Ametek water filters are steadily growing as a good water filter system
for homes. Let’s take a brief look at the brand and then a review of the
most popular Ametek filters on the market.
The name Ametek may sound new or strange to you but their filters are not. That is because Culligan actually manufactures Ametek filters.
If there is a style or type of water filter that you are looking for, Ametek has one to offer.
Their product line consists of several types of water filtration systems such as under counter, counter top, whole house filter and shower filters.
They are able to remove 99% of cryptosporidium, Entamoeba, Toxoplasma, and bacteria.
Ametek filters are primarily sold on their main website but you will find these filters online and in major stores such as Wal-Mart, Home Depot and Lowes.
Ametek CBC- 10 Water Filter (Whole House Water Filter):
This is no doubt the best water filter system offered by Ametek. With a micron rating of 0.5, it removes 99% of cryptosporidium, Entamoeba, Toxoplasma, and bacteria.
The low micron rating means that 99% of contaminants are removed from your water.
In addition, it reduces bad taste and odor, chlorine and cysts. This is the filter that will leave your water pure and clean.
The Ametek water filter CBC-10 is an under counter water filter that uses carbon to purify the water.
The flow rate is only 1 GPM. To some persons this may seem a bit slow. Personally, I rather slow 99% pure water than fast less than 95% water.
Besides, you only have to change your water filter cartridge once every six (6) months. The Ametek CBC-10 has a capacity of 1000 gallons before its next filter change.
Ametek GAC- 10 Water Filter (Whole House Water Filter):
The GAC-10 is not as popular to consumers like the CBC-10. The main reason is its micron ratings.
The GAC-10 has a micron rating of 20 which allows basically a lot of contaminants, bacteria and elements to pass through your water.
This ametek water filter cost less than $12 and I can see why.
Not to say that the cost is an indication of what it can do because there are water filters on the market that are reasonably priced and can perform better than the GAC-10.
Even though this filter still allows some amount of chlorine to pass through, this filter is suitable for anyone looking to fight chlorine taste and odor.
In fact, it is NSF/ANSI standard approved.
But this would not be our first water filter recommendation.
Ametek CT-10 Counter Top Water Filters
These filters are one of the easiest counter top water filters to install. No tools needed.
It screws easily onto existing faucets in just seconds and the water filter parts are durable.
They are very good at reducing bad taste and odor in your drinking water. Have fresh filtered water in minutes.
Its small size makes it a nice fit for counter-tops. It does not take up much space and gives your kitchen a touch of class.
To use the Ametek CT-10 countertop filter system, pull the diverter valve stem to receive filtered water from the tap.
Culligan Ametek US-560 Under Sink Water Filter System
This under counter water filter by Ametek fits easily under your kitchen sink.
The Ametek US-560 is very good at producing healthier and better tasting drinking water.
It does so by removing chlorine and other contaminants harmful to the water. In fact, this model is perfect for getting rid of bad tasting and foul odor water.
Culligan Ametek RV-600 RV Inline Water Filter with Hose
Taking your family and friends out of town on your RV? Then try the Culligan Ametek RV-600 RV Inline Water Filter.
It can fit most recreational vehicles or boats and will remove contaminants from your cooking and drinking water.
Now you can enjoy great tasting water after awhile on the road.
Contaminants are removed by using a granular activated carbon filter to reduce chlorine taste and odor, bad taste and odor, and sediment.
The filter has a lifespan of 2000 gallons and is disposable.
If you find that the installation is difficult, you may want to get the help of a professional but remember that the hose and plastic plugs used in the installation are available with the water filter system.
Culligan Ametek ISH-100 Shower Filter System
The Ametek shower water filter fits easily onto most shower heads. This is a basic shower filter that can be used to help prevent dry skin and unhealthy hair.
Why we say basic is because it only removes about 97% of chlorine and bad odor from the water.
97% is a bit low compared to other brands, for example Aquasana shower filter but you may want to know that it is NSF certified for the reduction of chlorine.
Despite that fact, Ametek shower filter has a long lifespan of 10,000 gallons of water and is comes with a one year warranty.
In addition, it requires a water pressure of 30-125 psi (2.1-8.6 bars) and a water temperature of 40-100°F (4.4-37.8°C).
Overall, Ametek water filters offer a good alternative to the more expensive bottled water.
