5 Micron Magna Filter:
“Magna” translates to “great” in Greek, and true to its name, this filter offers the largest surface area available on the market. It’s also 100% made in the USA, setting it apart from the commonly overseas-manufactured filters of our competitors.

Washed Quartz Gravel:
Acts as an excellent substrate for upflow filtration, enhancing the overall effectiveness of the system.

This bacteriostatic media not only maintains cleanliness but also removes 50% - 80% of chlorine through the redox process, significantly extending the lifespan of the carbon.

Coconut Shell Granular Activated Carbon:
Renowned for imparting a sweet taste to water, this carbon primarily targets chemical and chlorine removal, thereby enhancing the longevity of catalytic carbon.

Catalytic Carbon:
Exceptionally effective at eliminating chloramine, its longevity is maximized by preceding it with KDF-55 and Granular Activated Carbon, ensuring your water is high quality and safe.

A Commitment to American Made Materials and Transparency

Unlike many water filtration brands, US Water Systems believes in the value of American Made products. This gives a greater degree of control and visibility of the manufacturing process, and overall product quality. It is convenient, cheap, and more profitable to outsource assembly and manufacturing, however we understand the value of keeping industry here in North America. Unfortunately, certain commodified products simply are not manufactured domestically, and US Water Systems is on a mission to change the status quo of our industry.
