The Aquacera NilusTwo Twin Undersink Fluoride Plus Water Filter is a Twin in-line pressure filter system that uses our larger Imperial size filter cartridges allowing for higher flow rates and longer life. The inlet & outlet are 3/8" push-fit connectors and includes a DIY installation kit which includes most parts needed for installation, including a faucet, tubing, mounting bracket & screws, and fittings.
The first stage CeraMetix Filter
The CeraMetix® OBE filter cartridge combines our class leading ceramic micro porous outer shell with our AquaMetix® core block technology. The ceramic shell and our AquaMetix® block core combines mechanical filtration and physical adsorption processes to reduce a wide variety of drinking water contaminants of both aesthetic and health concern. AquaMetix® is made from the highest quality coconut shell based activated carbon and other superior adsorbent materials. Utilizing a unique compression molding manufacturing process, the base materials are melded into a solid block having a very uniform pore structure that ensures filtration consistency and high performance. The dense pore structure and vast surface area of the compressed carbon and specialty adsorbents is designed to improve taste and odor as well as to reduce chlorine, chloramine, volatile organic compounds, MTBE, lead, mercury, asbestos, arsenic and fluoride.
The cleanable ceramic shell is designed to remove suspended solids, pathogenic bacteria and cysts. The CeraMetix® elements have been tested in accordance with NSF protocols for cyst, turbidity, particulates, lead, chloramines and chlorine reduction (Class 1).

The second stage AquaMetix Filter
AquaMetix® is a proprietary matrix comprising of at least two types of activated carbon, combined with proprietary Zeolite minerals, structurally bound with polymers into a highly porous block filter form.
AquaMetix® combines the highest FDA-compliant raw materials, with cutting-edge manufacturing methods resulting in unparalleled performance in an exclusively U.S.A. Manufactured product.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
How many gallons are the filters good for if they are set up on city water? When would I know to change the filters?
CeraMetix has a capacity of around 1,200 gallons. The AquaMetix is: Fluoride—500 Gallons
Chloramines—3500 Gallons Lead—3500 Gallons. You will get the bad taste back, or the flow rate will drop way down. We recommend they be changed at least every year.
How much room do you need under the kitchen sink
The system measurements are approximately 12" L x 14" H x 5" W ( you will need additional height inches to remove the sumps and replace the filters ie total 17-18")
Does this also remove salmonella?
Yes it does remove salmonella.
Will this filter remove coliform bacteria?
Yes it will.
