Outline

This kitchen faucet with built-in water purifier takes filter cartridge life and the esthetics of the kitchen sink to a higher level, but not without delivering the ease of use demanded by busy cooks. The filter cartridge employs fine powdered charcoal made with state-of-the-art ceramic-based technology that effectively doubles the service-life of conventional filters. Moreover, by downsizing the internal parts of the cartridge and tightening the seams between faucet parts, the faucet has a solid engineered look on par with high-end products. Plus, the controls for filtering and dispensing water are concentrated at the tip of the faucet where nearest the user, making it easy to select just the right type of water needed.
