What does this filter remove?
Stage 1 – Melt Blown Sediment Filter
- Removes suspended (floating) particles including
- Sand or small stones
Stage 2 – GAC Filter
- Removes chemicals or bad tastes or odours in the water including
- Volatile Organic Compounds and other chemicals
Stage 3 – Carbon Block Filter
- Removes any residual suspended particles, chemicals or bad tastes or odours that the first 2 filters have missed
Stage 4 – Ultra Filter Membrane
- Removes very small suspended particles in the water including:
- Silt or clay
Stage 5 – Activated Carbon Polishing Filter
- An extra “backup” carbon filter cartridge that removes any residual tastes and odours in the water that may have somehow not been removed by the previous 4 stages
What does this filter not remove?
Dissolved minerals (so if you have brackish water, this will not improve the taste as the unpleasant taste is caused by dissolved salts)
- Dissolved minerals can only be removed through a more expensive and complicated reverse-osmosis process
Hardness (so if you have hard water, this filter will not reduce the hardness)
- Hardness can only be removed by reverse osmosis (although vastly reduces the lifespan of the reverse osmosis membrane) or by using a softening resin cartridge
- No Waste Water
- Operates with low pressure (1 bar and up)
- Best Value vs Performance Filter- No Power Required- Low maintenance Costs
The system consists of a sediment, granular carbon and carbon block filter as pre – treatment and then an Ultra – Filtration membrane which filters down to 0.2 microns to remove bacteria and parasites.
The water then flows through an inline carbon polishing filter before flowing to your tap.
The SUPERPURE 5 – stage UF offers excellent filtration and higher flow than a similar – sized Reverse – Osmosis unit, this means that it does not need an additional storage tank and is more compact.
The filter also uses industry – standard 10 inch slimline 10 x 2.5 replacement filters that most filter and hardware stores stock.
