The HCS is a free-standing countertop filter housing designed to attach to most kitchen or bathroom faucets to provide safe, clean, great-tasting filtered water without modifications to plumbing fixtures. The housing is made of medical-grade stainless steel and will accommodate one ¼-in. BSP thread filter candle. Flow rates from 0.4 to 1 gpm are available, depending on filter choice.
Made from a durable crystal-clear resin, the crystal handle can be used with any S, SP or MS series faucet. Many existing faucets can easily be converted to this handle by simply replacing the handle, or the crystal handle can be purchased fully assembled to the faucet.
Bright Line faucets feature LED lights that alert the user when it is time to change the filter. They combine the Zuvo Water filtration system, faucet and smart phone application to provide consumers with great tasting water, style and information. The smart phone app makes it easy to check filter status, track daily water consumption and view what is being filtered based on the municipality’s water quality report.
