Take Control of Your Drinking Water
What does pure filtered water mean to us?
We believe that access to clean, fresh water is fundamental to our health and wellbeing – and filtering our water ensures that this is achieved.
Most water filters remove some harmful chemicals and (perhaps) bacteria, which if consumed can cause diseases and general ill-health.
There are many other benefits of filtered water, including better taste, more cost-effective and environmentally-friendly when compared to buying bottled water.
The big reason for us that we see again and again is that unlike tap water, people understand that times have changed and our water isn’t what it was. It’s a direct result of our industrial and pharmaceutical complex creating contaminants our forefathers could never even conceive of. And we DON’T know what these (over 1000) contaminants are doing to us.
UltraStream: Far more than just another water filter
Chlorine Water Filter
Most municipal water utility companies use chlorine to treat drinking water. It is inexpensive, easy to add and highly effective at killing many of the bacteria found in water.
While it’s a good disinfectant, chlorine can make drinking water smell and taste unpleasant, and it can also react with some metals and organics to form hazardous compounds.
Today many town supplies use the cheaper but more toxic chloramines, only water filter using catalytic carbon (3x the cost of normal carbon) can filter out of the water. So most low-cost filters cannot remove this toxin.
The UltraSteam uses the world’s best water filter media Catalytic Carbon to remove Chlorine, Chloramines and VOC’s
Fluoride Water Filter
Fluoride is very difficult to remove from water – far harder than chlorine or chloramines or even heavy metals!
There are only two recognized ways to remove fluoride; specialised water filter media and RO (Reverse Osmosis) water filter.
The UltraSteam water filter uses a large adsorption layer of fluoride-specific media to remove fluoride.
Heavy Metals Water Filter
Heavy Metals such as lead are toxic when ingested, and it’s essential to remove them from drinking water. Lead and other heavy metals commonly get into drinking water when it seeps into the water supply from old plumbing pipes or the solder used to join them together.
Lead contamination achieved some notoriety in Flint Michigan, but there are at least 200 US cities with toxic levels of lead in their drinking water. You cannot see, taste, or smell lead in drinking water. The best way to know your risk of exposure to lead in drinking water is to identify the potential sources of lead in your service line and household plumbing.
The UltraStream uses the best KDF and Catalytic Carbon layers remove lead, mercury, cadmium, chromium, thallium and much more.
The most common sources of lead in drinking water are lead pipes, faucets, and plumbing fixtures.
Pesticide Water Filter
Farmland is often artificially drained, or natural drainage is enhanced by land drains. Water from excessive rainfall and irrigation cannot always be held within the soil structure.
This is how pesticides and residues (also nitrates and phosphates) contaminate groundwater and freshwater supplies over a large geographical area.
The UltraStream water filter removes a huge range of pesticides, herbicides and fungicides
Microplastics Water Filter
Microplastics are very small pieces of plastic that pollute the environment. They exist in our air, on our soil, and in our water.
Microplastics are any type of plastic fragment that is less than 5 mm in length according to the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. They enter natural ecosystems from a variety of sources, including, but not limited to, cosmetics, clothing, and industrial processes.
Latest reports indicate Americans consume the equivalent of a credit card of plastic daily in their water, food and air.
The UltraStream removes microplastics using 0.1-micron filter layers.
Filtering water borne viruses, bacteria and cysts
Traditionally the only way to remove viruses, bacteria and cysts for contaminant-laden water to pass through a very fine filtration (under 0.01 microns), the problem is these filters can become get clogged up easily or they remove the good alkaline minerals as well.
Virus Guardian (TM) doesn’t rely on particle size instead by creating a nanomesh of glass fibres coated with a charged mineral, this traps contaminants using electro-adhesion and ion exchange. There is no technology on the market that filters water like Virus Guardian.
Water Filter FAQs
A big question! What do you want it to do? If you simply want to improve the taste of your tap water, a simple benchtop carbon system is suitable, or a Brita jug. If you, like us, see the importance of drinking water free of the myriad chemicals, organisms and byproducts in our water today, you are in the right place. We’ve completed exhaustive testing over the expected life of the UltraStream filter to demonstrate to ourselves that it continues to work over its lifetime to remove not just taste and odour, but all of the acknowledged ‘problem’ contaminants in our water today.
Any way you filter tap water is an improvement on the slow drip poisoning we experience from long term tap water consumption. However, a water filter should fit in with your lifestyle and family situation. It should be simple to install and simple to use, not just for you, but for the kids! The UltraStream design was for simplicity of installation, of daily use, and for a simple filter change. And yet we challenge anyone to find a more comprehensive filtration system.
They aren’t bad. They just are simple filters mainly just for taste, If you are serious about the removal of the nastier contaminants in our water today, like chloramines, disinfection by-products, heavy metals, fluoride, viruses and more, you do need to invest more.
Yes, when your water is cleaner and tastes nicer you drink more and that’s only a good thing.
