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.
Challenges in creating a consistent lead certification protocol
Rainwater harvesting and storm water recycling are similar processes, but rainwater harvesting usually involves collecting water from cleaner surfaces, such as roofs, while storm water typically is ground-level runoff. Both require collecting, storing and conserving rain for later use.
Rainwater harvesting system provides alternative to well water
More than ever, sustainable surface and groundwater supplies are essential to communities across North America and around the world. The strains of industry and agriculture on groundwater are noticeable as pressures on water supplies intensify and supply patterns change. The increase in agriculture over vulnerable aquifers, climate change and hydrocarbon production are impacting water quality. Unregulated use or uncontrolled flow of groundwater can cause water quality degradation and conflict between water users.
Small drinking water systems opt for POE UV treatment
In the words of Alexandra Cousteau, “Water will be the defining crisis of our century.” Essentially, water is running out. Population is constantly growing, and water and storm water management costs are skyrocketing across the U.S., increasing by up to 8% per year. Without a sustainable water management plan that includes rainwater harvesting, both people and businesses will suffer.

Whether or not we’d like to admit it, we live in a competitive society. To make matters worse, I live in a competitive home. My children are motivated by the thrill of a contest. It is not just playing games either—the competition has moved to simple, everyday tasks.
Gain an advantage in the marketplace with third-party certification
Consumers who choose to use a residential point-of-use (POU) reverse osmosis (RO) system in their home need to feel secure that their system is producing high quality, reliable water for their family. Because most of us lack sophisticated equipment at home to make this determination, many homeowners rely on trusted brands to deliver the water quality they expect.
Quality tests and certifications ensure reliable filter performance
India is regarded as one of the fastest growing global markets. With an official Indian government growth forecast of 8.75% in 2011, the country emerged relatively unscathed from the recent global economic downturn.
India occupies only 2.4% of the world’s landmass, but it has more than 15% of the world’s population, with a median age of 25. Approximately 70% of India’s population lives in more than 550,000 villages; the rest of the population lives in more than 200 towns and cities.
