4 Filtration mediums works in conjunction to remove organic and chemical impurties from the water; including chlorine, Thrihalomethanes, VOC (Volatile organic Compounds), Heavy metals, as well as bacteria like Ecoli, Giardia & Chriptosporidium.
Bio Far Infra Red balls & Coralite sand adds back much needed trace element to the water: Magnesium, Potasium, Iron, Zinc & Iodene.
There are two principal mechanisms by which activated carbon removes contaminants from water:
Adsorption - activated carbon is perhaps the most powerful absorbent known to man; 500g of carbon contains a surface area of roughly 500m² and can adsorb literally thousands of different chemicals.
Catalytic reduction - a process involving the attraction of negatively-charged contaminant ions to the positively-charged activated carbon.
2 x layer Felt pads in dome—removes rust, sediment and solid particles of 5 Microns and larger
KDF—is a high purity alloy of both copper & zinc especially effective for removing traces of heavy metals like iron, lead, nickel, chromium, cadmium, calcium, aluminium, mercury, arsenic and organic compounds. It is known to kill algae and fungi, control bacteria growth as well as remove chlorine, pesticides and hydrogen sulphide. It also softens the water by changing the form of calcium salts which reduces scale in pipes and appliances. As it also introduces ozone to the water, it creates a hostile and desolate environment for algae, bacteria , and other micro organisms to grow in.
Coconut Activated Carbon - filters up to 5 microns in particle size. 1micron = 1000th of a millimetre in size. It removes Chlorine, Trihalomethanes (a result of chlorination) organic sediment, herbicides and pesticides, reduces heavy metals and improves taste and smell
Bio Ceramic Infra Red Balls - add trace elements of calcium, magnesium, zinc, iodine, iron, potassium and adjust the water to an optimum mild alkaline level and energize the water molecules
Corallite Sand - increases the calcium level and regulates PH levels to increase alkalinity of the water
Activated Carbon - extra level of activated carbon
Bio Ceramic Infra Red Balls—extra level of mineral balls.
Ceramic Plate (0.5 micron)- removes bacteria & microbiolic cysts e.g. E-coli & Giardia
