The Green Carbon water filter uses the highest grade granular coconut shell based activated carbon to effectively remove a wide range of chemical and organic contaminants from water without the need for regeneration, backwash, or electricity. Designed specifically for whole house filtration, this system uses acid washed high purity granular activated carbon manufactured by steam activation from premium select coconut shell charcoal. When water comes into contact with the surface of the catalytic media, gas, vapor, liquid and dissolved solid contaminants get channeled and trapped in the micropores of the carbon by the process of adsorption. These compounds are subsequently diffused into the carbon matrix and are adsorbed or locked into the internal pore structure removing it from the water. The large surface area of our carbon makes it highly porous allowing it to treat between 600,000 to 1,000,000 gallons of water.
The Green Carbon water filter uses advance state-of-the-art catalytic carbon to effectively adsorb difficult chemicals like chloramines which cannot be effectively removed by regular activated carbon filters. This Point-of-Entry whole house filtration system will provide you and your family with an unlimited supply of clean, clear and refreshing water throughout every faucet in your home!
You can enjoy all these benefits:
Chlorine/chloramine free water for softer skin and smoother hair after every shower
Improved water taste and clarity without any bad chemical odors
Luxurious spa quality water for your shower, bath, and hot tubs free from harsh, abrasive chemicals
Improved whole house air quality free of lingering chemical vapors commonly released from water
Better health and peace of mind knowing harmful VOCs, THMs have been removed from every faucet outlet in your entire home

Tips On Choosing A System:
To assure your highest satisfaction, please choose the right size (gpm) of the water conditioning system that at least matches your household peak demand flow rate. For example, if the most water you will use is to take a shower while doing your laundry and running the dishwasher simultaneously, then your peak demand will be (3+3+3=9) 9 gpm. This means our smallest Green Carbon water system, rated at 10 gpm, is sufficient for you.

A Different AlternativeWhile searching for a heavy duty whole house chlorine filtration system, I noticed a majority of them had back-washing features. I wouldn't mind spending the extra dollar for such a design, but the location where to install the system have neither an electrical outlet or drain for the back washed water to flow to. The Green Carbon system does not use electricity or require a drain line, so it works out perfect for me. All I have to do is replace the free sediment filter that comes with it yearly. Such a great alternative, thanks APEC!

No more rashes.Wow, what a difference filtered water can make! I have sensitive skin and frequently get rashes from allergic reactions to the nasty chlorine and chemicals they put in the water here in SoCal, but not anymore. Since installing the Green Carbon 10, my rashes have disappeared and I actually look forward to taking showers and baths again. The difference in my water quality after installing your system is really night and day. Thank you so much!

Every home should have one!It took me a couple of days to get the whole system installed and I wouldn't recommend just anyone trying to install it but if you have basic plumbing skills you can do it.
The system does indeed supply great water, almost silky smooth with no odors as you should expect with a filter like this. The whole house filter will help the media in the filter last longer and was also installed at the same time.

Has removed the chlorine smellWe have city water and my significant other complained about the chlorine from the time we moved in. We had the water tested and it was safe to drink, however we used carbon filters on drinking water. She also noted it may have been drying out her skin from showering. I installed the system myself, and used all copper with sweat fittings. This was part of some other plumbing work that I had wanted to do. Time for my installation of the filter was about a weekend. It's been in service for about 2 months, and so far, so good.

Easy install, removes chlorineI have been using this filter for about two months. It works well and removes all of the chlorine from the water. It removes most of the odor from the water, there is still a slight odor but better than before. I didn't notice a drop in pressure or any other changes in water. Took me a couple hours to pipe it, I used 1 inch pex.

Works as expectedThis is my families second green carbon 10. First was in our home, I installed in about 2012. Since we had well water, wanted to ensure we had no chemical leach from the farm properties around the property. We sold the home and moved to the city. Didn't realize how spoiled we were with the water quality in the country. City water is nasty, and hard.
Since we rent, the landlord allowed me to install a softner, reverse osmosis, flouride removal, and the green carbon 10. Now we have quality water in the city like we had in the country. The fluoride removal unit, reverse osmosis, and the green carbon 10, come from Apec. Smell, chloramines, and chlorine were a concerning issue to our health. Went with experience on a product that worked for me already.Took me a few weeks to install this unit, because of the other three units. Figuring how to put all this stuff in the confines of a washer.If you want no more chloramines, chlorine, plus the smell, I recommend the green carbon 10. It's proven itself in the 7 years I've owned 2. Replaced the carbon media in first unit. About 30 mins to an hour, and you have clean water again. Protect your families health with clean water, well water or city, the green carbon 10 has proved the perfect solution.

Love my water!I really love this system. The water is outstanding and taking a bath no longer feels like I’m soaking in a public swimming pool! Bathing in chlorine free water is the definitely the way to go. My skin is healthier and my hair is more manageable after every shower. It’s my best kept beauty secret.

Immediate change in skin hand feathers)!We bought this and installed once old cast iron and galvanized pipes were replaced. The change in my skin was immediate, and each time I shower there is even more of an improvement. I simply do not dry out, and use far less body lotion. My skin is simply soft and glowing all of the time. The real “wow” moment was when I put my macaw into the shower .... when he dried, his feathers were the softest I’ve ever felt. Uncertain if it was the water, I did the same for my female macaw. Same thing.The only issue I ran into was finding a plumbing company that would install the system. Nobody wanted to touch it. The men who did install it had no issues. Easy peasy. They did add stronger, metal valves in addition to the existing plastic ones, though. But, only because they are thoughtful. Not because the plastic ones were faulty. :)I put it in the corner of the bedroom at the exact point where the water line enters the house, where the birds sleep. Noiseless.You simply cannot go wrong with this purchase.
