System 3008 (up to 2 GPM)


System 3008

Bottled water quality (0.5 micron) filtration for applications up to 2 GPM:  standard-flow showers, tapping off risers etc.

Please note:  For complete filtration of a shower or similar you will need two systems, one each for hot and cold.  Hot and cold water supplies must be filtered and thereafter directed separately.  The hot and cold filters are identical in construction. 

For flow rates higher than the max flow rate per system, the solution is to manifold two or more of each (hot and/or cold).

The high-flow carbon block cartridge used in Better Waters System 3008 offers extremely low pressure drop and maintains efficiency for optimal chlorine taste & odor reduction.

What does it take out?

WARNING: Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe, or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after the system.  Systems certified for cyst reduction may be used on disinfected waters that may contain filterable cysts.

NOTE: The contaminants or substances removed or reduced by this water treatment device are not necessarily in your water.

NOTE: Performance capacity depends on system design, flow rate and certain other application conditions. Certain states require system registration or certification for health-related reduction claims.

NOTE: A drinking water cartridge may contain carbon fines (very fine black powder). After installation and before using the water, follow the instructions for flushing the cartridge to remove fines.
