This proprietary custom-made carbon formulation consists of powdered KDF media bonded onto the surface of granular activated carbon (GAC). This media controls the buildup of bacteria, algae and fungi, which is often associated with bad tastes and odor in GAC filters. It has enhanced filter performance compared with traditional GAC filters and minimal carbon fines are released.
