We designed the 3M™ Aqua-Pure™ Whole House Sanitary Quick Change Water Filter System AP904 as an activated carbon filter system with a nominal heavy duty particulate reduction rating of 5 microns and 100,000 gallon capacity. It reduces sediment, and chlorine taste and odor. We also combine scale inhibition media to help prevent scale build-up and corrosion in hot water-using appliances and pipes.
The 3M™ Aqua-Pure™ Whole House Water Filtration Systems, AP900 Series reduce water contaminants such as sediment, chlorine taste, odour and scale. The water filter systems improve water quality and taste while supplying cleaner, clearer water to every water source point in the house. These systems are referred to as point-of-entry (POE) systems and are installed downstream from the water metre or well pump. They help protect plumbing and fixtures while reducing unpleasant taste, colour and odour. The AP902 Series features include: 1” NPT Stainless Steel inlet and outlet plumbing connections, with a peak flow rate of up to 75.7 lpm. It has a maximum system operating pressure of 125 psi /8.6 Bar/ 862 kPa and an operating temperature of 100 °F/37.8 °C. The AP902 system incorporates a non-woven pleat media that reduces sediment down to 5 µm nominal. The AP903 incorporates carbon block filtration with a non-woven pleat media to reduce sediment down to 5 µm nominal. The AP904 system incorporates scale inhibition media, carbon block filtration and a non-woven pleat media to reduce sediment down to 5 µm nominal. It also removes chlorine taste and odour, as well as inhibiting scale build up. CFR-21 compliant and food and drinking water safe. Cartridges are sanitary in design, requiring no contact with the filter media during cartridge change-out. The scale inhibition feature uses polyphosphates in small quantities to bind calcium and magnesium hardness minerals, preventing them from precipitating out and building up on metallic surfaces which can reduce flow rates throughout the home’s plumbing system. Our innovative Sanitary Quick Change (SQC) design allows for fast and easy cartridge change-outs without having to contact the filter media or the need for a filter wrench. The AP902 Series is manufactured with a head assembly that includes an integral mounting bracket. The 304 stainless steel head allows for ‘sweat in place’ installation and is a corrosion resistant material that provides long service life and won't affect the taste of the drinking water. The stainless steel head comes with a 25 year warranty for worry-free ownership. The AP900 Series line also includes an electronic countdown timer fridge magnet to remind the owner when to change the cartridge. Maintenance of a whole-house water filter system is as simple as replacing a light bulb with a simple quarter turn of the cartridge, or placing a service call with your local plumbing professional.
