How Does a Ceramic Water Filter work?
The Awesome Water Ceramic Dome Filter used by Awesome water filters consists of ceramic material that has a hollow core.
Awesom Ceramic Dome Filter – The Process
Ceramic water filter work by allowing water to flow through the millions of tiny pores on the casing of the ceramic cartridge. These pores, a half micron in size, trap impurities as the water passes through them. The inside of the filter is a convoluted maze of sharp angles designed to further catch any particles that have penetrated the exterior surface. Owing to the minute size of the pores and complexity of the filter, the water percolation through a ceramic filter is very fine particulate filtration, eliminating a host of contaminants like bacteria and sediment.
Our Awesome Ceramic Dome Filter has very small pores. Because of the particles greater than 0.5 microns will not pass through the ceramic material. This means that all bacteria, parasites, spores of fungi and other micro-organisms are filtered out of your water.
Please Note: The Awesome Ceramic Dome Filter has a slower filtration process than our BPA Free Plastic Dome. As it removes more impurities than our BPA Free Plastic Dome and can take up to 24 hours for the water to pass from the top bowl to the bottom bowl. If you require faster water filtration, please use our BPA Free Plastic Dome with the black and white felt pads which only take approximately one hour to pass from top to bottom. We always recommend that any of our customers who are using rain water, tank water or bore water to use the Ceramic Dome Filter.
Preparation before use:
- Soak it in clean water for at least 10 minutes.
- Rinse with running water especially inside.
- Fix rubber ring and assemble with the upper tank.
- Fix the nut and put the upper tank back together and you can enjoy your filtered pure alkaline drinking water!
What is the best way to Clean?
Cleaning instructions: The ideal way to clean is by rubbing with a soft sponge or non-abrasive pad with no detergent. By doing this it will prolong the water filter life and is not uncommon to last 12 months.*
*It’s recommended to replace it every 6 months to maximise the effectiveness.
