CRYSTAL QUEST« Classic
Disposable Undersink Water Filter system untilizes the same
filtration technology of the
countertop disposable unit. It effectively eliminates the
impurities typically found in tap water to offer you great tasting and pure
It is also very attractive and convenient. Many
customers of conventional water filters find it very
difficult sometimes to replace the cartridge filters.
This system eliminates that problem for people who
prefer not to fuss with things like that. The
famous Crystal Quest 6 Stage Filtration system
effectively removes hundreds of contaminants from water.
This solid state water filter uses the latest
technologies that blend the adsorption capabilities of
coconut shell activated carbon with Eagle Redox Alloy«. This
combination has been tested to boost filtration capacity
to remarkable levels.

CRYSTAL QUEST Options:
you can get one of three
different models of the
CRYSTAL QUEST« Classic
Disposable Undersink Water Filter system; each having a
specified filtration capacity.

filters up to 30,000 gallons
The filter is designed to
last between 1 - 3 years. You can tell when the filter
needs changing because it will either stop working or
slow to trickle. This unique water system is great for
homes, apartments or office use.

install. follow these simple instructions
QUEST « Utilizing the latest technologies in water
industry, coupled with 30 years of manufacturing
expertise, we provide you with the most effective,
healthy, great-tasting water, conveniently, at the most
affordable price. Our products are attractive, easy to
install and use, and removes more than 500 contaminants
from water. The unique design allows for a substantial
amount of filtration media enabling more contact time
with the water. More contact time means better
6 Stages of Filtration
1 Water flows through pre and post one -
micron filter pads (1 micron equals 1/25,000th of an
inch), which removes suspended particles such as silt,
sediment, cyst (Giardia, Cryptosporidium), sand, rust,
dirt, and other un-dissolved matter.
Stage 2 and 3, water
flows through a bed of media made of a special
high-purity alloy blend of two dissimilar metals -
copper and zinc (Eagle Redox Alloy« 6500, and Eagle
9500.) Eagle Redox Alloy« is a major
advancement in water treatment technology that works on
the electro-chemical and spontaneous-oxidation-reduction
(REDOX) principles. Chlorine is instantaneously and
almost inexhaustibly oxidized. Tests on Eagle Redox
Alloy«/GAC cartridge have shown 99+% chlorine removal
even after 20,000 gallons of water passed through the
filter. In comparison, carbon
cartridges of comparable volumes drop below 90%
effectiveness after only 4,000 gallons. This is an
Iron and hydrogen sulfide are oxidized into insoluble
matter and attach to the surface of the media. Heavy
metals such as lead, mercury, copper, nickel, chromium,
cadmium, aluminum, and other dissolved metals are
removed from the water by the electrochemical process.
They are attracted to the surface of the media, much
like a magnet. The media inhibits bacterial growth
throughout the entire unit. In fact, it has been shown
to be reduced up to 90%, eliminating the need for
silver, which is commonly used in carbon-only filters
(silver is considered a pesticide by the EPA and, as
such, must be registered with them). Is copper or zinc
added to the water in any significant amount? On 2.3 ppm
chlorinated water, <0.05 mg/l copper and only 0.46 mg/l
zinc were measured. The EPA aesthetic levels are 1.0
mg/l for copper and 5.0 mg/l for zinc. Both zinc and
copper are essential minerals for good health - the FDA
recommends a daily intake of 15 mg of zinc and 2 mg of
4, water flows through ion exchange resins,
reducing heavy metals such as lead, copper, aluminum,
and water hardness.
5, water flows through granulated activated
carbon (GAC). GAC is universally recognized and widely
used as an effective adsorbent for a wide variety of
organic contaminants, such as chlorine (99.9%),
chemicals linked to cancer (THM's, benzene) pesticides,
herbicides, insecticides, volatile organic compounds (VOC's),
PCB's, MTBE's and hundreds of other chemical
contaminants that may be present in water causing bad
taste and odors in your drinking water.
Carbon is extremely porous and provides a large surface
area for contaminants to collect. Carbon-only filters
must also use their capacity for chlorine removal,
resulting in a shortened life. They also may use a
bituminous coal carbon, which is good at removing
chlorine, but not as effective at removing chemicals. We
use a high-grade coconut shell carbon that is most
effective at removing chemicals. Coconut shell carbon
provides a significantly higher volume of micro-pores
than either coal, wood or lignite based carbon. As a
result, it is more effective than other carbon types in
removing trihalomethanes (THM's) and other chemicals
from municipally supplied water. Since our REDOX media
removes the chlorine before it reaches the carbon, the
carbon capacity is not wasted on chlorine and is free to
concentrate more effectively on organic contaminants.
In stage 6, water flows through another one-micron
filtration pad for further reduction of undesirable
particles. The end result is a great reduction or total
elimination of a wide variety of contaminants.
