Stage One – Three

Stage One: Anti-Scale Polyphosphate unit reduces limescale formation. Improve efficiency and prolong the life of kettles, irons, coffee makers, refrigerator icemakers, etc. Increase Water Filter efficiency, due to less limescale build-up.

Stage Two: PP Sediment Filter is rated by a “micron” number. Our system uses a nominal 5-micron filter which can trap 85% of particles of 5 microns and larger. Remove particles such as sand grains, organic matter, rust flakes, clay particles or other small particles in the water supply. A Sediment Filter does not make water taste or smell better, it removes sediment only.


Stage Three: Granular Activated Carbon Filter is a form of charcoal that has been treated by high temperatures and steam in the absence of oxygen. This process produces small granules that are extremely porous. Just 4 grams, in absorption terms, is the equivalent of an area the size of a football field. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, an Activated Carbon Filter is the only filter recommended to remove 32 EPA identified organic contaminants, 14 pesticides,12 herbicides and THMs (Trihalomethanes).

Stage Four: Block Carbon Filter, very fine pulverized carbon is compressed and fused together with a bonding material. The intricate maze developed within the block ensures contact with organic impurities. Unlike Activated Granular Carbon Filter (GAC), where water flows around the carbon particles, Block Carbon filter force water to penetrate through it. This allows for more complete contact with and subsequent adsorption of Chlorine, THM, plus Toxic Metals, Nitrates, Parasites, Chemicals, Pesticides & Herbicides. 

Stage FiveUltra-Filtration Membrane is a type of filtration in which hydrostatic pressure forces water against a semipermeable membrane, which is a thin layer of material capable of separating substances. Removes bacteria, protozoa, endotoxins, viruses and potential pathogens from water. Is not fundamentally different from reverse osmosis, microfiltration or Nanofiltration. The primary advantage of the Ultra Filtration membrane process is the fact that there is no wastewater.

Stage SixT33 Post Carbon Filter

The Final Stage is a Post Carbon filter, which acts as a finishing filter, providing you with great tasting Purified Water.

Stage Seven: Alkaline Mineral Filter (OPTIONAL)
Our Alkaline Filter contains a variety of trace elements, such as selenium, zinc, molybdenum and calcium, among others.

Zinc and selenium are two trace elements that are required for human health. Each of these minerals plays an important role in the body and both have antioxidant properties.

Molybdenum is a micronutrient essential for life, and it works in the body to break down proteins and other substances.
