Type: Heavy metal reduction/removal
Silverline UK Heavy Metal Reduction/Removal filters, are designed to reduce a wide range of contaminants from water, in particular a vast range of heavy metals as well as chemicals and chlorine to improve taste and odour. They are also effective against fluoride and in many cases nitrates too.
The filters use a combination of medias to provide a superior quality of drinking water without stripping the minerals (e.g calcium) from the water.
The activated carbon element of the filters removes/reduces many volatile organic chemicals (VOC), as well as benzene, trihalomethane (THM) compounds, radon, solvents and hundreds of other man-made chemicals found in tap water.
Silverline UK heavy metal reduction filters have been extensively tested for effectiveness, and more details can be found here Testing of filters.
The filters require regular replacement as will become exhausted after a time, which is dependent on the size/capacity of the filter unit.

How it works:
When the filter tap is turned on water is diverted from the cold water connection through the cartridge housing containing filter cartridge. The media within the CRT10H cartridge reduces chemicals (to improve taste and odour) with the added benefit of reducing metals (e.g. aluminium), often found in municipal water. The treated water passes out of the filter and is supplied via the filter tap.
