Description Technical Specs FAQS
How it works:

  1. 25 litres of untreated water is poured into the top of the unit, also called the dirty water container.
  2. The pre-filter removes coarse particles larger than 80 microns.
  3. The ultrafiltration hollow-fibre membrane cartridge, located inside the main dark blue body of the filter, then stops all turbidity particles and pathogens larger than 20 nanometres (including all bacteria, viruses and protozoan cysts). Particles and microbes larger than 20 nanometres stay on the dirty side of the membrane and clean/purified water passes through the membrane.
  4. Purified water can be collected from any of the four taps.
  5. The backwashing handle allows semi-automatic backwashing; when it is pulled down and released, pathogens and dust particles on the dirty side of the membrane are lifted by backpressure and then flushed out into the red backwash container.
NOTE: Water from the red container should never be consumed.
