The CBR2-10 and CBR2-10R are advanced multimedia cartridges designed to reduce chlorine taste and odor, and other contaminants.

CBR2 Series cartridges are manufactured using a patented process, and combine powdered activated carbon (PAC) with a specially designed adsorbent medium for lead and mercury reduction.

These cartridges are protected by Endurawrap, a uniquely formulated polyolefin bilaminate prefilter, designed to significantly increase the useful life of the cartridge by trapping sediment that typically plugs carbon block cartridges.

The CBR2-10R has a built-in flow restrictor (0.6 gpm) to allow for maximum contact time.
