Our filter enables enable households to filter their well, tap or rain water without the need to boil or use electricity, hence reducing human diseases, household costs and green house gas emissions. Dirty water flows from the upper container through our filter to the lower, clean water container from where safe drinking water can be tapped. The filters are made of ceramic with pores of 0.4 micron, and removes micro-organisms: bacteria, cysts, parasites, fungi, sand, clay and other particles greater than 0.4 micron. The ceramic is filled with activated carbon which reduces the content of harmful chemicals such as pesticides and chlorine. It improves the taste and reduces smell. The ceramic is impregnated with silver, which kills micro-organisms that are trapped at the surface of the ceramic. It also kills bacteria and fungi and helps to keep the stored water clean. The filter candle can filter 7000 litres (translates to 1-2 years) of water before it needs to be changed. The filter candle is easy to install, easy to clean and easy to replace.
