MultiPure – Clean Water From your Sink
last year I picked up the MultiPure Water Filtration System. I was looking to improve my drinking water situation. Prior to getting the unit I would just drink tap water or buy bottled water. Neither option was something I wanted to do for very long. I really didn’t want to go the Brita filter route, because I feel they don’t filter enough, so I did a bunch of research and decided to get the MultiPure Water Filtration System. My new Multi-Pure Drinking System currently filters out Cysts, Lead, PCBs, MTBE, Mercury, Asbestos, Chlorine, Chloramine, and VOCs. The MultiPure is a top notch filter in my opinion. The MultiPure MPCT is made out of stainless steel and is built rock solid. I opted for the counter top version that hooks up to the facet. The unit took 5 minutes to setup and looks great. The unit retails for $319, but if you look for coupon codes, you can usually save about $50.
Recently the bathroom sink, which doesn’t have a MultiPure system hooked up to it, got totally clogged by debris coming from who knows where. I imagine a lot of people might ingest all sorts of bad contaminates coming up the pipe. luckily the screen catcher caught the debris rather than my stomach. I think now might be a good time to add one to the bathroom.
Here is some interesting facts on water and why you should think about getting a Multipure system.
MultiPure – How the Filter Works
The MultiPure Drinking Water System comes with a replaceable triple-action filter, which has been formulated using materials that will provide the highest quality drinking water without removing the healthful, natural minerals. MultiPure’s carbon block filters combine mechanical filtration, electrokinetic adsorption, and physical adsorption to provide the most effective contaminant reduction possible.
Mechanical Filtration: The filtration process begins with water passing through a graded density 5-micron pre-filter that traps dirt, sand, and particles that affect the taste, odor, and overall appearance of your water. Then the water passes through the highly compacted solid carbon block where direct mechanical interception of particles as small as 0.5 micron occurs. Asbestos, cysts, and turbidity are reduced through mechanical filtration at the sub-micron level.
Electrokinetic Adsorption: The graded density prefilter acquires a positive molecular charge as water passes through it. Since most colloidal contaminants exhibit a negative charge in solution, the media fibers will electrokinetically attract charged colloidal particles too small for removal by mechanical straining.
Physical Adsorption: MultiPure’s highly compacted carbon block filter media is a blend of selected activated carbons and other materials that reduce aesthetic contaminants and health-related contaminants. Many carbons are selected with a high surface area and high retentivity characteristics. The materials are formed into a carbon block, which is densely compacted to provide longer contact time and outstanding performance that cannot be achieved with other filtration technologies. MultiPure’s carbon block filter effectively adsorbs contaminants with health significance, including chlordane, lead, mercury, MTBE, PCBs, Toxaphene, and VOCs, plus aesthetic contaminants such as chlorine and chloramine.
The carbon block filter is engineered so that contaminants removed by mechanical filtration will cause the flow rate to decrease, and the filter will clog. It is recommended that the filter be replaced when the first of the following occurs: (a) annually; (b) the unit’s rated capacity is reached; (c) the flow rate diminishes; (d) the filter becomes saturated with bad tastes and odors.
