These filters are built using ResinTech premium ion exchange resins and activated carbon products. Filters are filled fresh from the manufacturing facility to give them maximum shelf life. Each product is individually lot numbered to provide traceability through the company’s quality program. Each lot number provides the complete history of a filter, including date of manufacture, assembly location and quality control of the media.
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.
This filter’s pleated design gives it a high surface area, providing excellent flow and dirt-holding capacity with minimal pressure loss. Constructed with carbon-impregnated media, it provides resistance to bacterial attack. It is ideal for non-chlorinated water supplies in which sediment reduction is the primary purpose of the filter and when taste, odor and chlorine reduction are desired.
Single-cartridge COAT fusion-bonded coated filter housings feature a 3M fusion-bonded epoxy coating for resistance to seawater, wastewater and harsh chemicals. The coating has been tested and certified to ANSI/NSF Standard 61 and meets the requirements of AWWA Standards C213 and C550. They feature excellent chemical resistance, resist cavitation and cathodic disbondment and offer high adhesion and toughness. They protect over a wide temperature range and are lightweight for lower shipping costs.
More than 50,000 filters have been distributed since 2006
In collaboration with Safe Water Team (SWT) and its partner Safe Water Ghana Inc., Wishing Well International Foundation (WWIF) was able to implement the first phase of its project in Bagliga, Ghana. The 100-family project was partly funded by the children of St. Paul Lutheran School in Boca Raton, Fla., who, in addition to providing clean, safe drinking water to the village, are busy collecting uniforms for donation to villages throughout the world where WWIF maintains a presence.

UFMC Series carbon wrap filters are cellulose free. Manufactured from carbon and polypropylene fibers, these filters will not harbor bacteria and other organics that are typical with cellulose-based filters. These cost-effective, single-stage cartridges are ideally suited for removal of sediments and reduction of unwanted taste, odor and chlorine from drinking water. They are available in 5, 10 and 20 microns in standard 2.6-in. and jumbo 4.5-in. OD diameters of 10- and 20-in. lengths.
These carbon cartridges eliminate problems associated with loose carbon treatment. Standard cartridges measure 2 ¾ in. in diameter with lengths of 4 to 40 in. With flow rates reaching 2.5 gpm, cartridges are designed for use in either single- or multi-tubed vessels. Carbon styles include high-grade coconut carbon, carbon impregnated paper and wet-molded carbon block.
Lead has been a hot topic for consumers and the media for many years. We all have heard about the deterioration of U.S. water distribution systems, lead service lines, extremely high levels of lead in Washington, D.C.’s drinking water because of a change from chlorine to chloramine, lead in paint, lead in toys, new lead content laws in California and Vermont (soon to be national)—concerns about lead that will never go away.
