Boom! This is our new filter using our patented filter media called CoreXchange Technology™. This filter has a replaceable filter cartridge, so don’t throw it away. We designed it this way because there are thousands of potential contaminants in our tap water and we have found that after years of testing and usage, some filtration media are better at removing certain types of contaminants over others. With this in mind, we have designed a layered approach of different types of filter media into one filter. This multi-layered filter will target both tap water (Chlorine, Microplastics, Lead, PFAS, etc.) as well as outdoor water contaminants (Bacteria, Virus, Cryptosporidium, Giardia, etc).
