“Outside of a dog, a good countertop water filter is man's best friend. Inside of a dog,
it's too dark to drink water.”

—Groucho Marx.

We pay shipping on all Model 77 systems.

Choosing a Model 77

The easy way: Choose the standard model. This is the most popular format and it's the standard white vessel, with a gooseneck spout and the MatriKX CTO+ carbon block cartridge. It's the first unit pictured in the table below. It's our unchallenged best seller, for a reason. It's an attractive, superb performer in all situations—city water or well water.

When you order, by phone or our online shopping cart, you'll need to choose (a) a housing style, (b) a spout style, & (c) a filter cartridge.

(a) The housings are described & pictured in the ordering table below.

(b) Here are the choices in Stainless Steel Spout Styles:

1. Standard Gooseneck Spout (left)

2. Long-Reach Spout (right)

(c) Finally, choose a filter cartridge. (Any standard 9.75" X 2.5" filter cartridge—the most common size made—will fit vessel Styles 1-4, & any “Doulton candle” style cartridge will fit vessel Style 5. We recommend especially the cartridges listed below, but you can also choose other selections from our “Cartridge Menu.”

When you view the Cartridge Menu (available at the end of this document or go here), remember that all 9.75" X 2.5" cartridges will fit standard Model 77, and all “Candle Style” or slimline cartridges fit Model 77s.

White Low-Ribbed : The King
Part # : CF001

This is our most popular style.

Perennial Best Seller, Classic White Low-Ribbed Vessel. We call this model “The King.” The standard cartridge is the MatriKX CTO+, but you can get it with others at no extra costs. This is a tough vessel that can be converted to undersink use if desired.

Accepts Full-Sized 9.75" X 2.5" Cartridges.

CF001 Model 77 : The King $77.00 Add to Cart

Model 77 : Clear
Part # : CF003

It takes its color from the cartridge installed. In the picture the cartridge is the standard MatriKX CTO+ carbon block. The advantage of clear housings is that they let you see what the exterior of the cartridge has collected; this is also their disadvantage. The crisp, white CTO+ cartridge in the picture can start looking pretty ugly after a few months of exposure to tap water.

Accepts Full-Sized 9.75" X 2.5" Cartridges.

CF003 Model 77 : Clear $77.00 Add to Cart

White Smooth—The Continental Style
Part # : CF002

This is a lighter weight housing than the heavy ribbed King, above. We don't recommend it if you plan to convert it later to undersink use. For countertop use, though, it's great. It comes apart easily for cartridge changes.

Accepts Full-Sized 9.75" X 2.5" Cartridges.

CF002 Model 77 : The Continental $77.00 Add to Cart

Model 77s : Slimline, or “Candle-Style”
Part # : CF008

Tall, elegant and easy to maintain. Accepts Doulton and other “candle-style” cartridges. The standard cartridge is the Slimline MAXPB extruded carbon block with lead removal, and any of the other Doulton cartridges will fit.

Accepts Candle-Style Cartridges.

CF008 Model 77 : Slimline $77.00 Add to Cart

Slimline / Candle-Style Cartridge Menu

MAXPB is the standard cartridge for Model 77s.

Slimine MAXPB (formerly KX-Pb1)

Slimline MAXPB nominal 0.5 micron carbon block. Built-in lead and cyst-removal capabilities. Recommended change time: 9 months to one year. More info here.

FC794 $29.00 Add to Cart

Doulton Super-Sterasyl

Doulton C-DSS ceramic candle that removes bacteria and cysts, with a small carbon core built-in to improve taste and odor. See our gravity filter section for full advantages of the ceramic cartridge. Ceramics protect against cysts and bacteria, but the carbon cores are less effective than the two filters above for chlorine and chemical reduction. More info here.

FC701 $42.00 Add to Cart

Doulton UltraCarb

Doulton C-DU ceramic candle that removes bacteria and cysts, with a carbon block core capable of lead reduction, taste/odor improvement, and high volatile organic chemical removal. More info here.

FC702 $48.00 Add to Cart

Standard Model 77 Cartridge Menu

Note: Model 77 comes equipped with a filter cartridge, so you won't need a replacement for a year.

The price of the unit is $77, regardless of the cartridge chosen. Prices given in the list below indicate cost of replacement cartridges. If you want to order an extra cartridge with the unit, it will add to the price of the unit. Our most popular cartridge is the MatriKX CTO+. We use it in Model 77, undersink filters, & reverse osmosis units.

The CTO+ is our standard cartridge for all full-sized Model 77 units. It's what you'll get if you don't specify a cartridge.

MatriKX CTO+

(Formerly KX-1) Great all around chlorine and chemical filter. This carbon block has exceptional chlorine & chemical reduction capacity, & it produces great-tasting water. (The manufacturer's name for the cartridge is “The Chlorine Guzzler.”) We recommend that you change it annually. More info here.

FC001 $21.00 Add to Cart

MatriKX Pb1

The Pb1 has slightly less capacity than the two cartridges above for chemicals and chlorine, but it removes lead and cysts (crypto and giardia). Change annually. More info here.

FC004 $29.00 Add to Cart

Convert your Model 77

(or any countertop filter) to an undersink unit. We have an inexpensive kit that makes it easy.
