The Gravity Water Filter is a portable unit and needs no plumbing in. It is an ideal way to benefit from filtered water “on tap” especially if you are travelling or living in rented accommodation. It sits on the counter top providing plenty of water for each day and can be refilled at night for the next day’s supply.
The upper container is filled manually with water which then filters down to the lower container passing through the filter candles. This can then be accessed via the tap at the bottom of the unit. The lower tank has a capacity of 8 litres. It takes one hour for 1 litre to pass through the filters. Please allow longer when using for the first time.
The Gravity Water Filter comes with a choice of either standard or heavy metal filters.
With Standard Filters
The Gravity Water Filter Standard will remove in excess of 97% of free chlorine, 99.999% of pathogenic organisms such as bacteria: E-coli, cholera, typhoid and cysts: cryptosporidium and giardia. The Super SterasylTM filters will also reduce chemicals - see Contaminant Removal tab.
The capabilities of Super Sterasy filter candles used in the Gravity Water Filter are as follows:
Chlorine - >97%
Sediment, rust and particles - >99.7%
Bacteria - >99.99%
(E. Coli, Vibrio Cholerae (cholera), Shigelia, Salmonella Typhi ((Typhoid), Klebsiella Terrigena)
(Cryptosporidium, Giardia) - >99.99%
Trace organic removal - The Super Sterasyl will reduce the following chemicals but the filter candles have not been tested by the NSF for removal of these chemicals so % figures are not given.
Polyaromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH's)
Oestrogen and synthetic oestrogen
This filter has all the specifications of the Super Sterasyl filter above with added filtration to remove heavy metals. It will remove all heavy metals but with a higher specification for lead. This means that lead takes priority and if there is only a small amount of lead it will also remove other heavy metals.
"We are very pleased with the filter. We have been using a jug filter- but the water still tasted very harsh, and as a result I purchased bottled water for my son, who didn’t like the taste. The water from our new filter tastes pure and sweet, and my son loves it."
Joyce Vernon- Roberts
Replacing the filters
The filters in the Gravity Water Filter will need replacing every six months for four people in the house and every nine months for two people.
