Osmio Chlorplus Whole House Filter System
The Osmio Chlorplus Whole House Water Filter System is designed for chloramine removal for the whole house or can be used for any point of use (i.e. under sink). Chloramine is commonly used in low concentrations as a secondary disinfectant for mains tap water treatment, as an alternative or in addition to regular chlorine disinfection.
Chloramine is fast becoming a disinfection chemical of choice amongst water treatment companies due to the fact that it produces fewer regulated total halogenated disinfection by-products. However, the main concern here is that it can produce greater concentrations of unregulated iodinated disinfection by-products and N-nitrosodimethylamine. Both iodinated disinfection by-products and N-nitrosodimethylamine have been shown to be genotoxic.*

Standard activated carbon filters whilst highly efficient at removing chlorine are not effective at the removal of chloramine because they require a very long contact time (meaning the amount of time the water is exposed to the filtration media at the current flow rate), which means a large volume of carbon is needed. For thorough removal, up to four times the contact time of catalytic carbon may be required.
The Chlorplus filter is designed to remove chloramines and chlorine effectively and filters down to 1 micron. The filter life varies according to the amount of chloramine in the water:
Chloramine Reduction @ concentration of 2ppm to 0.5ppm: 946350 litres
Chloramine Reduction @ concentration of 1ppm to 0.1ppm:: 36800 litres
Chloramine Reduction @ concentration of 3ppm to 0.5ppm: 13250 litres
The first filter in the full system is a 5 micron pleated sediment filter which filters particles and sediments to 5 micron, an effective pre-filter to protect the Chlorplus filter. This cartridge uses a chemically resistant pleated polyester media which provides increased surface area and longer life and the benefit of being cleanable and reusable.
