If you’re concerned about the water you drink, cook with and give to your pets, you’re not alone. A recent 2016 Gallup Poll revealed that 61% of Americans responded that they are worried “a great deal” about drinking polluted water. Have you worried about your drinking water quality at home or when traveling or camping? The good news is that there is an easy way to have purified, great tasting water at home and when you travel. APEX counter top water filters are small, easy to use and portable. And even more important, they will remove much of the contamination we find in our drinking water.
How do APEX Counter Top Filters Work?
APEX counter top filters are designed to be attractive, simple and effective water purification systems that take up very little space on a kitchen counter. The filter consists of a base with a screw-on filter housing. This filter unit holds one APEX filtration cartridge. There are several specialty filters and cartridges to choose from. The filter easily connects to the faucet with a simple twist-on diverter valve. The diverter valve allows water to bypass the filter for washing dishes, household cleaning and other tasks that don’t require purified water. The diverter valve easily screws onto any standard faucet. No plumbing is required! As water passes through the filter cartridge impurities are removed. Clean, refreshing water comes out of the filter’s gooseneck faucet. This purified water can be used immediately or placed in the refrigerator for cold drinks. The APEX counter top filter can also be taken along when traveling to hotels, camping and in an RV. Replacement filter cartridges are available directly from APEX for easy ordering and guaranteed performance.
What will the APEX Filter Remove?
There are several types of filtration available in the counter top configuration. These filter options can be seen in the Countertop section of the APEX website. The MR-1011 model contains a granular activated carbon cartridge that removes sediment like sand and insect parts along with chlorine, radon and industrial chemicals. A step up in filtration is the MR-1020 counter top filter. The advanced filter cartridge removes chlorine, chloramine, iron, hydrogen sulfide and heavy metals like lead and mercury. In addition to chemical contaminants, the MR-1020 removes grit, scale and insect parts. Interested in the health benefits of alkaline drinking water? Consider an APEX counter top filter with an alkaline filter cartridge. The RF-1050 cartridge removes chlorine taste and odor, heavy metals like copper and lead and controls microorganisms in your drinking water. But that’s not all! The alkaline water hydrates your body while adding minerals that our body does not produce such as calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium to name a few.
