8 Stage Water Filter Vs 7 Stage Water Filter

8 stage kdf water filter infographics

When it comes to choosing a water filtration system, the number of stages can play an important role in determining the quality of the filtered water. An 8 stage water filter and a 7 stage water filter are two common options available in the market. While both types of filters typically include a sediment filter, pre-filters, and a coconut carbon block water filter, the 8 stage water filter adds an additional stage 6 100% activated coconut carbon filter, which can effectively remove heavy metals and total dissolved solids from water supplies.

Additionally, some 8 stage water filters may also include a reverse osmosis membrane, which can further improve water quality by removing impurities that are not caught by the pre-filters or carbon filters. Ultimately, whether you choose an 8 stage or 7 stage water filter will depend on your specific needs and budget.

KDF Activated Charcoal Mineral Water Filter Replacement Cartridges

KDF or Kinetic degradation fluxion is a product developed in 1984 by Don Heskett whose function is to remove unwanted chlorine, lead, mercury, iron and hydrogen sulphide from water supplies. It’s a high purity copper zinc formulation that uses a basic chemical process known as redox. It works by exchanging electrons with contaminants and changes them to benign and harmless components. KDF is also effective in killing algae and fungi and prevents the growth of bacteria. KDF can also reduce or remove other contaminants like iron, chlorine, hydrogen sulphide, mercury, lead, chromium and magnesium. Exposure to these certain contaminants can lead you to have fatal and serious diseases such as cancer, nervous system damage, joint diseases, diseases of the kidneys and circulatory system

KDF Media

KDF is greatly optimised when used with water filter media. It complements any form of activated carbon that have multi-stage stage filters. KDF can also help to prolong water filter media. For instance, KDF extends the life and enhances the efficiency of activated carbon water filters. KDF can also remain effective even at high temperatures which is why it is also a popular choice for shower water filters.

Pre Filters

Before the water passes through the main filtering system, a pre-filter, often referred to as a sediment filter, works to remove dirt, rust, sand, silt, and other substantial suspended particles and sediments. The water is cleaned and made ready for further purification. Pre-filters are reusable, inexpensive, and simple to use. It's installed at the point-of-entry, also known as the point from where water enters the house.
