Triple Under Sink Filter Details

This robust under counter drinking water filter installs under your sink and out of site. It’s the ideal choice for home owners located within Metro Vancouver who want safe, great tasting, on-demand filtered water at a sensible price.

More than convenient, it meets the criteria needed for Metro Vancouver’s unique water conditions – tested protection from local contaminants AND great performance with Vancouver’s challenging turbidity issues.

This under counter system is specifically configured for use with municipally treated water within the Greater Vancouver Water District . As required by provincial drinking water regulations, the Greater Vancouver Water District disinfects our tap water with chlorine (and ozone at Coquitlam) to eliminate harmful bacteria and viruses from our water supply.

Although chlorinating water controls the possibility of water borne disease, it is well documented that drinking and bathing in chlorinated water can have serious health consequences. In addition to introducing harmful chlorinated by-products such as THMs to the water supply, chlorine is also not effective against cryptosporidium cysts (parasites) that are present in our local water.

By combining three different, high quality filters in sequence, this multi-stage system offers comprehensive protection from the known contaminants in Greater Vancouver’s drinking water.

The unit comes with a lead-free fountain, an initial set of cartridges and all hardware and fittings needed for normal installation. It taps into your cold water line to divert water, on-demand, through the three filters which are positioned out of site under your sink. The water is then routed up to the special fountain which installs beside your sink. Whenever you want filtered water, you simply turn on the dedicated tap to direct water through the unit and out the fountain.

It delivers unlimited amounts of great-tasting, safe, clean water you can trust for all your drinking, cooking and food preparation needs. And it won’t strip your water of healthy minerals.

Why three stages of filtration?

Stage 1: 1 micron sediment filter removes silt, algae and fine particulate optimizing the specialized capabilities of the stage 2 and 3 cartridges.

Stage 2: 0.6 micron extruded carbon block tested for greater than 99% removal of chlorine taste and odour plus at least 95% removal of THMs.

Stage 3: 0.5 micron extruded carbon block specially designed and tested for heavy duty lead reduction, turbidity reduction and 99.99% removal of parasite cysts.
