Replacement Carbon Filter for Hydrologic Tall Boy and Tall Blue Series Systems.

Why spend the extra money on a KDF85 filter instead of a standard carbon prefilter?

  • Many municipalities are now using chloramines instead of chlorine to treat tap water. While regular carbon filters eliminate most of the chlorine gas in water, even the highest quality filters are only able to eliminate 60-80% of chloramines. While chlorine gas dissipates from standing tap water in as little as 24 hour, chloromines last for days or weeks. KDF85 filters eliminate 95% of harmful chloromines.
  • KDF85 filters last over 6 months - over twice as long as standard carbon filters!

Now chloramines, iron, hydrogen sulphide and heavy metals don’t stand a chance against Hydro-Logic’s newest offering in replacement filters for all their water filter units.

KDF85 is the most advanced media that one can use when it comes to filtering their water along with pre-treating water before Reverse Osmosis filters.  KDF85 filters now use medical grade catalytic granular activated carbon. This ultra premium grade of carbon reduces chloramines to the lowest industry standard levels available for any carbon media.  The carbon is steam activated to provide a strong, dense product with an extremely high surface area. It has a high degree of catalytic redox activity which enhances chloramine removal. It is superior to ordinary grades of activated carbon for chloramine removal and is specially acid washed, pH buffered, and rinsed with sanitized water. This special processing minimizes the possibility of metal contaminants appearing in the effluent and ensures a neutral pH effluent. Each batch of this new carbon is fully tested for metallic contaminants.

KDF85 not only has incredible chlorine and chloramines removal capabilities but it totally eliminates chlorine and helps reduce iron, hydrogen sulphide and heavy metals due the addition of the special KDF85 media; Perfect on well or spring water sources to remove many other contaminants that can cause major problems in your garden.  Nutrient lockout can be caused by several factors in water quality.  Water high in iron and sulfur can be very common problems that lead to decreased yield and quality. These contaminants can also quickly foul Reverse Osmosis membranes, so pre-treating the water and removing them is crucial to a properly operating filter system. KDF85 replacement filters are available for all Hydro-Logic’s Reverse Osmosis and de-chlorinating filters. These filters last twice as long as the standard carbon filters that are included with the filter units. 

Your beneficial micro-organisms will thrive and be at their healthiest population by removing these harmful substances and your plants will thank you with bountiful harvest and superior quality. Pure water’s not magic, it’s logic!
