Real Protection from Contaminants. An advanced filtration appliance designed to filter all water throughout your home, providing truly healthy water to every sink and shower. All our filtration appliances utilize the highest quality filtration in order to effectively remove and reduce chlorine, chloramine, VOCs, THMs, pesticides, herbicides, pharmaceutical residues, obesogens, and more. Our filtration appliances are in use worldwide by hospitals, medical centers, health and fitness centers, military, professional athletes, and thousands of personal homes worldwide.

Healthier Home & Lifestyle. All our filtration appliances are designed to prevent you and your family from drinking, absorbing, and inhaling various contaminants and carcinogenic (cancer-causing) chemicals. Enjoy chlorine-free, healthy, filtered water – use your Max Flow for drinking, filling up a pet's water bowl, watering plants, making tea and coffee, or filling up the humidifier with chlorine-free filtered water. Rinsing your organic fruits and veggies in toxic, chemical-free water now keeps them organic instead of absorbing what was in your tap water.

Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after the system. Install in cold water feed applications only (for instance, install before a water heater so hot water does not flow into the appliance). Install in compliance with local and state regulations.

Do not use to filter salt softened water (sodium or potassium chloride).

¹Filter service life is based on your local water conditions and usage. Fine sediment, micro-plastics, or certain water conditions may prematurely reduce flow rate and service life due to the filter's advanced ability to capture contaminants and may require more frequent filter replacements.

SALT SOFTENED WATER WARNING: Do not use for filtering salt (sodium or potassium chloride) softened water. Use EWS reverse osmosis (RO3 or RO4) to remove the salt from the water due to the softener.

WELL WATER WARNING: Not to be installed on well water of unknown quality. Well water is required to have independent, complete and proper testing of your well water to determine the proper course of action in order to specify the correct system(s).
