Was the name changed from Tap Master to Home Master?
Yes, Perfect Water Technologies felt the Home Master name better reflected a commitment to delivering pure water throughout your home with sinktop, undersink and whole house water purification products.
Will this filter remove 100% of the fluoride?
No, it will remove up to 93% of fluoride under the stated operating conditions. It is important to note that the media used to remove fluoride – activated alumina – is contact dependent. This means that by increasing the amount of time the water spends in the media, more of the contaminant will be removed. Operating the system at less than the maximum flow rate improves the contact time and increase the removal rate.
Is the filter replaceable?
Yes, it contains a replaceable filter cartridge. Change it every 3 months or 500 gallons, whichever comes first. A wrench is not needed to open the housing. We have a newly redesigned filter cartridge that ensures the filter fits snugly without leaks and produces great tasting water. Replacement filter part number: CFF25-10
Can I test the filter performance with a TDS meter?
Not really. TDS is a measure of total dissolved solids - the bulk of which are calcium and magnesium minerals, which this filter leaves intact. As a result very little, if any, change in TDS is to be expected. A better option is to use chlorine test strips, and view that result as a surrogate indicator for the filter’s overall performance.
