Activated charcoal/carbon is great at trapping other carbon-based impurities, such as chlorine. It reduces chlorine, particles and improves the taste and odor of water. The beneficial minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium that are dissolved in the water, stays in the water. It reduces asbestos fibers that may come from the degradation or breakdown of human-made products such as pipes. Also works against certain bacteria.
Our product is silver impregnated and will not permit bacteria to grow by halting the cellular process called mitosis. The silver provides a hostile environment for all microbiological organisms and will not support their growth inside the filter. The ceramic elements may be cleaned up to a 100 times or more with a soft brush, damp cloth or a cleansing pad/sponge.
You can use water from floods, rain, rivers, tap, or streams. Once filter is put into use, the carbon will last 6-8 months and the ceramic portion will last up to 1000 gallons.
Filters are compatible with Gravi-Stil Systems, H2O 1.5, 2.0, and 3.0 Water Purification Systems, Berkey, Doulton, Royal.
