    Hello everyone!

    I’ve been reading through this forum and found a ton of useful info. Thanks to you all for contributing.

    My municipal water contains chloramine, fluoride, minor contaminants. I’ve been acquiring parts for my undersink water system and had a few questions regarding the correct placement of the filters. My current idea for a setup is as follows:

    3 canisters slimline 10”
    1. 1 micron sediment
    2. 1 micron Matrikx Chloraguard CB
    3. 0.5 micron Matrikx PB1 CB

    Inline on top of 3 canister bracket
    4. 0.02 micron hollow fibre UF membrane

    2 canisters slimline 10”
    5. Aries alumina fluoride filter
    6. Aries KDF55/GAC filter


    Should the KDF/GAC filter be in position 2 before the carbon blocks?

    Should the fluoride filter be before of after UF?

    Would a carbon block in position 6 be better then KDF/GAC?

    Should I run all filters first and have the UF last before the faucet?

    Is there a better setup using different filters that anyone recommends?

    Just looking to you all for some guidance. I’ve read a ton but I couldn’t find many answers about this. Thank you in advance!
