See how much contaminants were removed after being filtered with Crystal
CRYSTAL QUEST« Mega Countertop Water Filter system eliminates
the impurities typically found in tap water to offer you great tasting
and pure drinking water. It is also very attractive and economical.
This configuration provides eight stages of filtration to produce
sparklingly clean water. It starts with an advanced sediment filter,
then water flows through
Crystal Quest 6 Stage
Filtration system, and then final polishing is done with
a solid state 5 micron carbon filter. This configuration is the most
robust Crystal Quest countertop configuration which effectively removes
hundreds of contaminants from water. The latest technologies are
employed in the Crystal Quest Multi-Stage filter; combining the
adsorption capabilities of coconut shell activated carbon with Eagle
Redox Alloy«. This combination has been tested to boost filtration
capacity to remarkable levels.
Making Alkaline Water:
After filtering your water with you CRYSTAL QUEST« Water Filter, use one
of our Alkaline Booster
Drops to make alkaline water.
CRYSTAL QUEST Options: you can get one of three different
models of the CRYSTAL QUEST« Mega Countertop Water Filter system; with
each of the 6-stage filters having a specified filtration capacity.
CRYSTAL QUEST« Mega
Multi-Stage Plus filters up to 10,000 gallons (1-3 years)
CRYSTAL QUEST« Mega
Multi-Stage Ultra filters up to 20,000 gallons (2-4 years)
CRYSTAL QUEST« Mega
Multi-Stage Ultimate filters up to 30,000 gallons (3-5 years)
The filter is designed to
last between 1 - 3 years. You can tell when the filter needs changing
because it will either stop working or slow to trickle. This unique
water system is great for homes, apartments or office use.
The Crystal Quest Mega filter is quick and easy to install.
follow these simple instructions:
Check your thread type
outside threads: no adapters needed
Inside threads: select which adapter to use
Remove aerator from
your faucet on which the filter will be installed
Determine the type of
threads on your faucet. If your faucet has outside threads then no
adapters should be needed. If your faucet has inside threads then
you will need to select the correct adapter and washer and screw
then into the faucet and tighten manually. The adapters included
with your Crystal Quest Mega
filter will fit most faucets.
Screw the diverter
valve onto the faucet, turning swivel collar to tighten. Make
certain that the gasket is positioned securely between the diverter
valve and the faucet or adapter. Rotate diverter valve stem to
desired position. The swivel color may need retightening.
Turn on the water then
turn the diverter handle to send water to the filter system.

CRYSTAL QUEST « Utilizing the latest technologies in water industry,
coupled with 30 years of manufacturing expertise, we provide you with
the most effective, healthy, great-tasting water, conveniently, at the
most affordable price. Our products are attractive, easy to install and
use, and removes more than 500 contaminants from water. The unique
design allows for a substantial amount of filtration media enabling more
contact time with the water. More contact time means better filtration.
1 - 5 Micron Sediment Filtration:
through a sediment filter cartridge that removes sediment, silt, sand
and dirt. This helps the 6 Stage filter to function at its optimum
longer extend the life of water filter. This is CRYSTAL QUEST's pleated
cartridge. It out performs wound, spun, melt blown, resin bonded and
other "depth" type filter elements because it is pleated to provide
increased surface area and longer life.
Crystal Quest's 6 Stages
2: Water flows through pre and post one - micron filter pads
(1 micron equals 1/25,000th of an inch), which removes suspended
particles such as silt, sediment, cyst (Giardia, Cryptosporidium), sand,
rust, dirt, and other un-dissolved matter.
Stage 3 and 4, water flows through a
bed of media made of a special high-purity alloy blend of two dissimilar
metals - copper and zinc (Eagle
Redox Alloy« 6500, and Eagle Redox Alloy«
Eagle Redox Alloy« is a major advancement in water treatment technology
that works on the electro-chemical and spontaneous-oxidation-reduction (REDOX)
principles. Chlorine is instantaneously and almost inexhaustibly
oxidized. Tests on Eagle Redox Alloy«/GAC cartridge have shown 99+%
chlorine removal even after 20,000 gallons of water passed through the
filter. In comparison, carbon cartridges of comparable volumes drop
below 90% effectiveness after only 4,000 gallons. This is an important
Iron and hydrogen sulfide
are oxidized into insoluble matter and attach to the surface of the
media. Heavy metals such as lead, mercury, copper, nickel, chromium,
cadmium, aluminum, and other dissolved metals are removed from the water
by the electrochemical process. They are attracted to the surface of the
media, much like a magnet. The media inhibits bacterial growth
throughout the entire unit. In fact, it has been shown to be reduced up
to 90%, eliminating the need for silver, which is commonly used in
carbon-only filters (silver is considered a pesticide by the EPA and, as
such, must be registered with them). Is copper or zinc added to the
water in any significant amount? On 2.3 ppm chlorinated water, <0.05
mg/l copper and only 0.46 mg/l zinc were measured. The EPA aesthetic
levels are 1.0 mg/l for copper and 5.0 mg/l for zinc. Both zinc and
copper are essential minerals for good health - the FDA recommends a
daily intake of 15 mg of zinc and 2 mg of copper.
5, water flows through ion exchange resins, reducing heavy
metals such as lead, copper, aluminum, and water hardness.
water flows through granulated activated carbon (GAC). GAC is
universally recognized and widely used as an effective adsorbent for a
wide variety of organic contaminants, such as chlorine (99.9%),
chemicals linked to cancer (THM's, benzene) pesticides, herbicides,
insecticides, volatile organic compounds (VOC's), PCB's, MTBE's and
hundreds of other chemical contaminants that may be present in water
causing bad taste and odors in your drinking water.
Carbon is extremely porous and provides a large surface area for
contaminants to collect. Carbon-only filters must also use their
capacity for chlorine removal, resulting in a shortened life. They also
may use a bituminous coal carbon, which is good at removing chlorine,
but not as effective at removing chemicals. We use a high-grade coconut
shell carbon that is most effective at removing chemicals. Coconut shell
carbon provides a significantly higher volume of micro-pores than either
coal, wood or lignite based carbon. As a result, it is more effective
than other carbon types in removing trihalomethanes (THM's) and other
chemicals from municipally supplied water. Since our REDOX media removes
the chlorine before it reaches the carbon, the carbon capacity is not
wasted on chlorine and is free to concentrate more effectively on
Stage 7, water flows through another
one-micron filtration pad for further reduction of undesirable
particles. The end result is a great reduction or total elimination of a
wide variety of contaminants.
8 - water travel
through a solid carbon cartridge for removing volatile organic carbon
compounds (VOC's), insecticides, pesticides and industrial solvents.
