This under-sink filter set is suitable for residentialand commercial drinking water filtration.Water filters remove undesirableparticles, chemicals, and microorganisms from water by means of asemipermeable barrier, adsorption, or biological processes. They are made ofdensely packed synthetic or natural fibers that trap suspended particles,materials that block microbes or adsorb unwanted chemicals, or substances thatcause a chemical change, such as acid neutralization. For most residential,commercial, and industrial applications, water filters are manufactured in theform of replaceable cartridges that fit inside permanent housings. Filtrationsystems typically consist of a series of two or more types of filters, eachdesigned to remove different contaminants. The performance of filters ismeasured by the minimum particle size that is blocked, the percentage ofparticles or microorganisms that are removed, the downstream concentration ofunwanted chemicals, the maximum flow rate, and the amount of water that can befiltered before the filter must be replaced. Water filters are used in a widerange of applications, including drinking water purification, swimming pools,industrial processes, and irrigation, among others.Pentair manufacturesindustrial, commercial, and residential water filtration components andsystems under the Pentek brand.
