US Water Calcite Cartridge to Re-Mineralize Reverse Osmosis Water and Raise pH – 2.5” x 10
The US Water re-mineralization cartridge dissolves calcium carbonate into the water, which adds essential minerals for good taste and health and neutralizes the pH. This filter generally increases to pH to above 8.5 to 9.5 with prolonged contact right after the reverse osmosis membrane.
- Made in USA
- Typically needs replaced every six months (depending upon water usage)

Can this fit into a standard whole house filter housing?
It fits into any industry standard 2.5 x 10 housing, but this is not for a whole house. For a whole house you would want a 4.5 x 20 and that still might not give you the remineralization you need.
What is the source of the calcium carbonate in this filter? Is it from the USA?
What is the average life of this filter.Typically 6-12 months. It depends on the water usage of you application. Most people get 12 months of usage.
Does this filter replace your 505-CC-10 that I do not see on your filter list?No. The filter in the link is a calcite filter. This is used to raise the pH or mineral content of the water. The 505-CC-10, Is a granular coconut shell carbon filter. Here is a link to the filter that would replace 505-CC-10; https://www.uswatersystems.com/granular-activated-carbon-2-75-x-9-7-8-filter-cartridge-gac-10.html
Does this cartridge also add magnesium to the water or just calcium? Would this be installed after the polishing filter on my RO system?
There could be some magnesium added to the water. It depends on the solubility of the media in the water, which is dependent on the pH and TDS of the water passing through the filter. Typically most applications will see significant rise in Calcium and minimal magnesium change.
