Rainshow’r,® an innovator and inventor of the best quality water dechlorinators and filters, went to its long-time suppliers and asked for their expertise in developing the Breakthrough carbon block water filter.
Rainshow’r® combined its design talents with internationally recognized technology from Carbon Block Technology, Inc. and then added to the mix QMP’s worldwide reputation for engineering, molding and metal work. These three recognized water industry companies have used their combined 75 years of experience to introduce the Breakthrough, a revolutionary new water filter from the Cameo Green line of Rainshow’r® products. While Rainshow’r® did not create a new concept in water filters what it did was to bring to the market a technology which was already known, but the Breakthrough is more efficient, gets better results, and at a lower price. Simply put, the Breakthrough does it better. The Breakthrough and all its components are U.S. made by American craftsmen. After 25 years Rainshow’r® continues to bet on America.
The Condor drinking water filter can use a 5 micron carbon block filter. They are great for chlorine and sediment reduction. In addition they will reduce a number of organic contaminants. Recommended replacement of the cartridge is at 1,000 gallons, this breaks down to about 3 gallons a day for one year. Heavy sediment could reduce the filters life. Replacements are American made.
The Condor drinking water filter can use a 0.5 submicron carbon block filter. The micron sizing is 10 times smaller than the 5 micron block and is designed as a cyst reduction filter. In addition it will reduce both chlorine and chloramines. Recommended replacement of the cartridge is at 1,000 gallons, this breaks down to about 3 gallons a day for one year. Replacements are American made and a great value at these performance levels.
A micron is a unit of measure equivalent to a millionth of a meter. It is used to measure the size of particulate matter and cysts found in water. See diagram for micron size comparison. At the submicron level parasites can be found in your water. These include giardia and cryptosporidium. Our submicron cartridge found in the BT-300 and BT-400 was designed to keep those nasty parasites out of your water and out of your body.
* Both the 5 micron and 0.5 sub micron blocks are 9 in. in length and are designed with double o-rings for easy replacement.
** Filter cartridge life can very depending on daily use and quality of source water. All filter components are Prop 65 compliant.
