Omnipure Filter Company developed the world’s first disposable inline water filter in 1969 and brought a production model market in 1970. This filter, the CL-Series, was designed specifically to reduce compounds that detracted from the aesthetics of drinking water- namely color, odor, and taste. The filter found its first widespread application in commercial ice making machines. It soon found regular usage as an accessory attached to refrigerators, water coolers, coffee machines, and as a component in other filtration systems such as Reverse Osmosis Systems and other multi-level filtration processes.
From the beginning, founder William Reid based filter design on sound engineering principles. After building and testing his initial designs, Mr. Reid perfected the manufacturing techniques that allowed Omnipure to reproduce their filter with precision. Sound engineering combined with good technique yield ed quality product. With that process up and running, Omnipure began to build a reputation for manufacturing the world’s best disposable inline water filter.
