SMART Under Sink Water Filter System
Leak Detector/Flood-Prevention Valve Included: Due to numerous unpredictable circumstances including installation errors, flood damage is subject to occur without a leak-detector valve. Our included leak detector/flood-prevention valve will allow the water system to be flood-proof.
Our SMART Under Sink Water Filter System reduces or removes contaminants such as chlorine & heavy metals from tap water to offer the freshest taste to you. The perfect solution for any household, this water filter system is quick and easy to install and use, attractive, and convenient.
This solid state water filter uses the latest technologies that blend the adsorption capabilities of coconut shell activated carbon with Eagle Redox Alloy® and more.
- Installs neatly under the sink.
- Comes with a beautiful faucet and all necessary installation hardware.
- Conveniently provides 10,000 gallons of water (1-3 years, or when the flow of water will automatically either stop or slow down greatly.)
- Great for homes, apartments or office use.
When considering installation, if current under sink plumbing is hard copper tubing the saddle valve would be used; for flex tubing, the T-valve would be required. While ordering a prompt will require that an installation valve is specified in order to progress through the order entry screen.
SMART Water Filter Cartridge
Water flows through a bed of media made of a special high-purity alloy blend of two dissimilar metals - copper and zinc (ERA-6500, ERA-9500). ERA-6500 and ERA-9500 are major advancements in water treatment technology that works on the electrochemical and spontaneous-oxidation-reduction (Eagle Redox Alloy®) principles. Chlorine is instantaneously and almost inexhaustibly oxidized.
Water flows through ion exchange resins, reducing heavy metals such as lead, copper, aluminum, and water hardness.
Water flows through granulated activated carbon (GAC). GAC is universally recognized and widely used as an effective adsorbent for a wide variety of organic contaminants, such as chlorine (99.9%), chemicals linked to cancer (THM's, benzene) pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, volatile organic compounds (VOC's), PCB's, MTBE's and hundreds of other chemical contaminants that may be present in water causing bad taste and odors in your drinking water.
All Crystal Quest® GAC is a mixed blend of coconut shell and catalytic GAC to address both chlorine, chloramines and these byproducts.
Carbon Block Water Filter Cartridge
Water travels through a 5-micron solid carbon cartridge for removing volatile organic carbon compounds (VOC's), insecticides, pesticides and industrial solvents and traps particles larger than 5 microns including sediment, silt, sand, and dirt.
Sediment Water Filter Cartridge
Water travels through a sediment filter cartridge that removes sediment, silt, sand, and dirt. This also helps to extend the life of the water filter system.

Our drinking water is fantastic now!
I had been using one of those cheap water filters that worked decently but I could still tell our drinking water wasn't as clean as I would have liked it to be. I began researching and found Crystal Quest. I purchased this under the sink SMART filter system about a month ago and I'm really impressed. Our water is so much better. I wasn't sure how much of a difference to expect but it was night and day for us. Prior to installation you could smell the chlorine and whatever other substances were added to our water and our water always tasted a bit metallic. Now our water tastes like we pour it out of a Fiji water bottle - clean, smooth, satisfying. I'm glad I chose this filter.
Replacement filters and a new housing
Fine as expected, replaced in kind
Excellent filter - easy to install
I replaced a Faucetmate system with this filter. Faucetmate was taken over by 3M and 3M no longer makes the proper filters. I'm happier with a Crystal Quest system anyway. I feel like they'll be supported for a while, so please don't sell out to 3M. So far my water tastes great. The filter cartridges are very big in diameter - the Faucetmates were long and thin, so I had to rearrange where I keep things under the sink. That took almost as long as the installation. My only complaints are: 1 - The bracket leaves space behind the filters. It would be better for me if the bracket were shorter so the filters fit more snugly against the cabinet and took up less space 2 - I would like a pair of 90 degree fittings to be included in the kit. That way I would take up less space left to right
Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We greatly appreciate it.
