Once the Imperial filtration system is set up, water will filter through its efficient CeraUltra ceramic filter and remove chlorine, sediment, bacteria and heavy metals and then pass through a specially designed filter to remove a specific contaminant that is presently high in your water supply. What you receive is clean, healthy drinking water for just pennies a day. It's durable housing and filters are designed for maximum filtration performance without loss of water flow. Another added benefit, is the system is designed to be neatly tucked underneath the sink. It is not as compact in size compared to some of our other under the counter filtration systems but won't take up the entire cabinet area in most homes. The water filtration system comes complete with all the great quality hardware needed for simple installation. The included attractive chrome faucet features a sturdy diverter valve which allows you to effortlessly switch from unfiltered to filtered water. One can install the chrome faucet in the existing sink spray attachment area or by drilling a hole in the sink top or countertop next to the sink. We do highly recommend having a certified plumber come to install the system since some alterations may be needed to the water supply connection and sink area. Overall, the installation process is quick and easy. In summary, we feel confident that the AquaCera Imperial water filter will meet the expectations for those seeking healthy, great tasting water.
