Why You Might Need A Pre-Filter: Most customers use our filters without the need for a pre-filter. However please note that our filters are carbon block design which means they are more tightly packed with filtration media. The practically all of the previous generation of filters such as the IEC-8000, the MW-7000C, or the OS-1000 or the filters made by Enagic are granulated activated carbon (GAC) with much larger pores which allows more contaminants to get trough the filter.
