Meet the CuZn UC-200 under counter water filter – 50k ultra-high capacity!
This convenient, tidy filter system fits neatly under your sink and connects within 5 minutes to your existing cold water connection with no additional connections needed (all you need is an adjustable wrench).
These are the perfect unit to combat a chlorinated water supply, removing up to 99% of the chlorine from the water with the KDF-55 Filtration Media which is just one of the 3 filters incorporated into this ultra-compact system.
The patented 3-stage filtration system combines Micro Sediment Membranes, KDF-55 Filtration Media, and Coconut Shell Carbon take care of multiple different contaminants and still allows for a good flow of water from your faucet.
With a filter that only needs replacing every 5 years or 50,000 gallons, the CuZn UC-200 is a leader in longevity with very few others even coming close to this and gives you the freedom to set and forget that it’s even there.
The taste of Chlorine in your household water is just so annoying and now it’s also unnecessary. For what this unit is and does it is extremely affordable and absolutely worth it, because the standard carbon-only filters allow for the growth of mold and bacteria. But these are a Bacteriostatic filtration system which means they prevent the growth of bacteria.
Not bad, eh?
Features You’ll Value
Selective water purification
As the water passes through this unit, the 3-stage filtration process leaves the health beneficial hardness minerals like calcium & magnesium, while still eliminating the organic and inorganic contaminants of chlorine, lead, mercury, chromium VI, cadmium, herbicides, pesticides, sediment, algae, molds, bad taste, odors and other undesirable contaminants leaving only amazingly clean-tasting water.
No third faucet
Direct connection to the existing water supply under your sink, means that there’s no need for the drilling of holes in your sink or counter-top.
This is a huge time-saver when it comes to installation, not to mention a space-saver as well. Having to install a third faucet on your counter takes up space and can look rather crowded in the midst of everything else that’s going on in the kitchen.
Keep your space and still enjoy filtered water with a system like this concealed inside your cupboard.
Easy installation beneath any home or office sink
As long as you have a viable cold water supply, you can have amazingly clean water.
While it’s always recommended to have a professional do the installation, you could simply go and grab your adjustable spanner and your all set to go!
At only 15.5″ tall and 4″ in diameter, you don’t need a lot of space to be able to enjoy the taste and health benefits of this filtered water system.
There is a simple video on the installation procedure that can be found here.
3-Stage filtering process
Utilizing their own patented design, CuZn Water Systems have provided a filtration system that includes not only Micro Sediment Membranes but the added filters of KDF-55 Filtration Media and Virgin Acid Washed Catalytic Coconut Shell Carbon Filtration Media that have been tested to NSF standard 42 and 61.
While sounding a little complicated, what it means for you is absolute peace of mind. If you’re in an area with a chlorinated water supply then this is hands-down the right unit to be looking at for much better-tasting water.
Extended lifetime and capacity
This. Is. Incredible.
Most filter systems need replacing once or sometimes even twice every 12 months.
The UC-200 only requires replacing EVERY 5-YEARS or 50,000 GALLONS!
You said what?
FIFTY. THOUSAND. GALLONS.
If you worry about counting the gallons, don’t. You simply use DPD#1 Chlorine Test Strips & replace when chlorine breakthrough is detected.
Bacteria in water can be detrimental to health, as we all know. So, it’s reassuring to know that these units are not susceptible to mold or bacteria.
Bacteria can’t grow inside these bacteriostatic water filtration systems, unlike the carbon only filters. Bacteriostatic simply means that it’s capable of inhibiting the growth or reproduction of bacteria which is very reassuring when you’re drinking the water and you can’t see inside the filter body.
