WSI-KXG-45-1005 Jumbo 10" KXG Carbon Cartridge 5m
For removal of chlorine & odors
This is a MatriKX Carbon Block 5 micron Cartridge, specifically designed for removal of chlorine and odors.
A set of 3 of these has been certified by NSF for chlorine removal for 490,000 L (approximate upper limit of annual water consumption in a family residence).
Carbon made from Coconut has superior qualities to standard carbon cartridges. Less channeling which means less by-pass. Greater holding capacity which means chlorine & other chemicals can be extracted from a greater volume of water, which means longer life.
Note that the 'activated carbon' process works when the carbon particles touch the water. Fine silt/mud will coat the carbon and render the cartridge largely ineffective.
When fittings always re-lubricate the sump Oring and threads, to enable easy sealing from hand tightening the sump. This reduces stretching & flattening of the Oring.
Always purge before finishing your systems cartridge change, to avoid unnecessary air spurting through your household taps.
Sumps tighten from the effect of water pump pulsation.
