The Matrikx Pb1 20″ x 4.5″ filter is top of the range for town chlorinated water supplies.  This is our first choice extruded coconut carbon filter for whole house POE town water applications.  It has excellent abilities for the reduction of chlorine taste and odour, VOC, Cyst and Lead*.

KX Technologies® and Filtrex Technologies®, both Marmon Water/Berkshire Hathaway companies, have teamed up to combine the very best of their MATRIKX® and GREENBLOCK® carbon block lines, into a single world class product offering. The new and improved product line is the result of decades of experience in R&D, design, formulation, and manufacture of high-performance carbon block filters.

MATRIKX® Pb1® 20″ x 4.5″ filters, powered by GREENBLOCK®, are made from 100% coconut shell carbon, a renewable, and ecologically sustainable material. The carbon is processed into blocks using a unique binder system and proprietary manufacturing techniques to produce filters with a greater number of micro-pores and available carbon surface area, which display superior adsorption capacity and kinetic dynamics.

Do not use the Matrikx Pb1 20″ filter for drinking water with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after the system. Filters are designed to fit most standard household and commercial or industrial housings. Performance claims are based on independent lab results and manufacturer’s internal test data. Actual results obtained will vary with various combinations of organic contaminants, changes in pH or other conditions encountered in actual use. All information presented here is based on data believed to be reliable. It is offered for evaluation and verification, but is not to be considered a warranty of any kind. Flush new cartridges until water runs clear prior to use.

Change filter at end of life or every 12 months.  Whichever is first.
