Why is Follett using Agion antimicrobial technology?

Agion is effective against a wide range of destructive bacteria and fungi. It is a naturally occurring, silver-based antimicrobial technology that utilizes no harsh synthetic chemicals. Agion is included in the filter media and works continuously over the life of the filter cartridge to extend its life by preventing biofouling and the growth of microbes on the surface of the filter media.

Agion has Broad Regulatory Approvals including EPA, FDA, NSF, USDA, European BPD and FSA.

Do I really need a Follett filter?

Here are three reasons why it’s important to purchase a Follett filter:

Reason #1:
Follett filter cartridges have NSF approval, while most generic brands do not. Follett invests in having its filters certified by NSF so you can have confidence in the filter performance and assurance of safety claims. It’s important to know that if your replacement cartridges do not have NSF approval, your entire filtration system no longer meets NSF standards.

NSF International, a not-for-profit, non-governmental organization, is the world leader in standards development, product certification, and risk-management for public health and safety. Follett filters are approved for Standard 42 (Aesthetic effects) and Standard 53 (Health effects).

Reason #2:

Follett filters are manufactured with care using high grade carbons, media and materials.

Reason #3:
Follett filter cartridges now include Agion® antimicrobial product protection for additional protection against bacteria, mold and fungus. Agion’s antimicrobial technology provides built-in protection by naturally and continuously resisting the growth of damaging microbes.

Should I Buy the Follett CT or the Follett CI Model?

The Follett 50CT400A and  the Follett 25CT400A are being phased out later this year in favor of the Follett 50CI400A and the Follett 25CI400A. Here is a comparison of the CT vs. CI:

  • The Follett CI model comes in one piece with the icemaker pre-installed compared, to the Follett CT which comes in 2 boxes and requires on-site installation of the ice maker.
  • The ice maker in the Follett CI model is removable from behind the splash panel at counter height instead of above the bin with the Follett CT models, making it easier to access for cleaning and sanitizing the icemaker.
  • Because the icemaker in the Follett CI models is located behind the splash panel, it is also easier to access the ice storage bin to sanitize the ice storage bin when necessary.  To effectively clean the ice storage bin with the Follett CT units, you need to take off the icemaker to get good access to the bin.  This process of removing and reinstalling the icemaker adds additional time and effort to cleaning and sanitizing.
  • The width of Follett CI units is the same 21” as the Follett CT models; however, the Follett CI units require 3” clearance on each side.  Even with the required clearance, the Follett CI has the smallest footprint in the industry for its capacity.
