The filters can block and remove a lot of different contaminants from the water. These contaminants include but are not limited to chromium, chlorine, chloramines, fluoride, lead, mercury, and more.
The smallest filter layer in the cartridge has 2-micron pores. All the particles larger than 2 microns will be removed from your drinking water. This is a great way to filter out the contaminants in your water, and it’s usually achieved only by reverse osmosis or whole house water filters.
Unlike other water filters, this one is capable of maintaining the good minerals in the water. The calcium and magnesium compounds won’t be blocked by the filter, so you will have a higher mineral intake.
