FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
(1) WHY IS THIS FILTER SYSTEM BETTER THAN OTHERS?
A. The Ten Stage Filtration System contains the premier, patented, 10-Stage contaminant removing filter. It lasts three times as long as the common carbon block filters (1500 gallons versus 500 gallons).
B. It fIlters contaminants by bonding the contaminants with the media inside the filter.
Carbon Block filters sieve some contaminants which causes the block to clog easily.
C. If a filter is not changed in a timely manner it will dump contaminants into the water at concentrations higher than the original tap water. New Wave Enviro will remind you by post card or e-mail when it is time to change your cartridge so that "dumping" does not occur. Simply mail us your warranty card so we can remind you.
D. Its' price is the most reasonable and affordable when compared to other major brands that remove as many contaminants as the New Wave Premium Filter removes.
(2) WHAT DOES THE TEN STAGE FILTER REMOVE?

(3) WHAT DOES THE lO-STAGE FILTER LEAVE IN THE WATER?
Inert Minerals such as Magnesium, Potassium, and Chlorides and Fluoride. Some people are concerned about fluoride. In these cases where a consumer wants fluoride removed, we recommend New Wave's Reverse Osmosis System.
(4) HOW LONG DOES ITS REPLACEABLE FILTER CARTRIDGE LAST?
Each filter cartridge should be changed after 1500 gallons. This would be approximately one year for a family off our, assuming they each drank: 1f2 gallon a day and the family washes fruits and vegetables in filtered water.
Note: It is increasingly important to use filtffed water for a variety of kitchen needs besides drinking water. For example, mere and more imported fruits and vegetables have been found to have Giardia or Cryptosporidium on them plus these hard shelled Cysts can be present in your water supply. Filtered water is recommended for rice and pasta since boiling does not remove chlorine from water.
(5) HOW DOES ONE CHANGE ITS FILTER CARTRIDGE?
Unlike many brands, you do not have to throw the whole system away. You simply unscrew the housing, remove the old cartridge and drop in a new filter cartridge.
Cartridges are readily available nationwide.
(6) IS THE NEW WAVE PREMIUM FILTER TESTED & APPROVED?
The New Wave Premium Filter has been extensively tested by Truesdale Laboratories, Inc. an EP A approved Lab which is certified to do filter testing and tests to the same EPA protocols as NSF.
