EFFECTIVE - SIX STAGE FILTRATION
CQ is utilizing the latest technologies in water
industry, coupled with over 40 years of manufacturing expertise, provides you with
the effective water filtering systems that provide you with healthy, great-tasting water, conveniently, at the most
affordable price. CQ water filtering products are attractive, easy to
install and use, and removes many contaminants* from water.
Water travels through multiple stages of filtration:
In stage 1,
water flows through pre and post one-micron filter pads (1 micron
equals 1/25,000th of an inch), which removes suspended particles such as silt,
sediment, cyst (Giardia, Cryptosporidium), sand, rust, dirt, and other
In stages 2 and 3, water flows through a bed of media made of a special
high-purity alloy blend of two dissimilar metals - copper and zinc (Eagle
and Eagle Redox Alloy
9500.) Eagle Redox Alloy
is a major advancement in water treatment technology that works on the
electro-chemical and spontaneous-oxidation-reduction (REDOX) principles.
Chlorine is instantaneously and almost inexhaustibly oxidized. Tests on Eagle Redox Alloy/GAC
cartridge have shown 99+% chlorine removal past 20,000 gallons of water. In
comparison, carbon cartridges of comparable volumes drop below 90% effectiveness
after only 4,000 gallons.
Iron and hydrogen sulfide are oxidized into insoluble matter and attach to the
surface of the media.
Heavy metals such as lead, mercury, copper, nickel,
chromium, cadmium, aluminum, and other
dissolved metals are removed from the water by the electrochemical process. They
are attracted to the surface of the media, much like a magnet. The media
inhibits bacterial growth throughout the entire unit. In fact, it has been shown
to be reduced up to 90%, eliminating the need for silver, which is commonly used
in carbon-only filters (silver is considered a pesticide by the EPA and, as
such, must be registered with them).
Is copper or zinc added to the water in any
significant amount? On 2.3 ppm chlorinated water, <0.05 mg/l copper and only
0.46 mg/l zinc were measured. The EPA aesthetic levels are 1.0 mg/l for copper
and 5.0 mg/l for zinc. Both zinc and copper are essential minerals for good
health - the FDA recommends a daily intake of 15 mg of zinc and 2 mg of copper.

In stage 4, water flows through ion exchange resins, reducing heavy metals such as lead, copper,
aluminum, and water hardness.
In stage 5, water flows through granulated
activated carbon (GAC). GAC is universally recognized and widely used as an
effective adsorbent for a wide variety of organic contaminants, such as chlorine (99.9%),
chemicals linked to cancer (THM's, benzene) pesticides, herbicides,
insecticides, volatile organic compounds (VOC's), PCB's, MTBE's and hundreds of
other chemical contaminants that may be present in water causing bad taste and
odors in your drinking water. Click here to learn more about GAC
Carbon is extremely porous and provides a large surface area for contaminants to
collect. Carbon-only filters must also use their capacity for chlorine removal,
resulting in a shortened life. They also may use a bituminous coal carbon, which
is good at removing chlorine, but not as effective at removing chemicals. We use
a high-grade coconut shell carbon that is most effective at removing chemicals.
Coconut shell carbon provides a significantly higher volume of micro-pores than
either coal, wood or lignite based carbon. As a result, it is more effective
than other carbon types in removing trihalomethanes (THM's) and other chemicals
from municipally supplied water. Since our REDOX media removes the chlorine
before it reaches the carbon, the carbon capacity is not wasted on chlorine and
is free to concentrate more effectively on organic contaminants.
In stage 6,
water flows through another one-micron
filtration pad for further reduction of undesirable particles. The end result is
a great reduction or total elimination of a wide variety of contaminants* from
* when those contaminants are present
