Welcome to Gary's Vitamin Closet!
Message from Dr. Roy Speiser:
Please note that because the Imperial Ultra-Ceramic with Metalgon™ has a smaller pore size, the flow rate will be approximately 20-30% slower than the standard ceramic filter. This allows for more contact time with the filter to remove higher levels of parasites and bacteria, as well as additonal chemicals. Key Features: -Sub-Micron Particulate Reduction @ 0.3 Microns -Enhanced Parasite and Bacteria Removal -Reduced Turbidity and Bad Taste -Cleanable to restore flow rate -Durable Polypropylene Housing -Ceramic Filter meets NSF Standard 42 for particulate reduction -Bacteriostatic to inhibit re-growth of bacteria - Chlorine & Chloramines -THM and HAA Reduction -Fluoride & Heavy Metal Reduction Replacing Filter: -Filter should be replaced every 6 months for a family of 3-4.
