The head will automatically cut off the water supply as soon as you undo the filter.

Filtration Process

The 3MHC351-S is a three stage filter with the following filtration process:

Stage 1: Sediment filtration

After water enters the filter, particulate matter is reduced using a fine 1 micron sediment pad. It will reduce all types of solid particulate matter including rust, sand, silt, dirt, algae, and much more.

Stage 2: Activated Carbon 

Next, the water flows through a solid carbon block. As the water pushes through, chemical contaminants will adhere to the pores of the carbon. It dramatically reduces a wide range of chemical contaminants including chlorine, chloramines, volatile organic compounds, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals and much more.

The carbon also reduces any unpleasant odours or flavours in your water, making it much more palatable and enjoyable to drink.

Stage 3: Polyphosphate 

In the final stage, the water runs through food-grade polyphosphate granules. If the water is hard, the polyphosphate will begin to dissolve, coating dissolved calcium and magnesium ions so they cannot form scale as easily on your sinks and taps. A great way to avoid unsightly scale build-up and protect your caravan from damage.
