.5 micron 10"x 2.5" (BCC) Anti-Bacterial Silver Impregnated Bacteriostatic Composite Carbon Block Filter Single Counter Top Unit

Anti-Bacterial Silver Impregnated Bacteriostatic Composite Carbon Block Filter: Inhibits the growth or reproduction of bacteria of the carbon block (Please see below for more detail)

Bacteriostatic Composite Carbon Block Filter is the next step above the CTOP (Colour, Taste, Odour Premium)

We prefer the Bacteriostatic Carbon Block Filter above the CTO and CTOP due to the extra protection and microbiological safety it offers over the extended life of use of this configuration still maintaining the Premium Carbon Block Blend of a CTOP 

This .5 micron Bacteriostatic Composite Carbon Block Filter is also fine enough to block Cryptosporidium and Giardia

Rated also to remove chlorine and odour plus deliver the sweet taste to water that 100% coconut carbon block are known for.

**This filter is an excellent choice to be used as a pre filter for a gravity system where sediment is an issue that causes premature cleaning intervals found in some suburbs

* Chlorine Reduction rated in Gallons over life of filter (1 US gallon = AUS 3.78 ltrs)

BCC range of Bacteriostatic Composite Carbon Block Filter are backed by the benefits of;

  • Antimicrobial Protection Carbon Block
  • Greatest Chlorine, Taste and Odour Removal (75,000 litres lab test conditions, differing water quality will vary results)
  • Certified NSF/ANSI Standard 42 – NSF
  • Certified NSF/ANSI Standard 42 – WQA
  • Performance tested and verified by Independent laboratory testing
  • Certified by ISO 9001
  • Suits all water types, tank water, river, creeks or streams and town water supplies
  • .5 micron size is small enough to also capture giardia and cryptosporidium 
  • High flow rate of 1 litre per 8 seconds (7.5 litres per minute)

Bacteriostatic properties definition

Silver-impregnated coconut shell activated carbon specifically designed for bacteriostatic properties and trace removal. It is manufactured from coconut shells by high-temperature steam activation under rigidly controlled conditions. The silver impregnation of carbon imparts bacteriostatic properties that inhibit bacterial growth on the carbon filter media. Silver exhibits a self-sterilizing property called the oligodynamic effect that, although not fully understood, is recognized as an effective method for controlling microbial growth.
