Aquafilter FCCST2 Water softening and iron removal cartridge 10″
The Aquafilter FCCST2 water softening and iron removal 10″ cartridge is filled with FDA compliant ion exchange resin. This reduces water hardness by reducing calcium and magnesium ion content in water as well as the concentration of iron. Calcium and magnesium are often called “hardness minerals”.
Large amounts of these ions in water are responsible for the formation of scale deposits, higher detergent consumption and stains on glassware. In extreme cases large amounts of calcium and magnesium can lead to glass etching.
Iron imparts a disagreeable taste to the water. It can ruin the taste of tea, coffee and beverages. Iron compounds create yellow to dark-brown stains on equipment. Iron salts irritate the skin.
The FCCST2 cartridge can also be used as a pre-filter in reverse osmosis systems to provide protection by reducing the hardness of the water passing through the reverse osmosis membrane. This extends its lifespan.
FCCST2 series cartridge is dedicated for cold water filtration.
