3M™ Aqua-Pure™ Full Flow Water Filter System 3MFF100.

  • 3M Aqua-Pure Full Flow Water Filtration System

    The one that gets it done.

    When it comes to reducing lead from drinking water, the Aqua-Pure Full Flow Water Filter System 3MFF100 is one of the best in the business. It’s scientifically-designed to reduce up to 99% of lead that may be in your water, and features twice the capacity as major competitors — meaning 50% fewer changeouts. Contaminants like lead, sediment, chlorine taste and odor, parasitic protozoan cysts and select VOCs are filtered without reducing the flow rate from your faucet.


    It’s easy to maintain your filtration system with Aqua-Pure Water Filtration Cartridge 3MFF101 cartridges. They feature a sanitary quick-change design that makes them super easy to replace. Cartridges should be replaced every 12 months or sooner. If the rated capacity of 6,000 gallons is reached or there’s a noticeable reduction in flow rate or change in odor or taste, replace the filter promptly.

Its three-stage filtration system with carbon block technology provides filtration you can count on to help reduce contaminants that may be in your school’s water. Each product comes with a performance data sheet that shows the list of contaminants that the filter has been certified by NSF to reduce.
