Our Big Blue (Fat) 3 Stage Whole House Water Filter is ideal for improving the water quality to your home. This Unit is designed for wall and floor-standing applications.
The 3 Stage Big blue water filter has a flow rate of 2750l/ph and is used to purify the supply of your main incoming water in the supply line. The 3 stage filter removes sediment, odors, chemicals, and non-beneficial bacteria and nitrates ect. from your water. The 3 stage filtration is also used as a pre-filtration for reverse osmosis.
Big Blue water filters allow for minimal pressure reduction and extended filter life.
- Unlike an RO system, this system will NOT reduce Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), thus it keeps the healthy minerals in the water.
- The first stage high capacity polypropylene sediment filter achieves filtration down to 5 microns. The second and third-stage CTO Carbon Block filter uses high-quality coconut shell carbon for maximum filtration efficiency and filter life. Both are tested by an independent third-party to meet NSF/ANSI Standards. Both filters have a capacity of 100,000 gallons of water to supply one full year of clean water for a family of four.
The Big Blue system can handle incoming pressures up to a maximum of 8 bar.
*Filter cartridges need replacement every 6 to 12 months, depending on water quality.
