How it Works
Step 1 : Fine Particle Filter.
This removes larger particles including sediment and rust, providing cleaner, clearer water.Step 2 : Activated Carbon.
The activated carbon comes from coconuts and is refined to our own exacting specifications. It is used to absorb chlorine, which has a very distinctive taste and smell. Chlorine is often added to water as a distinctive. Filtering water reduces chlorine by up to 80%. The activated carbon is also used to filter out organic impurities from water such as humic acids (decomposed organic products such as leaf rot), herbicides and pesticides. As these may be odorless and tasteless, we are not even aware that we are drinking them.Step 3 : Special Ion Exchange Resin.
This formulation is unique to Aqua Optima and reduces the amount of trace metals such as lead, copper and aluminum often found in water. Lead and copper can be found in domestic water pipes and the gradual build-up in our bodies is detrimental to our long-term health. The ion exchange resin also reduces calcium carbonate by up to 70%. Calcium carbonate is responsible for the build-up of limescale in our kettle. By using filtered water limescale build-up is reduced – thus helping prolong the life of our kettles. The ion exchange resin is responsible for removing the oily film that is so unattractive on our hot drinks or on our steamed vegetables, resulting in brighter, cleaner looking food and drink.Step 4 : Ultra Fine Mesh.
This final step of filtration ensures even the smallest particles don’t get through. The mesh is amongst the finest on the market resulting in clearer, brighter water.Step 5 : Engineered Fast Flow Technology.
The unique shape and structure of Aqua Optima means a consistent flat flow rate is maintained throughout the filter’s life. When it’s used in a kettle, this feature allows water to be filtered and boiled at the same time.
