The main issues facing users of Tank water are: Contamination by Cryptosporidium, Giardia, eColi and airborne organic compounds AND the fact that rain water is essentially distilled water which will rob your body of essential minerals. So, what is the Best Water Filtration for Tank Water? Here are 5 types of water filtration that are effective in purifying your tank water of the common bacteria and chemicals which can endanger your health.
- The Aqua Mountain Whole House Water Filtration with Ultraviolet Sterilisation. The most cost effective and total solution to ensure your tank water is safe is to use UV Sterilisation which will ensure 100% eradication of all Bacteria and Viruses from your house water supply. This 3 step filtration process delivers clean, sanitized water to all water points in your home – bathroom, laundry, kitchen, garden. The first step of filtration in this system removes all sediment, rust, sand, silt, and algae. The second step is the high quality 100% Coconut Carbon filter which removes chemicals including Volatile Organic Compounds while reducing chemicals that contribute to taste and odour. The Coconut Carbon filter delivers what many believe to be the sweetest tasting water. The final step of Ultraviolet sanitization produces germicidal short wave radiation, which eradicates bacteria, viruses and other kinds of microbiological contamination present in tank water. This system is the most comprehensive filtration for your home as it delivers safe, sanitized water to every water point in your home.
- The Aqua Mountain Under Sink Water Filter for Tank Water. This 2 step water filter system begins with a quality 0.5 Micron Sediment pre-filter to remove all sediment, rust, sand, silt, and algae. The second step is the High Quality 100% Coconut Carbon Block Cartridge with ultra fine filtration to 0.01 Micron. This filter takes away the need for powered U/V appliances. Besides removing chemicals, herbicides and pesticides this 0.01 Micron filter blocks bacteria like Giardia and Cryptosporidium which can present major health issues for Tank Water consumers. As this filter system only protects you at one water source in your home, it is not a complete answer for Tank Water users as is the Whole House Water Filter with UV Sterilisation.
- The Aqua Mountain Bench Top Water Filter with 0.5 Micron Ceramic Cartridge. This filter reduces Harmful Bacteria (such as E Coli, Cholera, Shigella, Salmonella, Klebsiella) to: >99.99%. With this filter system you can be sure you are drinking clean water free of bacteria commonly present in tank water. It is not a complete answer for your home as it is only treating water at one point in your home.
- The Aqua Mountain Alkalising Water Fountain. This 6 Step water filter delivers purified water at an alkaline pH of approximately 8 to 8.2. The fist step in this system is the 0.25 Micron Ceramic cartridge. This initial filtration stage is present to ensure that your water is free from sediments, solid impurities and other water-borne bacteria such as: Typhoid, Cholera, Amoeba, Cryptosporidium, Giardia, etc. The second stage of the filtration system removes Chlorine, THM, Organic Chemicals, and other unpleasant odor and discolouration. The third stage is filtered through the Bio-Ceramic Mineral Balls which activate water molecules, and enrich mineral water. The fourth stage is filtration through Zeolite. This component helps eliminate heavy metals such as: lead, mercury, gold, silver, and many others that are harmful to our bodies as they lead to a wide range of illness. The fifth stage is the Mineral Sands filter component which releases various minerals that enable in the conversion of acidic water into mild alkaline, which in turn allows us to restore the PH levels of our other bodily fluids. The final stage in this water fountain is the Mineral Stones cartridge. These stones are mined several hundred metres below sea level in an unpolluted and isolated island in Korea. These stones contain Germanium which promotes good health and helps in preventing cancer. This filtration process ensures you and your family receive pure, safe drinking water, but once again does not deliver the complete answer for your entire home.
- The Alkaway UltraStream. This 8 Step water filter delivers purified water at an alkaline pH of between 8.5 and 9.5 PLUS has the added benefit of being Hydrogen Rich water. The UltraStream will prevent the erosion of your skeletal structure by mineralizing your distilled tank water. The added benefits of Hydrogen enrichment by the UltraStream has numerous health benefits. The diagram below shows the 8 step filtration process. As an extra safeguard it would be advisable to install a prefilter for your UltraStream to remove sediment commonly found in tank water. Without this prefilter over a period of time you will most likely notice a slowing up of the water flow from your UltraStream due to sediment buildup from your tank water.
The unique piezo electric effect of Crystal Quartz helps to soften the water and stabilises the Oxidation/Reduction Potential to give you the best tasting, fully energized water.
O-Dobi beads were discovered after a ten year search for the perfect hydrogen and alkalizing natural media.
O-Dobi is a patented media designed specifically for a slow release of alkaline minerals calcium and magnesium, plus generation of infused molecular hydrogen. It slowly releases these elements to alkalize and to infuse the water with hydrogen gas. Tested to show 3x the hydrogen delivery of a $4000 electric ionizer.
Ceramic Magnets stabilize pH in the water by creating a strong magnetic field. Positioned after the O-Dobi to maintain its alkalizing effect.
Tourmaline is a semiprecious gem. It has the unique ability to soften water and impart far infra red energy. Tourmaline has a very soothing effect on nerves. It is also well known for its ability to aid in the detoxification process, for balancing metabolic functions, increasing vitality in living tissues and enhancing energy levels. Water is sweeter, softer and more delicious.
Patented KDF-85 is the best way to remove and neutralise heavy metals in your water. It has superior taste and odour reduction capabilities
It also reduces the effects of hard water and controls bacteria within the filter.
It’s also the most expensive filtration media in the world.
Our Catalytic Carbon is the best filtration carbon in the world with up to 8 times the surface area of ordinary granular carbon. Most activated carbon filters only remove chlorine. Catalytic Carbon also removes chloramines and far more VOC’s (volatile organics compounds)
It also removes toxins like volatile organics, trihalomethanes, pesticides, pharmaceuticals and more..
Activated Alumina is not to be confused with Aluminum. It’s actually the same substance as Ruby and Sapphires. Our life of filter tests show up to 70% reduction in fluoride. Fluoride is one of the hardest compounds to remove from water and a 70% reduction will drastically reduce your daily exposure to fluoride.
One Micron Filter Pads between each layer separate filter medias and protect against carbon ‘fines’ leaking into your water.
