EcoPure's advanced undersink carbon filter helps deliver great-tasting drinking water right from your kitchen sink or refrigerator, reducing sediment, chlorine taste & odour, cysts and lead down to 0.5 microns. This drop-in-style filter is perfect for homes with a handful of water issues that primarily want to remove lead. Made using a high-quality activated carbon block, the EPU2L filter features a highly adsorptive, positively-charged material that removes greater amounts of impurities from your water than you'd get with a sediment filter. Compatible with our EcoPure EPU3 system, this filter's universal design also fits all major brands of open-sump, undersink systems. For best filtration results, please replace your water filters every six months, as recommended.
