Watts Premier 531130 Filter-Pure UF3 Ultrafiltration Water Filter System. The Watts Premier Filter-Pure UF3 Ultrafiltration Water Filter System is capable of running at low water pressures does not require a separate water holding tank does not alter the pH of the water and does not require electricity. This allows the UF3 to provide a continuous on demand supply of premium quality drinking water directly to your tap. Previously this process was used largely in municipal water treatment plants and hospitals; however through technological advances it is now available to you as an under sink drinking water system! Simple and sanitary quick filter changes with filter head on a swivel to accommodate easy access Works great in low water pressure situations Tested and certified by WQA to NSF/ANSI Standards 42 and 53 Filtering down to .2 microns! This is NOT the same system as the Watts 3-Stage Kwik Change 11 Undersink Water Filter System and the filters are NOT interchangeable. System Includes the Following Parts: One Filter-Pure (UF3) module (complete with filters) One high end Euro brushed nickel non-airgap faucet One cold water supply adapter Faucet connection hose Parts bag Product manual Installation instructions and warranty Filtering Stages: Stage 1: Five micron sediment filter that reduces sand silt sediment and rust particles that may be in your water. Stage 2: Heavy duty lead and Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) reducing carbon block filter (LVOC). Stage 3: Hollow Fiber Technology uses ultra filtration a membrane filtration process which uses standard home water pressure to push water through its semi permeable membrane filtering down to .2 microns
The Watts Premier Filter-Pure UF-3 Water Filtration Device utilizes three-stage filtration to ensure you get cleaner, healthier drinking water straight from the tap. In addition to reducing lead, chemicals, and chlorine taste and odor, the UF-3 uses Hollow-Fiber technology to trap and remove even the tiniest particles from your water. Featuring a patented space-saving design that is perfect for houses and apartments, the UF-3 can be installed in a matter of minutes.
Three-Stage Filtration Removes Contaminants
3-stage filtration and Hollow Fiber Technology provide cleaner water
straight from the tap.
During the lifecycle of a single filter, you can save up to 16,000 plastic bottles from being deposited in landfills.
The Watts UF-3 filters drinking water in three stages. Once the system is connected, water from the tap passes through a five-micron sediment filter, followed by a heavy-duty one-micron carbon block filter that reduces lead and chemicals.
The third stage of filtration involves a state-of-the-art UF Hollow Fiber Technology membrane. Hollow Fiber Technology uses standard home water pressure to push water through a semi-permeable membrane. Suspended particles and materials of high molecular weight are unable to pass through the 0.2 micron UF membrane, leaving you with only fresh clean water and dissolved minerals.
This specially formulated filtration process is capable of reducing cryptosporidia, giardia, entamoeba, and toxoplasma, as well as a long list of chemicals--from herbicides and pesticides to disinfection byproducts and gas additives.
Cleaner Water Straight from the Tap
It is estimated that VOCs (volatile organic chemicals) are present in one-fifth of the nation's water supplies. These contaminants can enter ground water from a variety of sources, including herbicide and pesticide runoff, gasoline or oil spills, leaking underground fuel tanks, disinfection byproducts, septic system cleaners, and chemicals used in the dry cleaning industry.
The UF-3 keeps you safe from these and other VOCs with its three-stage filtration, so you can turn on the tap with the assurance that you're getting cleaner, healthier drinking water.
Simple Operation for In-Home Convenience
Thanks to technological advances, the UF-3's sophisticated filtration process, which was commonly used only in municipal water treatment plants and hospitals, is now available for home use. The UF-3 is capable of running at low water pressures, and it won't alter the pH of your water. For added convenience, the filtration system doesn't require electricity or a separate holding tank.
Easy Assembly and Filter Replacement
The UF-3 features unique swivel-valve, push-button assembly that allows for easy initial installation, as well as simple and sanitary one-step filter changes that don't require you to shut off your water source.
The Importance of Drinking Clean Water
Water is critical to proper food digestion, kidney health, brain function, blood health, joint functionality, and more. It's important to make sure that the water you drink is devoid of contaminants. Thankfully, using a Watts water filtration device will ensure consistent quality for all of your drinking and cooking needs. In fact, when you use Watts' high-quality certified water treatment devices and filters, your water will be free of chlorine taste and odors, particles, and many other contaminants that can be detrimental to your health.
*Please refer to the Performance Data Sheet for the complete list of claims for which this system is certified.
Not only is the UF-3 filter a healthy choice for you, but it's also a healthy choice for the environment. This filter helps you minimize the harmful environmental consequences of buying bottled water. Incredibly, if a mere ten percent of North America's bottled water intake were reduced by switching to home-filtered water in reusable containers, we could eliminate:
- 133,000 trucks driving an average of 500 miles--saving nearly 12 million gallons of diesel fuel
- Over 100 million pounds of greenhouse gasses--equal to taking 1,100 cars off the road annually
- 213 million pounds of PET--equal to 1.5 million barrels of crude oil or improving the PET recycling rate by 10%
Depending upon which Watts water-filtration product you use, you can prevent up to 16,000 half-liter bottles from being deposited in landfills--all in the time it takes to use and replace a single filter.
The Watts Premier Filter-Pure UF-3 Water Filtration Device is backed by a three-year limited warranty.
