Description Manuals Specification Reviews Associated Replacement Filters

This system is designed to balance out the minerals in your water, its great as a stand alone system for various water sources and can help as pre-filtration for benchtop water ionizers when your water source requires a little extra help.

This system includes two cartridges:

  1. Effective purification with the Active Pure Xtra - Carbon and KDF filter cartridge as pre-filter with a 1-year capacity.

  2. Remineralization with the Bio Mineral Cartridge, which is packed with approximately 95 natural minerals and trace elements.

1) Active Pure Xtra - Carbon and KDF - 1 Year. 

The High-Tec Filter from Pentair is a two-stage filter that contains two types of purification media: active carbon and KDF. The first stage uses KDF oxidation/reduction media, which is versatile and removes trace metals like aluminium and lead, chlorine, and other contaminants. This stage helps to prolong the life of the second granular carbon stage. The filter is effective in removing organics, chemicals, tastes, and odours and improving the taste of water. The filter requires a 10" slimline housing for installation and has a capacity of 4-8,000 Litres or 10-15 months, depending on the source water. The hygienic life is 2 years. The KDF media is bacterio-static, meaning that it inhibits the growth of bacteria within the filter bed. The filter has a filter mesh size of 5 µ micron and a pH range of 5-9. It can handle a pressure rating of 60 PSI and has a flow rate of up to 2 Litre/ minute.

2) Bio Mineral Cartridge 

To add minerals to your water, consider using the Bio Mineraliser, which is a specially formulated cartridge that is excellent for introducing approximately 95 natural minerals and trace elements to rainwater, soft water, and Reverse Osmosis systems that are deficient in minerals. The Bio Mineraliser contains clay balls and Maifenite, also known as the "wisdom stone" in China and the "health stone" in other parts of Asia, and is weathered granite and diorite that is comprised of plagioclase, black mica, quartz, hornblende, chlorite, and other minerals. Maifenite is non-toxic and harmless, and has a certain biological activity of compound mineral or medicinal rocks. It is also used to mineralize drinking water and can contain a wide range of minerals, including rare earth elements. Consuming such enhanced water on a long-term basis can aid in the absorption of minerals and nutrients, assist in eliminating toxic substances, and improve metabolism

 

Interesting Info: 

Rainwater is generally lacking in minerals and is acidic with a pH of approximately 5.9, unless stored in a concrete tank, in which case the pH would be higher. It is important to note that rainwater as a regular drinking source leaches the body of minerals, so drinking it long term without remineralization is not recommended. If the rainwater is stored in a plastic tank, the water remains acidic at pH 5.9 and lacks minerals. For ionization to work, it is necessary to introduce minerals to rainwater, especially if aiming to create higher pH levels of 9.5 - 10.

Concrete walls of a tank offer the rainwater alkalizing minerals, lifting the pH into alkaline, and providing calcium and magnesium minerals for ionization. However, it is recommended to install a remineralizer even for a concrete tank, as the range of minerals available is very limited.

Reverse osmosis water is stripped of minerals, which is an unfortunate outcome, although it is also free from contaminants. The pH of reverse osmosis water is acidic at approximately 5.9, so it is necessary to remineralize it before ionization. To remineralize water, there are various methods available, such as adding mineral drops or using a bio-mineral cartridge. It is important to note that while rainwater is generally safe to drink, not all rainwater is safe to drink, and proper storage and filtration methods should be used
