The CBC10 Cartridge is the most common cartridge we supply. Compared to GAC cartridges which use loose activated carbon (usually from coconut fibre) this cartridge has a greater surface area and ability to remove fine chemicals and will not ‘channel’ the water as granulated cartridges do. It contains almost double the media of the CTO and is very effective at removing all organic chemicals, taste, odour. It is the most effective cartridge of this size on the market for removing THM’s, ( the chemical 'by products' of chlorine reacting with organic matter in the water and known to cause cancers).
Unlike the cheaper GAC coconut fibre cartridges which can act as a source of food for bacteria, the CBC10 media will not promote the growth of bacteria in the cartridge and so along with a greater chemical removal capacity will also remain hygienic for longer than many cheaper cartridges.
For situations of low use such as single people or holiday home, it is also available with silver added which is a natural bacteriostatic media to keep the cartridge hygienic even longer.
Fine 0.5 micron filtration mesh removes Giardia and cryptosporidium Cysts.
No realease of carbon dust when first installed as most other cartridges do.
The cartridge fits in any standard 10 inch filter casing. The most common brand is the US Filter or Pentek Brand.
A filter wrench helps to open the filter casing so we have added the option of getting a wrench for those people without one.
