Drinking Water Filters and Cartridges

All the filter systems above can have different types or combinations of filter mediums. Your choice depends on what you want to filter out.

Filtration/Adsorption Filtration: involves using a substance, typically carbon, to make contaminants adhere to the many pores (like pumice) within the carbon source, also called adsorption. The source of carbon can be coconut, charcoal, ceramic, etc. This helps remove odour, taste and particles in the water.

Softeners: If you have a hard water source, you will notice a build up in kettles, bathtubs and sinks. These are normally a result of large amounts of minerals in your water. A softener medium will reduce the amount of minerals.

UV Treatment: This uses ultraviolet light to disinfect water, however it only works on relatively clear water, otherwise the light doesn’t penetrate sufficiently.

Reverse-Osmosis: This passes water under high pressure through a thin membrane. Most contaminants are physically blocked and washed away. It uses a lot of energy and water; up to 85% of the water can be wasted in the process. However, it does remove a wide range of contaminants.

Distillation: This is also energy-intensive. It boils the water, collecting the condensing water to remove many contaminants, though not all.
