 10 Inch Combined Filter (Sediment / Carbon)

The Combined Filter essentially is two different filters in one, a melted spray sediment filter and granular activated carbon (GAC) filter.Melted Spray Sediment Filter.

A Melted-spray filter cartridge has a multi-layer structure and is self-bonded, thus not making use of a chemical binder. After passing through this filter, the water may appear to be clean.

However, looks can be deceiving and most water contaminants are smaller than what our eyes can see. These contaminants may not be removable by the sole use of a sediment filter.

Sediment filters are rated by a micron number. A micron is a unit of length that is equal to one millionth (10-6) of a meter. The Melted spray section of the Combined filter is 5 Microns.

To put this in perspective, look at the size of the following objects:

Granular Activated Carbon (GAC)

The second part of the Combined Filter contains Granular Activated Carbon (GAC).

Granular Active Carbon is carbon that has been treated with oxygen to make it porous, but it has also been broken up into granules to further increase the surface area for chemical bondage to occur.

The water passes through the GAC filter, allowing the organic materials and chlorine to effectively bond with the carbon molecules, thus removing these from the water.
