  • CBR2 Series water filter cartridges are manufactured using a patented process, and combine powdered activated carbon (PAC) with a specially designed adsorbent medium for lead and mercury reduction.
  • These US Filter CBR2-20BB cartridges are protected by Endurawrap™, a uniquely formulated polyolefin bilaminate prefilter, designed to significantly increase the useful life of the cartridge by trapping sediment that typically plugs carbon block cartridges.
  • NOTE: Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after the system.
  • NOTE: Cartridges will contain a very small amount of carbon fines (very fine black powder) and a new cartridge after installation should be flushed with sufficient water to remove all traces of the fines from your water system before using the water. Each time you use your filtered water tap for drinking or cooking purposes it is recommended that you run (flush) the tap for at least 20 seconds prior to using water.
  • NOTE: CBR2 Series cartridges say "Not for residential sale in the state of California" on the filter label because they have not been submitted to CA for testing.
