Q5686 Omnipure 12" GAC and Polyphosphate Quick Change Filter for Chlorine, Taste & Odor Removal Plus Scale Control.
Scale Protection with Taste, Odor & Chlorine Reduction
Used in situations where “hard water” is a problem, Polyphosphate is a food grade product that inhibits scaling and controls the corrosion or rusting of pipes and equipment. Scaling and corrosion are the result of lime and iron (in soluble form) reacting with metal in pipes or equipment, forming a solid (scale or rust). Polyphosphate solves this problem by holding these contaminants in suspension, which keeps them from reacting with the metals in pipes or equipment.
Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) has long been utilized to reduce impurities in potable water. It is widely recognized for its adsorption capacity plus its ability to reduce dissolved organics and chemicals such as chlorine. These and other impurities can cause undesirable taste, odor and color in water.
With polyphosphate and GAC combined, the Omnipure Q5686 water filter is ideal for the protection of equipment such as ice makers, beverage equipment, and pumps and is excellent for potable water because it is tasteless and odorless. Ideal for use in Icemakers, refrigerators, under-the-counter, drinking fountains, beverage equipment, R.O. Systems, and in conjunction with commercial purification systems.
