    What it filters

    How it works

    • Use of the XL7000 to eliminate bottled water qualifies for a LEED Innovation in Design credit per US Green Building Council Credit Interpretations and Rulings CSv2.0 IDc1.

    • The XL7000 meets the WELL Building Standard for filtered drinking water from the IWBI (International WELL Building Institute).
    This product is NSF certified for near total reduction of:

    • Lead
    • Select VOCs
    • Chlorine Taste and Odor
    • Particulates Class I (including rust, manganese, sulfides, and asbestos fibers)
    • Cysts (including Cryptosporidium and Giardia)
    Its patented Integrated Membrane Pre-activated Carbon (I.M.P.A.C.T.) technology combines the efficiency of carbon media with the durability of a microporous membrane in a single cartridge. This reduces pressure and increases flow rate, resulting in longer cartridge life.

    Built-in shut-off valve inside the head assembly shuts off the water flow when cartridge is removed or not locked in place.
