Water filter needs replacing! Your filter can effectively filter 1000 litres of water; this works out to be around every 6 months. A standard household using 5 litres a day? You may notice taste and rate of flow deteriorate gradually over the 6 months of your filter. Usage is a small sign of your water filter needs changing. The change takes place over a period of time you may not notice straight away. Your filter may be able to control taste and odours after it has lost the ability to reduce toxic contaminants. You can’t go by looks either as the charcoal which absorbs the impurities is black. So it is impossible to see if it looks dirty or not. HOW IT WORKS: They are two principal mechanisms by which activated carbon remove contaminants from water. ABSORPTION: Activated carbon is perhaps the most powerful absorbent known to man. 500g of carbon contains a surface area of roughly 500m2 and can absorb literally thousands of different chemicals. CATALYTIC REDUCTION: a process involving the attraction of negatively charging condiment ions to the positively charged activated carbon. Organic compounds are removed by absorption and residual disinfectants such as chlorine and chloramines are removed by catalytic reduction. Our filters are made of coconut shell charcoal, and have a particle size of 0.5 microns. A micron is equivalent to a 100th millimetre in size. 10 microns is equivalent to a grain of sand. Your filter will remove chlorine, Trihalomethane (THM”s), Volatile organic compounds, benzene, bacteria, pesticides, herbicides, radon, solvents, and hundreds of manmade chemicals found in tap water as well as bad taste & odours. The double layer cloth filter removes organic sediments, particular material before it enters the filter, rust, mud, sand, slime etc.
