The AquaCera HCS stainless steel countertop water filter has a modern stainless steel finish to coordinate with today's popular stainless steel kitchen appliances and decor. The HCS stainless steel housing is slim and compact (actually smaller than the HCP plastic model), so it doesn't take up much counter space. Installation is a cinch and within minutes you can start to enjoy safe, clean, great tasting drinking water in the comfort of your own home. The included CeraMetix™ filter is unique and highly desirable because it combines the added benefit of fluoride removal with all the benefits of a ceramic and carbon block water filter (such as the UltraCarb, CeraUltra, CeraCarb). Up until now, this level of filtration was only possible using a twin water filtration system. The AquaCera HCS stainless steel countertop water filter with CeraMetix™ filter offers the highest quality drinking water possible from a single stage filter.
