Ultrafiltration (UF) Water Filter Membrane
Ultrafiltration (UF) is an important purification technology used for the production of high-purity water. UF is effective for the removal of colloids, proteins, bacteria, viruses, parasites protozoa, and pyrogens, (e.g., gram-negative bacterial endotoxins), and other organic molecules larger than 0.01 Micron size and most other water contaminations known today. Also removes pesticides and herbicides, as well as the hardness in water and some salt.

Simple and fast
I found this filter as a replacement for a similar filter made by Filtrex, which is nearly impossible to find now. It was a perfect replacement and is working very well in my RO system. Crystal Quest is the only other manufacturer that I have found that makes a cartridge in this size that is able to filter below 0.2 microns.
My home in a rural area has a 30 ft deep water well, which produces good water. Just to be safe I have been using whole house ultrafiltration membrane filters from Crystal Quest for the past 10 years. I test the water twice a year, always with good results. Also use a multistage filter on the kitchen sink. I initially consulted with one of their engineers about the filters and got good advice. I will continue purchasing filters from them, even though I am not too fond of the recent price increase. We all got to make a living.
