Whole House System WH-002B-RF-Silver (un-chlorinated water system for Tanks, Dams and soft water bores). This re-fillable carbon cartridge has silver nitrate impregnated carbon, if you use standard carbons in un-chlorinated water filter systems (without a UV steraliser) the carbon simply becomes a bacteria breeding ground, silver nitrate doesn't allow bacteria to grow on it's surfaces.

When a UV is selected we normally supply the unit on 2 single brackets rather than the single twin bracket so the UV can be plumbed after the sediment filter but before the carbon filter because UV sterilisers can give a burnt flavour (when algae is present in the water) to the water first up in the morning, this is flavour is easily removed with the carbon filter.
