Choosing a Size:  You have 3 choices when picking a size for each of the styles. Please keep the following in mind when choosing the size of your filter:

• The larger the size, the faster the flow rate will be.

• Each size has the exact same filtration technology, but not the same amount of filtration media. The worse the water is coming in, the larger the cartridge should be to get the best quality of water possible. The quality of filtration is all dependent on contact time (the amount of time within the filter cartridge). So, in areas of heavily contaminated water, well water, or water with high sulfur or metal levels, please choose a larger cartridge size or manually adjust the ball valve to slow the flow down to allow for proper filtration.
