An alkaline filter cartridge (2.5" dia x 10" L) that goes into a 10" standard filter housing (e.g., Pentek housing, ASIN: B003VT79VA). This is NOT an inline filter. This filter by EDEN has a service life of one year or 2,000 gallons and a maximum flow rate of 0.5 gym. The weight of the filter is 1 lb 11 oz. The filter contains a special blend of media that includes: ceramic balls with bio energy, far infrared, mineral and alkaline properties, Mineral Stone, and Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) material. The filter re-mineralizes and raises the pH of your purified water by at least 1.5 to 2.5 points. Initial testing of pH showed a reading in the range 9.7- 10.1. With use and time, the pH will go down gradually. To add this filter cartridge to a reverse osmosis (RO) system, you need a standard housing with fittings. This filter is incorporated in Eden's 5-stage system RO5-100-ALK (ASIN: B008LH9SBQ). Purified warer, after going through the alkaline-mineral-ORP media, will have a higher pH, higher mineral content, and lower ORP. When using this filer after an RO system, it is not uncommon for some customers to complain about taste at first. We recommend adding bleach (1 tsp) to the inlet of the housing that will contain this filter cartridge to disinfect the media. This may be needed only once at first use.
