- Pollution filtered water comfortably available from any tap in the house (shower, bathtub, washbasin).
- Spring-water not only for drinking purposes, but also for your skin and hair.
- For even more effective drinking water filtration, compared to QUADRO 60 (Double flow rate and double retention capacity).
- Installation at water entry to the house (right behind the water meter).
- Cold- and hot water are thus filtered, as the filter is installed prior to the hot water boiler resp. -flow heater.
- No replacement of the existing taps required.
- By the central installation method, the filter is mostly located conveniently in the basement — no storage space wasted in the kitchen.
- The effective power of 4 cartridges in parallel, for cleanest water for cooking, shower, bath, ...
- Filter unit made from everlasting high-grade CrNiMo-stainless steel (1.4541) und POM (Hostaform C 2571).
- The filter housing - without cartridge - allows a maximum flow of 100 l/min (at 4 bar).
Compatible filter cartridges
- All variants of the WFP-L filter cartridges may be used in the Carbonit QUADRO 120 device (4 cartridges are needed). All WFP-Ls provide effective retention of heavy metals, pesticides as well as chlorine and medical residues.
- We keep the WFP-L filter cartridge in six different filter meshes. The following table shall give you an overview of the benefits and characteristics of the different variants.

* The indicated retention rates refer to the nominal flow rate at 4 bar. If the actual pressure or the real flow rate is lower, the contact time between water and activated carbon gets longer. Because of this the real retention rates tend to be higher than stated.
- Be aware that not all cartridge types can be used for filtering the entire water flow of a house — max. flow limitation.
- Please select the filter mesh size according the required flow rate.
- For hygienic reasons, we recommend replacement of the cartridges every 6 months (according to DIN 1988).
