Creates great tasting water removing more than 92% Fluoride, over 99% of Chlorine, Chloramine, Aluminium, Iron, Mercury, Lead and over 50 other volatile organic compounds. This system plumbs directly into your cold water line using your existing tap.
There are very few filters on the market that have been lab certified to address fluoride other than reverse osmosis systems, which only provide a limited flow and amount of water. This Easy Water filter combines simple attachment to most kitchen taps and high-end filtration. Constructed with the best components we can source, to ensure longevity and reliability.
The Apex 600Kpa (86psi) pressure-limiting valve is included to address pressure surges and possible equipment failure.
The first housing contains a Pentex Diamond Flow carbon block cartridge to address dirt, chlorine and chloramines. The second Cerametix cartridge addresses a wide range of contaminants, including fluoride removal.

Filtering – Removing toxins
If it tastes good, you drink it.
Making water taste great starts with removing the contaminants that nature didn't put there. Filtering not only improves the taste but is also part of making it healthier for you.
Today, there are literally thousands of pollutants in your water supply and many of these are not tested for. Herbicides, Pesticides, Pharmaceuticals, Heavy Metals, Fluoride and Chlorine are but a few to name.
Making water taste ok is not that difficult. Carbon filters address chlorine and sometimes chloramines (when chlorine is mixed with ammonia) but it doesn't really address the really hard to remove contaminants like fluoride.
Physically removing the contaminants from water is done by a range of different media — carbon, ceramic, KDF, Nano fibres and Reverse Osmosis membranes, to mention just a few.
Whatever form of filtration you choose, there are three principles to how they work.
Physical size – Absorption – Exchange
The particles in water make up something called Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) and obviously come in different sizes.
In the water industry these are measured in something called Microns. To give you a little context to understand what sizes we are talking about, a single strand of human hair is about 40-90 microns.
1 Micron = 1 Thousandth of a Millimeter.
1 Micron = 39 Millionth of an Inch (0.000039)
So when a product is rated 1 micron it will catch any contaminant that is larger than 1 micron. If it is smaller, then it will pass on through.
Ratings usually start at 20 microns for whole home systems all the way down to .0001 micron for Reverse Osmosis membranes. Most standard water systems that use a carbon block are 0.5 to 5 microns.
Filters – The major benefit of filtering is it greatly improves the taste of the water and it leaves the beneficial minerals intact, however, it often doesn't address some of the very small and difficult to remove nasties.
Reverse Osmosis – Long recognised as the best way to get the cleanest drinking water, it works by pushing water through a membrane under pressure so very few of the physical contaminants can make it through. There are a couple of down sides. First off, most of the beneficial minerals are also washed away. Secondly, it wastes a lot of water — around 4 litres or one gallon for every litre or quart made.
Pollutants in water are trapped in a chemical by the structure of the media.
When it comes to removing contaminants through absorption, carbon is the first port of call. One pound (450g) has approx 100 acres (40 hectares) of surface a area making it very efficient and effective at trapping things like Chlorine.
You will find that there is always a carbon filter before a membrane to neutralise the chlorine and chloramine, as they will damage the membrane if not removed.
There are other ways of cleaning water as well. These include such things as ion exchange, reduction and oxidation, which are more applicable to commercial applications.
Your body is 70% water.
Water is your most important fuel.
- It hydrates your skin
- Replenishes your bodily organs
- Feeds your brain oxygen – so you can think!
Your body craves natural water to restore and rebuild your energy. Because common water is stale, flat, and old, it doesn't properly hydrate you. It is low in oxygen – which is energy. This leads to tiredness, lethargy, and the non-absorption of water and minerals. Can you see how water might be the missing link in your health? Real, natural water is charged with powerful minerals and life-giving oxygen that's vital to your physical health. By drinking it, we:
- Delay ageing
- Absorb food nutrients better
- Ensure more radiant skin
- Sleep deeper
- Enjoy good digestion
- Experience more mental clarity
- Improve muscle recovery
- Increase flexibility
Water from nature contains organic acids that balance alkaline minerals. This delicate balance forms the magical formula that is perfect for your body.
Your hydration is the fundamental factor to your health. While we have become increasingly aware of how diet and exercise can improve our general well-being and quality of life, the water that we drink largely remains something that we take for granted.
Take your hydration seriously.
