APEC WFS-1000 Review – 3 Stage

Main Properties

This APEC system consists of long-lasting premium filters that are designed to work with both tap and well water. Like other similar products, this one also features a 3-staged filtration process. It is the job of the sediment filter to trap rust, dust, and particles – this is considered to be the first filtration stage. The first carbon block (resembling the second stage) eliminates taste, odor, and chemicals. The second carbon block (or the third stage) also removes chemicals, taste, and odor, but at the same time, it eliminates colors, VOCs, and cloudiness.

There is also an additional stage that is responsible for removing heavy metals, chemicals, radioactive particles, salts, viruses, and even fine pollutants unless they are smaller than 0,0001 microns. After all these processes, it is time for the polishing part. Reportedly, APEC filters last longer than low-capacity ones. Another benefit is that you need to replace these filters only once a year, whereas the regular ones require more frequent changes – approximately twice a year.

Another one of the definite advantages of this system is its high-quality faucet. First of all, it has a lead-free spotless chrome finish. Then this faucet can rotate in 360 degrees for your convenience. It also has a smooth disk valve so you can easily adjust the level of heat which you receive. So you won’t accidentally get burnt.

Unlike other systems, this powerful under sink water filter offers good pressure from 20 to 85 psi even though the water has to go through three filters. Most of the other units do purify water, but they reduce the pressure drastically. This system has special FDA certified tubing which makes sure that your water is chlorine-free, safe, and odorless.
