Hydro Logic Product Documents
Now chloramines, iron, hydrogen sulphide and heavy metals don't stand a chance against Hydro-Logic's newest offering in replacement filters for all their water filter units. KDF85 is the most advanced media that one can use when it comes to filtering water along with pre-treating water before Reverse Osmosis filters.
The KDF85 not only has incredible chlorine and chloramines removal capabilities but it can also be successfully used for those on well or spring water sources to remove many other contaminants that can cause major problems in your garden. Nutrient lockout can be caused by several factors in water quality. Water high in iron and sulfur can be very common problems that lead to decreased yield and quality. These contaminants can also quickly foul Reverse Osmosis membranes, so pre-treating the water and removing them is crucial to a properly operating filter system.
KDF85 replacement filters are available for all Hydro-Logic's Reverse Osmosis and de-chlorinating filters. Your beneficial micro-organisms will thrive and be at their healthiest population by removing these harmful substances. Your plants will thank you with bountiful harvest and superior quality. Pure water's not magic, it's logic!

Hydro Logic BIGboy KDF85/Catalytic Carbon Filter (HL22070) Questions & Answers
Why isn't my SmallBoy TallBoy or BigBoy reducing my PPMs?
These are sediment and dechlorinating systems, they remove sediment, chlorine, volatile organic compounds, tastes and odors. In order to reduce PPMs one needs to purchase a reverse osmosis system such as our Stealth RO100, Stealth RO200 or Evolution RO1000.
Can I drink the water out of my SmallBoy, TallBoy or BigBoy?
This depends on what type of contaminants you were hoping to filter out. These 3 systems are dechlorinating and sediment filters, they do not remove PPMs (parts per million) or harmful contaminants such as pharmaceutical residue, pesticide run-off or arsenic to name a few. This means that if your source water is not approved as drinking water (such as a stream or pond), then these systems will not make it safe. You may need to use a UV sterilizer and/or reverse osmosis to make this type of water safe to drink. If, however, your source water is city water or well water that was approved for drinking before it ran through the system, then it is still safe to drink-- probably even safer!
