BRS Universal Carbon Block Filter - 1 Micron
Why does BRS recommend this?
We spent a ton of time researching and testing to find the best carbon block available while still being reasonable when it comes to price. There are other filters that work well however do not last as long. By simply just looking down the center of the carbon block you can see why the Universal Carbon blocks are superior to the competitors. If you have a well, or city water the universal blocks will work for everyone in almost all reverse osmosis systems.
BRS Universal Carbon Blocks have been specially formulated for industry leading chloramine and chlorine reduction making it the highest performance and longest lasting carbon block in our industry.
- Chlorine 35,000 @ 1 GPM*
- Chloramines 3,500 @ 0.5 GPM*
- NSF Certified Materials
New: BRS Universal Carbon Blocks were developed to be the best industry solution for chloramines, chlorine and well water to help make filter selection easier for everyone. The new block represents the latest in carbon technology by increasing surface area, volume of carbon and catalytic sites within the carbons pore network.
BRS Universal Carbon Blocks are manufactured using high performance catalytic active carbon combined with a new binder system technology which maximizes the availability of the critical catalytic sites. The combination of advanced carbon technology, increased volume of carbon contained in each filter and proprietary manufacturing processes delivers exceptionally high chloramine, chlorine, VOC and general chemical performance.
- Compatible with all BRS systems as well as all competitor systems which use a standard 10” filter.
- Specifically formulated for superior Chloramine reduction 1 µm (micron) Nominal Filtration*
- Chlorine 35,000 @ 1 GPM**
- Chloramines 3,500 @ 0.5 GPM***
- High chemical adsorption
- 30% more carbon than standard blocks****
*Nominal Micron rating for all above - 1 micron

We recommend two of the 1 micron universal carbon blocks for best coverage of chloramines in the water. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
The Universal Carbon Block will fit all of our 10" canisters just fine. Most of our RO systems however use 1/4" ports which may be something to watch out for. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
With the pressure drop from where it typically is. This is the easiest way. You can also test the water coming out of the carbon block with a chlorine test strip to ensure it is removing the chlorine.
Great question! The lower the micron the smaller the particulates it will capture. A 1 micron filter will capture smaller particulates than a 5 micron filter. :-)
Overall for best chloramines coverage you will want to use two 1 micron Universal Carbon Blocks. We have created a video on this exact topic included below! Overall the extra carbon block will not double the life however will ensure the RO membrane has better protection and it will have a small increase on time spent. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
