Lead Reduction in Schools

In schools, water fountains are the main source children get their water from. So it is important that the water in these fountains are lead free and safe to drink. For this, we recommend a Point of Use system with the Pentek CBR2 filter.  This filter provides several forms of protection.

  • NSF 42 and 53 standards
  • Reduces cyst, lead and mercury down to 99.95%
  • Taste and odor reduction
  • 20,000 gallons capacity
  • .5 micron rating

There are two different types of CBR2 filters; the CBR2-10R, 155403-43 and the CBR2-10, 155268-43. The Pentek CBR2-10 water filter has a higher flow rate than the Pentek CBR2-10R water filter, though CBR2-10R has a built-in flow restrictor (0.6 gpm). This allows for maximum contact time on the carbon to get even more sediment out of the water. The filter is made up powdered activated carbon with a specially designed absorbent medium for lead and mercury reduction. You can install these at the water fountain. The foot print of the CBR2 system is very minimal with a height of about 13” and width of less than 6”. The filter is only 10″ long and just drops in the bowl. This makes for easy replacement.
