What makes The Pine Tree CounterTop™ so special?
The Pine Tree Counter Top filter uses a nano-sized media to filter out bacteria, viruses, and cysts. The carbon layers improve the taste by removing municipal levels of chlorine and other contaminants. The filter works both “mechanically” as well as “electrostatically”. With the water being negatively charged the filter captures the positively charged bacteria, viruses, and cysts. This is equivalent to .02 micron which is equivalent to the reverse osmosis filtration method without removing the minerals. Unlike the standard reverse osmosis method which removes the beneficial minerals.
The removal rate using clear municipal water is 99.9999 log removal on bacteria, 99.98 log removal of viruses, and greater than 99.99 log removal on cysts.
The filter cartridge can be changed in 60 seconds. We designed our product to be easy to install and easy to change cartridges. We recommend changing the filter every 12 months. The filter is good for 4,000 gallons of clcleanunicipal water.
