We use the world’s leading brand of water filter cartridge, Alvito

Alvito is the leading brand of water filter cartridge due to its exceptionally high quality and greatest density of any activated carbon in a water filter cartridge which enables it to eliminate astounding levels of drinking water contaminants. It works on the basis of the following effects:

  • A mechanical, strainer-like action: nothing larger than the pores and filter channels can get through the filter’s activated charcoal core, including bacteria, single cell parasites such as Cryptosporidium and Coccidian that come from livestock and faeces, small intestine parasites such as Nematodes and Giardia, and suspended particles including sand, rust particles, asbestos fibres and more.
  • A catalytic effect: the activated carbon core converts chlorine and chlorine compounds such as FCKWs into tasteless, odourless and less reactivate substances that are perfectly safe for drinking water.
  • Absorption: the activated carbon core absorbs inorganic poisons such as heavy metals and organic impurities such as pesticides that are smaller than the filter’s pores. As a result, it removes more than 90.0% of lead, copper, mercury, cadmium and many other heavy metals, alongside 99.9% of bacteria, herbicides, pesticides, fungicides and hormone residues such as oestrogens and medicine residues and those substances such as Hydrogen Sulphide that cause the water to taste and smell foul.

Alvito filter casings are made of PP (Polypropylene) and not of SAN (Styrene acrylonitrile resin).  The filter casing is not transparent, restricting light and inhibiting the growth of algae which can contaminate the drinking water. In scientific tests, Alvito filters achieved the highest impact resistance.  

Finally, most other filter cartridges on the market are not sintered, but extruded, resulting in a matrix of up to 50% binding agent, using granulates from various sources. They are less effective for filtration and absorbance capacity. Comparatively, Alvito filter cartridges feature a very fine filter membrane with porosity of 0.45μ and 0.15μ respectively that removes contaminants while leaving the vital minerals we need for good health intact.

We provide tailored advice about the type of water system you need

Depending on where you live and the quality of your water supply, your drinking water may need to be treated differently. For example, some water supplies may be highly contaminated and need a more rigorous solution to ensure the drinking water is clean and healthy. We can help design a specific solution to suit your drinking water needs, please call us to chat.
