This is nearly twice the filter life of the Aqua Pure AP117 replacement cartridge, with no drop in water quality. Solid coconut shell carbon block filter has more contaminant reduction than granular activated carbon (GAC) filters (such as the AP117) because it allows for the water to be in contact with the carbon for longer. This means better tasting water too.The Premiere PS117 fits standard size housings calling for a 2.5″ x 9.75″ cartridge (also commonly called 2.5″ x 10″ or just 10″).

This drop-in style water filter cartridge is quick and easy to install. Just like the Aqua Pure AP117, the PS117 water filter removes particles 5 micron and larger in size.

What is a coconut shell carbon block filter?

Coconut shell carbon filters absorb harmful contaminants and improve the appearance and taste of drinking water. Coconut shell is microporous with minimal dust, and therefore is very efficient at organic chemical adsorption. Coconut shell carbon block filters have high hardness which makes them ideal for water purification.

Coconut shells are also an eco-friendly and renewable resource for water purification. Coconuts are harvested three times per year and their harvest has no negative impact on coconut trees. That is, a coconut tree will continue to grow and produce coconuts throughout the year even after its coconuts are harvested.

What is the difference between solid carbon block filters and a granular activated carbon filter (GAC filter)?

Solid carbon block filters have compressed carbon whereas a granular activated carbon filter (GAC filter) contains loose granules of carbon. A major advantage of carbon block filters is that they allow for water to be in contact with carbon for a longer period, which leads to a better contaminant removal. The PS117 is a solid carbon block filter.
