Water Filters Explained

Water Filtration Systems

There are many different water filters available dependent on the flow rate and water use requirements. For water coolers we favour inline one piece moulded units.

These water filters contain two filtration media, a patented KDF 55-D material followed by high grade carbon. The KDF55-D has been shown to kill algae and fungi, reduce bacterial and remove or greatly reduce lead, mercury, aluminium, arsenic and chlorine.

With the final clean done by active carbon, these filters have been shown to remove or greatly reduce such contaminants as:

  • Chromium III (98%)
  • Cadmium (80%)
  • Lead (85%)
  • Nitrate (75%)
  • Chlorine (99%)
  • Sulphur (99%)

This process also removes many agricultural chemicals and contaminants.

These water filters are designed to be used with microbiologically safe water.

If your water does not meet this standard some further pretreatment such as UV will be necessary. Filters should be changed every 12 to 18 months dependent on usage. The same water filters are used for both bottled water coolers and plumbed in water cooler units.
