We stock a variety of water filtration and purification systems, the replacement filters and have an equipped technician who can help you service the water systems.
Choosing a water system that meets you and your family’s needs can be a daunting task. We have been in the water purification business for longer than 7 years and are available in store to assist you with choosing the best system that will meet your needs as well as your budget.
I will briefly discuss each system and how it works on this page. For further details, you are welcome to check out the frequently asked questions section on our blog page. Should you not find what you are looking for, you are more than welcome to add your question there. Alternatively, please contact us and we will gladly assist with any queries you may have; be it for a new system or an existing system you already own.
In our experience, clients fall into one of 4 categories when consulting with us:
- The health conscious, sporty, big water drinkers.
- The people that know that should not drink tap water.
- The people that don’t feel that the germs and viruses in the water are a major issue.
- Those that say that there is nothing wrong with the tap water.
You will be glad to know that there is a system for each category. Systems also fall into different basic categories, namely:
- The system that purifies the water and takes everything out, and puts the important minerals back into the water.
- The system that filters the water but leaves the minerals and finer matter in the water.
- The system that only filters, Sediment, Chlorine and heavy metals.
Please note that I will mention the basic domestic water systems available and what one can add to each system and how they work. We can also however assist with industrial and semi-industrial water purification systems on request.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ALL THE WATER FILTRATION SYSTEMS?
Each system has different filtration or purification methods. The diagram above simplifies the different systems and what they filter out. In other words, Microfiltration removes the least from the water and Reverse Osmosis removes the most from the water.
Most systems use Microfiltration as a form of Pre-filtration. This is done to lengthen the life span of the more expensive filtration stages.
For example, the Sediment Filter, also known as ‘Stage 1’ of most filtration systems has a 5 Micron pore size. This catches the sediment or dirt, basically anything that is bigger than 5 micron. The more contaminants removed before the membranes, the better. The membranes then also don’t work so hard and last longer.
HOW SMALL IS 1 MICRON?
1mm = 1000 Micron
HOW SMALL IS A GERM?
Salmonella, for example, has cell diameters between approximately 0.7 and 1.5 µm, lengths from 2 to 5 µm (micron).
HOW SMALL ARE THE PORES OF A REVERSE OSMOSIS MEMBRANE?
The pores of the Reverse Osmosis Membrane are 1/10 000 000mm.
We stock all the different replacement filters that one can use for domestic water filtration, whether it be for your kitchen or your whole household use.
Please note that only the most common filters, their descriptions, uses, service intervals and prices are discussed here. Feel free to contact us with your more specific needs.
