Filter Capacity: 600 gallons
The effectiveness of any drinking water treatment device is measured by the performance of its filter. A close review of drinking water treatment unit certifications shows that Solid Carbon Block filters are the most effective for reducing a wide range of contaminants, including those that may be found in groundwater. Certain drinking water treatment units utilizing Solid Carbon Block filters have been tested and certified to reduce upwards of 65 contaminants.
Solid carbon block filter technology was developed by Multipure in the early 1970s for the purpose of treating water contaminants for health and aesthetic reasons. This technology combines mechanical filtration, chemical reaction, and physical adsorption into a single device to reduce a broad spectrum of harmful contaminants.
Activated carbon is the primary raw material used in Solid Carbon Block filters. These activated carbons are effective in reducing disinfection by-products (DBPs), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), PCBs, MTBE, and other contaminants.
Summary. Solid carbon block filters effectively treat contaminants such as lead, chlorine, benzene, MTBE, chloramines, and PCBs. Solid carbon block filters will likely prove capable of significantly reducing contaminants that may be found in drinking water supplies in the future, such as antibiotics, drugs, and other personal care products. The effectiveness of Solid Carbon Block filters in treating a broad spectrum of contaminants of aesthetic as well as health concern makes it the bona fide technology of choice consumers throughout the country.

The Aquaperform features a stainless steel housing and is designed for additional contaminant reduction performance, adding Arsenic V to its list of filtered contaminants. This unit sits on your counter next to the sink with an included acrylic base. It connects to your existing faucet using a dual-hose diverter valve that allows you to easily switch from filtered to unfiltered water.
The countertop Aquaversa is generally intended for use where below-sink installation restrictions are present (e.g., apartment use or lack of below-sink space), although it can be converted for below sink use with additional parts.
