Granulated Activated Carbon Filter
Size: 20″ x 4.5″ Chlorine, taste and odour reduction. Low pressure drop. 5 Micron
Suitable for chlorinated mains water / town water supplies only.
The GAC Cartridge (Granular Activated Carbon) is simply carbon in the form of granules. This increases the surface area available for absorption of the unwanted chemicals within your water supply (Chlorine, taste and odour reduction).
Above all, filters will need to be replaced between 6-12 months – depending on quality of water.

The micron rating of a filter cartridge determines the ability of the filter’s media to remove contaminants by the size of particles it is exposed to. For example, a filter that is marked or rated “5 micron” has some capability to capture particles as small as 5 micrometers. However, the micron rating does not determine the exact efficiency of contaminant holding capability of the filter.
