GAC Granular Activated Carbon Cartridges

Our FI-GAC20-BB filter cartridges effectively reduce unwanted tastes, odor, and chlorine from your drinking water. They are specifically designed to provide maximum contact time between the water and carbon media to ensure maximum adsorption.

The construction of the cartridge allows water to enter at one end and pass through the entire length of the carbon bed before exiting the other end of the filter, while an internal expansion pad minimizes channeling or bypass. Before the water exits the cartridge, a 20-micron post filter helps reduce carbon fines and other suspended particles from the filtered water. The post-filter is permanently fastened to an innovative support basket ensuring that it is firmly secured and eliminating any potential for contaminant bypass.

The FI-GAC20-BB filter will fit in our 20 Inch standard whole house big housings.
