Contaminants Removed by Eco Gravity Water Filters
Waterborne Disease: Cryptosporidium & E-coli etc are parasites typically above 2μm (microns) & are removed by the ceramic outer shell (.9μm).
Chemicals: Chlorine, Fluoride, Pesticides, THM’s, Phenols, Petrochemicals, PFOA's (C8), etc Suspended
Solids & Heavy Metals: Micro plastics, Lead, Copper, Mercury, Cadmium, Chromium, Fluoride, Aluminium, Nickel, etc
Microplastics: The smallest micro plastics in tap and bottled water in the Orb Study were found to be 2.2 microns across. Our filters filter everything greater than1 micron
Taste the difference
Water purified by our Ceramic Water Filters have had impurities, bacteria’s, amoeba’s, chemical’s and heavy metals removed. Only the natural flavours will remain. Imagine tea and coffee, only perfection of flavour with no after tastes or odours.
Water is life
Making up approximately two-thirds of the human body, feeding cells, moisturising tissue and circulating within us as the main component of blood. It is essential to ensure a regular intake of clean water (2-3 litres per/day) to generate cell production and ensure the continuing healthy function of your body. The Carahealth Gravity Fed Water Filters are the easy way to obtain clean pure and in expensive water essential for a healthy body and clean skin. Gravity Water Filtered water may also reduce allergies common in children and adults arising from drinking non-filtered water or water filtered with plastic.
How does the Gravity Water Filter work?
By filling the top reservoir with tap, well, river or rain water, the forces of gravity naturally allow the water to seep through the micro-porous ceramic walls of the candle dripping steadily & collecting in the bottom reservoir as clean drinking water.
Ceramic Filter Candle
The filter is naturally constructed of ceramic & charcoal. It screens the water down to 1 Micron thus removing bacteria & suspended solids including fluoride & microplastics. Water then passes through the activated silver carbon particle core, removing chemicals, heavy metals, pesticides & odours. Taste the difference!
The candle needs to be cleaned regularly (monthly) with a soft brush & rinsed. To maintain effectiveness replace candles every 6 months - 1 year maximum. This varies depending on the condition of your water supply.
Cryptosporidium, E-coli & Microplastics
Cryptosporidium & E-coli are parasites typically of several microns in size and are removed by the ceramic part of the cartridges, which filters down to 1 micron & micro plastics are defined as being as smoall as 2.2 microns. Cryptosporidium oocysts are extremely resistant, making them almost impossible to kill chemical disinfectants and chlorine are useless! The best solution therefore is the complete removal using a ceramic cartridge. Cryptosporidium often occurs in the form of a resistant spore (oocyst). Please note Britta filters DO NOT remove cryptosporidium, E-Coli & Micro Plastics
History of Gravity Fed Ceramic Filters
In 1835, Queen Victoria recognised the present health dangers in her drinking water and commissioned a water filter for the Royal household. The gravity fed stoneware filter was born, this combined the technology of a ceramic filter with the artistry of a hand crafted pottery water container. These are still in use today and are the basis of international water purification where mains suppliers are not present or are unaffordable.
Importance of Minerals in Drinking Water
Pure water is a term which means, "Free from tainting or polluting matter". Therefore, pure drinking water is fresh water without pollutants and not processed water where all your naturally occurring mineral constituents have been artificially extracted. A complex mix of naturally occurring elements are present in our water and humans have evolved with these elements present and derives benefit from them.
Do I need to remove Fluoride?
Yes! 90% of the EU says no already. Many independent specialists condemn the addition of fluoride to your drinking water. No proven benefits exist. The addition of fluoride to drinking water has been linked with increased risk of bone cancer, thyroid disease, damage to the central nervous system and has been banned by a number of EU countries.
Fluoride is in bottled water!
Most people dont realise that bottled water is only filtered tap water in most cases and as fluoride is not removed under normal filtration processes, most bottled water contains fluoride. Bottled water also poses an environmental nightmare to say the least. The most environmentally friendly way to filter your water is using a Carahealth Gravity Fed Water Filter that uses no electricity ever and leaves the healthful minerals in.
Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, believed that to cure the patient you need to stimulate the "Ponos" or the self-healing spirit of the body. He did this through optimum nutrition and pure drinking water!
