With a stabilized salt rejection rate of 99 percent at 75 GPD and 98 percent at 100 gallons per day, in standard sizes (1812 configuration), DOW FILMTEC BW-60-1812-75 and TW30-1812-100HR home drinking water elements offer premium water - faster. The new 75 GPD membrane uses new Dow membrane chemistries which have been customized to maximize element performance. The 75 and 100 GPD elements offer a balance of flow and high rejection, producing more water with 20 percent higher flow rates at standard test conditions.
