Whole of House Systems

World Class Safe Water Systems, For Town and Tank water supplies.

WHOLE HOUSE SYSTEMS

AlkaWay has whole house Safe Water Systems for both town and tank water

Large capacity whole house filter systems are ideal for removing sediment and chlorine when your home is connected to town water. Alternatively, if you are on tank water we offer a whole house system that effectively removes sediment, pathogens, bad tastes and colour.

AlkaWay Whole House Safe Water Systems feature Industry Standard 4½” Diameter x 20″ Long Filters for inline installation providing safe water to your whole house or business.

AlkaWay has three configurations available – two for town water and one for tank/natural source water situations. Other configurations can be ordered from AlkaWay according to your Whole House requirements. It is generally advised that these systems be installed by a registered plumber. The benefits and specification of each AlkaWay Safe Water System are listed below.

Town Water

Essential Safe Water System

The Essential Safe Water System provides safe, clean water for a medium to a large house with 2 or more bathrooms on town water. It contains two commercial-size 20” filters:
1 micron (Absolute rated)* Sediment Filter and
20-micron Radial Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) Cartridge Filter.
Each filter is enclosed in 20” filter commercial strength housing.

* An absolute 1-micron filter traps 99.9 % of particles of 1-micron and larger. For additional information refer to the definition section at the bottom of this page.

Bore Water

Underground Safe Water System

Underground Safe Water System is designed for individual bores, as each bore is unique and may contain chemicals and micro-organisms that are potentially harmful. Some of these chemicals are naturally occurring (such as those present in soils and rocks) while others are a result of contamination. Bore water quality does change over time and it is not always possible to tell if bore water is contaminated or not.  We recommend having your bore water tested periodically, especially if you’re drinking or preparing food with the bore water.

We normally require laboratory test results at the bore and at the outlet of the water storage tank.  This data will help us customised your Underground Safe Water System for your bore water system.

Please contact our experts on 1800 268 469.

The UltraStream

AlkaWay Whole House Safe Water Systems are enhanced by the addition of an UltraStream. The UltraStream will filter out most fluoride whilst providing you with supercharged drinking water. The UltraStream is the world’s most advanced water filter unit. It purifies, alkalizes, ionizes and infuses the water with molecular hydrogen. These benefits add to those provided by the AlkaWay whole of house Safe Water Systems. The UltraStream would ideally be installed in your kitchen for drinking and cooking water. The UltraStream is available in Counter top and Undersink options.

Definitions

Nominal Rating

A nominal rating for a filter is an arbitrary value assigned by the filter manufacturer and is expressed in terms of a percentage retention of a given challenge media such as ISO standard test dusts or glass beads. The value may represent the percentage of the entire distribution of particles that is removed from the test fluid or the percentage of a specific sized particle. Nominal filtration ratings are often used when comparing the performance of depth and non-membrane filters.

Absolute Rating

An absolute rating is the size of the smallest particle retained by a filter with a stated efficiency, such as 99%, under defined test conditions. Absolute ratings are typically applied to membrane or high performance non-woven filters. With filter sizing as a general rule, the smaller the micron rating for a filter the better. However, there is a trade-off, flow capability usually drops off as the micron rating gets smaller, especially if the water has a lot of sediment.

Micron Rating

The average size of the openings between pieces of the filter media are represented in microns. For example, a 20 micron filter has larger openings than a 5 micron filter. Consequently, the 20 micron filter element will let larger particles pass through the filter than the 5 micron media would.
Bacteria range in size from 0.2 to 2 microns in width or diameter and from 1 to 10 microns in length for the non-spherical species, so a 1 micron filter will remove most bacteria and cysts.
If you are on municipal (town) water, the water has already been treated with chlorine, chloramines and/or fluoride to remove bacteria, so chances are you do not have a bacteria problem, unless there is a problem with the water pipes between the water reclamation plant and your home. Many customers purchase the 1-micron absolute for the kitchen because it can remove some pharmaceutical drugs too.
If you are on rain, river, and creek or bore water and have a bacteria problem, installing a 1 micron absolute rated water filter at the point of use will remove most of the bacteria (99.9%).
