Standard (S) reduction/removal filters are a general purpose filter which use Granular Activated Carbon media. They are effective at reducing chemicals (including herbicides and pesticides) and chlorine to improve water taste and odour.
Activated carbon filters remove/reduce 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. They are not designed for and not generally effective at removing metals or sediment.
The filters require regular replacement as will become exhausted after a time, which is dependent on the size/capacity of the filter unit.
Comes with a choice of tap, please see images above.
Max flow: 6 pints per minute Max pressure: 100 psi Max temp: 70°C Screen rating: 1 micron Expected life: 6 Months

The under counter filter system (UC06S), comprising filter cylinder, bracket and fitting kit is normally installed under the kitchen sink to provide tasty wholesome drinking water.
The fitting kit consists of long reach tap, suitable for fixing to the sink or adjacent work top and self piercing valve (with non return valve to comply with water byelaws) for connection to the cold water supply. Both components have tubes already attached to make plumbing really simple so there is no need for expensive plumbing costs.
How it works: When the filter tap is turned on water is diverted from the cold water connection into the bottom of the filter cylinder. The water rises up through the media under mains pressure where the carbon within reduces the chlorine and chemical contaminants. The water passes out of the top of the filter and is dispensed via the filter tap.
