The Integrity Dual is our lowest cost system that removes lead, mercury, and a wide variety of contaminants, plus the chlorine your municipality uses to treat your water supply. The diverter valve is compatible with any standard kitchen faucet.
The Integrity Dual is a 2-filter, three-stage water purification system for those who live in condominiums or apartments, where permanent water filtration systems cannot be installed, or for those who want a system that is more portable.
Stage 1: One Micron Pleated Dirt/Rust/Sediment Filter, including Cyst and Bacteria Removal
The 1 micron dirt/rust/sediment filter is installed in stage 1. This filter should be changed every six months, or sooner if the water pressure drops significantly. Two are included with purchase, for one year of normal operation.
Stages 2 & 3: 0.5 Micron Carbon Block Microfiltration Filter
This dual stage filter is the right vertical stage of the unit, and consists of a 0.5 micron carbon block filter that is protected by Endurawrap™, which is designed to significantly increase the life of the cartridge by trapping sediment that typically plugs carbon cartridges.
This filter has multiple functions including:
– blocking some bacteria (however, it is not designed to treat totally untreated water) (Stage 2)
– removing chlorine, odors, dissolved and particulate lead (99.5% removal rate for lead), mercury, cysts, giardia, cryptosporidium, entamoeba and toxoplasma cysts. A unique feature of this filter is the filtration of MTBE and VOCs — contaminants that very few filtration systems can remove. (Stage 3)
For those living in regions where their water supplies are treated with chloramine rather than chlorine, there is also an alternative version of this model called the Integrity Freedom Dual Chloramine System, which substitutes a 1 micron activated catalytic carbon filter in the last two stages, to remove chlorine and chloramines, as well as some fine particles.
