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 contains almost double the media of the CTO and is very effective at removing all organic chemicals, taste, odour. It is the most effective cartridge on the market for removing THM’s.

It filters to a fine 0.5 microns and is a very dense cartridge compared to others so will restrict water flow more than a GAC or CTO cartridge, so not suitable for use in high flow low pressure situations.  Must have a 1 micron sediment filter before it to prevent sediment clogging the cartridge.

We generally recommend the Matrikx ‘CTO Plus’ cartridge as a replacement as it has a similar chemical removal capacity but allows better water flow with less loss of water pressure.
