The CB3 is the highest performance carbon block
cartridge on the market today. It is used in OMNI Undersink filters CBF3,
OT32, and OB3.
The CB3's carbon block removes chlorine and odors, harmful bacteria like Giardia
and Cryptosporidium, lead, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) like Atrazine
(a herbicide) and Lindane (a pesticide), as well as 32 other VOCs, to give you
great tasting, safe drinking water right from the tap, or from a dedicated
faucet, depending on the unit selected.
