The Ultra-Rural filter system is designed specifically for tank water or similar rural water sources. It serves as a non-electric alternative to UV systems and effectively addresses water issues right at the point of usage in the kitchen.

This 2-Filter system utilizes the Ultra X technology to remove bacteria and Viruses, including things like E. coli, giardia, cysts, as well as microplastics and nanoplastics larger than 10nm (nanometers) using a powerful 0.01 micron filter media. With this system, you can enjoy clean and safe water, providing peace of mind.

The filter system includes a sediment filter and an Ultra filter, as well as all necessary parts such as the T-line diverter valve, pressure reducing valve, connectors, 1/4" tubing, and wall brackets.

Please note: This system does not include the Tap and this you can select and add to your cart separately if required

Users have reported that their water tastes significantly better and is safe to drink after using this filter system.

Attainable Benefits

Protection Against Pathogens - The system effectively removes harmful microorganisms like Giardia, Cryptosporidium, and E. coli, significantly reducing the risk of waterborne diseases and enhancing gastrointestinal health.

Microplastic and Nanoplastic Removal - With a 0.01µm filter mesh, the system is specifically designed to filter out tiny particles of microplastics and nanoplastics from your water, protecting your body from potential toxic exposures.

Versatile Source Compatibility - Ensures clean and safe drinking water from various sources including city tap, tank, bore water, aquifers, reservoirs, creeks, or springs. This versatility is crucial for maintaining health regardless of water origin.

Sediment Filter Prevents Filter Clogging - Acts as an essential pre-filter, especially useful in rural and city water supplies, to protect further filtration layers from clogging with sediment, thereby extending the lifespan of your system and ensuring consistent performance.

Removes Common Contaminants - The system is adept at eliminating rust, dirt, scale, sediment, and sand, which not only improves the taste and clarity of your water but also safeguards against digestive and other health issues related to ingesting these particulates.

Promotes Overall Health - By consistently providing cleaner, healthier water, the filter system supports your overall well-being, ensuring that your daily water intake is free from unwanted impurities.

Reduced Impurities

Filtering Micro-plastics: Reducing the risk of endocrine disruption, gastrointestinal issues, and ongoing research into possible carcinogenic effects.
Filtering Bacteria and Cysts: Reducing the risk of gastrointestinal illnesses, severe infections, and compromise the immune system.

Product Specifications
  • The filter replacements in this system range between 10 -18 months
  • Smallest Micron rating of 0.01
  • Working Pressure: 20 - 60 PSI (pressure reducing valve needed for >70 PSI). Even if the water pressure is on the lower end (15-20 PSI), the system will still produce pure, clean, safe, and healthy drinking water, although the flow may be slower. On the higher end of the pressure range, you can expect a good flow rate. (a pressure reducing valve is required for higher water pressures).
  • Working Temperature: 5-40˚C.
  • Flow Rate: 1-1.8 liters/min for optimal performance.
  • pH range: 5-9
Ultra Filter Specifications

The Ultra Filter stands out as a unique filtration solution with its exceptional capacity to effectively remove challenging microorganisms and contaminants. 

When it comes to eliminating harmful bacteria, including Giardia, Cryptosporidium, E. coli, and more, the Ultra Filter's 0.01µ Micron filter media is specifically designed for this purpose. It ensures the removal of various waterborne microorganisms and contaminants commonly found in tank water systems, which may include concentrations of E. coli, bacteria, and others.

Furthermore, the Ultra Filter proves to be an excellent choice for addressing the issue of Microplastics and Nanoplastics. With its 0.01µm filter mesh media, it effectively filters out these particles. Given the growing awareness of micro and nano-plastics present in water sources, including town supply, tank or rainwater, the Ultra Filter's capability to remove them is crucial. Ongoing research explores the potential long-term health consequences associated with these contaminants.

Whether you rely on city tap water, tank water, bore water, aquifers, reservoirs, creeks, or springs, the Ultra Filter remains relevant and valuable for ensuring cleaner and safer water supplies.

Pre-filter recommended: approx. 5-20µ (micron) mesh size.
Filter Lifespan: 18 months, dependent on regular backflushing.
Working Pressure: 15 - 50 PSI (pressure reducing valve required for higher pressures).
Includes a backflush facility with a 3rd port for maintenance.
