- Sediment filter removes sediment, rust and other microscopic debris from inlet.
- Solid activated carbon block cartridge remove chlorine, bad tastes and odors, pesticides and carcinogenic impurities.
- Post carbon filter removes organics, improves taste and odor in drinking water.
The WECO TINY reverse osmosis filtration system is the ideal water purification filter for home, office, health clubs, juice bars, coffee shops or anywhere safe, fresh-tasting water is needed. The WECO reverse osmosis system uses separate individual stages of water filtration to create pure, refreshing drinking water. The process starts by pre-filtering the water through a sediment filter. Prefiltration removes tiny particles that can get into the water supply. These include iron oxide (rust), silt, sand grains and insect parts. This filtering stage protects your family from drinking sediment and prevents the filtration system from clogging. The sediment pre-filter is contained in a clear, see-through filter housing, making it easy for you to see when the filter needs to be replaced. No need to guess! For the 2nd stage, the water flows through a 5-micron activated carbon block cartridge. This compressed activated carbon block filter removes taste and odor-causing chemicals like chlorine, chloramine and rotten-egg (hydrogen sulfide) and musty odors. The chlorine disinfection process is known to create cancer-causing byproducts in the water. These carcinogens, called THMs, are removed by the activated carbon block filter. The carbon cartridge also removes organic contaminants like herbicides, insecticides and industrial chemicals that seep into groundwater. But that’s not all. The next filtration stage involves the reverse osmosis (RO) process. Tap water is “squeezed” through a special Thin Film Composite (TFC) semi-permeable membrane. Heavy metals, like lead, cadmium and mercury, are removed while purified water passes through. The RO process also removes salts, nitrate, fluoride, radon and benzene. The WECO encapsulated reverse osmosis membrane is NSF-certified and features outstanding efficiency. Other reverse osmosis filters can waste up to 10 gallons of water for every gallon of pure water made. The WECO high-efficiency RO membrane produces only one gallon of waste water for each gallon of purified water. This saves you money, reduces waste water, conserves resources and helps the environment. The encapsulated membrane housing makes it easy to replace the membrane when the need arises. No more complicated disassembly of the filtration system, no more leaks and no tools are necessary.
