What does the filter actually filter?
The AlkaWay filter is tested to remove or reduce many common harmful elements that may be found in your tap water and US river water. Its coconut activated carbon removes 99.9% of Giardia and Cryptosporidium – the most commonly found parasites in US lakes and streams, and reduces heavy metals like lead, toxic chemicals like chlorine, sediments, and dirt.
How do I know when the filter is no longer working?
Your AlkaWay Bottle filter will filter up to 380 litres of water. Your filter will become more difficult to use, and you may notice a difference in taste of your water. At this time, the filter is no longer working and should be replaced.
Does the filter ever need cleaning?
No. The AlkaWay filter utilizes Miraguard Antimicrobial Technology by Aquamira Techologies to keep your filter clean throughout its lifetime. Do not use soap or cleanser on the filter as you might damage it and plug the microscopic pore openings which will prevent it from working.
What is the filter’s life expectancy?
The AlkaWay filter will clean up to 380 litres of water, depending on your source water’s concentration of particulates.
How should the filter be maintained and stored?
You can air dry your filter and store it in a cool, dry place. No special packaging is necessary to store it safely, but please be sure to rinse it thoroughly after extended periods of non-use.
