stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, numbness in hands and
feet, partial paralysis and blindness. Arsenic has been linked to

How Do You Filter Arsenic From Water?
CuZn uses a synthetic resin embedded with ferrous oxide to
attract and bind the arsenic. The cartridge is rated at 1500-2000
gallons and best changed once a year. The cartridge is more suited
for municipal sources where the arsenic would be mostly or all in
the A5/arsenate form. If more than 25% of the arsenic is in the
A3/arsenite form, this cartridge may not perform
IMPORTANT NOTE: The following systems are for
use on municipally treated potable water only. Any uses other than
recommended voids all warranties because there is no way to know
what well water might contain that will interfere with the efficacy
of the filter -- for instance, hardness, pH, lead, iron, turbidity,
solids, parasites, cysts, etc. If you have well water, call us toll
