The Alka ULTRA X water system is an exceptional choice for filtering and transforming tap water, whether it comes from rural or city sources. It offers comprehensive purification, effectively removing chlorine, heavy metals, chemicals, micro-plastics, bacteria, and cysts.

One of the standout features of this system is its ability to create alkaline ionised mineral water, providing a refreshing taste akin to mountain spring water. This ensures that every sip is fresh, alive, and delicious.

For those relying on rural water sources, the Ultra filter with a powerful 0.01µm media is particularly noteworthy. This filter effectively removes bacteria, E.coli, giardia, cysts, as well as micro and nanoplastics larger than 10nm, providing clean and safe water.

This system offers customizable tap options you can add separately below, including the recommended Dual Source Tap. This tap allows for a choice between filtered and alkaline water, catering to various preferences. The supplied pH testing drops enable you to monitor and understand the different pH levels of your source water.

Alka Spring Specifications

The ALKA SPRING is a revolutionary antioxidant composite cartridge that ionizes and enhances tap water using Far-Infra-Red (FIR) Energy Beads and Mineral balls. This system raises tap water pH to 8.5-9.5, infuses it with negative ORP antioxidants, and restructures water molecules for better hydration and absorption. It also increases oxygen uptake and retains essential minerals, supporting daily health and vitality.

Distinctive features of the ALKA SPRING include its use of FIR beads, made from natural maifanshi stone and seabed minerals, to emit beneficial infrared energy, and its capacity to enrich water with up to 90 trace minerals like strontium and lithium for improved bodily functions.

The ALKA SPRING is particularly effective with different water sources. Rainwater, often acidic and mineral-deficient, benefits from remineralization, especially when stored in concrete tanks which naturally alkalinize the water. Conversely, Reverse Osmosis water, which is free of contaminants but also stripped of minerals, requires demineralization to enhance pH and antioxidant presence effectively.

Installation may require additional accessories like a FILTER ATTACHMENT KIT or a FILTER TAP, with several types available to meet user needs.

The cartridge also features Maifenite, or "Wisdom Stone", packed with a broad spectrum of minerals and trace elements, renowned in Asia for its health-promoting properties.


Capacity: 3000 liters, 10-15 months for a 2-3 person household.
Hygienic Life: Maximum 2 years.
Installation: After an existing filter and before the filter tap.
Working Pressure: 15 - 65 PSI (pressure reducing valve needed for >70 PSI).
Working Temperature: 5-40˚C.
Contains clay balls and Maifenite (Wisdom stone), packed with a wide range of minerals and trace elements.

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.

A fan

Im a fan of Ionza products too - when I first looked in to treatment system for our tank water Ionza was most forthcoming with all the technical data to back up their claims, and patient enough to stay in touch till I could afford to get the system underway. They always seemed to me to be principle driven and thorough in their methods and objectives, along with pleasant to deal with.

So good!!

Finally got our rural filter setup installed today.... so good!!
The water tastes amazing!
Will be in touch when we need to replace the filters!!

best investment Ive made for my gut health

This is the best investment Ive made for my gut health.
After years living rurally with access to naturally collected rainwater or spring water, I moved to the city and within days was feeling sick again from drinking the town supplied water. It smells bad, tastes worse and gives me acid re-flux and nausea. I was hoping there was a solution and decided to give this a go after a friend recommended it. Ive been really pleased with what I got. Its water I actually want to drink, so I drink more of it. It tastes and smells great and feels good. And of course it saves me a bunch of money on bottled water that I dont want to buy and dont want to support because of all the plastic used. I couldnt be without it now.
