MICRON FILTER LEVEL

This is a measurement of how small a particle must be to get through the filter and into your glass. The human eye cannot see anything smaller than 40 microns in size, bacteria can range from 0.2/2 x 1/10 microns.

CONTAINS ACTIVATED CARBON

Carbon is used to capture pollutants in the filter process, removing Chlorine, Sediment, Organic compounds and unwanted taste and odour from the water. Activated Carbon is a form of Carbon treated to have a huge surface area for its volume.

HEAVY METAL REDUCTION MEIDA

Reduces the concentration of metals such as lead.

BACTERIA REMOVAL

Water is the ideal place for many dangerous bacteria such as e-coli, salmonella, and cholera to multiply. Our filters can remove harmful bacteria for your water.

SILVER IMPREGNANTED TO REMOVE BACTERIA

Silver has natural anti-bacterial properties and can be incorporated into the structure of the filter to avoid bacteria reproducing. 


VIRUS REMOVAL

Viruses are organisms even smaller than bacteria. They can be transmitted through contaminated water but require a living host to survive. This figure indicates whether the filter can remove viruses.

FREE CHLORINE REMOVAL

Chlorine is added to water as a disinfectant but adds an unpleasant taste. This figure indicates how much chlorine is removed.
