Introducing new ProMaxTM high efficiency, encapsulated, multi-stage water filter technology from Propur®.
Each stage is comprised of a unique proprietary formula of infused microstructure filtration media designed to target a specific group of contaminants. Contains no resins or beads. Engineered for unsurpassed performance and maximum contaminant reduction.
Independent lab reports show the ProMaxTM reduces/removes a broad range of 200 + contaminants including VOC’s, lead, fluoride, heavy metals, pesticides, SVC’s, disinfectants, inorganic non-metallics, herbicides, pharmaceuticals, PFOA, PFOS and micro-organisms. Helps improve taste and odor. Tested to NSF-42 and 53 standards. See ProMaxTM Lab Reports for details. Unlike carbon block and ceramic composite filters, ProMaxTM filters do not require cleaning to help maintain flow rate and contaminant reduction.
ProMaxTM filter technology is available on select Propur® products including Propur® Shower Filter, Countertop and In-line for the refrigerator.
About TDS (From Wikipedia)
“A TDS Meter indicates the Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) of a solution, i.e. the concentration of dissolved solids in it. Since dissolved ionized solids such as salts and minerals increase the conductivity of a solution, a TDS meter measures the conductivity of the solution and estimates the TDS from that.
A TDS meter typically displays the TDS in parts per million (ppm). For example, a TDS reading of 1 ppm would indicate there is 1 milligram of dissolved solids in each kilogram of water.”
TDS is a measure of total dissolved solids and NOT dissolved contaminants. A higher TDS can simply be high calcium or mineral content. As Propur® filters are made from minerals, TDS may be higher after the water has been treated. This does not mean the filter isn’t working, it means the TDS meter is picking up the minerals that are naturally released by the filter.
A PPM meter is the same as a TDS meter, it is simply measures dissolved solids in water. A TDS meter is not generally recognized in the industry as a proper means of testing water for contaminants. They were created years ago by the manufacturers of reverse osmosis systems as a means of demonstrating the effectiveness of RO which removes most if not all minerals.
