The Alkawater C3 Pre-Filter is the ultimate in water filtration technology. Harmful contaminants such as fluoride, chloramines, lead, arsenic, sulfur, pesticides and nitrates can cause sickness and health problems over years of ingestion. The C3 Pre-Filter is designed to effectively reduce harmful contaminants without removing healthy minerals and other important properties from the water.

Reconfigured to Protect Against 99% of Chloramines Alkawater has noticed a trend towards increased chloramine usage by municipalities. In order to provide our customers with the ultimate protection, we reconfigured our C3 Pre-Filter to protect the user from up to 99% of chloramines. This new Chanson filter configuration has replaced our original C3 Pre-Filter and is now what is exclusively sold to Chanson customers and dealers. 

Product Description

Three Stages of Filtration

Each C3 canister is devoted to addressing a different set of harmful chemicals, heavy metals, fluoride, chlorine,chloramines, and over 100 additional contaminants.

STAGE 1: KDF-55/Super Carbon - Heavy metals, bacteria, sulfur, pesticides, and nitrates.

STAGE 2: Activated Alumina - Fluoride, lead, and arsenic.

STAGE 3: Catalytic Carbon - Chloramines, bad taste and odor

Advantages Over a Reverse Osmosis System

Did you know that a Reverse Osmosis (R/O) system not only completely strips your water of its healthy mineral content, but also wastes approximately five gallons of water to every one gallon you drink? The C3 Pre-Filter uses a direct filtering process to produce healthy drinking water that still contains healthy mineral content, without all the water waste.


Our C3 Pre-Filters last approximately a whole year! There is not a water filter on the market that can compete with our C3 triple-filtration system.
Can Be Used Alone or in Conjunction With A Water Ionizer

The Chanson C3 Pre-Filter can be used on its own or in conjunction with a water ionizer, because unlike R/O systems, it allows valuable minerals through for the ionizer to ionize, and for your body to absorb. No need for a storage tank due to the "on demand" water supply and great flow rate.

One year Warranty

All Chanson filters have full one year warranty on the housings, hoses and fittings. Should your filter housing, hoses, or fittings ever become damaged for any reason just give us a call and we will instruct you on how to mail the damaged parts to us and will mail replacements to you right away. The C3 Pre-Filtration unit comes with two different filter sets, one for city water and one for well water. One of three install setups can be selected upon checkout: - C3 Standard (for use without a water ionizer or for use with an under counter ionizer such as the VS-70 or Angel) - C3-MUC (for use with all brands of countertop water ionizer with the filter installed undersink) - C3-C (for use with all brands of countertop ionizer with the filter installed on the counter)

If you are using a well-water source, you will want to add on a single stage Ultra Filter for added filtration.
