Optional Ceramic Dome Filtration

Adding this filtration option provide more efficient filtration especially when using rainwater, bore water, or when the water source has a high turbidity level. The ceramic filter replaces the standard plastic dome that holds the felt pads in the top part of your bottle set.

Ceramic water filters work by allowing water to flow through a network of millions of tiny pores on the casing of the ceramic cartridge. These pores, varying from 2 microns to half microns in size, trap impurities as the water passes through them. The inside of the filter is a convoluted maze of sharp angles designed to further catch any particles that have penetrated the exterior surface. Owing to the minute size of the pores and the complexity of the filter, the water percolation through a ceramic filter is very fine particulate filtration, eliminating a host of contaminants like bacteria, sediment, and turbidity.

This system of filtration imitates part of the Earth’s natural water purification process. Just as water from aquifers seeps through layers of rock in the earth’s surface as it makes its way to streams, the water in a ceramic filter permeates natural media to rid itself of impurities.

Ceramic Filters will remove bacteria, sediment, and turbidity. Sediment refers to physical impurities in the water like, dirt, dust, rust, sand, and other solid debris. Turbidity refers to the cloudiness in water caused by suspended particles.  This turns your water unappetizing shades of yellow and brown. Ceramic filters are adept at removing the murky coloration and restoring the water to a crystal clear state.

Ceramic filters are also quite effective at removing bacteria from water. Few bacteria are smaller than two microns in size. Unable to pass through the pores, the bacteria are filtered out as the water seeps through the ceramic filter. Ceramic filters rid water of about 99% of pathogenic bacteria, including E-coli, shigella, and salmonella. Microbial cysts like Giardia and Cryptosporidium are also too large to pass through the filters and are easily removed by the ceramic shell.

The filter needs to be replaced every 6 months

This filter combines mechanical filtration and physical absorption processes to reduce a wide variety of drinking water contaminants of both aesthetic and health concerns. The pore structure of the ceramic allows efficient contact time to improve the taste and odour of the water as well as reducing chlorine, chloramine, volatile organic compounds, heavy metals, such as lead, mercury and arsenic, but most importantly fluoride.

This filter also includes an inner filtration medium of silver-impregnated activated carbon, which have the added benefit of removing Chlorine & Volatile organic compounds (VOC’s)

Chlorine: Chlorine is present in most city water as it is used in the municipal purification process. Chlorine leaves water with a bitter and chemical taste and unpleasant smell. The activated carbon reduces both chlorine and chloramines in water, restoring your water’s fresh flavor.

VOCs: Volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, include a wide array of chemical contaminants that make their way into water by way of everything from agricultural runoff to consumer products like paints and pesticides. These compounds are all carbon-based, and ceramic filters with carbon cores will greatly reduce the levels of VOCs in your water.


The results as displayed below, have been tested in accordance with NSF protocols

The filter needs to be replaced every 12 months
