no tap thread, such as the older style separate hot and cold taps from the 1950s to 1970s.  The large UR bulb has an expanding  mouth of 15 to over 20 mm and  fits most taps, but being a larger mouth, needs to be held onto the tap when in use.

The smaller rubber bulb fits taps up to 18 mm diametre and has a series of ribs to hold onto the tap, so has a firmer fit.  Please check the options when ordering.
