Crystal: a free-standing filter for countertop use which is easily installed onto the existing cold water or mixer faucet via a diverter valve.
Molded from attractive plastic, this filter needs no permanent modifications to the kitchen plumbing, allowing filtered or unfiltered water to be drawn from the existing faucet at the press of a button.
Candles options: the a.m. filter can be supplied with a ceramic candle, tailored to the amount of protection you decide is necessary.

Accessories and spare parts:
SUPERSTERASYL is a ceramic candle with granular carbon which, thanks to its porous structure, allows to reach a filtration below a micron. This allows to remove 99.99% of the suspended solid particles and bacteria that are formed in the water up to 0.9 microns (see table).
The element is self-sterilizing as it incorporates in the ceramic a carefully dosed silver compound in compliance with the "WHO" and "EPA" standards. The candle also contains activated ganular carbon to improve color, taste and smell of drinking water. The duration of the candle is about 6 months or about Lt. 1500.
The SUPERCARB candle guarantees the same degree of filtration of the ULTRACARB cartridge in those areas where toxic lead is not a problem as this candle does not contain the lead reduction compound. However its ability to remove chlorine, unpleasant tastes and odors is increased up to 3700 liters (chlorine concentration 2 ppm).
The ULTRACARB candle offers the complete protection given by the external ceramic barrier, designed to remove harmful particles such as, for example, Cryptosporidium and Giardia and other solid substances, together with the ability of charbons to remove chlorine and other unpleasant flavors, with the further benefit of reducing the concentration of toxic lead to a concentration of 150ppb for about 6 months, or 2200 liters, thanks to the lead reduction compound.
