Please read through the steps for proper installation and run water through the system before use to remove any loose carbon fines.

High Quality Filtration

This filter is designed to reduce a wide array of contaminants that commonly appear in your drinking water. Inlcuded on this list are big players like lead and chlorine. Lead is an increasing concern as aging infrastructure and plumbing continue to erode and leach material into the water on its way to your home. Chlorine is a commonly used water disinfectant that, while effective at its purpose, can cause unpleasant tastes and odors in your water. Removing these contaminants while providing a filtration down to 0.5 microns means you will be providing cleaner, great-tasting water throughout your home.

Significant Contaminant Reduction

The Pioneer filter cartridge reduces chloramines, chlorine taste and odor, cysts, giardia, lead, and Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and Perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS), which are bio-permanent chemicals that do not break down naturally! The EPA suggests that water containing above 70 parts per trillion of these chemicals is above safe levels. The Pioneer Filter is certified to NSF/ANSI P473 standard for reduction of PFOA and PFOS. This filter ensures your water contains much fewer unwanted water contaminants.
