Aqua-Pure AP217 Filter (5 Micron) Cartridge:

The Aqua Pure AP217 water filter replacement cartridge uses two stages of filtration. The first stage employs the exclusive Aqua-Pure graded density pre-filter made from an exclusive process using pure white cellulose fibers. This unique process offers unsurpassed filtration performance. Then, the water enters a deep bed of specially formulated activated carbon where the water comes into contact with hundreds of thousands of activated sites which effectively reduce unwanted tastes, odors, and chlorine. 

NOTE: The AquaPure AP217 filter replaces the Cuno CFS217. The only difference is the label on the cartridge. If we no longer have the AquaPure labeled AP217 cartridge in stock, we will automatically ship the Cuno CFS217.

Aqua-Pure AP217 Filter Cartridge 5 Micron Features:

  • Reduction Claims: Sediment, chlorine taste and odor @ 2 GPM
  • Applications: Drinking, cooking, and all other food applications
  • Contains a pre and post filter with activated granular carbon for maximum effectiveness
  • Protection against pressure surges and water hammer
  • NSF 42 Certified
  • Long life graded density depth filtration manufactured from FDA CFR-21 compliant materials
