The AquaMetix GB Carbon Block is a black, solid carbon block filter that removes fluoride, pesticides, herbicides, chromium, heavy metals and about 200 other chemicals. It does not have a ceramic shell (like the AquaMetix 7" and 9" Ceramic Candles). It is intended to be used with treated municipal water supplies (which are almost always bacteria-free). Carbon Block filters are not rated for bacterial removal. We are aware that one well-known water filter company sells a black carbon block candle and claims both bacterial and virus removal, but there are many global manufacturers of carbon block filters and none of them claim bacterial or virus removal.
If your water comes from a municipal supplier, it has been chlorinated to kill bacteria, plus it is probably fluoridated. Our AquaMetix GB Carbon Block filter will remove the chlorine and fluoride, plus just about every other chemical.
You DO NOT need an add-on fluoride filter with the AquaMetix GB because it removes 97.5% of the fluoride.
Each candle is shipped with a rubber washer and wing nut.

Why Buy the AquaMetix GB Carbon Block Filter?
- Best Candle Available for Municipal Water - it removes all the common chemicals, as other manufacturers' candles do, but it also removes Fluoride and Heavy Metals - all in one candle - no add-on candles required.
- Lower Priced - the price per candle is lower than most of our competitors, and no other brand can remove fluoride without adding an expensive second filter.
