Simple Yet Effective Ceramic Countertop Water Filter

The APEC CT-2000 is a free-standing ceramic countertop filter that can be attached onto your existing faucet via a diverter valve. This 3-in-1 ceramic filter combines the anti-microbial properties of ceramic with the enhanced properties of activated carbon and the heavy metal reduction capabilities of ion exchange media to remove tastes and odors in addition to particles, bacteria, cysts, chlorine, organics and lead. This system allows filtered or unfiltered water to be drawn from the existing faucet at the press of a button.

APEC's CT-2000 Ceramic Countertop water filter produces high quality water that can be used to rinses fruits and vegetables, for beauty facial washes, for oral hygeine, for feeding pets and for watering plants. It was designed for durability and portability and its compact size and superior performance makes it the perfect choice for apartments, boats, and travel. It filters up to 2000 gallons at $0.06/gallon cartridge cost making it a better value when compared to regular faucet filters at $0.17/gallon and pitcher filters at $0.20/gallion. In addition, all APEC CT-2000 ceramic systems are built right here in the U.S. with NSF certified housings and highest quality ceramic filter cartridges.

*Nominal Filter Rating: Filter rating indicating the approximate size particle, the majority of which will not pass through the filter. It is generally interpreted as meaning that 85% of the particles of the size equal to the nominal micron rating will be retained by the filter. (WQA Glossary of Terms, Third Edition, 3-97).

**Absolute Filter Rating: Filter rating meaning that 99.9% (or essentially all) of the particles larger than a specific micron rating will be trapped on or within the filter. (WQA Glossary of Terms, Third Edition, 3-97)
